A sheltered life
can be a daring life as well.
For all serious daring
starts from WITHIN .
Eudora Welty
The Universe gifts me
with courage in all things.
I cherish my own courage.
I salute myself for the brave action
I undertake in my life .
I focus
with clarity and appriciation
on the choices
I have made
which have requiered courage
and selfdetermination .
I applaud myself
for my strength
and my daring.
Rather than belittle myself
for my fears ,
I choose to honor myself
for the bravery
with wich I have often walked
through my fears .
I count back
in specific ways
and enumerate
for myself
of my own courage :
the new friendship
hIave undertaken ,
the steadiness I have shown
in a difficult job ,
the honesty I have displayed
in opening a difficult conversation .
I honor myself
for my bigheartness
in the face of challenges
from which I could have
- but did not -
shrunk back.
My courage
brings blessings to my life.
My courage
blesses the lives of others .
from my favourite book
by Julia Cameron.
Wishing you all moments
to think about YOUR COURAGE !

    Nee de armband is niet bij ons te koop, misschien ietwat verwarrend. Je kunt hem deze maand gewoon kopen bij de Etos en volgens mij ook Didi en je steunt dan de strijd tegen borstkanker.
    Je kunt op de site van Pink ribbon kijken daar is nog veel meer leuks te koop.
    Fijn weekend
