The Art of Courage: Use Your Words

March 23, 2014

A "Courage Stone" given to my sons by a resource teacher in 2nd Grade.

"Courage is not the absence of despair;
it is, rather, the capacity to move ahead
in spite of despair."

-Rollo May, Psychologist

Life is not easy.  There are going to be times when you can't do anything to improve your job, your situation, or your mood.  Always remember that you can get back up, and try, try again.  Don't ever give up.  You will find the place you fit in, and you will move mountains.  Strive for the best in all that you do.  It's okay to leave a job or a relationship if it is not the best for you.  Walk away with pride in knowing that you are better.  You can do better.  You will do better.  Be courageous in knowing this, and remember that your mother never wants you to be in a job, relationship or situation in which you couldn't be anything but yourself, and your BEST self.  Use your best abilities, find your super power, and please don't use bad words.  You are better than that, and in choosing to use your best language, you give grace, empower and inspire others to do the same.
