Freedom of Being Courageous


Few of us find freedom in completely being ourselves. Courageous.

We fear being different.
Afraid of what others may think of us.

So we either conform
or adopt a, “I don’t give a shit attitude.”

We fear that if we do not keep striving, all that we are afraid of will catch up to us and hunt us down.

So we don’t stop long enough to reflect.
To draw on our own inner source of strength.

To trust
or be in a place of gratitude for this glorious, perfect moment of being alive.

We fear that if we speak the truth, the rawness of what we feel may not be accepted or understood. We may even experience rejection.

So we hold in our true feelings until our joy gets squelched.
Our soul becomes a distant echo of longing.

We fear loving others and ourselves because it hurts like hell to love.
To care.

So we act like we don’t give a damn.
We become somewhat hardened and may even shut down.

We may not be able to reach out and embrace the love that is always at our finger tips, the love that is within us.

We fear being courageous…

As if running around with our invisible capes helping others, often unsolicited, rather than acknowledge our own daily actions of courage.

So we become a rescuer.

Though we often overlook being the hero in our own life.
Of saving ourselves.

It’s tough.
It takes balls to be courageous, loving, brave, beautiful, honest and mindfully grateful.

So why not just accept the fact that we already are…

Beautifully brave.
Yes, alive and kicking ass!

High Five to the Freedom of Being Courageous!
