One of the things I have learned about courage in the past several years is that it often has to be actively pursued. We have to want to change, and we have to make conscious efforts to do hard things. My hope for 2022 is to spur you (and myself) into living courageously.
On the first and third Sundays of each month, I am going to share something that I have learned about faith and courage as someone who has grown up with generalized anxiety disorder.
I’ve already shared many posts with you all about anxiety, but I want to take this even further this year. I have outlined a writing plan for a series I am calling “Choosing Courage in 2022.” Each post will focus on how we can become more courageous by not only equipping ourselves with tools for growth but also continually reminding ourselves of God’s promises.
I am not a psychologist, nor have I overcome all of my fears. There are things ahead that still terrify me. I don’t believe it would be helpful for me to give any specific medical or psychological guidance. However, I have been working on my mental health for a long time, and I want to share what I have learned and am still learning. More than that, I hope to encourage you on your own journey.
I will be sharing the first post of the Choosing Courage series on March 6th. In that post, I will be sharing the main things I wish I had known about anxiety while I was growing up.
In addition to this series, I will be sharing bi-monthly posts in the Writing Courageously section blog about overcoming the blocks that keep us from writing. These will also continue to include book reviews and writing tips.
If you haven’t already, you can subscribe to receive updates whenever I share new posts so that you don’t miss one!
I can’t wait to share this with you and pray that these posts will be an encouragement for your each month.
