“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”-Ambrose Redmoon
Good morning! We often admire others we see as “courageous.” We admire their drive, their spirit, and their commitment. It is easy to wish we could live without fear and with such devotion.
I love this quote because I think it speaks an important about truth about courage. People are not courageous because they do not feel fear: people are courageous because they have found something that is more important than their fear. They have found something that awakens their heart, mind, and spirit. This “something” changes their perspective. The “something” becomes large, so their fear becomes small.
When we don’t have an important “something” in our lives-one that awakens mind, body and soul-fear will be overwhelming.
Your Turn: What drives you? What awakens your heart, mind, and soul so that your destination becomes more important than your fear?
Today’s Affirmation: I am courageous.
