Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, and your values become your destiny ~ Mahatma Gandhi
As a wordsmith, writer, storyteller and creative writing coach, words are my paint colours. I love word play, etymology and even puns.
Did you know that words, either written or spoken, are also wonderful manifesting tools?
Words are a magic connection to the Universe. Words are magnetic affirmations that draw to us the very things we talk and think about. We can use the power of words to create a better life for ourself and our loved ones!
Because the words we choose and use are so powerful, I’ve decided to start a new series called, “Word of the Week.” Yes, every Tuesday, I’m going to explore the wonderful world of words and share how they can be real game changers in your life!
And today’s word is COURAGE.
Courage means bravery. It’s the quality that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear. It comes from the French word, “cœur“ which means “heart“ and so courage means coming from the heart and from love.
To me courage is about being fearless and standing up for what we believe in even if/when no one else in the room agrees. It’s about putting ourself out there while risking exposure, vulnerability, emotional discomfort, criticism, judgement, rejection, ridicule, torture or possibly even death.
It takes courage to speak up, do something different, and go against the grain. It takes courage to fight for change.
It’s not easy to live a life of courage and to live from the heart, but it’s worth it!
Do you know anyone who has courage? Have you ever done anything courageous in your own life? Is there something that has been bothering you that you can’t tolerate anymore that you need to speak up about and that requires courage?
These are the kinds of things we talk about in my creative writing coaching programs and if words are your thing too, consider signing up for my next Spiritual Practice of Creative Writing group coaching program, starting Tuesday, May 10, 2022.
My coaching programs are a safe place to explore ideas and are all about opening up the channels of creativity, breaking free from what might be in the way, creative self-expression and elevating our voices.
My writers are writing their stories and are having fun, too. Would you like to join us?
Feel free to PM me for more info. I’d also really love it if you share the Word of the Week with your writing friends too! Thanks and see you next week!
