One of my favorite (so called) reality shows have for many years been NBC's "The Biggest Loser". As someone who's had weight and self worth issues almost her entire life, it's been inspiring to me to travel on this journey with these amazing and inspiring people. A new season just started, and the toughest trainer is back... Gillian (just the name sends a shiver down my spine...)
As I am watching the first episode of the new season, a thought occurs to me... I could never do this, because I will ALWAYS take the least painful, easiest, non emotional way out of a situation... These people are truly amazing to stick with it... I'd never last a day!!!! So as I contemplate how I react to situations, and ponder on why [that] is and, if I want to/how to change it... I'll just give a shout-out to those people who stare challenge in the face and strive on... You are my hero's!!!!

Now when it comes down to courage, I know that it is a many layered "onion" (lol) and it comes out for people in different ways, at different times and in different situations... and I'm sure I can philosophize on that subject many many times and come to a variety of answers... and I'm sure cleverer people than me have... but for this moment in time... I had a tiny light-bulb-moment...
