The Gift of Courage

I started this website 1 1/2 years ago with the intention to follow through. However, fears and hesitations interfered and here I am today writing my very first post.

It takes courage to begin any journey, whether it is a meaningful life or a new project. Sometimes we are blessed with  encouragement from friends and family as well as reminders from heaven that we are not alone. I love symbols and signs, like finding coins and feathers, seeing butterflies, and discovering words, quotes, and books that seem meant especially for me at that very moment. Yet, when it comes down to it, the decision to begin is mine alone and I can only do it with courage.

I am a Leo. I am supposed to be a roaring lioness with all the courage I need for any journey. I’m not sure yet how I feel about the accuracy of astrology, but I reasoned early in life that I must have been born under the wrong sign. I’m more like a pet cat than a lion!

However, my 55th birthday is coming up on August 4th and I have decided to embrace my inner lioness. It’s time to let go of fears and actually do those things I have dreamed of doing my whole life. One of them is writing. I may eventually share my other dreams as we continue on this journey together.

What have you dreamed of doing that you have never given yourself permission to begin? Now is the time! We can do this together!

  1. Hi Kim

    Happy Belated Birthday! Our recent history has similarities! I finally published for the first time on my blog about the 21 July 2017 after not posting at all for the previous 18 months that I’d had the website. Courage was one of qualities I actively sought as I got closer and closer to publishing.
    Now I’m following my dream – posting my third blog post yesterday. It’s slow, but I’m enjoying most of the process 🙂

    1. Thank you for the birthday wish and for reading my blog. Thank you for sharing your similar experience as well. I checked out your blog and I really like how you set it up. I see we think and write about issues that are important to both of us. By the way, I had CFS for many years until I was diagnosed in the last couple years with fibromyalgia. I have arthritis in my hands, but it’s most bothersome in the mornings. I’m so glad you have found ways to improve your health.:)
