Nebulous Mettle – Our Courage lacking clarity

Courage should be like a bandage,
Sometimes to heal the wounds,
Sometimes to hide the scars.

Now-a-days courage is something which we show when we are in a good situation and suppress it when we are in a weak position! We leave the path of the courage when we need it the most.

In your opinion what is courage? Only warriors have courage? Only we need courage to do Herculean tasks? Don’t we need courage to express what we feel inside our jumbled neurons to a group of people? Don’t we need courage to walk in crowd, where we are considered a failure? Don’t we need courage to give failure a new look, success!?

When we get hurt, we automatically need bandage to heal those wounds. But sometimes bandage is required to hide the scars. Not to make others feel that it is a failure. Just because the miracles always happen under the veil. When you get enough courage, enough power to lift that veil of failure, you will realize that the scar is gone with the power of courage. It was just success disguised in failure. To make you more perfect.

When under pressure, you will feel the weight of your problems, you will feel the weight of words that people speak against you and you will feel the weight of fingers pointing towards you, on the path of success, on the path of doing what you love to do. But stay strong. You are not wrong. It won’t last long. Just sing a song. Have you seen anyone with a fit body without lifting weights? Have you seen a body that didn’t release sweat under that pressure of lifting weights? The courage and persistence to do so regularly gives the body a fit structure. The problems accumulating one over other, the words spoken against you, the fingers pointed against you are exactly those weights. Yes. To make your life fit. To make your courage fit enough to lift them.

So why I am writing about courage? Because we lack clarity in courage. We are nebulous when it comes to mettle. We don’t understand the real meaning of courage. We think courage knocks our door only when we need it. No. Courage comes only when we bring it. Only when we call it. We pray God not to fulfill our wishes, we pray God to give us enough courage to do so.

We need courage in every page of our life. Courage is needed to set your heart free from that cage.
Courage is needed to choose a right path in a maze. Courage is needed to keep your senses calm and passion full of craze.

Courage is not about glowing in brightness. Courage is all about shining in darkness. Yes. Extirpate all the superfluous thoughts about your future. They are baseless. With vision in your eyes, knowledge in your brain, passion in your heart, creativity in your hands, move ahead with courage. You will reach where you are meant to. Darkness in life is not because others are glowing. It is for assessing how much you shine in darkness. Shine brighter. Remove the darkness.

Dark times in our life are just like regular assessment tests for us to know about how much space in our body we have filled with light

Clarity in courage is important for clarity in life. Thanks for reading. Have a good day.

    Very nice post! Asking ourselves questions that challenge our own way of thinking or doing takes courage. To speak about courage is to encourage ourselves and others to have courage. So often we don’t realize that we lack it.
