I’ve written about Melody Ross and her “Brave Girl” club more than once.
Melody is an artist, but she’s hit some rough spots in life that have left her very much wanting to help people see their own value. Her “little bird” messages in my inbox were something I looked forward to every day.
A few weeks ago, I quit getting the messages, and was planning to look into why, but got distracted and didn’t do it. Somehow even thinking about them slipped through the cracks in my mind.
Then I was looking through my spam for an unrelated missing message, and lo and behold, there were all my little bird messages.
What a blessing!
I have not been feeling very good about myself lately. I’ve disappointed myself on more than one front. I’ve had a hard time focusing on anything. I’ve been letting things I need to do go undone. I’ve let my physical space get too cluttered, and my mind isn’t much better.
And so finding my little pep talks all waiting to be read was a ray of sunshine in my day. Although as I read them and teared up, you wouldn’t know I was happy!
If you know me at all, you know I have a black belt in beating myself up, whether I deserve it or not, but ESPECIALLY when I mess up. I’m trying so hard to work on my deficiencies, while walking that line between being gentle with myself and holding myself accountable. Melody came to my rescue today, showing me the kindness I have so much trouble showing myself.
You don’t have to already be a brave girl to appreciate what Melody has to offer. She will help you to be brave.
If you haven’t signed up for the little bird messages, do something nice for yourself, and do it!
