Dare to be Courageous
I understand the struggles that come from making lifestyle changes, building a personal practice and a new life! Let me share my first-hand experiences and practices to guide you through your journey to a more fulfilling life. Courage is a lifelong endeavor, and the more often you practice, the stronger you will become.
So what truly defines courage?
Is it rescuing a child from drowning? Is it speaking in front of a large group of people? Is it starting a new life after a great loss? Perhaps courage is getting out of bed in the mornings and being brave enough to face another day or standing up for what you believe in. Sometimes it is surrendering to the universe or God when your want to maintain a firm control or being vulnerable with another person. The larger question is: is courage being out of your comfort zone?
Courage is defined as a mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. Courage is the strength in the face of suffering, sadness, pain or grief. So what does courage mean to you?
Grand Acts of Courage are where people have been bold in the face of adversity and have challenged the status quo throughout history. These have been accomplished by people like Anne Frank, Mother Teresa, Dr. Martin Luther King--brave men and women who have fought through desperation for a cause greater than themselves. For some people, these are events in their own lives which have subtle impacts but substantial personal growth. It could be leaving jobs they hate, standing up for themselves, or leaving abusive relationships. Mustering the courage to leave these toxic situations requires a great deal of discipline. However, finding the courage to be strong can lead to amazing new opportunities and a healthier state of mind.
Types of Courage: Physical, social, moral, emotional, and spiritual
