Writing Wednesday: Cloud Inspired Lesson #4
 
This is one of the VERY FIRST lessons chasing clouds taught me. I am eternally grateful that the lesson came so early in the journey...for fear is a often and ever present companion. 

Be Courageous

Some days I look into the mirror.

Scared.

Wishing that fear would just go away.

Then I go outside and look up

And the ever changing clouds seem to say,

"Dear child, fear is inevitable.

Don't aim to be fearless.

Feel the fear.

Recognize it for what it can be.

Then choose to be courageous anyway."

In the words of Mary Anne Radmacher, "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes, courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day, saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
