Even though she was afraid almost every day of her life, she kept her head up and her feet moving forward. That was courage. – Queenisms™
It is sad but true that things happen in the world that can leave us afraid, hurt, sad, and in some cases, truly brought to our knees. Every person has a different timetable for reaching out, getting up and moving forward. And, every journey, no matter what it looks like to others, is a portrait in courage. When we wake up filled with fear, but get out of bed, that’s courage. When we do the hard thing even though we’re afraid, that’s courage. When we reach out to love again, even when we’ve been hurt, that’s courage. So today, let’s hug ourselves, notice someone else who’s displaying courage and celebrate the lives that look “normal” to the outside world but are truly courageous.
