I suspect few of us would classify ourselves as being “courageous” – me being one of them.
I’ve never rescued anyone from the scene of an accident, or stood on the frontlines of battle during wartime.
But then I began to wonder if acts of heroics were the only actions allowing someone to be classified as courageous?
After doing a little digging, I came across this statement by Mary Anne Radmacher, which pretty much answered my question perfectly.
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”
While I’m in no way discrediting the selfless individuals out there who risk their own lives for the protection of others, I know how difficult it can be sometimes to look at another day with any kind of hope.
To gather your strength, put on a happy face and try to make today a better day.
And for all those individuals who understand exactly what I’m talking about, know that your determination to say “I’ll try again tomorrow” makes you some of the most courageous people in the world.
