Courage

I remind myself of this frequently.  I am not a very courageous person.  I am able to be more courageous in my writing than in my life.  I need more balance.
From the Episcopal Women’s Caucus blog written by Bonnie Anderson
“C.S. Lewis reminds us ‘Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point’. Courage animates all our virtues, ­honesty, confidence, humility, compassion, integrity, valor. Without courage all these virtues lie dormant. Without regular use, our courage becomes harder for us to conjure up, less available to us. If we are not regularly courageous, our courage dries up. ‘Courageous’ becomes only a memory of how we used to be.”
