26 Days of Facing the Chicken Exit: DAYS 25 - 26

Today is the final day of facing down the chicken exit! BRAVER THAN BRAVE comes out tomorrow. I have been waiting for this for so long and I can' believe it's almost here!  But in the meantime, I present Days 25-26 of 26 Days of Facing the Chicken Exit! I hope you enjoy!

DAY 25: ??? 

I left today open for all of you to share your own stories of facing down the chicken exit. I hope you've been inspired after reading so many great stories. I hope you've been thinking about the moments in your life when you've faced down your chicken exit . . . whether that means taking the exit, or doing THE THING. I hope you know that there are SO MANY WAYS TO BE BRAVE. You are Brave! And I hope you'll comment and share your own story. I would truly love to hear!

DAY 26: Back to Wanda

After reading so many stories of facing down the chicken exit, I bet you CAN'T WAIT to hear how Wanda faced hers. Of course I can't tell you how the book ends! That would violate all of my reading principles. But know that Wanda is BRAVE. In fact, she's BRAVER THAN BRAVE. If you want to know more, you can buy your own copy or request one at your local library (if they don't already have it). Thanks so much for coming along this journey of facing down your chicken exit! I hope you have recognized all the ways you are Brave in your own life!

Wanda, a cartoon girl with dark skin and brown hair in a yellow and pink sweater, stands in a real life doorway with a rollercoaster in the background. Above the doorway is a sign that says "Chicken Exit."

I hope you enjoyed Days 25-26, and I hope you've enjoyed the whole series. I really wanted to highlight the idea that being brave looks different for everyone. Sometimes we are Brave by doing THE HARD THING, and sometimes walking away from it takes all the Brave. A huge thank you to everyone who shared their story. That took courage, too! I love you all!

And dearest readers, I would really love to hear your story of facing down your own chicken exit in the comments!
