BEach Inspiration: BE Courageous 

To be courageous is something that we do to overcomes fear, create a lifestyle change, something we see often see others doing and we are inspired by. Being courageous helps us creates change and make a difference. We often equate courage with bravery and as Nelson Mandela says

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

Have you been faced with an event in your life where you have been courageous? On my recent healing journey

I know now I have been courageous, I have made many lifestyle changes: my alkaline eating, my quantum healing when I made the choice to stop taking drugs and focus on healing myself. the interviews I did  and videos I made in spite of  my “moon face” appearance, and more.

We all have a choice to change and when we step into the change we often let go of fear and we do make a difference firstly to our own life and so often that creates a ripple effect that touches others and makes a difference.

Recently Dona Donato  from Giggling Gorilla Productions  for contacted me to be one of their expert resources and shared the vision she and Michael Kobert had to bring Living The Courage Vibe  Documentary to the world.

The story stirred my soul. The trailer introduces you to the White family who is committed to living a courageous life. They made a choice to  get off what they saw as living on auto pilot, give up everything for an epic adventure to Find it all!  They believe that living courageously, living dreams and being of service to others – can transform lives!

Allison White the 11 year old special needs daughter whose life began in a Russian orphanage says: be brave and face your fears!

Living the Courage Vibe is an inspirational documentary and epic global journey from the suburbs of Portland to the dunes of the mighty Sahara.  In search of the true meaning of life we follow the bold adventures of an extraordinary family.  Presenting powerful interviews from contemporary thought leaders – this film uncovers secrets that awaken and inspire us to come alive to our dreams and transform ourselves and our communities.

  5. I loved your message on courage this week. It is so true that it takes courage to move past those nasty fears that are not even real but we have made them so. When we do, life on the other side is so much grander and beautiful than what it was before. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Hi Suzie,

  7. Change does take courage, but I’ve always found that on the other side of big change (divorce, moving, changing jobs, etc) there are always great benefits that off-set the risks. Free to BE me!

    1. Hi Kimba,
      Yes I am with you on that there is always I believe a gift in big life changes and when we choose to accept that gist to do as toy say become free to be me- love that

  8. Thank you for this beautiful blog about courage. Hiding serves no one, including ourselves. It took me a long time before I had the courage to share my story. I was so afraid of what people would think. Now, I’m creating ripple effects. We all have the opportunity to be change makers!

    1. Hi Erika,
      How delightful, I love that you are making ripples and yes we all do have the opportunity to be change makes and you have encouraged me to get moving faster on my story

  9. Having adopted a child with special needs from Kazakhstan and another child from China who was in a dying room I can relate to this. Those two girls are now my daughters, living happily ever after (I hope!)

    1. Hi Louise,
      Maybe the more we do talk about fear in all it’s many guises the closer we come to experiencing pur joy and freedom along with following out passion/purpose 🙂

  10. There have been very many, it is hard to list!! I am pretty sure the fear thing has stemmed from the time I was younger…low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence and a little more. But that is the old and this is the new….Creating videos for our blog has really been a breakthrough though!

    I was the girl in school who would shrug in the chair when the teacher called on you. It is such a great feeling of freedom to let all that go. When in your heart you feel that you can make a difference through doing what you love and more. Not only that, the connecting with others is wonderful. Great blog post and thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Lisa,
      What beautiful words you have written and I just listened to your video, can see you have lots of stories to tell. Yes doing thought love does change the world and requires courage

  11. Wow, this is so wonderful! Courage (the word) has “heart” at it’s root (I think I heard that) and when I think of that family and how much heart they have courage is exactly the right word!

  12. Love that quote! One of my favorites. Another, not sure who said it, but: “Do it afraid”. Thanks!
