Courage

I learned that
courage was not
the absence of fear,
but the triumph
over it.”

.
~Nelson Mandela

.
Fear is useful, at times.
Fear keeps one from putting their hand on a hot stove,
keeps one from walking out into the street before looking,
and keeps one from putting all of their eggs into one basket.
However, many of our fears are false,
we make them up.
Real fears, false fears,
know the difference and act accordingly.
For all your fears, have faith, pray, ask a friend,
and when it is apparent that our fears are false,
let go and let God have them.
Life is having the courage to triumph over false fears.
Life is living and loving in the here and now.
