On the third day of Yule we celebrate Courage. Courage doesn’t live in bygone days facing foes with sword and shield or standing fast against a mythical dragon. Courage starts by living a life consistent with your beliefs and values. Courage is being a Folkish Asatruar in real life with your real name and participating enthusiastically with others of like mind in real community. Scary things become much less frightening when you stand next to stalwart brothers and sisters facing the same challenges. We all have to temper Courage with sound judgement, but, lets think today on ways we can live more authentically and be Courageous in our own lives.
