Often times we think of courage as a quality that's needed only in situations that require us to let go. Whether that's letting go of a partner, a job, a home, a way of life, or a way of being for example.
Yet, equally as important, and far less spoken about, is the courage required to move towards something. To embrace or choose a new way of life, a new job, a new partner, a new geography, a new and unfamiliar way of operating in the world.
We can call upon and embody courage to let go as well as to live. It takes as much, if not more courage to say yes as it does to say no.
Courage is yours when you need it, regardless of context.
Let go and live, as the saying goes, either way, both take courage.
