ordinary courage

 I am feeling inspired by the word courage so I did this layout in my art journal.
When I think of all the times I reach out of my comfort zone what I am actually doing is being courageous. And with each courageous action it makes it easier the next time.

I've just started reading  Brene' Brown's book titled The Gifts of Imperfection, right in the beginning she talks about courage.  I discovered that I had highlighted many things she had to say.  This is a statement she makes on page 13.  I was forced to stop and ponder what that meant, it really struck a cord.  Of all the (perceived)  hurdles I thought  I had,  I was looking at them as being something that I am afraid of.  I've made a conscious decision to change my perception.  Instead of thinking about the fear I am going to revel in being courageous.  

So I ask you...what can you be courageous about today?  Even small, I'd really like to hear.


  1. Yes, very true, the things we do on a daily basis add up and we need to recognize and honor this!

    My courageous act--I taught three classes of first graders yesterday. I have little experience with the young'uns... I was nervous but it sure was fun!
