I know I’m cutting this post pretty fine. 7 minutes past midnight…
Thoughtful Moment: Courage can take many forms…while cowardice takes but one.
A friend of mine posted something on Facebook the other night, and I’ve been thinking about the permutations of her statement since then, and came up with the thoughtful moment for today.
There have been a lot of times this last week that have driven home the statement above.
Courage can be small, like trying something you haven’t had to eat before.
A turkey wrap with a spinach spread for me… I’m not a big fan of spinach, but decided to give it a whirl. I’m still not a fan of spinach.
Courage can be something “mid-sized” like admitting to being wrong, and apologizing for it. Not myself this week, but someone close, who had to apologize to someone else.
And of course, Courage can be something large, like doing something that you’re truly afraid of, like telling someone your feelings. Or running in to a burning building to save lives.
Cowardice, on the other hand… takes only one form.
Running away from that which you know you should do, and letting fear rule your choices.
Be brave. You’ll like yourself better in the morning.
