Softly Through Courage

Courage need not be in the form of a big dive off a cliff. Sometimes, it's a soft, sweet, gentle glide forward with slow and gentle steps. Sure footing...cautiously, optimistically. Slowly, softy, surely taking steps forward, solid in your conviction, and confidently in the direction of your courage. 

Sometimes courage comes from a very small space inside you, a little voice that hints and teases and sometimes eggs you on. Sometimes, you just take one small step, one easy kind gentle step. You try. You see how it feels. And then you take another and another and another. 

Sometimes courage can be sweet or delicate or nice. No...really? Yes, I think it can. It's not all bravado and ruggedness. 

Eye contact at the store when you usually avert gazes or hold your head down.

Reaching out to shake someone's hand. 

Hugging someone.

Smiling at someone. 

These small acts can serve to lift you outside of your comfort zone. Slowly, sweetly and gently. Courage isn't this big public dance on a stage in front of millions. Sometimes it's just a step forward, gently and sweetly. 

In Love and Sweetness,

But I Don't Want To

Or, oh crap this posted while I was just playing around with it. Oh well. Double crap...the other post I was working on disappeared. Oh well...chuckling. Back to this post. 

Okay, this is a favorite of mine. Nope...Nah...Don't feel like it...Don't make me. 

Sometimes, the courageous step is doing something we don't want to. But when is the best time to do that? Tomorrow? Next week? Next year? Probably, not ever. 

Sometimes pushing through challenge and discomfort frees us from entanglements

But, I don't wanna...

Don't make me...

Please no no no no...

Um...lemme try...

Wait, not now...

I'll just watch. You do it.

I'll watch.

Okay, I'm ready to try now.

No, not ready yet. 

Oh, I did it. 


Okay, what now?

What's next?

I did it. 

Oh crap. I did it.

Where are my excuses and fears and concerns and worries? Crap. Now, I can't find them. I know I set them somewhere. Did I pack them?

Oh, okay back to I did it. I didn't want to but I did. 


In Love and What the...oh well,

Musing...The other I was working on, that was entitled Element of Choice, disappeared on me. I wonder what that was about. Wonder if I'll recreate it for next week. Hmmm. Love this image up there. Sorta like Escher.
