Where does our courage come from? And what does it serve? Courage can conjure images of heroic feats, but it also lives in the simple acts of personal truth. The moments we face our fears great or small: when we stand up for ourselves or someone else; when we hold our ground, or take meaningful risks.
The root of the word comes from the word "heart" and the original meaning of the courage was “to speak one's mind by telling all one's heart.” What does courage mean to you? What courageous acts have you taken or want to take? And how do we understand that which we fear to better understand what courage is?
This month, we’re getting curious about courage and its place in our lives. Explore the question for yourself, with those you find courageous, or in support of someone who is taking a leap.
Our nonprofit partner this month is The Freedom to Choose Project. Their award-winning educational programs shift and uplift lives of people impacted by incarceration and addiction by teaching proven, practical tools for communication and emotional freedom.
