mac style warrior brave new bronze

Good morning, glories. ๐Ÿ™‚


How’d you sleep?

I’ve only been awake for a few minutes, which means I’m nowhere near awake yet, LOL!

The coffee is brewing, and I’m sitting here at my computer desk, catching up on the news…

The New York Times has a fascinating article about beauty schools and how the curriculum has changed over the past 20 years.

Tabs is stretched out on the floor under my chair and purring loudly. He’s getting a massage from my toes.

I just remembered — I have a birthday coming up this week, whoa! Yup, I’m heading full speed towards my mid-30s.

Age is a funny thing, ladies…

I have a better understanding of myself and the world around me than I had in my 20s, but I’m becoming more resistant to change, more set in my ways. I used to be more willing to take risks! — with my career, my hobbies, travel, you name it.

I think that adventurous girl’s still in there somewhere, but she is getting harder to find.

I hope I’m brave enough to take some chances this year…

Brave like the name of the prize in today’s MAC Style Warrior giveaway!

The prize

One lucky lady will win a tube of creamy MAC Style Warrior Brave New Bronze Lipstick (a $14 value).

How to enter

To enter, please leave a comment below describing the bravest thing you’ve ever done or plan to do soon.

Tell me about your biggest leap of faith or greatest act of courage, a choice that changed your life or took a lot of guts for you to do.

I went skydiving about 10 years ago.

Sometimes I can’t believe I went through with it. They had me sign a waiver where the words “death and dismemberment” came up repeatedly, LOL! But I did it.

Now, whenever something scares or intimidates me, I tell myself, “Karen, you jumped out of a plane. This isn’t half as scary as that.”

I’ll pick the winner at random from among the people who enter by 11:59PM PST Monday night.

Good luck, my brave friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I had a blast at yesterday’s NARS event in the city. I’m prepping some pictures and tips and will post them very soon.

  3. Karen says:

    I gotta say the bravest thing i’ve done is kill this really ugly spider. lol i’m deathly afraid of insects so it’s a huge accomplishment for me.

  4. I think the bravest thing (and best) I ever did was leave my ex, who I had been with for almost 10 years and lived with for 5.

    I too have a bday coming up in 11 days but I am barreling fast into my late 30’s, wah!

  6. carlie says:

    Mine was starting college in my early 30’s. I’m now in my mid 30’s, and still in.. and I still feel I’m the oldest, other than the prof. of course LOL. My oldest son will be starting in 2 years, and I think I’ll still be in when he’s in. Now that’s scary.

  7. Jennifer says:

    oh my,
    i will have to say when i jumped off the 10 meter diving block,
    so that my team could win our local amazing race!
    and i’m terrified of heights!

  8. Yasmine says:

    The bravest thing I have done is leave a small town and move to a bigger city by myself. Now I’m happy, starting my senior year in college and planing to move to another country.

  9. Melissa C says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done is move after college to Taiwan, where I didn’t speak the language or have any friends/family.

  10. steph says:

    wow happy birthday in advance!

    anyways, the bravest thing I had to do was quit my full-time job and pursue my passion in makeup ๐Ÿ™‚

    steph´s last blog post..Contest Entry – Being Filipino

  11. amanda says:

    Hmmm… I guess probably moving away from home/family after college.

  12. Luv J says:

    The bravest thing I have ever done is — natural child birth (yep epidural-free)! I know I’m not the first, nor the only one that had done this, but for someone who will holler for an EMT in an event of a paper cut, this is something that will go down in our family’s “Ripley’s Believe It or Not record book”!

  13. Sarah says:

    The bravest thing ive ever done, (and im a big weeeeenie) is jump off of a boat in the middle of the ocean in Maui (at the molokini crater) to go snorkeling.

    The second i jumped off, I started to hyperventilate as my loving bf swam off to explore without me. As i start to have a panic attack while the waves were pushing me back n forth…. i began to gain strength and enjoyed the beautiful ocean floors of Maui ๐Ÿ™‚

    Im sure snorkeling is one of the easiest things to do…. but that sure as hell was one of the bravest thing ive done! hahah

  14. Nina says:

    I love Brave New Bronze! Hope I’m lucky this time!
    So far the bravest thing I have done was to follow what my heart desired and not do what everyone told me I was supposed to do!

  15. Zara says:

    :< mmph. My life has been very vanilla up to this point, I regret to say.

    I would like to do something daring… someday. Maybe be financially independent form my folks is the first thing i’d like to do.

  16. Marta says:

    Getting married LOL I left my country because of my hubby.

  17. Amy says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done was traveling overseas alone! It took a huge leap of courage and was the most independent thing I’ve ever done, as well. Totally worth it!

  18. Elisia says:

    Leaving a crappy relationship.

  19. Indian Girl says:

    Go alone on my first air trip !

  20. joanne says:

    I think I’m in the midst of the bravest thing I’ve done. I’m planning to open a business with a friend while trying to finish a dissertation and with barely a dollar to my name. Let’s keep those fingers crossed!

  21. Rachel says:

    Moving from a major city to real obscurity lol. It hasn’t been so bad!

  22. Charm says:

    Well, I think that the bravest thing I did recently was to stop a fight between a man and a woman. I even had to call the police but it ended well, thank God.

  23. Gina says:

    The bravest thing I ever did was apply to, attend and GRADUATE from Law School. It was such a challenge and something I am so proud of

  24. Kypris says:

    Oh I love heights, I really want to try skydiving sometime! Or maybe I’ll just do hang gliding instead… less chance of ‘death’ and ‘dismemberment’, I’m sure.

    Bravest thing I’ve ever done… take two courses’ worth of sailing classes (that’s about 4 weeks) on the ocean; I have quite a phobia of the ocean and so I was terrified for about 6 hours every day for 4 weeks. Capsizing and getting caught in the ropes underwater just made it worse.

  25. Erin says:

    When I was 16, I was extremely overweight. I got to the point where I was willing to do anything to get myself healthier and looking and feeling better… and I knew that swimming was something I can do well, and it’s wonderful exercise. However, I was in awful shape. I ended up needing to swim with kids years younger than me.. but I still did it, and ended up giving up the summer in between my sophomore and junior years to swim with them every morning. It was slightly hellish, but it got me back into my exercise groove. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve lost about 80lbs and counting since then.

  26. Heather says:

    The bravest thing I have ever done was change my career from a fashion buyer to a now current premed student. What was I thinking? I have never been so tired or stressed out in my life!

  27. Nikki says:

    moving to another country less than 2 weeks after i turned 18!

  28. Alicia says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done was moving to Japan, at 19, and becoming an English teacher over there.

  29. ritadebora says:

    Teaching Philosophy when I was an intern and I was 21 at the time and a couple of students from the 10 and 11 grade were almost my age. Now I look back and I don’t know how I did it, but I’m most proud that I did it!!!

  30. Cindy says:

    The bravest thing i did (so far) was going on a holiday to Spain, all by myself. From the place i stayed i took the train and went to Barcelona, and stayed there for 1 day.

  31. Jenn says:

    actually, I want to change my “bravest thing” from the previous post. For me it was probably deciding to join my HS swim team. I was not an exceptionally good swimmer, and I had never been on a sports team in my life. Also, I was self conscious of not being good, shy, and kind of intimidated by some girls on the team (who I knew kind of from classes and stuff, but wasn’t really friends with) who were really good and top of the team. I ended up doing swim team for 2 years and was really proud of that!

    I want to eventually move out on my own….

  33. lauren says:

    I haven’t been that brave yet but I’ve still got time!

  34. Anne says:

    Happy Birthday soon!

    I would say my bravest moment was standing in front of two men fighting with jungle bolos in their hands, its a long story. This was back while I was still living in the Philippines. hehheh scary but its a true story.

  35. Bj says:

    Probably finishing school, and opening up a shop/salon/makeup bar. Thats my goal!

  36. Redhead says:

    The bravest thing I’ve done in the past was getting up to sing in front of 600 people! It was crazy, but I had fun. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m also going to be brave this summer and audition for the role of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz at my local theater!

  37. Mary says:

    I studied abroad in Ghana for 5 months. I did a lot of things I hadn’t done before!

  38. Shivotra says:

    I haven’t done anything brave yet…so I guess it will be in the future. ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Laura says:

    I left a bad marriage–the scariest and best thing I’ve ever done!

  40. Michelle says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done is audition for a play my freshman year of high school. I don’t think anything took more courage for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. April M. says:

    oh man! I must be chicken, I can’t think of a single thing where i had to be brave:] maybe being a mother, you always have to be brave for your little one.

  42. erica says:

    happy early birthday ๐Ÿ™‚
    and thanks for that article, i actually was planning to attend the poway beauty school at some point in my life after college, the one mentioned in the article!

    i’d have to say the bravest thing i’ve ever done was take a job teaching, even though i thought i would not like working with children, i love it & am working towards getting my teaching credentials at CSUSM!

  43. geekchic says:

    i went skydiving too! it was awesome and felt like flying, but man, that moment before you jump out of the plane is the scariest thing everrrr.

  44. Dao says:

    Let me see: the bravest thing I’ve ever done would be to convince my parents to let me do what I do best, career-wise. It took me some tissues and lots of tears but I pulled through.

    Dao´s last blog post..Total Beauty Weekly Web Tour 6/1-6/7

  45. Sharon says:

    The bravest thing I have ever done was go alone on a student exchange program, and live on my own for 2 month in a foreign land.

  46. Nadine says:

    I felt very brave in creating my own college major that didn’t exist at my university and leaving behind the majoring in a hard science!

  47. Cherie Mok says:

    The bravest thing I ever did is taking up nursing course, for other people said to me that I’m stupid, how can a person ,who scare of blood and faint if she will see it, will take up nursing. But I did it and I just graduated this year!

  48. SmT says:

    I opened up to my very conservative father that I was in love with an ethnicity of persons he wasn’t at all comfortable with.

  49. Sally says:

    One of the bravest things I have ever done is zip-line through the Costa Rican rainforest!

  50. Danitza Zarate says:

    Well I have been brave enough to decide to start losing my overweight … I am too young to start having problems of health and all those things. I just started and so far I feel great. And I mean brave to REALLY do it because sometimes you say “yes ill lose weight” and start a diet but after a month you back to the bad habits … and this time I am brave enough to trust in myself and take action. And also, I just started my blog about losing weight and make up … I am very new in typing and make photos but if u have a chance to read it and give me advices, ill be very grateful =)

  51. Shiny says:

    I’ve had a fairly tame life… I think my taking off to another country for 3 months counts as brave for me.

  52. Nicole15 says:

    After reading all the others, it seems as though my life is a little boring ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, i felt pretty brave when i picked up 4 years ago & moved out of my home town in New Jersey where I had lived for 27 years & relocated to South Florida. Two totally different cultures & ways of living & I knew noone. But i did it & i felt good about being able to leave my comfort zone & still succeed!

  53. Sylvie says:

    I’ve spoken English all my life, been educated in English all my life and I left my family at 18 to live alone half way across the globe, gave up the opportunity to go to top universities in the world (and by top I mean TOP) to come to France and do Engineering in French and live my life in French when I could have been doing that elsewhere much more easily. So now it really irks me when I know people who have 3.8GPA in some university in the UK or US think they are so great because if they were really courageous at all, they would have taken the road not taken, done what I did, come here, start my life over from scratch and have my intelligence here treated like it didn’t exist.

  54. gio says:

    Th bravest thing I’ve ever done was learn how to drive.

    gio´s last blog post..Site Makeover!

  55. Milan says:

    Bravest thing I plan to do is sky dive! My brother did it last year for his 30th and next time he goes (because he wants to do it again) i’m in!

    Milan´s last blog post..Mehron Pastel Cake Palette Swatches!

  56. Ms. B says:

    Bravest thing I’ve ever done get a tattoo for my 21st birthday, all by myself.

  57. Allie says:

    This may not sound very brave to some people, but I recently held a coral snake! Snakes were probably my biggest fear and a very common one, so I’m happy to have conquered it. It was fun and when I looked at the snake’s face I thought, “Wow, she looks kinda cute!” What a natural high.

  58. auroragyps says:

    I think my bravest moment would be going back to Buffalo, NY after a visit to my parent’s house, during which my husband told me over the phone he wanted a divorce. I suffer form a social anxiety disorder & depression, so taking the train to travel can be tense as it is. Many people have told me that they wouldn’t have been able to do what I did and they don’t even have those problems.

  59. Vanessa S says:

    The bravest thing that I had ever done was to become a police officer.

  60. Shereen says:

    I come from a very strict, very traditional Filipino family. So the bravest thing I’ve ever done was run away from home when I was 18. I went from NJ all the way to Cali. I had a cousin that was willing to help me until I got back on my feet or worked things out with my fam.

  61. Solรƒยฉ says:

    The bravest thing I have ever done was to leave my psychotic ex-husband and move 350 miles away to start a new life in LA. Oh, and my gastric bypass. My 20s were pretty cathartic.

  62. Rani says:

    My friends had dared me to go an entire 3 days without makeup (like NO!) and I actually did it. Call me crazy and maybe they should have put a public warning so people in the streets didn’t run screaming, but I think it was pretty brave to go au natural.

    But now that that’s over, I’m going back to my Makeup Addiction full swing! Ah, how I loves my makeup!

  63. christina n says:

    bravest thing i’ll be doing next year is joining a diversity program at my school and challenging myself to be a more confident person!

  64. Jessica says:

    Okay so i’m the most irresponsible 22 year old around always, always procrastinating and never finishing ANYTHING (seriously, i started painting my nails right now and got bored and came to the computer). But since i’ve met my main squeeze i’ve realized that i gotta get moving on life and starting in august i’ll be starting the respiratory therapy program at my school – and if i’m late once, i risk getting kicked out! it’s only an associate’s degree, but it’s a big deal for me. it’s a lot of discipline and hard work – a no-no in jessica’s ideal world. that’s why i feel so brave doing something that i know wil be the hardest thing i’ll ever do. but really, i’m doing it all for the ability of buying makeup whenever i want.

  65. Newsha says:

    I’m about to start dating again after a very looooooooong absence from the dating world. And the absence wasn’t because I was in a relationship. I’m such a chicken when it comes to guys.

  66. Josay says:

    Great color!!! I want to win!!!

  67. jane says:

    hmm. i haven’t done anything super brave yet.

    maybe i admired a friend who was studying abroad from korea and took a trip alone to iceland. maybe i’ll do that some day ๐Ÿ˜€

  68. Kandice says:

    Hello Karen!

    The bravest thing I’ve done was to leave my kids father, who was both physically and verbally abusive and an alcoholic. It took some time but I did it and he is now in prison due to the charges I filed against him! I’m only 27 and it’s hard being a single mom, working six days a week, and pursuing my BA as a full time student but for the first time, I feel like I can accomplish anything.

  69. Glosslizard says:

    I think the bravest thing I’ve ever done was to take the leap and have a baby! I was terrified! After all, if you change your mind, you can’t un-have children! Fortunately, I’m really happy with my choice! ๐Ÿ™‚

  70. Janet says:

    The bravest thing I’ve done is backpack throughout europe BY MYSELF!!!

  71. Gail says:

    Going to another country & not knowing the language with my boyfriend of one month when I was in my 20’s – we stayed for 3 mts – This was over 30 years ago – WOW – Boy am I old.

  72. A says:

    I am going back to school for another 6+ years to become a doctor!

  73. Gracie says:

    Going to China on a school trip by myself in the seventh grade ๐Ÿ™‚ yup, no parents, just 12 other kids from my middle school, three teachers, and a tour guide. Also we stayed with our exchange students for a week, so basically I was completley by myself in a foreign country staying with someone I barely knew. Plus I was only 13. I think that’s the bravest thing I’ve ever done.

  74. Mira says:

    once natural, once emergency C-section.

  84. Sylvie says:

    LOVE THIS COLOR! WANT! I’ve lived a pretty boring life. The bravest thing I ever did was to finally leave a mentally abusive 4-year relationship. I never looked back and am so happy to be away from this man.

  85. Charan says:

    The bravest thing i have done is getting married. Ours was an arranged marriage so I have never met him before, not even talked with each other and after hearing so many horror stories about the hubby getting psyco after marriage, I still don’t know how I said yes.He is such a lovely guy ๐Ÿ™‚ .We were engaged for 6 months and i still had doubts but in the end it turned out to be the best decision ever.

  90. Kara Linkowski says:

    Thank you for all your inspirational blogs. It’s so easy for women to relate to you. I’d have to say the bravest things I’ve ever done was move across the country to attend college when I was 18. I was all alone and scared out of my mind, but I did it!

  91. RuBie says:

    The bravest thing I’ve done is going backpacking alone in Europe for 2 weeks, visiting small towns where no one speaks English and I couldn’t even order a coffee.

    It was an experience of great fun though!

  92. maddie says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done is get back in touch with my first love–after 20 long years! I had no idea what would come of it, but so far, so good ๐Ÿ˜‰

  93. T says:

    Leaving my family, friends, and new boyfriend behind to study abroad.

  94. Jane says:

    Bravest thing I ever did (for 11 months) was breast-feeding my baby. Totally worth the pain and tears (during the first few weeks).

  95. Lexi says:

    I swam with great white sharks.

    It was the most terrifying moment in my life! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Two years ago I went scuba diving in Guadalupe Island, Mexico with my friends. On the second day there, after a couple of diving lessons, we donned our wetsuit and masks. After a short boat ride out into the ocean, my friend and I were put into a cage, and lowered into the clear blue water. It was only a surface cage, so it wasn’t too far from the boat. My heart started pumping when I spotted two 14 to 18 foot great white sharks as they swam around and fed. I knew that if I left the cage, I would be eaten by the sharks. There were a few close encounters, when the shark got too close to the cage, and many times, I worried about the durability of the cage.

    When it was over, I came away unscathed, feeling very accomplished, and thankful that I was able these magnificent creatures up close!!

  96. MZ_Georgia says:

    THe bravest thing I ever did …. Would have to be reading the eulogy at my mother’s fneral. It was such a hard day to begin with having to say good bye, but having to speak publicly and especially at such a hard time was nerve racking. I have always admired public speakers and their eas and confidence, which I had a hard time mustering at such a difficult time. But I did it and just thought about how I wanted everyone to know what my mom meant to me. I am soo happy I did it.

  97. Patti says:

    Going to graduate school in another country and moving away from home was definitely the bravest and most grown-up thing I had to do so far. I am still hanging on so far!!!

  98. Suri says:

    The bravest thing I have ever done was become a teacher. It was the career I should have been doing since college, but I was terrified that I would be horrible. I took the plunge 4 years ago and haven’t had a regret since.It’s an amazing CAREER and it’s benefits and payoffs are beyond plentiful.

  99. Vickie says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done was start my own business!

  100. eileen says:

    hmmm…bravest thing I have ever done was loving someone who (I later realized) didn’t really love me back. He was my first “love” but looking back I know that it wasn’t mutual.

    Happy early birthday!

  104. Nikki says:

    The bravest thing I’ve done? when I was 23 yrs old, I’ve decided to move to China in an unknown province to be a teacher with a one year contract! I don’t know what to expect and I don’t have a clue on what my life would be! Looking back, I’m glad I’ve done it, made me a strong woman !

    the bravest thing that i ever did was to leave my job with no real other job going to so that i cud be a professional makeup artist. i didn’t have lots of jobs coming my way, but i was so fed up with doing something i didnt love for a living. so i took a step of faith, and shortly after leaving, i got my first call! it was hard because i had a massive credit card bill, but even so, because i stepped out in faith, i got the opportunity and had the ‘free time’ to be available to do makeup for a movie which paid so well i was able to pay my credit card bill off totally and then some! THANK GOD! i pray i win…seriously, i don’t want brave new bronze to run out and being in jamaica it’s nowhere near me….even online they won’t accept my card. thanks Karen for giving this away!

  113. christa says:

    the bravest thing i’ve done recently has been to stand up for a friend against a kajillion offices and help him enroll in medical school.

  114. Jessica says:

    The bravest thing I have done so far was to start my own Independent Bookkeeping business two years ago when I was 26. I quit my job and jumped in head first with a new client that was in an industry with which I was unfamiliar. Still with them to date is my success story. ๐Ÿ™‚

  115. DanielleO says:

  117. Halifax says:

    I guess the bravest thing I’ve done was having my daughter in the middle of the MBA program I was taking. She arrived in May and I went back to school in September. Still couldn’t really know how I got through it all

  118. cutie_pie says:

    hm. i think the bravest thing i’ve ever done was sing/play guitar infront of about 200 people at camp a couple years ago. LOL

  119. angela says:

    i’m terrified of heights, so i was pretty proud of myself when i survived one of the tallest roller coasters at an amusement park a few weeks ago. granted, it took some leg pulling by my friends to get me up there, but afterwards i couldnt believe i had done it! although im really happy that i did it, it was a terrifying experience and i’m never putting myself through something like that again ๐Ÿ˜›

  120. Raelena says:

    bravest thing I have done was to move to a different state away from my family so I could be with my boyfriend

  121. Estefania says:

    the bravest thing i did was moving to the us. I’m originally from Uruguay, where we speak spanish and it’s a totally different life. Almost 8 years ago i moved with my family, neither of us spoke any english and i had to start high school 4 months after we got here… terrifying!!!

  122. honeyBrown1976 says:

    My biggest leap of faith was marrying my husband. I grew up around the dysfunctional marriage of my parents. I always wondered why my mom wanted my dad as a husband. He was not good at it. I grew bitter by the thought of marriage.

    However, that changed when I met my college sweetheart and decided to give him my heart as he’s truly earned it. I’m happy and it’s a choice I’ll never regret.

  123. Nicole says:

    the bravest thing i’ve ever done was give birth to my son! now that took a lot of courage…of course i didn’t really have a choice after i got pregnant…but still. it was brave!

  125. Zoe Lee says:

    The bravest thing I ever did was climb to the top of a nearby mountain, which was mostly rocks, and very steep. I am afraid of heights, but did it anyway..arhhhhhh

    thanks for the contest.

  126. Beckie says:

    Completing Marine Corps Bootcamp was the bravest thing I’ve ever done. I graduated from high school, and 2 days later entered a world of hurt that includes a Gas Chamber, night humps through the woods with 70 lbs packs and an M16A2 rifle in your hand, low crawling under wire hauling a fellow recruit as dead weight, sleeping in a hole with snake in it- that I had to kill myself with an e-tool (shovel) I was scared shitless- but had to “woman up” through literal blood sweat and tears- and no mommy or lipgloss to make it all beter.

  127. joooanne says:

    bravest thing was touch a big hairy spider! im so scared of them…

  128. landwhale says:

    Shave off my hair. I don’t do a lot to my hair, but when I do, I go all the way. About five years ago, I had shiny black chest length hair. It took about an hour and all i had left was a shiny bald pate and razor burn.

    Oh…and I just bleached my hair to just a step below platinum blonde with the help of a few friends.

  129. Kimberly says:

    The bravest thing I ever did was to move to a brand new city where I had no family & I knew no one.

  130. Lo says:

    i spent 6 weeks in africa!!! (kenya and ethiopia) pretty much camping ๐Ÿ™‚

  131. Jamie says:

    The bravest thing that I will be doing believe it or not will be skydiving. My boyfriend has already gone and he plans on taking me for my birthday I’m September. I’m excited yet scared at the same time.

  132. Nami says:

    I went to Colombia for a month. It was a challenging decision for me to make since I do not speak Spanish at all.

  134. CW says:

    Bravest thing Ive ever done was having voluntary surgery on my vocal chords (two seperate operations, one for each side, each about 6 months apart) while being wide awake with only local anesthesia (!!!) so they could hear my voice and to make sure I was breathing all right. Hands down the bravest- and scariest- thing Ive ever done for myself.

  142. Amanda says:

    So I have this fear of open water, too many Jaws movies I guess. I was in Puerto Rico last year and had this crazy idea to go snorkeling IN OPEN WATER. The first stop of the tour was a private island with shallow water, perfect. I could see the boat and was close to shore. Second stop, OPEN WATER!! No beach, no island. Jump off the boat and go. This was my chance, SCARY as it was I jumped off the side of the boat. My heart was racing and I looked under water and saw the most beautiful school of fish. My breathing slowed down and off I went. I look forward to my next step, scuba diving!

  143. Angie says:

    I’m deathly afraid of heights, but I stood right against the railing on the edge of a HUGE waterfall in Yosemite. The picture of it is hilarious… I look terrified! lol

  144. adelina says:

    the bravest thing I will have to soon is tell my father his credit card is maxed out $16,000. All my fault. I’m to scared to tell him, but I will soon since I won’t be able to pay it all….

    The bravest thing I have ever done was CPR. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to save her life.

  147. Karen B says:

    Bravest thing? Going to London on my own to audition for drama school. And then missing my train and managing to find a youth hostel and a train back home the next day without totally freaking out. It was scary but I figured: if I can do that on my own I must be capable of quite a lot. And I’m so going back next year to audition again ๐Ÿ™‚

  148. bembet says:

    the bravest thing i did is when i found out i was pregnant and decided to go with it.i am a single mom and a make up arist working as a brother told me to have an abortion and off course i didn’t listen to him we haven’t been on speaking terms for two years.i have a handsome one year old son now!

  149. Nicole says:

    I went white water rafting this past weekend for the first time. I ended up in a smaller boat than planned; fell overboard; saved and kept paddling with the rest of my group for another 3 hours. By far the most adventurous thing I’ve done in a long time (plus, it’s a good work out too).

  150. Ashley says:


  151. Michele says:

    ( I wrote my original poat in the wrong spot)!
    The bravest thing I ever did/do is get into a plane. I hate to fly. I get into a plane with sedation and hope for the best!

  152. alice says:

    There are a few situations in my life in which, looking back, I guess I was “brave”. But the bravest & most difficult was to learn to be myself in all situations. Very hard for me.

  153. Lindsay says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done was join the Peace Corps. After a life full of high heels and lip gloss, I decided to step way out of my comfort zone. Everyone told me I couldn’t do it, that they were sure I’d chicken out or quit as soon as I got there.

    I moved to Cameroon, West Africa in October 2005 and began the adventure of my life. I lived in a tiny village, where water and electricity were intermittant at best. I taught health topics, like how to avoid HIV and malaria. I ate foods that I never knew existed. I rode in cramped bush taxis with 30 other people. I contracted worms and diseases that were bizarre and sometimes excruciating. And guess what? I loved it. I learned more about myself, the world and the kindness of complete strangers than I ever had before. And I learned that there is no “type” for doing something good, something brave. I could move to the middle of Africa and take the lip gloss with me.

    I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

  154. Sandy says:

    The bravest thing I ever did was not to run away when my fiance was diagnosed with severe depression and borderline personality disorder with suicidal tendencies. Sadly, he died in 2003, but I am the better person for making his last years as happy as they could be given his situation.

  155. Tay says:

    This summer I’m getting my passport and planning to travel to Iceland by myself. I’ve never been out of the country (besides to Niagra) and I can’t wait!

  156. Naz says:

    The bravest thing I plan to do is start a business on my own!

  157. Rachael says:

    I have recently had to acknowledge the fact that I hated my program at a top Canadian university that I have attended for the past two years. I start a new program at a college in the fall where I will be receiving a degree in applied business for human resources and I can’t be more excited!

    The brave part for me would be telling my parents and people close to me that I did not want to continue at university. I was afraid of what they might think and kind of ashamed because I felt that my parents would be mad since they have been helping me financially. They can’t be more supportive and just want me to be happy, so I am so glad I did it! I was terrified of telling them! I’m still scared to start a new program in the fall but I know I can do it!

  158. rex says:

    the bravest thing i’ve done lately was to go to my med school interview! was so nervous, i thought i was going to throw up, but i must have done ok, bc i got in!

  159. Tracy says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done. Tell my husband of 7 years I was leaving (3 yr old son and 1yr old daughter) in tow. Be true to yourself, everyone will understand….. eventually.

  160. Vanessa H says:

    The bravest thing I have ever done so far has been to walk away from a verbally abusive relationship when I was 17. It was terrifying because I had forgotten what it was like to be happy on my own, but I’m 21 now and I am so happy that I left when I did ๐Ÿ™‚

  164. Priscilla says:

    The bravest thing i’ve ever done was deciding to be a single parent to two beautiful girls and leave an abusive relationship by the age of only 18. I had my first baby girl when I was 16 and he would tell me “no one is going to want you with a kid” among many other hurtful and degrading things so I thought I had to stay with him. I was young and stupid and he made me feel like I had to have sex with him. I ended up getting pregnant again and I hid that from my parents until I was about 6 months. While pregnant with my 2nd daughter I just woke up one day and told him I was through that if I stayed with him he would only drag me down and I wasn’t going to let him do that to me or most importantly my girls. He’s in and out of jail and off and on drugs best thing and bravest thing I’ve ever done. And WE are doing just fine!!

  165. Rachael Williams says:

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done was having a baby at age 16. It was rough and I gave up alot but it was worth it. Now she’s 20 years old and getting married on Friday!!

    The bravest thing I’ve ever done was compete in a figure (body building competition) and step on stage in a bikini in front of strangers! It was the proudest moment of my life ๐Ÿ™‚

  167. Sherry says:

    Getting married. My husband and I didn’t have very good role models from our parents. I’m proud to say we just had our two year anniversary!

  168. LB says:

    The bravest thing I ever did was to move to a town where I knew absolutely no one THE DAY I graduated from college. I lasted there 8 months…it was pretty rough.

  169. Kristi says:

    I’ve done quite a few scary things, buying a house with a tight budget and getting married were the biggest things so far. But the bravest thing I’m planning to do is have our first child. I know millions of women have children, but it’s still one of the most bravest things a woman can go through in life, not only for the pain, but also all the emotions and trials a child brings a parent. I’m looking forward to it though!

  170. Brittany says:

    The most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever done is perform in front of 5000 people. I’ve never been so afraid to sing in my life!

  171. Airess says:

    The bravest thing I plan to do is join the Army! At a time like this when the US is still at war it is very hard to get some people to join the military! Im not to worried about it to be honest… even though my parents are… Im not because I know that it is a very honorable thing to do!
