We are all a lot braver than we perceive ourselves to be. I’ve lived in a foreign country; graduated from college with high marks; and recovered from months of bed rest and resultant mind-numbing solitude. We’ve all overcome challenges we didn’t think we could. Just because we don’t know what’s going to happen, doesn’t mean we can’t handle it. You have to trust your instincts, and you have to have faith. Your life just doesn’t work as well if you don’t. And each day, I inch towards courage. I move towards faith. I believe in a brighter future now. I believe in myself.
