Too often we are scared, scared of what we might not be able to do, scared of what people might think if we tried, we let our fears stand in the way of our hopes. Why? There's really no time to be afraid. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Everything!” ~ unknown
"Opening your heart to embrace the person or situation that pains you could be one of the most life-transforming experiences you’ll ever have. It can also be one of the most courageous, for love takes courage and it takes will. Love takes courage because it forces us into unknown territory. Mark Prophet used to define courage as "coeur-age"--the coming of age of the heart (coeur in French). Courage is the development of the love and wisdom of the heart that emboldens us to take the action that is right, honorable and necessary, even if it is temporarily uncomfortable."
