Happy "Courageous Follower" Day!

“You cannot be a leader, and ask other people to follow you, unless you know how to follow, too.”  - Sam Rayburn

Today is Courageous Follower Day! 

Being a follower is not necessarily a negative thing:  Following your heart;  Following your dreams;  (Following Self Care Girl on facebook and blogger... and twitter...tee,hee!)....these can all be positive ways to get you to the right place in your life.  

Today is a good day to be mindful of the path you are on.  Are you following your heart?  Do you dream of a different place to live? a different career? a more adventurous life?  Following your passions takes courage.  It may require you to step outside of your comfort zone, or adopt a new way of thinking.  

I encourage you to explore your life plan today- honor your responsibilities, but allow yourself the luxury of imagining your possibilities.  Find others you admire who have achieved what you are dreaming of and dare to follow their example.

Take Good Care!
