#OneWord Thursday: #Courage…giving reality to your personal values.

Ghandi Candy2

A Double Dose of Courage by Janice Taylor, Weight Loss / Self-Help Artist

This past week, while walking through a real bookstore (vs. chair or online happening), I picked up a copy of “The Courage to Create” by Rollo May, a brilliant exploration of creativity.  The first chapter speaks to the different types of courage:  physical courage, moral courage, social courage and creative courage.

The word—courage—derived from the same stem as the French word coeur, meaning heart– appeared over and over again, which inspired me to read more about courage, which ultimately brought me to a few quotes about #courage!

Therefore, this week’s #OneWord Thursday centers around Courage:

10 Quotes—#COURAGE…giving reality to your personal values.

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. ~ Coco Chanel

Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim. ~ Nora Ephron

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. ~ Anais Nin

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear. ~ Mark Twain
