“You’ve got a lot of nerve!”

Isn’t it amazing how that’s considered a bad thing? We’re supposed to be quiet, not make waves, put everyone and everything before ourselves and do it with a smile on our face…ugh. Can you tell I’m feeling touchy? Guess there’s something in the air.

I think we need more people with nerve. Speak up even when it’s uncomfortable. Try the new things, see what you like and what you don’t. Choose kindness even when it seems weird to reach out to people. Stop worrying about what it looks like and just do the next right thing.

If we all showed that kind of nerve we’d be much better off.

Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
