Where Does Our Courage Go?


As a writer, I’m always jotting down ideas, notes, and quotes that inspire and encourage me. This week, I ran across this quote that I had copied on July 1, 2020 from a blog I follow, Writer Unboxed (highly recommended for you writers). While the words may be directed toward writers, they apply to everyone. I needed this reminder this week. Maybe you do too.

“If you feel helpless in our troubled times, remember this: times change. Our world does not stay the same. It never does. If powerlessness is our premise, then change is our story’s promise. That is the message spoken by our voices. That is our strength. That is where our courage goes.” – agent and writer Donald Maass

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
