Love, Hope & More Importantly, Courage

It's such a turn off to me when someone approaches life with the lack of courage. 'Coz hiding behind reasons to act in a less than courageous manner simply means that you're taking the easy way out in life.

My dad used to place his hand on my forehead before I go to sleep and tell me to have 勇气. Back then, I found it lame. Now, I finally understood what he meant and the aspirations he has for me.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear. -Mark Twain

I want to fill my life with love, with hope and more importantly courage. The courage to live a life true to myself and the courage to grab life with both my hands and to simply live. The courage to say "yes" to life and to rise above life's never ending challenges.
