Courage

cour·age - noun - 1. the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery. 2. Obsolete . the heart as the source of emotion.

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 is being afraid but going on anyhow. ~Dan Rather

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.~Winston Churchill

Embrace courage with each step of your journey and you shall find yourself closer to life. ~Cher Green

Sometimes it's hard to overcome fear and take the next step. What choice do we have?

If you find yourself stalled, perhaps fear blocks your way. Discover your fear and conquer it.

As writers, each word, each sentence, and each new book can represent fears, but it only takes a few keystrokes or pencil marks to push past it. Step on fear and squash it before it becomes too large. Have courage.

Hope everyone is having a creative day!

Some folks fear or dread public speaking, avoiding it at all costs. I guess writing, in a way, is a form of public speaking.

I dread book readings, but I do them anyway, and try not to think too much about anything but the words.

Great post, Cher.

There's always something to fear, but we overcome these fears everyday.
