Are Your Fences a Barrier Brave?

I don’t know about you, but I find that my biggest barriers to brave are often of my own making.  I suspect I’m not alone.

When I was growing up we lived about 10 miles out town (I was a country mouse) and I rode my bike everywhere.  I thought nothing of pedaling the 7 miles each way to my best friend’s house to hang out, when her family moved closer to town.  I did what a kid had to do […]
