“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” ~ Anais Nin.
I got out of bed this Friday morning with a blogger’s block – loss of ideas on what I should be posting. The sun is not up yet. Or, could some dark clouds overshadowed it? I have been going through the valued comments made by my visitors for almost an hour. Hoping some ideas may help unblock my blogger’s block ………………… We like taking up difficult challenges, don’t we? Like the heroes we admire and not cowards who are so versatile when it comes to flip flop, cave in or compromise on their values.
All of us have our share of setbacks, trouble and pain. Indeed, such are the stuff of life. And, along the process, many of us choose to give up or quit. Some even end up getting towed. And some choose to stand tall and courageously face whatever life throws at them ……………. Courage is an amazing thing. It help us deal with whatever life throws at us – the good, the bad and the ugly.
Have you ever reach beyond to care or share and help some others do and dare?
Have you ever reach beyond to test your limit or do you tell yourself, “I am timid?”
We learn from what we see ………. Anger invite anger and love invite love. As such, we need courage to face the places in our lives where we have been emotionally and psychologically broken. Or, …………..
Are we getting anywhere if we keep pretending that all is well when it is not?
Are we supposed to trick our minds we are living in Wonderland especially when we are camping outside the gates of hell and not the gates of heaven?
Sometimes we allow the toxic emotions inside us to build up gradually. Instead, the way forward is to address and start taking responsibility for our own action and attitude because some areas in our lives are beyond a quick fix or if any one solution fits all, will ever work. The quality of our life and happiness is determined by our attitude and the choices we make – both courageous and ethical.
Do not run through life avoiding your emotional pain. It will keep haunting you. Courage is simply doing what is right in spite of being afraid. It is this amazing and healthy link that will help us to live well. Once again, the sun have finally emerged from the dark clouds and my blogger’s block seem to have disappeared as well. It takes courage to admit and not play the blame game especially when things are not right with you. But, do you really have what it takes, I mean the courage to effectively curb and face the daily noise of your life?
Meanwhile, have another beautiful and happy weekend !!!
