It takes great courage
to try things
that others around us have not tried.
One can have courage while one has fear.
Courage does not mean the absence of fear.
To open new door,
to take new steps
while walking through our fear,
takes the greatest courage of all.
Each new door opened
gives us confidence to open the next door.
Faith and love,
and trusting ourselves,
takes us through unopened doors.
As we trust the goodness within us
and going beyond the fear,
life is an exciting,
and a fulfilling place to be.
