Courage and clarity – can we have one without the other?
Courage: “the ability to do something that frightens one”
It’s not always the big things: sometimes it’s taking one more step towards fear. Sometimes it’s saying no when everybody expects yes. Sometimes it’s the acceptance of who you are and who you are not.
Clarity: “the quality of being coherent or intelligent; transparent or pure”
Bringing these qualities to our life is not always an easy choice. Very often one needs to be brave to be able to be transparent or pure.
If you have courage, it’ll bring clarity – you’ll see what life really is and not what you want it to be. On the other hand, if you have clarity, you’ll be courageous enough to be who you are – you won’t need unnecessary approvals.
It applies to travel, too: do your own thing. Stay by the pool if it makes you happy, or rent a car if you prefer travelling on your own terms. Be stern with your travel time – you’re not there to make your friend (or even spouse) happy. Have the clarity to know what you need, and the courage to follow it.
Best of luck!
