Courageous

Courageous is dreaming even when it seems dark. Courageous is knowing there is potential for better despite the "obvious". Courageous is the conviction of happiness when all the signs point to darkness. It is that precious nugget of courage, that permission to dream, that pushes families forward, individuals forward, businesses forward, movements forward, whole countries forward. 
 
There is an incredible power in dreaming, in envisioning something enormously beautiful, a potential to put your hopes in. Without dreams we would never evolve and grow.
