How to Have More Courage
Updated: Oct 8, 2022
When courage calls, do you answer? Learn how to live with strength in your mind, peace in your body and courage in your heart.
When I think of courage, I think about leaving fear in the shadows in favor of opening my arms to embrace love in a warm hug. It takes courage to love, grow and live. I wrote the list below from the perspective of a busy working mom, but this list can be applied to anyone holding hands with courage as a friendly guide on the next step in their journey.

It takes courage to:
Change patterns that have been so deeply rooted in you that they are part of your everyday existence—behaviors such as what you eat for breakfast (if you eat it) to what time you go to bed (when you feel like it, anyone?), even how you sit, stand and breathe
Live an inspired life
Live the life you have imagined for yourself
Take good care of yourself and know that you’re worth it
Show up in your own life every day for you and your kids
Present your true self, your highest self, to the world
Choose to live in high vibration
Say “no” to that which no longer serves you
Say “yes” to that which would serve you better
Ask for what you want
State what you need
Ask for help
Be a working mom (Building a career while growing and raising kids is one of the most courageous modern-day paths I know of.)
Be in a relationship
Be a leader
Live with intention
Try something new
Do the inner work
Stand up for your self-care
This is a living list, and I’d like to keep it growing and going.
