I am a coward naturally.
At just the sight of my fears, I will run and hide.
I run away from my problems and I make excuses all the time.
My body tenses and I just freeze; my eyes wide with fear.
But last night, I remembered something from a far off memory...
a sentence that someone from a time long ago told me.
To have valiance.
To BE valiant.
To look at the face of fear and smile.
To accept my fears for they are a part of who I am.
I now find myself writing the word valiance everywhere.
In my notebooks, on my hands, my pieces of paper that I have lying around...
just whatever I can get my hands on and write on, I write that one word.
As a reminder.
As a word of encouragement.
A slight push forward when I am stuck.
I THRIVE to be valiant now.
I have this drive to just look at something I fear and overcome it, accept it.
Although there are still times when my fears stop me dead in my tracks-
I do my best to push on.
My favorite word is Valiant.
It's a word that person used to help me in my time of fear and cowardliness.
A word that now is engraved in my heart.
I just hope that in times of fear, the valiance I know I have won't stay in me
but rather, come out and help me onward.
