365 day of peace: a courageous peace

KIMG0568Number 39 is made from walnut. I was thinking about violence and fear today. ¬†Fear is a funny thing. So is bravery. We all have fears. Little things that we brush up against and ignore. Big things that we smash into and ignore. Having too much fear is just as debilitating as not having enough. How often do we lash out in fear? Fear can connect us if we let it and it can tear us apart. Courage is more than conquering fear. It starts with acceptance. It’s being afraid and doing the right thing anyway. ¬†39 down 326 to go.
