“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

What’s this all about?
(And can someone please explain the obsession with balls?)
First, thanks for stopping by.
I’m Kimberly and I’m really glad you’re here.
A Brave Life (ABL) is home for people who want to grow their balls.
It’s a place where you and I can speak honestly about what scares the hell out of us. It’s a place where we can admit, without shame, that we don’t have all the answers. And lastly, ABL is a place where we can search for these answers. Together.
On Mondays and Thursdays I post articles about what brave living looks like – at home, at work, and beyond. All my writing is tied together by the 3 B’s:
- Balance: Making sure that your weekly schedule reflects your deepest values.
- Beauty: Growing in wisdom, improving the “problem areas” of your personality that only your best friends get to tease you about, contributing something meaningful to the world, and handling life’s curve balls with grace. (Hey Mom, look – I just used the word “balls” without referring to genitalia! Aren’t you proud?)
- Balls: (Sorry, Mom — we’re already back to genitalia again.) This website is not about eliminating fear. It’s about making choices that are right for you and for the world despite your fear.
The last thing I’ll say about ABL is that it is probably the riskiest and scariest endeavor I’ve ever pursued. Especially since I have $90,000 in student loan debt to pay off and thus would fare much better as a surgeon specializing in testicles as opposed to a writer and counselor specializing in balls.
But I just can’t shake the feeling that I’m meant to do this work. A Brave Life‘s mission is one that I believe in. And I hope that over time, you will, too.
