I often find that my favorite acts of bravery don’t have much enthusiasm. Explains a lot about me, really.

    “a little enthusiasm, but lots of heart” – I had to laugh at this because every time I go hiking or biking with my daughters (sub 10-years old) this is pretty much how they put into context their efforts. Their enthusiasm diminishes 10% every 5 minutes, but it can be replenished with a snack so long as we don’t hit 0%. Their heart can stay at 100% with continued praise and appreciation.

    A vast majority of the brave actions taken by human beings throughout history fall into the category of people screaming “Oh gods, I wish I didn’t have to do this, I’m crapping myself, and would rather be ANYWHERE else in the world right now!”

    And then doing it anyway.
