More on Courage...

I recently came across one of the most amazing quotes and I'm sure you wouldn't be surprised who said it.  It came from Oprah, on an episode of her OWN reality show following her 25th and final season of the Oprah Show.  The quote is as follows:

"The only courage you ever need is the courage to live the life of your dreams."

Now, I don't have any tattoos, because I never heard or saw anything so important to me that I was certain I wouldn't change my mind about it later - but this quote, this is tattoo-worthy.

The only courage you ever need is the courage to live the life of your dreams.  I know I've been writing a bit about courage and fear and maybe that's what happens when you dig down past all the dating and relationship issues, and get down to what matters most - your relationship with yourself and the life that you want to live.  Not just from a one-dimensional perspective, but organically, all the way around.  So, the way I see it, fear and courage are the two most important subjects that should follow and I could write about both for years and years (I'm sure I won't, but I'm just saying'...).  In my last blog post, I asked you your name for courage.  Who are you when you are the most courageous?  And as you ask yourself this question about courage, ask yourself the same about fear.  Who or what is it in you that tells you that you can't or you shouldn't when you try to answer the life that's calling you? 

Your dreams whisper to you so softly that no one else can hear them - and that's because they're only for you.  Your dreams are a "to be" that are meant to be - but only you can make it so.  Give credit and credence to your dreams - they know you better than you know yourself.

And that's why it's so important Girlfriends (and Guy friends too), to find the courage to fight past the fear - the apprehension of the unknown.  Your miscalculation of the likelihood of failure.  That's fear - you think you're gonna lose, so you don't even play the game.  Well, Girlfriends, we all know that if you don't play the game, you lose anyway.  So, what's there really to be afraid of? 

Name your fear - because it is not a part of who you are.  And then, move past it with the courage to answer the life that's calling you.

Much love,
