On her deathbed, in the recent Disney film adaptation of Cinderella the heroine’s mother tells her daughter to, “have courage and be kind.” Very straightforwad, simple words to live by.
Having courage is to act despite your fear, to do it any way regardless of your concern. To leap trusting the net will appear. Listening with faith to that voice within who is calling you forward.
Kindness will get you everywhere. One act of kindness affects many. Kindness spreads like wild fire. Again like courage, it starts from within, listening to the whispers coming from inside of you.
When we are courageous and kind, miracles unfold. You may not turn a pumpkin into a carriage or an ordinary country girl into a princess, far more miraculous than that. Love will appear out of no where.
