“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up it diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear” ~Rosa Parks~
The human mind is a very powerful tool. It allows us to critically make decision that can greatly impact our life. Each of us has a right to voice our opinion, or take a stand for what is right. By not giving into fear, it opens pathways to freedom. Listen to what you know instead of fear.
Fear should never influence our decision. We discover courage when we are left with no other choice. We all have it inside us, but under ordinary circumstances we have no need for it. Under intense circumstances, we search with in ourselves to find that our determination is unbending and that we do have the nerve necessary to accomplish what we must.
