What's your bravery story? Here's ours...

 

"One of my best friends was in an abusive relationship.  She'd been trapped in it for over 7 years and was barred by her partner from contacting me.  We'd try our best to keep in touch in secret but it was difficult. For every message I sent, it came with the fear of real consequences on who may pick it up first.  

One day a ping on my phone came through.  It said
"I know I need to leave him".  
I could feel the change in energy.  I wrote back
"What would you say to yourself if you were your best friend"
She replied
"To put my brave girl pants on and get on with it"
I replied. "Ok, so do that".
And she did.

These pants are for those very moments. They are for all the warriors out there.  The brave, incredible, sensitive, beautiful, gallant, caring, authentic people as a token of support, love and appreciation.  

Gift them to yourself and wear them to 'that' family occasion, to an important pitch, to the gym as you train, to support you as you struggle with sadness, illness, grief or overwhelm, to remind yourself everything that you are, and all that you have conquered to be here today.

Or gift them to a friend to remind them of who they are underneath, of their heart so big it could burst, of their compassion so strong it can heal, of their intelligence and fearlessness, of their strength when life seems against them, and of their downright awesomeness that the world needs more of".
