I have done a lot of thinking about COURAGE. To me, courage looks like a lion - fierce and strong. Or like a superhero - having special powers and wearing a red cape. Courage, to me, often feels one of the last term that anyone would use to describe me.
But, recently someone called me COURAGEOUS. And, I wondered what if COURAGE is something that even, me, a mere mortal could claim.
So I googled "COURAGE" and found these quotes that inspired me...
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says
I'll try again tomorrow.
~Mary Anne Radmacher
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
Optimism is the foundation of courage.
~Nicholas Murray Butler
So...maybe my definition of COURAGE is too inflexible... too unachieveable... too exacting.
And perhaps, I am courageous...in my own, non-super hero way!
Do you own your COURAGE?
