"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face...we must do that which we think we cannot."
~Eleanor Roosevelt


 
 
There is power in summonsing courage to look fear in the face
There is self-confidence to be won by finishing a hard run race
 
Courage and self-confidence are entwined with each other
Each one draws substance and strength from the other
 
The successful completion of a challenge builds confidence
And just knowing you tried makes it a worthwhile experience
 
With each success one gains more courage to pursue
Even greater accomplishments and greater achievements to do
 
So know with each challenge that may come before you
There comes the chance to expand your mind to attempt something new
 
Dogwoods and Daffodils
