"Courage is knowing what not to fear."
~ Plato ~
In so many ways, living takes courage. Just to get up in the morning and keep on, in spite of everything overwhelming and unknown in our world requires a certain fortitude, a certain willingness, and a certain faith.
And what is courage really, but faith? Faith that we will be carried through difficulty, comforted when no comfort seems possible, and survive in spite of daunting odds. Let's step into the future with courage. Let's step up and claim our divine right to grow the seeds that have been planted in us. With courage, let's rise, and shine. Let's be brave and bold and go forward, and have faith.
I embrace courage and take the next step.
