Quotation for Wednesday 6th May 2020

Good morning everyone,

I thought I'd choose courage again today as my theme. and I've chosen an anonymous poem I found online. Our collective courage has been absolutely amazing in holding on through this crisis. From start to finish, in 101 ways we've had to dig into our deepest inner resources to keep going and fight the fight. I think we all deserve a pat on the back for the courage we've displayed, whether fighting the illness itself, on the front line of help, or contributing in quieter ways by obeying rules, staying home and just trying to get through.

"Courage is the strength to stand up, when it's easier to fall down and lose hold.

It is the conviction to explore new horizons, when it's easier to believe what we've been told.

Courage is the desire to maintain our integrity, when it's easier to look the other way.

It is feeling happy and alive, and moving forward, when it's easier to feel sorry for ourselves and stay.

Courage is the will to shape our world, when it's easier to let someone else do it for us.

It is the recognition that none of us are perfect, when it's easier to criticise others and fuss.

Courage is the power to step forward and lead, when it's easier to follow the crowd; their pleas resound.

It is the spirit that places you on top of the mountain, when it's easier to never leave the ground.

The foundation of courage is solid. The rock that doesn't roll.

Courage is the freedom of our mind, body, and soul!"

Take care everyone, and continue to be as courageous as you have already been, every day! πŸ™
