It’s one of those words, isn’t it. It can mean a lot of different things at different times to different people. Everybody wants to be thought of as courageous. It’s a characteristic that makes us worthy of respect. It’s a quality that we also respond to positively when we see it in others.
Courage is not just physical bravery. It can also be speaking up against injustice or taking a financial leap to follow your dream.
So whatever courage means to you: feeling the fear yet acting anyway, persevering in the face of adversity, standing up for what you feel is right or trusting that all will be well in the end, take it with you as you face the opportunities and challenges that the New Year brings.
That is what I intend to do, which is why it’s my guide word for 2023.
