Thriving Thursdays: Fear or Courage? (Guest Post by Teagan Riordain Geneviene)

Sage words….

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Hi, I’m Teagan Geneviene.  Today I’m doing a guest post for our wonderful Story Telling Ape.  I’m here to encourage you to thrive.

Today I’m not thinking about how daring the feat was.  Nor am I wondering how dangerous the situation was.  I’m not even considering what extraordinary valor may have been involved.

How brave is someone when they do something they don’t fear?  Are they braver than the person who trembles in terror? 

Fear can hold us back.  But to overcome fear is to thrive.  If you see a person, daunted by distress, who dives into the fray despite their dread — then you have witnessed courage.

Courage is being scared to death — and saddling up anyway…  John Wayne

Wishing you a thriving Thursday.

Mega hugs,

Teagan

  1. Hi Zoe — Crystal here. Thanks for sharing my human’s post. She’s not exactly thriving today, but I told her to fake it until she makes it — or just call in sick and take a nap, and give me plenty of chin scratches. She made a noise halfway between a croak and a growl. I think she’s going to work… Hugs! 🐱
