AYD - May 28, 2013 - Your Courage, Your Voice

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, 'I'll try again tomorrow.'"
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Courage does not mean what we see in the movies that tends to be the template we try to fit ourselves into.  It is not some moment of intense action backing us into a corner, followed by our face getting all twisted as the adreneline takes over and we make some Bellowing yell as we jump up and run into gunfire.

It can be simple.
It can be accepting a moment for what it is, and recognizing that the task is not lost. 
Accepting that we did not fail, but that we have to practice, or try some more to achieve our next forward step.

It is not giving up.  Even, on simple things.  These moments help us create more moments, with each and every achievement.

Skipping a rope.
Catching a ball.
Tying a shoe.
Changing a tire.
Asking her on a date.
Passing that course.
Applying for that job.
Asking her on another date.
Asking her to marry me.
Buying a home.
Cutting the grass.
Building a deck.
Writing a book.
Saying sorry to a friend.
Speaking your mind.
Finding confidence for anything...and everything.
Changing a diaper.
Facing a memory.
Being a dad.
Raising my son.
Being the best husband because that is what she deserves.

There will be moments when you feel like you have mastered them all.  After finding the courage to step forward you will feel more at ease... and then, just like that, one of those may still test your courage.
This is okay.  You will be okay.  Because you have the trust in you,

To try again tomorrow, with Courage.

Good Morning, Great Day.
Greater You, means a better environment for all of those around you.
