Courage. Are you born with it? Is it something you acquire? Do you automatically know if you have it or not? Do others see it in you before you see it in yourself? The definition from the Merriam Webster Dictionary is as follows COURAGE: mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. Wow, I know! And to think its in each of us. Well, I think it is. It may be more evident in some than others, but I truly believe its in you & I. Its  like that love that you recently discovered you have for art or writing. It has always been in you

This post touches my heart in a special way. Its dedicated to the men and women who put their life on the line each day, in danger, to protect and fight for freedom. Both the military & law enforcement. If I really think about it, there are things that I do that would not be possible or safe if it wasn't for people that found the courage and saw a need to serve. Now, this isn't a post encouraging anyone to sign up at the local recruiter, but I would like for someone who may be in the military service, past or present, to feel appreciated. And not just today because its Veterans Day or on Memorial Day here in the States, but everyday. Its the least we could do. If you have served, THANK YOU.

Are there times you feel the need  to stand up for what is right even though it seems like the whole world isn't? Courage does not mean your are not scared, it simply means you do it anyway! What have you been holding off from doing because it scares you? Has fear of rejection stopped you from applying to that dream job or school? Making your hobby into a business? Generally the things we fear most are the ones we receive the most satisfaction from!

May you find that courage in You to follow your dreams. Again, a big thank you to our military, law enforcement and their families. God bless


  1. Happy Veterans Day to all who have served.

    Courage that a lot!

  2. Correction * Courage takes a lot!
