It didn’t feel brave. Instead I felt helpless and worried and curious and a little frightened I think.

You shouldn’t be old enough to do this right now. You shouldn’t be wanting to spread your wings and fly. Not now. Not ever.

Why? Because you’re my baby. Because you’re my first born. Because I want to keep you home with me forever. Doesn’t every mom?

But instead I have to be brave. Heck, who am I kidding? You have to be brave as well. Because I realize this is new territory for you too. New, exciting territory.

So this is me, being brave. I want you to experience life to the fullest but in order for you to do that, brave is what I must be.

I love you. Go fly. Explore. Dream. Be you. Be brave.
