Ordinary Courage

Everyone is capable of ordinary courage. Ordinary courage is not a matter of fighting, struggling or sacrificing; it is revealed wherever someone is willing to make him or herself vulnerable.

If you’ve spent your life fortifying yourself against the world, you may have realized that walls keep things from coming in, but they also stop things from getting out.

Life is about radiance. Hide and your light will be hidden; you must unmask yourself to live.

    Courage springs not from a forced bravado, not from gritting one’s teeth, but from a steady and deep sense of one’s own worth, one’s own unique capacity to contribute to the scheme of life. Reality, including an awareness of the truth of oneself, is the only ally that will not fail.
