Courage: the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.
I find myself being easily spooked, self doubting, or hesitant in the midst of seeing uncertainty. I have always found it to be easier if I just sit back and allow life to pan out in front of me, but the truth is that I am missing out of many opportunities and lessons in life. It is easy to become complacent, allowing life to do as it pleases, but without us taking the proactive steps, we can not fully achieve our life's goals.
Often in times of fear or adversity is when we truly unlock our ability to be brave and face the task head on. When we overcome our challenges we not only get the courage we didn't realize we had, but we also prove to ourselves that we are capable of more than we could ever imagine. Sometimes the things we fear facing may seem minuscule, but always remember that even a small feat is still a feat.
There are times I wonder what am I actually capable of, or I wonder if I can actually do what I think I can. The truth of the matter is that you will never know unless you try. Even then, you have proved to yourself that you have mustered up the courage to at least attempt. If there is one thing that I will stand by its that you are always more capable of things than you really think. There have time where I doubted myself and my abilities, whether that be emotional, physically, or mentally, but the second I change my mindset into positivity then I start pushing myself.
Sometimes the hardest part of a situation is not the actual task, but actually telling yourself that you can do it in the first place. The courage is before facing the problem even comes, but once you hit the moment it comes then you see what exactly you can endure. I have learned over the years that God will never give you anything you can't handle, and so far in my life that has proven to be true. To think that the one true king is batting for me in my corner, that is the most encouragement I could ever ask for.
Never forget that you have a strength inside fo you that no one can touch, because it is your power. The next time you face a challenge, face it fearlessly and remember you can do anything you put your mind to. Believe in yourself and take life with stride. Take this as a daily mission to live courageously.
