Monday - quote day

"It takes courage to be the author of your life. When you are struggling through one of the difficult parts of turning your dreams into reality, you may wonder why you always get stuck with having to put up with so much fear and uncertainty. Why, you wonder, couldn't I feel more courageous, like those other people do? You don't feel courageous because courage is not an emotion. There is no such thing as feeling "courageous". It is an imaginary emotion. Courage consists of doing what you said you would do even when you don't want to. In the face of danger you have a choice to be the delegate of either your commitments or your feelings. It's as simple and as difficult as that."
 - Nicholas Lore, "The Pathfinder"

Good quote. We have to just do it and pretend we have the courage, even when we don't. And tha tis hard. And, the worst thing is, we have to do it again tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.
