A Gifted Badge of Courage

“You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.” 
–Mary Tyler Moore

There is nothing wonderful about having bad things happen to us.  Yet, I find the quote above to be so very true.  Bravery is earned, not granted.  And, the earning part? Well, it comes from transcending life's difficulties.

No, I have not earned my "red badge" yet.  But, I'm working on it.  Today, and in the next few days, my own courage is the gift I give to myself (and, as a result, those around me).  

What gift will you give yourself, today? In choosing, let it be the one you need most.

Love and peace.  T.
