Take It In Both Hands

CourageWhen we find ourselves in a difficult situation, there are two choices, chicken out, turn and run, or take our courage in both hands and face the challenge. The central Buddhist principles of Wisdom, Courage and Compassion lead us to take the latter option.

So tonight, faced with a difficult situation not of my own making, I decided to face it, to turn the poison into medicine. To be fair, I had been told not to get involved, but knowing that the others involved were a little less experienced than me, I ignored the advice.

And the courage paid off. The problem was at least reduced, if not completely solved. I have no idea what the final outcome will be, but at least I feel that I gave my all and that I didn’t walk away. Tomorrow we can take a more measured look at the cause, and at how we can solve the problem once and for all.
