One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest. – Maya Angelou
That’s a scheme of the Universe. Create imperfect creatures with a boatload of potential! That potential is largely sitting untapped inside us. We’ve dug some and and unearthed a bit, but there’s a lot more. It’s an ongoing quest!
We may decide to be true for example but without courage we could falter in the first tough situation that we face. Constant vigilance with a solid foundation of courage is what’s needed in our attempts to be virtuous. What’s your challenge?
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM courage itself. I pursue Truth, Beauty and Goodness.
