Courage- the mental and moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear or difficulty- comes from the latin root- heart. Thank you Miriam Webster for that definition.
Most parents probably could tell you that being a parent takes courage. It is an adventure full of unknowns, and in which both parent and child will persevere, will face dangers- real or imagined and of course be faced with difficulties.
As I reflected on my own parenting courage with each of my children, I also became aware of some different kinds of courage that I needed to be willing to be so that I can be more empowered to be me and to empower my kids to be all that they can be. I thought it would be interesting to list some of these "courage challenges" here and see if you identify with any of them.
Throughout the years of being a parent, I have grown into being more courageous and by doing so, I have enhanced my life and invited more joy, peace and confidence, especially as it relates to my children. These courage challenges have come to me through my experience of parenting, but they have expanded into all areas of my life- health, career and other relationships- increasing my ability to live a fuller conscious life that I create for my benefit.
Yes, being a parent takes courage and it can expand your courage into areas you never knew existed before.
