I have my wonderful and inspiring sister to thank for this post. She wrote a great quote and shared it. It went something like, "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is that small voice that says, I will try again tomorrow." When I looked it up, it was written by Mary Anne Radmacher.. Wonderful quote.
And how true it is. LIfe rarely demands huge, couragous acts. Once is awhile, however, if you're tuned in and listening to your heart, you'll be asked to stand up, speak out and act with greatness that places you above your day to day grind. But, in reality, life isn't the unfolding of a hollywood movie plot, its the small moments we encounter everyday that become our lives.
I've been riding a high for the last two months or so, lapping up the sweet feeling of zen and fully embracing the wonders of true unattachment. All has been going well, that is, until yesterday. And it was nothing inparticular that brought my energy down, just the accumulation of a few things.....and in the grand scheme of things, I always remember that "this too shall pass. And I know it will pass. I am also reminding myself that courage comes in all forms and in all sizes.
My energy might be down, but that is the nature of life and tomorrow is another day.
