  1. To strip

    I dare you to show off your insides and to strip yourself free from facades and walls. I dare you to strip away your layers of skin and show people what you're really made of. Yes, it's scary, yes you will feel vulnerable, but that is exactly what bravery feels like. "The moment that you feel that, just possibly, you're walking down the street naked, exposing too much of your heart and your mind and what exists on the inside, showing too much of yourself. That's the moment you may be starting to get it right." (Gaiman, 2013)

  2. To leave

    I dare you to leave your comfort. To leave the place that has tucked you in too warmly. Remember to never let yourself get stranded, remember that this planet is beautiful. So get up, go out, and go anywhere else. The universe begs to be explored.

  3. To stay interested

    This is the key to never having to be dreadfully bored. Ask questions and stay curious. There are many things to learn in this world. You're young. Let yourself be young by never losing the sparkle in your eyes.

  4. To love

    In a world where bad things happen, in a place where we experience hurt, I dare you to love. Remember that a brave heart knows how to love honestly and unconditionally, a brave heart knows how to rid herself of pride and hate and bitterness. It will feel silly at times, other times it will just be tough, but know that love is always, always beautiful.
