Bearing Hardship and Uncertainty with Courage
Warrior Princess, I know it’s been a few weeks since I last posted. Life as we know it has been overwhelming for me. I am in the last two terms for school which has been a challenge. I have been working through some health issues as well. I also have been faced with some news about a few of my family's members. So yes, life has been a roller coaster. Though I have wanted to write, I have been too tired emotionally and physically to make it happen. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I still try to post scriptures during the week.
Even with all that my last I class, I just finished, after three revisions to my previous of three papers. 😳 I was reminded of an assignment earlier from this class. We had to take an assessment to see what our ethical lens is, my lens is the Reputation lens. The evaluation really hit the nail on the head of what type of person I am from an ethical stance. There was one statement that really stood out about me. See what you think.
Your classical virtue is Fortitude—bearing hardship and uncertainty with courage. Bam!
As you seek ethical maturity, you embrace fortitude, facing hardship with courage, even if listening to your heart is difficult. Noticing the problems caused by hard-heartedness and self-righteousness, you thoughtfully use the tools of sensibility to show compassion as well as courage.
Bearing hardship and uncertainty with courage. As I look at how Warrior Princess Attitude came about, it was built on four attitudes, being brave, strong, fierce, and courageous. It is an excellent reminder while over the last year of my life, I have had to bear some hardship and uncertainly and continue to walk this journey out, though sometimes I do not feel it, I do it with courage.
I do not want anyone to feel sorry for me; this is my season to walk out; I want to do something for you. I want to encourage you. I want to tell you that you can make it, you are a strong and courageous woman, a fierce warrior princess. I want to speak this truth into your spirit. Do not give up, keep pressing forward, you may need to lay down your weary sword for a moment, but once your strength is restored, pick it up and continue to fight the good fight.
