Shows Up In the Darnedest Places! #133
Great advice. Thanks for the reminder.
Wonderful post and excellent links, thank you!
To live any kind of life every day takes courage, without doubt. As much for youngsters, teenagers, twenty somethings, forty somethings and then we oldies.
Your words are always golden! You give us so much to ponder and hopefully to act upon. Your advice is spot on and I, for one, appreciate every bit of it! So, thank you, sincerely.
Extremely true about the courage of surviving the day to day 🙏
What an upbeat, encouraging article. I have never broken down the word before - en-courage - to give someone courage. That is what you do. Great writing, Janice, as always! I always walk away from reading Aging Well feeling... um...... WELL!
When we have had someone to lean on for many years and then that's gone, it can take courage just to start your day. Little by little, by experimenting as you said, your courage starts to embrace you and you it.
With kindness as your compass, you can achieve so much. And you will.
Thank you for the sweet reference to my article about Assertive Kindness. I'd like to say that I have that mastered....but not yet. Still a work in progress! 💚
Janice thank you so much for quoting & sharing my article❤ It is deeply meaningful to me to know that my words may have had a lasting impact, beyond a quick read, on a reader.
As prue mentioned in the comments, sometimes it seems as if the Fates play unkindly with the humans! This is why it's our job to step up to the plate and take responsibility for our lives, as you said. As much as we want to change the system, and the whole world most days, we can't. But we can work deeply on ourselves and go forward from that place of light and emotional maturity to create change within our sphere, whatever that may be.
Oh this is good! I rarely saw anything I did as an act of courage until recently.
Facing things with courage makes it easier ❤️
