Err on the Side of Courage
Choose courage over comfort.
The author Anaïs Nin once wrote, “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.” That fits my experience.
Of course, courage is not recklessness. If there is a global pandemic, it’s appropriate to take precautions for one’s own wellbeing and the good of others.
Still, most of us could use some more courage. Our biggest regrets tend to be the times did not do something because we were afraid. We can justify the times we’ve tried and failed. It’s harder to accept the times we never tried at all.
Courage is not a switch that we simply turn on at will. It’s a habit we build. And we can work on it today. In fact, I dare you.
