For most of my life, I’ve held myself back from being courageous, because I was experiencing discomfort or anticipating it.
I’ve not done things that I’ve wanted to do; said things I’ve wanted to say; been the person I really am – all because I was unwittingly choosing comfort, over courage, every time.
And what is discomfort anyway, other than a slightly unnerving feeling? Is it really so terrible? Is avoiding these sensations really worth the hit you take when you fail to be courageous?
Leader of the vulnerable, Brene Brown, says that every morning she sets an intention:
“Today, I will choose courage over comfort”.
So of course… STEALING IT!
Because it’s a small price to pay for living the life you wish to live; for being truly comfortable in your authentic self.
