I have just been checking through my instagram account and saw a picture with the tag line “you were made to be courageous.” And I thought, but I don’t feel courageous.
Of course, courage isn’t about how you feel. It’s about what you do when you don’t feel like you can do.
So what am I going to do? I have written this post. I am going to wash the dishes. Cook dinner.
Maybe somehow, in the facing my small everyday responsibilities I will be less overwhelmed by the very big and very real challenges that I face. Maybe courage is like joy. Maybe when you feel like the courage is leaking out, it is an opportunity for the courage to leak back in.
And even if not, at least I will have a clean kitchen.
