Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to confront fear and bravely continue onward. Courage is an essential quality that helps us face life’s challenges with strength and determination. Having courage means being willing to stand up for what you believe in, even when it’s scary or difficult. Having courage means stepping outside of your comfort zone, facing your fears, and doing what you know is right. If you find yourself feeling afraid or unable to face a particular challenge in your life, it may be time to explore new ways to find courage again. These strategies will help you find the courage you need when facing challenging circumstances.
Think of others who are dealing with much more serious problems than you are. Take a deep breath, come up with a plan, and prepare for both the best and the worst outcomes. Remember that what you are experiencing is relative in nature.
I’m sure you have heard by now that keeping a journal of gratitude is the way to go! Not until I began this journey myself did I realize how true it is. It has become the thermometer for my life. Days and weeks without a journal entry typically mean I’ve fallen into a simmering well of chaos.
Carving out your moments to write every day brings serenity and peace. It’s my quiet time with God. It’s when I begin to reflect and realize I’m not in a bad place after all. People have it worse!
I strongly believe everyone needs a sacred space that exists to hold us up.
