It is courage that I call on
each morning as I face the day. Courage is what the Lion in the Wizard of Oz
was looking for and what he got was a heart.

It is to my heart I defer
each morning as I face the day.  Heart is
my connection to myself and to others that allows me to proceed with empathy.

It is with empathy that I
turn to face the day. Empathy holds out it’s arms and spreads the warmth
required to support me when I am fearful.

And when I forget, it is fear
that greets me when I face the day. Then I search for empathy and connection to
my heart to fill me with courage to face the day.
