What is Courage?
The heart of courage is hope. If we are to act courageously there must be something we are hopeful for. It may be as simple as having hope that our courage will save lives, or as complex as the hope that the courage to go against the grain of conformity, commonality and censorship will open up pathways to a new system of things where we are prized for our uniqueness, differences, oddities and idiosyncrasies.
It takes an extreme amount of courage to leave our past selves behind. Crossing thresholds has always taken an act of great courage. My hope is that in the end courage and cooperation will win over fear, shame, guilt and blame.
That is why I created SHE ROCKS LIFE™
