Life takes courage

Courage- the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.

When I look back in my life, there has been so many times that I've had to show courage and I flaunted it like an owner.  It's difficult to find the right words to explain how courage works in me though the one way I can think of it is "fight or flight".  When it boils down to something that is festering in my brain or a feeling I can't shake, then I have to do or say something about it. It literally lifts what feels like a heavy weight off from my shoulders. There's been many times that I've been extremely confident. My confidence tends to lean more towards the work that I do and/or when I'm comfortable. The issue with that is, uncomfortable situations are inevitable. It's part of life. The only way I will ever get beyond that uncomfortable state is by having the courage to make it through. Standing tall and proud, even through my mistakes. I've got to own them and use my mistakes to fix myself. Does anyone feel that they were more competent at a younger age than they are middle aged? Do you feel as though you had more going for you in your 20's than your 40's? I do have a about 6 months before I am 40 so I guess on the upside I could say I still have time to make a come back.
