Courage is most often defined as: the ability to do something that frightens one. Or, strength in the face of pain or grief.
These are very good, classical explanations. For some reason, when people think of courage it is is often involving fire-fighters or war veterans or people who disarm a would-be robber. Now, those can work fine and dandy. But on a daily, personal level, I don’t think that those are the definitions that we should be applying to ourselves. I think that courage is merely an honest assessment of our lives, and the ways that we address them.
We are on a path of life-long improvement. I think that it would behoove us to remove all grandeur from the definition and focus on ourselves in the micro sense of the word. We are all powerful and amazing beyond belief. Let’s look at ourselves, our truths, and address them honestly.
