Courage is doing it anyways, even if it scares you. Courage is dancing when no one else is because the music moves you. Courage is recognizing the limits you have put on yourself in your mind and asking yourself to explore if those limits truly exist. Courage is an essential nature of your most authentic and unlimited self. The french word for Heart, is Cour and just like love it is an intrinsic part of the experience of being you.As we cross the threshold of spring I encourage you to dabble in, or dig in, or better yet, entrench yourself in your ability to be courageous. You never know where you may find yourself. One thing you can know for sure is that by spending your time worrying and being afraid you may experience less risk, yet in the end you will find yourself with nothing new accomplished other than that whole bunch of time you wasted worrying and fearful. The first New Moon of spring is today, Sunday March 30 at 12:45 PM MDT. This moon marks a potent time in which to step out of the box, over the threshold and into a new place of bravery and being you. Plant a seed, dance naked, tell someone you love them without fear, enjoy the rush of courageously taking the risk.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -Anaïs Nin
