This really touched me because I just recently took an online course with Brave Girls Camp and so I though't I'd share some of those details:
I started this journey not knowing at all what to expect and a bit nervous! I have to say that I did feel at the begining that I wasn't so sure I should be in the class for two reasons! My first reason - maybe it was an excuse - There are so many women out there that have had terrible things happen to them, or are going through hard times right now and here I was not really having anything awful have happened - I started to feel like this wasn't for me! Then someone posted a comment that we need to remember that we each have our own story - bad OR good! I needed that! Once I realized that I didn't have to have a sad story to share it made it easier, I still have had tough things happen including my Grandfather pass away unexpectedly right before Christmas - almost 2 years to the date that my uncle passed away from cancer. I realized these are all things I could learn from and could grow from these experiences and these are my hard times. I will be able to take what I have learned with me into the future for any struggles I might have to go through and this class has made me be able to do that!
My second "reason" I wasn't so sure about htis class is that I am NOT crafty at all! I am amazed by all of the amazing things the women out there in this class and the crafting world can do! I truely admire them and wish I could have that ability - this is just something I wasn't born with. I have to try very hard to be crafty! However, through the class I was able to find a bit of my inner craftiness and was very pleased with how my projects turned out! I learned to be TRUE to myself with the projects and go with what felt right for me and what inspired me - not what others were doing - that wouldn't help me in the process!
I feel have become more patient with myself which in turn has led me to be more patient with others around me and to be more understanding. I have learned to take a step back and try to see all sides of the story and know that at anytime the person we are talking with might be going through a struggle that we don't even know about - so we need to be gentle with ourselves and with others we meet!
