Encouragement 1-24-13 (courage)"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow."
----Mary Anne Radmacher
Good morning everyone ..hoping ur morning is going well...wanted to talk to u guys today about courage...I haven't been feeling that courageous lately...however,,,I know better...I know that me having courage really isn't about me staying or leaving ...it is about having the courage to make a decision that is best for me....one, that no matter what others think...I CAN LIVE WITH....Courage is me being able to tell the truth to myself first, and then look him in the eyes and tell him my truth....There are so many variables in my life right now ...most of the time, I am not sure if I'm coming or going ...NO PEACE....who wants to live that way? I don't....One quote I came across is ringing really true to me at this time...."It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power."----Alan Cohen...I know that I have fears of letting go of what is familiar to me ...him....us....being a single mom....being alone ...so many things ..but those mostly...however,,,,I believe that once I finally close this chapter of my life....it will open up the door to the next chapter...new love...new beginnings...new things...new people...new experiences.....I am ready for it...but scared at the same time....have to find the courage to keep pushing toward my own personal happiness...
So I want to encourage you today regardless of where u are..what u are contemplating or not...staying or leaving ...sometimes courage doesn't say very much...it is a quiet contemplation...and then there are times when it does roar like a mighty lion....whichever you feel like at this moment...just know that you are COURAGEOUS....you are important...you are worthy....you are strong....you deserve love and to be loved...you deserve happiness....and that is my wish for all of u and myself....."HAPPINESS---is when what you think...what you say, and what you do are in harmony"...(Ghandi)
Til the next time ...stay POSITIVE and ENCOURAGED.....and keep pushing and moving forward....XOXO
