(Combined reading & listening time 1.5 minutes)
Change is hard. There’s been quite a lot of upheaval around here in the last month. Some, but not all, have been changes of my own making. That doesn’t make it any less challenging to adapt to new routines, new ways of doing and being. Part of what I’ve been learning is that keeping my focus on the essential things is the difference between riding the wave or being dumped underneath it. Some things that feel essential actually only have our attention for a season. Others are always important. For me, courage is always important. Sometimes the courageous choice looks like doing less. Sometimes it’s doing things differently or not at all and still others it’s jumping in ready or not.
With that in mind, this week, I thought I’d share my top 5 tips for cultivating courage.
Make the choice to start building courage. Once you’ve chosen to be courageous, every time you’re faced with a decision, you already know you’re going to choose courage. All that’s left, is to figure out what feels like the bravest option for you.
