"You're more courageous than you think"
Ok, you got me, I’m actually writing about how to be courageous while I’m still learning how to be more courageous myself, but I think that’s what’s going to make today’s recipe so special. To be honest, I’m not sure anyone has actually MASTERED courage on every level but I definitely believe that we can learn from each other's courageous acts.
What do courageous acts look like?
For years I thought that courage meant having a super strength that was only attainable by others. I think I felt this way because I watched a lot of heroic movies. You know, the kind where a hero would sip some magic drink and gain a sudden strength to save the world. Or maybe he would get bit by a spider and was able to climb on walls, shoot out webs and fight evil villains. I was inundated with the idea that courage was for superhero’s, or maybe a firefighter but certainly not for me because I was just a regular human being. However, I found out that I was wrong; courage was for me and courage is for you too!
Courage has different faces.
I have learned that courage looks like every name and every face. It looks like Martin Luther King Jr and John Doe, or Jessica Doe. My point is, people do courageous acts all the time, myself included because being courageous is making tough decisions regardless of feeling fearful it is the ability to do something that frightens you. For example, courage looks like a person who was tempted to lie but chooses integrity despite the consequences. Courage looks like the person who makes a difficult decision about the health of someone they love, courage looks like changing careers, or taking on a challenging class, courage looks like many things because being courageous means moving forward regardless of fear.
You are courageous!
If you are faced with a difficult decision, I hope you choose courage despite fear because even if you don’t know it yet, you are courageous!
I chose Courage Juice for today's recipe because I want you to imagine yourself drinking this cup of juice just like they often do in superhero movies. Imagine drinking this and gaining that super strength to make that tough decision today. The one that you think that you can't make. The one that frightens you.
