What courage is

February 26, 2019

Courage is not the absence of fear, nor is strength the absence of weakness. Courage and strength are showing up every time, ready or not, and just taking on the challenge.

I was thinking about this on my way to work this morning: how often I was fearful of challenges ahead and yet still showed up and took them on. Then I had a revelation: This must be what courage is.

Something in my head told me to check if anyone had had the same thoughts. I googled "courage is not the absence of fear." Turns out I was not making an original discovery. Many others had thought of it before me. But this fact did not alter the value of my find. It is only when you internalize things that they become real. I may have had fear, but I've had courage too, a lot of it. And that... made my day.
