Characteristics of Courage
According to Google, courage is defined as:
- the ability to do something that frightens one.
- strength in the face of pain or grief.
The real question is how do you see courage as it applies to your own life? Is it:
- Being afraid of something, yet choosing to act anyway?
- Taking a stand when you know a cause is just?
- Taking a risk and following the desires of your own heart?
- Remaining steadfast in the face of adversity?
- Listening to the guiding voice inside of you?
- Facing difficulties in your life such as health problems and/or pain, with dignity, faith and strength?
When I wrote this, I was at the Doctor's office waiting to be seen. In my case it was just a routine appointment. However, as I sat there I wondered about the people in the surrounding rooms. Did they need courage to come out for their appointment today. Were some afraid of what they might hear? Were some already facing a battle? It truly made me think about all the ways that we face courage in our lives. Especially those who are facing illness.
While we may each approach courage in a different way, may each of us always have the courage to face all the challenges that may come our way.
