Courage. What makes a King out of a slave? Courage. What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage. What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage. What makes the Sphinx the 7th Wonder? Courage. What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage.*
So then what makes the broken adult take the first few steps once again? Courage.
Here is to my last week at my job! The two weeks’ notice was put in last week. I have been telling people that I am officially enrolled in this program and orientation is next week! Goodness, this is really happening.
That thought both terrifies and excites me.
I don’t know that I can recall the last time that I started something new; aside from moving around and starting up again, but that, to me, is the same ole’ routine. I cannot recall the last time that I adventured out, on a new journey, with a new destination.
This process came up so quickly, has lined up so perfectly, has been stress-free that I am in absolute awe. My soul is at peace, my mind is excited for new challenges, even my heart is beginning to hope in a new adventure.
There is a small voice of fear that makes me doubt, and I feel uncertain. “What if this plan falls apart? What if I fall, again?” I’d love nothing more than to quiet that voice! I want to be strong! I want to believe!
There is a small amount of fear trying to push in to my heart, making me want to back out of this.
Breathe. Step-by-Step. Hour-by-Hour. Here I come. Wish me luck and send me courage!
Here’s to the adults on a new path—may we find the courage to get there and get going!
