Sometimes

People don’t always set out to become brave-sometimes people set out to be better, to get by, to survive, with their souls intact. Sometimes people see things in themselves they don’t like and want to change that thing- only that thing becomes an onion and each peeling reveals more work.  Sometimes people put their heads down and work and work and work, and then as the layers dissolve, they become a little easier to face, each one less and less intimidating- and sometimes people suddenly realize they have revealed something glorious, something wonderful and something brave in the core of their being.
