[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Courage is a habit

Everything I know about courage, I learned from completely messing up my
life.

(And, upon realizing I'd messed up something, deciding to learn from that).

Courage isn't something you're born with; it's a habit. It's a practice
that you create and cultivate over time.

Again: everything I know about courage, I learned from completely messing
up my life. Kate Courageous

Today I facilitate the JB Fernandes Memorial Trust Grantee Consultation at
the Hyatt Hotel from 7am, I am really grateful to be in a room with people
who are doing their best to make this planet a place to live, work and be
proud of, who have made their work a Ministry and is courageous enough to
go to a place of uncertainty on a daily basis

Giving thanks

Holla at ya on the other side

Peace
