A Look at Courage

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary the definition of courage is: ability to conquer fear or despair: Bravery, Valor.



Courage - the ability to let go of fear!
Have the courage to let go of fear!


But what does courage mean to you? What does it make you think of?

Do you think of someone running into a burning building to save another person's life? Do you think of someone winching themselves down a cable to pluck people off roof tops and out of rushing rivers?

Do you look at courage in this way?

These instances are ones we associate as great acts of courage. And correctly so. But there is so much more to courage. Let's take a look.



Courage - the ability to let go of fear!
There is no bridge that can't be crossed!


Does it not take courage to get out of bed each morning when your love no longer lies beside you? Yes, it does. It takes great amounts of courage to keep going.

Does it not take courage to have to go to school every day where someone has been bullying you? It most certainly does.

And does it not take courage to move on past a situation when you know you need to make some kind of change in your life? Again, yes it does.



Courage - the ability to let go of fear!
You are the only one who can paddle your kayak!


Be it leaving a bad relationship, quitting a job you can't stand to show up for, or applying for a loan to better your life, all are acts of courage. Deciding to go on a long term trip, looking inside of yourself to see what you are made of. All are acts of courage.

We don't need to rush into burning buildings to be heroes. We do need to be aware of how much courage each one of us has and how we use our courage on a daily basis. We are regular people leading everyday lives and sometimes that takes more courage than we realise. We all perform great acts of courage within our own lives. We just need to give ourselves credit for it. Be inspired by The Six Attributes of Courage.

The mum or dad who chooses to live as a single parent rather than bring their children up in an abusive relationship is courageous. The alcoholic who steps into an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting for the first time is courageous. Undergoing surgery to find out if there is a brain tumour is also courageous.

Standing up for and believing in yourself is courageous.



Courage - the ability to let go of fear!
Open yourself to the possibilities!


Courage tends to show up when we are in situations that make us fearful. Fear will sit in the pit of our stomachs, make us jittery or want to turn away from what we need to do. Yet courage will be there to nudge us to go the distance.

You all have courage inside of you, sometimes you just need to give yourself the credit you deserve for having the courage to get through the things that sometimes seem insurmountable. It is in you!



Have the courage to let yourself fly!
Let go of fear, let yourself fly!


We are not all meant to rush into burning buildings. We can however, have the courage to fly and let go of our fears, not letting them get in the way of life. Take a look at the courage inside of yourself and be your own hero.
