Fear & Courage 12 November 2014

DSCN1435Fear is phone calls in the middle of the night. Courage is answering.Fear is wondering what those odd noises are. Courage is going to find out.

Fear is thinking about what it takes to move. Courage is puttingDSCN1281 your house on the market anyway. Fear is not knowing where you will live. Courage is stepping forward into possibility. Fear is change. Courage is making small steps in new directions.

Fear is thinking you aren’t good enough. Courage is trusting that you are. Fear is all alone. Courage is seeing that you’re strong enough to face it.

Fear is losing those you love. Courage is loving them anyway.

I sometimes get lost in thought about my life and where I’m going.DSCN1383 I’ve always known I’m not: city, suburbia, crowds; I’m: country, quiet, community. I love long runs on dirt roads, star-filled evenings, sunset walks, campfires and s’mores, guitars & singing, space that doesn’t always need to filled with voices, together, a shared life with faithful and strong forever love, and the beauty of the land.
