Thriving Thursdays: Fear or Courage? (Guest Post by Teagan Riordain Geneviene)

Hi, I’m Teagan Geneviene.  Today I’m doing a guest post for our wonderful Story Telling Ape.  I’m here to encourage you to thrive.

Today I’m not thinking about how daring the feat was.  Nor am I wondering how dangerous the situation was.  I’m not even considering what extraordinary valor may have been involved.

How brave is someone when they do something they don’t fear?  Are they braver than the person who trembles in terror? 

Fear can hold us back.  But to overcome fear is to thrive.  If you see a person, daunted by distress, who dives into the fray despite their dread — then you have witnessed courage.

Courage is being scared to death — and saddling up anyway…  John Wayne


Wishing you a thriving Thursday.

Mega hugs,

  1. Teagan, I hope your cold has taken the back door exit and you are feeling better. Let’s just say I’ve saddled up the horse and I’m ready to get on it. Scary, but exciting too! Thank you Chris for hosting our lovely lady who always has wonderful words of wisdom to share.

  2. Such wonderful sentiments to see here from our Teagan. And the use of the word valor jumped out at me. It occurs to me I don’t see it used often, and it’s SUCH a good word! Slainte to Teagan and The Ape ! Long may you thrive.

    • Claire, that can be our “word of the day” — Valor. Hopefully it won’t become a thing of the past. I think (using it) comes from when I was a very little girl — loving the Prince Valiant comic strip. LOL. Chalk it up to strange early influences. Thanks for visiting. Have a thriving Thursday! Hugs.
