Love and courage

Don’t be reckless, but don’t cower in fear either. Be careful, yet not so careful that you fail to live your life.

The world has always been filled with danger and it will continue to be. You’re smart enough and capable enough to navigate the dangers and still enjoy great fulfillment.

Some risks are foolish and others are well worth taking. Get clear about what you intend, and you’ll learn as you go what risks are appropriate for you.

Recognize your fears and pay attention to what they tell you. At the same time, don’t allow fear to immobilize you.

The courage to act in the face of fear is well within your reach. Summon that courage by reminding yourself of what you must do to support and nurture all you love and care about.

With purpose and intention, you can handle the fear. And with love and courage, live your life.

— Ralph Marston
