My theme for the A to Z Blog Challenge @AprilA2Z during the month of April is ~ My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
— Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird.
The only way being Strong can truly be considered courageous is when we come to that point where there’s no other choice. Those times where we’re forced to act boldly, and when every part of us is resisting and wanting to run away. Not always is the ‘warrior’ someone on the battlefield. More often than not, it’s the person who is obscure and unrecognized. It’s that determination not to ever give up and to persevere to the end. After facing that choice enough times over our lives, we know that feeling of courage and we recognize it as a force that brought us through. We know we can survive anything!
“I wish I had known from the beginning that I was born a strong woman. What a difference it would have made! I wish I’d known that I was born a courageous woman; I’ve spent so much of my life cowering. How many conversations would I not only have started but finished if I had known I possessed a warrior’s heart? I wish I’d known that I’d been born to take on the world; I wouldn’t have run from it for so long, but to it with open arms.”
