Brave, Courageous & Daring
It can be hard to get started on the path of doing inner work. The inner work of therapy can be intimidating, scary and uncomfortable. It can stir up old feelings that lead to our transformation, and it might mean that we will have to let go of things that haven’t been serving us.
Just because we’re on the way to feeling better, doesn’t mean that it’s easy to let the past go. It’s brave to show up for yourself and move into the next chapter of your life: feeling brighter, lighter and more connected to yourself. It’s strong to get started moving towards your goals- even though it may be scary.
It’s something to be proud of -getting started; it is brave, courageous, and daring.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. - Theodore Roosevelt
