Bravery is a Gathering Force

Lisbeth Essays, Life

Bravery is a gathering force.

It doesn’t come without much summoning. It won’t knock on your door, and plop down at your kitchen table with a hearty smile and a sword unsheathed — fresh and eager for the fight.

Bravery accumulates in the small moments, like a barrel you left in the backyard to gather rain drops. It seems empty, empty, empty … until it is full and must be dealt with.

Bravery’s light can’t be seen until your world grows dark.

But when that shadow covers your sun, take heart. What you invested was not lost. Not lost.

It is here. And the light will lead you home.
