What does joyful courage mean to you? 

Oh, wow. On a personal level I think it means the will to take every day as a fresh chance to have a good day and to be joyful and to not live too much in the past and to just appreciate and have gratitude for what is happening now. Every day takes courage sort of naturally and so to find the joy in that is pretty powerful. On a professional level, I think just believing that something can get better and that things will improve and that in 40 days, we'll be able to celebrate. Yeah, just hope I think this is my priority there.

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

I love that phrase. That concept, those words. To me I'd have to say because we're talking about relationships, it means grounding myself in the courage to look at myself, at my triggers, at my missteps, but to look at myself with joy rather than with judgment. The courage to look at me and the parts of myself that are blooming and the parts of myself that might be dark, but to do so joyfully and lovingly.
