Bravery says you can do the things that scare you so they don’t scare you anymore. It invites you out of fear, walks you across a wire in the sky, and introduces you to the freedom that has been waiting to embrace you on the other end.
Joy pulls you off the shoreline and cranks up the speed to remind you that you’re not in control. It teaches you to let go of your expectations and raise your hands up in the air instead– safety doesn’t precede joy, surrender does.
Patience points you to your destination on the horizon and tells you to go for it. It stays behind and watches with pride as the distance between you grows. On the journey, you might feel all alone and far away and those feelings will change you. But patience teaches you to love yourself in the loneliness without losing hope for what’s waiting up ahead.
