Dare- have the courage to do something. Defy or challenge (someone) to do something
One of the most difficult things to do in life is to dare to do something you are not sure that you can accomplish. You may think that you can do it. You may dream that you can do it. You will never know for certain until you take the initiative and dare to try. There are challenges you face in every area of your life. It takes a special courage to face them and see where you stand. How much greatness has been left unshared because someone was afraid to try? Afraid of failing? Afraid of what people will think?

When you look at the majority of people, they have put their real goals and dreams aside to accept living in a rut of consistency and security that life provides. Safe is the choice, but we still have dreams that we are not acting on. Today I am looking to act and am encouraging you to come with me.

There are many times in life when you have to fight to be a man, today was not one of those days. As I was minding my own business, thinking about enjoying the warm weather and getting some work done. I was interrupted by the gentle clucking of chickens outside. The place where I am fortunate enough to work has their own chickens, that they do get their own eggs from, and so they serve a purpose. I have seen them almost daily, and my interactions with them have until today been of the most perfunctory in nature. Read more...(602 words, 10 images, estimated 2:24 mins reading time)
