Hey, loved ones, let's talk some beautiful truth. Courage isn't something you feel. It is something you do. Being courageous isn't feeling a warm fuzzy or all strong and together. It isn't even the absolute certainty you are doing it right.
Being courageous is moving toward answers when the questions are hard.
Being courageous is shaking in your boots but step in front of the giant you have to take down anyway.
It is choosing to do someting when you wonder if anything will help.
Being courageous is believing it can get better and acting on that belief.
None of us ever feel courageous. The most courageous people feel scared and even terrified. They feel like they can't breathe or that they are doing to vomit or that they just might be crazy for doing this "acting not scared" thing. It isn't that courageous people feel none of those things.
We just feel the determination not to let fear dictate our actions or lives most.
YOU are courageous.
Beautiful courageous ones, God be with you in your fight. May He give you strength, comfort, and wisdom.
Stay on the journey!
