A Shared Community to Learn How to Apply and Benefit from Everyday Courage!


Some people have said that courage is living a life with no regrets. We likely all have had moments of regret in our pasts but we can make different choices for our lives in the present.

My own experiences have taught me many life lessons about the application of everyday courage. The one that is perhaps among the most significant and heartfelt is portrayed in my article:

Comments from readers about the article:

  • “This article is profound. A lot of emotions came out while I was reading it. It is a reminder of the importance of embracing our courage, regardless of age or stage of life!”
  • “I knew this article was ‘important’ the moment I read the first few paragraphs. I believe the message should be shared or published everywhere so people have tools and ways to articulate their emotions during times of uncertainty.”
  • “Everyone needs a reminder that life is short and precious. I was moved to courageous action when I called a friend I had not talked to in years. The call apparently happened at just the right time—for both of us.”

Regardless of your present situation, a gentle reminder that prods you to reflect on your everyday choices is important . . . NOW. Reminders offer us an opportunity to align our thoughts and actions to our true Self for a productive, healthy and prosperous 2016.
