Life is full of choices. Some are small, others large. And the big ones inevitably present us with trials that embody one fear or another. Based on my experiences, I believe that facing our fears and moving through them does in fact help us to build a “courage arsenal”.
“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” ~ John A. Shedd
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” ~ C. JoyBell C.
“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” ~ Maya Angelou
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” ~ Anais Nin
