courageous girl you may be terrified to your very core but make sure you do it anyway. because i promise you, that moment of courage will change your life, it will open doors, whether it’s the door you want or another door that’s meant for you, it will push you forward into something more than what was before. - sarah claire. ———————————————————————————————
i was reading this quote and reflecting on things ive done lately that have required courage. honestly, thinking of it i realized that getting Athos took courage. it takes courage to walk out that door every day with him by my side as a huge sign for everyone i come across that im not ok. it isn’t easy being under constant watch, being stopped by strangers asking personal questions, always making sure athos and i are at the top of our game, and a good example of what a service dog team should look and act like. it can be extremely tiring. but, it’s also so much more than that. im so thankful i find that courage within me every day, because it’s allowed me a whole new outlook on life. it’s allowed me my best friend, my side kick, my shelter from this storm. it’s allowed me to meet so many beautiful people, and create some incredible friendships.
having courage to do something new, to put yourself out there, isn’t easy. but having courage can create a whole new world you never could’ve dreamed of.
what about you? how have you displayed courage lately?
