Today’s Act of Courage

A year of courage can seem daunting. But I will look at it as 365 days (more or less) of little acts of bravery, of conquering fears.

My first step was to share this journey in this blog.

My second step, I took just now. And I’m still shaking from the thrill and the nerves…

Today’s act of courage… I asked other bloggers to join me in The Courage Chronicle. To join me in this journey.

What’s the scary part? The usual fear that no one will notice. The usual fear of rejection, of being judged. The fear that I may not be able to pull this through, to commit to it and to those who will join me.

But today, in the name of courage, I tell these fears, “No, you will not have any bearing on my act of courage today.”

In the name of courage, I tell myself, “So what if these fears and worries come true? It won’t be the end of the world. But it will be a big start for me. The important thing is, I did one scary thing today! What happens next, it doesn’t matter as much as the fact that I did it.”

Of course, it would be great to have another soul join me. It will make the journey less terrifying.

I close with a high-five to myself. Until the next challenge.
