The most courageous acts are performed in solitude, without audience, without acknowledgement.
My most profoundly heroic moments are those moments when I'm called upon to face myself, in all honesty - to accept the truth of my humanity, limitations, fears, errors, ignorance and blemishes - then forgive this truth and rise up to another day.
This is only between me and my Self. There is no other there when I face the void that lives between my hopes about who I am, and my own, blessed, imperfection.
The choice I make at that moment defines me, creates me. The courage to accept my self, to have compassion for what I am not, and the heart to choose better, this is God work.
