What is courage?
As defined at Dictionary.com Courage is the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.
The reason I ask “What is courage?” is because I was recently awarded the Courageous Confessionals Blog Award by Kina of Human in Recovery and also Athena Brady. This award is probably the one that has meant the most to me so far because it comes from an idea that Kina had after going through some personal struggles in her own life and she found reading the blogs of others helped her to get past these struggles. She decided to set up the Courageous Confessional Blog Award to celebrate those bloggers who tell their story in an open, honest and often exposed manner in order to heal themselves, aid their personal growth and wellness. I was lucky enough to be nominated by these two fantastic ladies and brilliant bloggers who have inspired me and given me so much support on my journey with this blog.
The first “acceptance & pay it forward” post. Please read it and visit the other courageous folk named.
Due to unforeseen circumstances I do not have internet access at home for the foreseeable future. I will use public access as I am able, as using the phone to post is challenging & difficult for me.
So, it is up to you, dear readers, to copy the badge and write a post awarding the blog & blogger you think deserves the award & notify them. Please leave a comment with the link to your post either here or on the Nominations page.
I will get back to posting as soon as I am able.
Be well my friends,

Heather from Defying My Odds nominated her blog because she is on a crusade to give voice to those who are otherwise considered voiceless statistics: foster children, teen moms, single moms, and victims of abuse. She has worked hard to fight against the destiny the statistics indicated should be hers. At a cost.
