Nope, I’m not resuming my boxing career… 🤣
I proudly bowed out, undefeated, a few years ago! 🤗🤗🤗
But a great session in the gym this morning (and the last of our classes for a while), had me thinking of courage, at a deeper level. 🤔🤔🤔
Just because you are courageous, doesn’t mean that you don’t or can’t experience fear. It doesn’t mean that you won’t feel afraid…
On the contrary, we have the ability to experience fear and feel afraid, however, we do NOT let this stop us from overcoming the obstacles or pitfalls along the way.
And it’s important to remember this.
We ALL have our ways of living life and have strengths and abilities that are unique to us, that have always pulled us through.
What if we were to give those capabilities a bit more attention and utilise them before we unconsciously feel the need to ‘pull’ through something?
What if we were to really strengthen those resilience muscles within us that are there, underneath the surface?
And just like I took to those pads this morning like a duck to water, (those muscles and drive are still there!!!), what if we were to bring what we know we have to the surface and utilise them a little more???
Because we can…
1. Think of a time where you feel that you showed courage?
2. What strengths can you recall having experienced?
3. What did that feel like… determination/power/nothing will or can stop me?
And bring those feelings into your day today.
Allow those muscles to flex.
Let them become a more obvious part of you as you feel and see how powerful you really are!
