Courage is something that so many people want to have in life. It represents character and earns respect, it is symbolic of bravery and self-sacrifice. However, it’s not just about physical bravery. There are other types that range from physical strength, endurance, mental stamina, and innovation. Courage has brought people to follow their dreams, but having the courage to do something, no matter what, can be challenging. It can mean doing something even when afraid, and yet still moving towards your goal. It’s the triumph to succeed when you’re scared. Its action over reaction, and it can lead us to following our hearts.
It takes courage to finding self-discovery, rather than to challenge ourselves. It means following our desires to become who we really want to be. We all know what we want out of life, but going with your heart requires us to not take second best. Instead, we persevere in the face of adversity. It isn’t uncommon to be afraid, but it also means that aren’t occupying ourselves with endeavoring to prove that there isn’t a danger. Rather, we strengthen ourselves to go on in spite of the danger. I don’t think that there is any one person that’s braver than the next person. It’s about being bold and taking the courage to roar. To try again tomorrow and standing up for what we feel is right. Although it also means being open to expanding your horizons, and letting go of what is familiar.
It was once said that man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. The world demands that we live with qualities of youth, where it’s not about a time in our life, but a state of mind. Life has the ability to grow the more courage that we have, and it can require shedding tears to get where we want to go. There is no need to be ashamed of tears because our tears show that we have the greatest courage. We make the best of our circumstances and continue to live full of faith.
Think about a time when you were strong, and what was meant to be for you. Think about a situation when you felt afraid, yet you chose to face your fear. There was something about that time or something that you said to yourself that brought you to help yourself in facing that fear. Remember what you observed, what you thought, and how you felt during that time. You are inspiring, beautiful, courageous, and amazing. I always think that when fear feels too much, it’s time to remind ourselves that we have the skills to become stronger and face life with courage.
