Little Quote About Courage

I came across this quote by Jonathon Lockwood Huie:

“Adventure is the child of courage.” – Jonathon Lockwood Huie

What often holds us back are our fears. We are afraid of the unknown, of change, of transition. We will often waver in our decisions, plagued by self-doubt. It can keep us in limbo, or feeling stuck for a long time.

I often talk about how curiousity tempers fear. In order to begin to move past our fears, we have to lean into our curiosity, gathering information about the what-ifs. This process will eventually ask courage to join the mix. As we begin to work through our fears, the courage to make a decision, to step forward, to challenge the status quo, becomes stronger and we can begin to create stepping stones to structural change.

And when we have both curiousity, followed by courage? That is where we will find adventure 🙂

    • Hi Brian, for sure! Thanks for acknowledging what many people struggle with; not only fear but the fear of fear! I suppose that is why it is important to find our courage through curiousity 🙂
