Last week we talked about B is for believing, and thank you for those who sent me lovely personal messages. I do love to hear from you guys 🙂 This week I thought C for courage was the best word to carry on from belief.

It can take courage to believe in yourself, to truly except yourself for who you are …

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson:

My belief in life is, ‘what is the alternative if I don’t have the courage …’ If you have a desire or dream taking those steps forward can be difficult, more so if your life is ‘comfortable’. But just because a life is comfortable, does it mean you are happy? Does it mean those deep burning desires do not affect your thoughts. Do you ever say, ‘if only …’ ‘I wish …’. Now, I’m not telling you to give up your 9-5 job that pays the bills, or leave your family on a year’s sabatical to go and ‘find yourself’, but I am telling you to think about the structure of your life. Those hours you waste thinking about your dreams and desires, could you be doing them? What can you do to fit them into your life? Can you adjust your routine? Can you get up that extra hour earlier or stay up an extra hour later to help you achieve your desires.

It is easier said than done, especially if you have 101 dreams, desires and goals, and sometimes it’s easier to just live our lives and believe that our dreams won’t ever be fulfilled. Do you know how many people out there are like that? Are you one of them?

It’s having the courage to say: ‘No … I want change, I want to make a difference in my life, I don’t want to get to the end of my life with regrets!’

Only YOU can have the courage to believe in yourself, believe in your dreams and know that YOU are capable of anything you put your mind to. Knock away that fear … have the courage to be who you deserve to be! Live the life you deserve!

Here’s a few courage quotes … take ten minutes out of your day to have a think about these … then start putting that plan in place, have the courage to conquer those fears.
