“it is courage that restores hope to the heart” John O’Donovan

“…courage is amazing because it can tap in to the heart of fear, taking that frightened energy and turning it toward initiative, creativity, action and hope. When courage comes alive, imprisoning walls become frontiers of new possibilities, difficulty becomes invitation and the heart comes into a new rhythm of trust and sureness. There are secret sources of courage inside every human heart; yet courage needs to be awakened in us. the encounter with the Beautiful can bring such an awakening. Courage is a spark that can become a flame of hope, lighting new and exciting pathways on what seem to be dead, dark landscapes.”
