Are you brave?

What is the bravest thing you have ever done? That is a question I was recently asked. It had me thinking. I quickly answered: “Fighting off the group of hobos that were attacking me last week.”
But was that really the answer? I wont lie, I felt like quite the lion after that encounter yet when I think about it now that moment I probably wasn’t at my bravest. True, it was the moment I could quickly refer to then because it had recently happened, but when I look back now – without all the ‘give a quick response’ pressure now, I definitely have a few more answers. Lol, the absolute truth is the question of what’s brave? Differs from person to person and just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, courageousness is in the judgement of the candidate. If I were to re-answer that question after some careful consideration, the bravest thing I have done is agreeing to go back to school after just one year off for recovery, after being involved in a fatal car accident. Truth is I wasn’t fully healed when I went back to school and I didn’t allow other people’s opinions (including some doctors) stop me. What is the bravest thing you have done?
