“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure…than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
I will always come back to good Ol’Teddy! Let his rise up and say that we have put our chips down on the table and risked greatly. Let us rise up and say that we have experience the joys and sorrows of our lives with fullness and passion.
My life has been such a wide array of experiences. And the ones that I remember the best are the moments that I had the courage to risk myself and go for the gusto! The moments that have scared me and tested me at my core. Whether the outcome was sad or happy, I learned something amazing in that moment of pure bliss…….those moments are actually when I have lived. The moments I have been present to every, small, tiny, detail and left nothing unnoticed.
Experiencing my own courage reminds me to be more courageous. If you have been timid recently, if you have forgotten the experience of you, then I ask you try a little bit of courage today. The courage to express your love, the courage to stand up for your life, the courage to say no and the courage to say yes.
As far as most of us know, we only get this one life and should be filled with as much happiness as we can stand! And I believe that happiness stems from the courage to go after the things you want!
Go out and be courageous my lovely and peaceful friends!
