Courage requires a heart

Why does everything move faster when you get older?

How much longer does the journey take for one who does not know the way?

‘Warning! Caution can be hazardous’

‘If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change,’ says the count in Di Lampedusa’s

The Leopard. There is a willingness to embrace change. Certainty about our choices only comes when we act on them. Nothing is certain before the fact. Our minds can contemplate our options endlessly, but only emotion can give us the power of choice. (Who has followed a checklist in choosing a life partner?) Courage demands a heart. Just do it. A matter of confidence, of self-confidence. We’ll never know until we do it. And certainty? Knowing for sure? Well, that’s a different matter.
