There is an internal power that lies at the core of courageousness. In fact, the origin of the word courage comes from “cor,” (Latin) or “Coeur” (French) meaning “Heart.” The word itself beckons us to bring our attention within, to focus on the “interior.” It is a measure of our “Heartfelt” participation with life, with another, with our work, or our community. To be courageous is to make conscious those things we already feel deeply. And when we do this, we will confront our own vulnerabilities, but also recognize that the rewards can be immeasurable.
And so, for this unique year, let us go inward and dig deeply as we fully participate and create meaningful, profound connection with our world. Let us become heartfelt, courageous lovers, protectors and supporters of one another, our community and our planet.
I consider that the most Coeur-ageous new year’s resolution ever.
MMXX Blessings for each of you!
