An & Ria’s #First flight is a story of courage. It would be easy to say that An is the more courageous one because she faces the unknown with laughter while Ria’s knuckles grow white and her stomach churns. And of course I want to be more like An for the laughing. Of course.
I have decided that both of these women teach me something about courage that I want to learn. That I need to learn.
An shows me that a hopeful abandonment lets me face the unknown with the kind of courage that gives me the grace to generously share my courage with others.
Ria shows me that even when my emotions could convince me to stay under the covers or behind the door, I can speak truth into the darkness and walk toward the unknown.
So, the her I want to be more like is really them.
