The Source of Great Courage

Posted by Megan on June 27, 2008

I read this today from my daily thought book and the quote says:

“When we feel repsonsible, concerned, and committed, we begin to feel deep emotion and great courage” – 14th Dalai Lama

I am working on my dissertation, often long times of isolation, high stress, and wondering what is the purpose. But I know why I do this, and I know that my learned academic skills have helped me create this blog with Mark and use our experience to help others.   Although his disease and last 8 years have been so unbelievably difficult at times, I have grown so much from all this. And I’ve learned how not to be so selfish, not be so fearful, and how to turn a seemingly negative lot into a positive lot.
