Compassionate Conversations for a Courageous Life

Heart and the words Compassionate Conversation for a Courageous Life

Sometimes it takes 20 seconds of courage

What I have found to be true is that sometimes, our greatest courage comes in loving ourselves in the midst of the chaos, hurt, and pain. Our greatest triumph is in the courage to be right here, right now.

When the present is difficult, hard, or painful, we may want to live in the past or shift our thoughts to the future. Sometimes, we\’d like to be anywhere but here, now.

This is the time to have courage. To rage with all our heart at what is at work upon us, within us, and around us. It’s a time to remember that today is tomorrow\’s past. We will move beyond our present woe if we allow ourselves to be in it, now.

This is a time to move deeply into our bodies and into our heart\’s center. To breathe into and through what’s difficult and painful from our heart’s center, until it moves through us and beyond us. Because our heart never fails us.

It\’s a time to “rage” with all our hearts.

This is “cour”-rage.

If we can do this, even “just for today,” something amazing will surely come into our lives.

When the storms of life begin to batter you and break you,

May you have the courage to be fully in the present and in the life within you and around you.

May you find that 20 seconds of courage in the here and now, and rage with all your heart to do what you once thought impossible.

May your courage strengthen you and always guide you back to Love.
