Courage - It's All Relative
[Editor's Note: Excellent personal account about courage and how it is so often relative, in the eye of the beholder. What seems courages to me might not be a stretch for you and how we can learn from each other. - Paula G]
Courage Is In The Eyes Of The Beholder
The other night I had dinner with a friend who was in town after moving away last year to Hawaii. She is one of those people whose courage I always admire so I told her so. I know how hard it is to pick up and move to a new city where you don't know anyone. Add on that the new city is a14 hour plane ride away and I call that very brave.
Her first reaction was to tell me no, she didn't feel all that courageous, but then she thought about it and saw the truth through my eyes.
