Courage is defined as the ability to do something that frightens one.
I have lots of fear and I’m often afraid, but courage, that little sneaky beast is always there lurking. Dropping it’s trail of Cheerios for me to follow, leading me to the other side.
Fear can be immobilizing. The whole fight, flee or freeze. It’s in all the text books. It’s the thing. I personally tend to freeze. I do the deer in the headlights.
This time will be different. I will tell myself that I am courageous and I will prevail. That nothing can hold me back.
I will proudly proclaim that fear can go f#%^ itself.
