October is the Choose Love Courage Month. Take our Courage Challenges of fun activities to help boost your courage that you can find in our Choose Love Courage Month toolkit. First learn and share the definition of courage and discuss examples of every day courage with your family and friends.
Courage is the willingness and ability to work through obstacles despite feeling embarrassment, fear, reluctance, or uncertainty.
Courage involves making positive choices even if they may be difficult. It takes courage to express our feelings, make ethical choices, tell the truth, admit mistakes, and to be kind. This is especially true when others are not leading by example.
It’s also important to know the benefits of courage which include improved self-esteem, self-awareness and the ability to express your feelings. It can also make you less stressed and have less anxiety.
Together, let’s spread love this month with courage.
