As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

Courage is not the absence of fear,
but rather the judgment
that something else is more important than fear.
~Ambrose Redmoon
This completely fit! And I was compelled to share this message.
We are all magnificent in our own perfect way. Fear often squelches our dreams and our lives. Fear of the unknown, fear or change, fear of failure. And in a moment of fear when you do the thing that you did not think you could do, it is usually because something greater is at stake. At that moment you know you have to act, courage must overcome the fear or the consequences could be grave.
When is your moment? What moment is it that will change your life? Will it be a life and death situation? An intense drama? Or is it as simple (but not easy) as an aha moment. Your epiphany. Really, take more than a minute to think about it. You have been blessed with something amazing that is unique to only you. Whatever gift has been given to you, share it with the world and turn it into action. What is the thing that makes your heart skip a beat, quicken your pulse and open your eyes wide.
Follow it, share it, enjoy it. People will usually think you are crazy when you follow your bliss, that often means you are on the right track! Find the warrior inside of you that is passionate to fight for your dreams. If you are lucky and find someone who gives you a high five...take it and smile...
Hand held high! ~j
