« Importance of Accessibility in Disaster Plans: Message from Japan's Tsunami | Main | Volunteering: Mutually Beneficial for All »


Wonderful summary! It looks like this Dialogue had some great tips for everyone - not just those of us with challenges. I have often heard others tell me that I'm courageous. I don't think of myself as such. I always respond with the statement that I want to live, really live, Life (with a capital L) and, if I didn't try the things I do, I would not be living. Often being courageous is confused with being foolhardy. These two words are not inclusive. It is possible - actually advisable - to take all necessary precautions when undertaking a risk. However, taking precautions does not mean NOT taking the risk. One of my mottos is: Hope for the best and prepare for the worse.

To quote a famous tag line: Just Do It!

This is an excellent example of not letting fear take over your life. When you get knocked down, get up and get on with it.

Bill, Thank you for your encouragement.
Courage is a great topic. This often implies that there is a foe or great conflict involved. More often than not the foe is our own self doubt. I believe it takes courage to conquer this self doubt. We can en"courage" each other to push ourselves beyond the self doubt and out of our comfort zones. Sometimes it takes only one person to help us believe in ourselves. Let's all try to be that one.
