Do you have courage?

Courage is something I believe we are all born with.  It’s a survival instinct embedded deep in our human brains.  Humans are hard-wired to have courage.

Courage is developed, and tested, by using it.  This is part of our survival instinct as well.

On the other hand, I’m not convinced we are hard-wired to have physical strength. We might be.  We might not be.

Yet, physical strength can be developed, same as courage.

Still, most people don’t exercise, because it’s hard.

Same with courage.  Way too many risks.  Way too hard.

Today, however, I am exercising my right to not exercise.  It’s called rest.  What’s different for me is that I’m forcing myself to rest, while others, it’s simply a daily habit.  Too much rest makes us unhealthy.

You buying that?  I am.

We don’t stop doing things because we get old.  We get old because we stop doing things.
