What does joyful courage mean to you
I love this question! I think courage is really misunderstood. Some people think courage means you’re not afraid, but courage is really doing something even when you are afraid. Making these changes I’m suggesting can be really really scary, but courage is doing it anyway, even though you’re scared because you know joy is just on the other side.
