The Courage to Do

by Nursetopia on May 23, 2012

It seems as though I have been reading and hearing about courage a lot recently. Maybe it’s my subconscious. You know, when you want to buy a new car and then you start seeing that exact car all over the place? Yep. That is happening to me now; only this time it’s about courage to fulfill a dream. It’s a rather recent dream. Nonetheless, it’s flourished rapidly from “That might be cool. Maybe someday,” to “I can totally do that. Right. Now.”


I had a moment this week when everything pointed in one direction. The puzzle picture became clear. It all made sense. The frayed and disarrayed threads of my past, present, and future experiences revealed a glimpse of the contralateral design. It sounds surreal, I know. I was there. It was.

Now, I need to do. That sounds much easier than the heavy reality I feel as I take small steps toward stepping out and actually doing. I am taking steps. That’s progress. I’ve learned a bit about courage; I plan to share some thoughts about that learning opportunity soon. I also hope to openly share this new-found, quickly-becoming-reality dream “soon.”

Thanks, Rob! I imagine you’ve pushed through this process a lot yourself!

My favorite quote and the one that got me through musing school with 4 kids is from Mark Twain…. “Why not go out on a limb? That’s where all of the fruit is.”

Congratulations on taking those first steps, those can be the hardest!

Sorry, I meant nursing school. Musing school might have been too much 😉
