Courage is…

Courage is…

Stepping into the empty space that nobody else is wiling to fill.
And filling it.
With Ideas and Ideals.
Tears.
Hopes.
Fears.
Screams.
Hugs.
Dreams.

Everything that scares us.

Because they raise the risk that we might not be….
Accepted.
Agreed with.
Approved of.
Supported.
Liked.
Wanted.
Loved

They raise the risk that we might find ourselves alone.  And alone is, I think, what scares us the most.

Courage is looking Alone in the face.  And smiling.  Because alone isn’t so scary after all.  It’s just me.  It’s just us.  It’s where peace resides.
