En. Courage. Ment

When you think about the words discouragement, or encouragement, have you ever considered the root of the word?  Courage.  En or Dis, adding or subtracting, to have or need, to be in, or to be without.  Courage still stands at the heart of it.  I haven’t posted in a while.  Life’s circumstances have sidetracked and if I’m being honest, discouraged me.  So I’ve challenged myself to find courage once again to strike out, face new challenges and move forward.  Who do you know that you could loan some courage to today, and thus make a difference in their life as they face a daunting challenge?    Allow me to encourage (see what I did there?) them and have a conversation that moves them from where they are at towards their goals.
