Maya Angelou has got to be one of the very few people on earth that I consider an idol. It doesn’t happen often but ever once in a while I come across someone who just inspires me in so many ways. Her writing and wisdom hits me every time.
Once again with this quote she nails it. Courage is not always the fanfare that you see in books and movies. Actually, courage rarely shows it’s face so blatantly. More often than not it is in the simple things of life. It’s everywhere, just behind the skin.
Take a look at what you do, or say. I mean really take a good look. Be honest, brutally. You may find that you’re full of courage you never realized you had. Never forget, that courage is an everyday thing, whether we realize it or not. Those who live without it, are often the ones who seep more from the world and their relationships. They are usually the ones that drain and whither those beautiful things around them. Courage will never be in destruction and negativity, only in a positive life will you find it.

I’m a Goth/Hippie who loves to try new things and dabbles in anything and everything that I find enjoyment in. That can include but is not limited to, cooking, art, digital design, jewellery making, photography, gardening, nature, animals and whatever else strikes my fancy. I’m an optimistic (occasionally) perfectionist (constantly), who can be very sarcastic (incessantly), but all in good humour. :)
