*The ability to do something that frightens one.
I seek courage. These days and really - every day.
The courage to show up. To be at my best self. To not compromise on my values. On my morals. On my stance. To have equal empathy and equal boundaries. To be in community AND in self. The courage to show up is the willingness to be as I am. Nothing more. Nothing less. To be courageous despite all the reasons not to be, which can all be summed down to fear, fear and fear. The courage to laugh despite the pain. To courage to look up when it's so much easier to look down. The courage to be ambitious. The courage to be driven. The courage to be vulnerable. The courage to LOVE. The courage to LOVE. The courage to LOVE.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
