"We need the courage to start and continue what we should do and courage to stop what we shouldn't do." - Richard L. Evans

What is courage? Many of us think it involves surviving against all odds. Some of us believe courage is personified by an individual like Helen Keller, who coped with many physical defects to vastly change her life and the lives of those around her. Others of us believe courage is personified by people like astronaut John Glenn, who took risks trying something new knowing he could fail.

Are we courageous? Compared to those people we would probably say no. Yet we are because we have taken risks to change our lives. Being willing to change is an act of courage. Believing in change and forging ahead on the new, uncharted path is an act of courage.

We are the only ones who can change ourselves. Just as Helen Keller and John Glenn made decisions to alter their lives, so do we make decisions to risk changes. Whether we started on our new way of life years ago, days ago, or even hours ago, we are filled with courage because of the decisions we made.

I can say the Serenity Prayer and remember my courage.
Courage comes from within when I surrender to my Higher Power and ask for help, of myself, I can not make the changes. In order to find the courage, I need to find acceptance. Acceptance of what is in the moment starts the process, it doesn't happen all at once, for me it was in very small increments.

Something I posted on another site in 2006.

I found out that you can`t wear out the Serenity Prayer.


Love always,


I share because I care.
