Sometimes courage comes in small packages, more of a whisper than a roar. It can be the simple things, facing another day of radiation, getting out of bed to get the exercise you need to recover from an operation, continuing with chemo treatments in spite of the side effects, that take the most courage. I’ve found that I face difficult challenges better if they are sudden and over quickly, but things don’t always go according to my preferences!
“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
We all face struggles of one sort or another. Where do you find the courage to quietly say “I’ll try again tomorrow?” Here are some things that have worked for me.
1) I have a great group of relatives, friends, and church family that have offered overwhelming support when I need it. Sometimes, when I run out of courage, I borrow theirs. I would be lost without these people and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
2) I have found courage by reading scripture and other inspirational readings. I try to read something positive every day to build my courage.
3) I have calmed my mind and held onto my whisper of courage using recording meditations nightly to help me sleep and to build positive energy.
