Sometimes you hear or read a phrase that resonates with you and gets you thinking. That’s what happened when I heard the phrase “full of courage and foolishness.” It could apply to so many things. This is where it led me.
Full of Courage and Foolishness
Listeners have asked where the ideas come from, for Consider This stories. Often, they are seeded by something a listener or reader has said in a comment to a previous story. I start thinking about the subject and out comes a radio show!
So today, I was thinking, “What kind of person has the audacity to give advice or guidance like this?” Then I read something where a writer was described as “someone full of courage and foolishness.” I thought – how utterly accurate.
Those are the two emotions that battle each other, every time a new Consider This show is written. What if my thoughts on the subject are foolish, and everyone disagrees? But then I stumble forward with great courage and record my thoughts anyway, and you don’t seem to shy away from them.
That’s all it takes to get all wound up and start again on another subject on which to be full of courage or foolishness.
Our stories have been called “down-to-earth descriptions of daily challenges and victories we each regularly encounter.” Today, someone wrote, “The anecdotes and lessons are relatable to me, so I find them motivational.”
Well, that’s why we keep broadcasting and filling up our website with thoughts and smiles and love and joy, and wonder. All we ask you to do is – Consider This.
