RESILIENT • OPTIMISTIC • EMPOWERING

SARAH HUMES

Top Takeaways From This Episode:

  • Being brave looks different for everyone
  • Let the people who love you help you when you need it
  • Humans are complex, and everyone’s struggle is their own
  • Conquering your fear can be exhilarating

Show Notes:

Sarah Rose Humes learned to be resourceful from a very young age. Her childhood, while full of love, was extremely difficult. Sarah grew up in extreme poverty.  In fact, one night while getting ready to go to sleep she discovered a rat in her bed! Unfortunately, this experience lead Sarah to a lifetime fear of animals.

In this episode, Sarah shares how she learned to grow into bravery despite deep fears and anxiety.  A few years ago, Sarah decided being limited by her fears was no longer acceptable. Fortunately, Sarah brought from her childhood a resilience rarely seen in anyone, especially a child. As a result, she learned to adapt easily and create an environment she was much happier to live in. By adopting the motto “Fear ain’t the boss of me,” Sarah made it clear that she was no longer willing to accept the unacceptable.

Sarah Humes, The Brave Files Podcast, Living Intentionally on Purpose

This week, Heather talks to Sarah about her loving, but challenging, childhood and the fears she worked hard to overcome. She shares beautiful details of the life she worked so hard to build for herself.

Sarah is the published author of the novel “Transformed.” She wrote the book during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) which we love and are considering taking on ourselves this year!

Sarah brings complete vulnerability and authenticity to The Brave Files and she reminds us that being brave can be about the little things — like going to the dentist, calling Walmart or, in her case, touching a chinchilla.
