The sun sets on another day…
As sun set the skies became fiery for a moment, then dark and full of blue violet shards. The night was here, but the promise of a new morning filled the crisp night air.
I have been reading a lot, never too much but a just right amount. I think a lot about wisdom, and how little I know and a quote came up that said exactly that defining wisdom as: “humility, accepting that we know very little or nothing at all“. I am there. Each day I learn something new, and sometimes I am reminded of things I knew but set aside.
This led me down a path towards courage as both are closely interwoven and a definition in a recent book of: ” is knowing it is better to make a mistake with full force of your being than to carefully avoid mistakes with a trembling spirit.”
How are they linked? Well, I feel strongly that one needs courage to embrace the idea of wisdom. In that, we fully need to understand our own faults in order to put the full force of who we are to strive against them. How many times have we been sure we were right only to find our foundations were not so good? I have written about this many times and will not belabor the point. All I can say, is that to have wisdom is to embrace the purest ideas of courage, and without courage, there can be no wisdom, as you must embrace your ability to be vulnerable.
So as the sun sets on another day, I hope you find the courage to be wise, and the wisdom to have courage. Life is a series of positive amazing events, and with courage and wisdom, think of the difference we can make. Find your way to the best life you can, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live on…
