Courage to …

“I am not confident”

“I am not able to ….”

“I am lonely and alone …”

“I want more out of life but I don’t know how … ”

These are lines from people that are seeking something better in their lives.  Maybe it is a line that you have used yourself and are wondering, “Am I good enough”, “Am I able …”.

Those questions are often asked in a small voice and that restores for a moment the confidence that is lacking or missing.   Someone might feel sorry for me and would be able to connect with me for just a minute and that helps, but in the real day to day story  it is a cry for help and a desire to begin living a life that can be so much better. 

Life can be better and it takes work to make it better.  It takes an act of courage to change from not feeling good enough about yourself  to creating the life that is really desired.

“Courage , also known as fortitude, is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty or intimidation. It can be divided into “physical courage” — in face of physical pain, hardship, and threat of death — and “moral courage” — in the face of shame, scandal, and discouragement.”  (Wikiquote)

It takes courage to change, to become all that you can be and to give up the burdens that hold you back from being all that you could be.

It takes courage to to act and create the better tomorrow and hope that it can become what you truly desire.

From the inside out …

As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Life in the fast lane, life in the slow lane and life in the ditch, where is yours?

Some people are thrilled the way their life is going and some aren’t.   Some people are struggling each day to fit any piece of the puzzle of life together and others look like they have the puzzle completed.

The real puzzle isn’t what is seen on the outside, it is what is happening on the inside.   This is where life takes place, in the heart and in the soul.   Some people appear to have everything anyone could imagine and it could be that those are the very people who are struggling the most.    The calm exterior, the smiling face, the strong laugh, the unending positive story could be real or it could be a façade to a life that is empty and without meaning.

Living on the inside to make life on the outside great is a difficult task to achieve.   Living fully from the inside out means that you believe in who you are and where you are going.    Start making choices that boost the self-esteem and as a result leave you in a position where you have choices rather than having choices being made for you by others.

What does your life look like from the inside out?
