What is courage?
What is courage to you?
Courage is the feeling of throwing caution to the wind when your rational mind screams no. Courage is the fire in your belly when people tell you you can't and you won't. Courage is the beacon of bright flame when you're surrounded by the darkness of fear. Courage is inside of you just waiting for the moment when you lose your hesitation to step into the fire.
Courage is the horse galloping you towards your wildest dreams with fierce determination and the inability to slow down, let alone stop in its tracks. Courage is the beating heart that beats to it's own rhythm each and every day. Courage is the ability to know your true self and honour that truth right now, in the present. Courage builds every step of the way as you walk your own path of wild, mad, life.
Courage is the light I see in children's eyes when they talk about making the impossible possible. Courage is knowing when to ask for the help you need to stoke that fire and make dreams come true. Courage is the strength in your legs when you take a stand against the wrongs in the world and speak proudly about the rights. Courage is each deep breath that fills your lungs with an unconscious, but living energy.
Courage is you.
"Your Determination is Limitless"
