Courage Does Not Always Roar

8 10 2011

When you run out of strength
and you want to give up
because it’s just too much to bear…

I want to remind you, my precious friend,
that you have what it takes inside…
extraordinary courage that may not ROAR
but it doesn’t cower and hide

It’s the quiet voice inside you that says,
“Tomorrow I’ll try again.”
It’s the courage to keep on going…
to see things through to the end

You are not defined by this moment in time.
You are not what has happened to you
It’s the way you choose to respond that matters
and what you decide to do

Courage is not the absence of fear,
but a powerful choice we make…
the choice to move forward with PURPOSE
. . . regardless of what it takes

It’s the courage that’s found in ordinary women
who are HEROES in their own way,
exhibiting strength and fortitude
in life’s challenges every day…

Valiant woman of exceptional courage
with enduring power to cope…
taking each problem one day at a time
and never giving up HOPE.

We’re encouraged by the faith of others
to survive and overcome,
with the courage to say, “I may be down…
but the battle is not done!”

For the WOMAN of COURAGE is a winner…
regardless of what she loses
She displays amazing beauty and strength
with the attitude she chooses

She gives herself the permission she needs…
to feel disappointed or sad.
But then she empowers herself with faith…
to focus on good things…not bad

Her story is one of gentle strength
reminding us all once more…
Steel is sometimes covered in velvet
and…
COURAGE doesn’t always roar

20 Words That Are Life Changing

2 09 2011

BEGIN

Take charge of your life by beginning something you’ve always wanted to do.  If your goal seems overwhelming, start small.

IMAGINE

Your imagination has no boundaries…”dreaming about something is the first step towards achieving it.”

LAUGH

“Laughter is a direct route to the soul.  It broadens your perspective, keeps you healthy, and makes an unbearable situation easier to deal with.”

BELIEVE

Set your mind to predict success.  Tell yourself you will succeed at whatever you’re doing  at the moment.

SEEK

Allow yourself to grow by exposing your vulnerability and insecurity.  Don’t live strictly inside your comfort zone-don’t always play it safe.

PLAY

We can always find something that “needs to be done” and we forget how to have fun.  Make a conscious effort to take time off-you’ll feel refreshed and able to think more clearly afterwards.

TRUST

“…being paralyzed by indecision is worse than making the wrong decision.”  You can’t grow if you don’t trust your inner voice.

LISTEN

Try listening carefully to the other person’s point of view first, without being preoccupied or distracted.  You’ll really hear what is being said and the other person is more likely to pay attention to your views.

CREATE

Creativity maintains the balance in our lives.  The more we use our creativity, the more it develops.

CONNECT

Relationships are what pulls us through the hard times, and make the good times meaningful.  Take time to nurture the connections that uplift you.

TOUCH

Humans need touch to survive and thrive.  Don’t forget to hug your loved ones.  Pat your friends on the back, literally and figuratively.

FORGIVE

Forgiveness is life-giving because it puts you in charge.  You become empowered.

PRAY

 

“Prayer is asking God to transform the situation and become the heart of your life.”  Take time each day to nurture this connection.

HOPE

“Hope is the knowledge that even in the worst of times we can triumph over hardship and sorrow and grow in spirit.”  Hope is what sustains humanity.

CHOOSE

“We can’t always choose our circumstances, but we can choose our attitudes towards them.”

APPRECIATE

Admire the good in yourself and in those around you.

GIVE

Happiness involves giving freely to others and not necessarily wanting something in return.

READ

Reading removes boundaries.

WRITE

Words are Freedom.  Words are Power.

RELEASE

Avoid doing something just because everyone thinks you should.  Give yourself permission to relax.
