Recently I have finished watching a series called Band of Brothers. If you haven’t watched it I highly recommend it. Basically it is about World War II and the soldiers who fought there. We see the battles, the bravery, the fear, the loneliness, and of course the bond that is built with these young men.
I truly believe that we are soldiers in this life. Fighting, battling, and trying to find meaning with our short lives. All of us fight demons of some sort and all of us are tired and grouchy and some days we show fear and other times we are brave.
I suppose what we are fighting for is what gives us purpose, hope and a legacy. I have been thinking a lot about what it is I am fighting for. If only I can defeat these demons of fear and fatigue. But even when I feel that way, I must fight. Just like the soldiers who fought in World War II.
Smile, laugh, be kind, and love others- even when I am full of fear and fatigue. That is bravery in my book.
