Well I took a wonderful class yesterday.....Learned so much, most important was how I felt going there. Excited full of anticipation, not afraid, or fearful...now that is a huge change.
So much that I learned and will write about as I sort through it all...The thing that sticks out most in my mind is this
The difference between Bravery and Courage
Bravery is having no fear and completing and action
Courage is having fear and doing it anyway
Now pause for a moment...I did...I always thought I was a brave person, taking on new challenges and facing things head on, now I see I am a courageous person. I have tons of fear, fear of failure, fear of you will find out who I really am and not like me, fear of "screwing" up , but my fear NO LONGER holds me back...that is courage. I made a commitment to myself to not look back on my life and say "I wish I had" I want to loo back on my life and say "I did it"
How does this effect you? Does fear hold you back, do you want to be a courageous person? You can , the answers are all within you...It is important to stop and listen to them, sometimes they will be a LOUD shout, other times it will be a small whisper, but they are there, all inside you...
It is time to live in the here and now...to live a "mindful" life to embrace all your life has to offer
"Tell me ...what will you do with your one precious life?"
