On Compassion, Courage, and integrity~~~Susie Austin

Have the strength to be compassionate
and the wisdom to be humble.
Courage is the foundation of integrity.
–Keshavan Nair

Compassion, courage, and integrity are three powerful words that if you believe in, and incorporate into your life I believe your life will be full and meaningful. It takes strength to be compassionate, as many times it is easier to be inpatient or walk away.  Compassion is, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, the deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the awareness to relieve it. Are you a compassionate person?

Wisdom to be humble can be a difficult thing as we all want to feel successful but at times pride can get in our way. Being humble can be a healthy experience and will also teach us wisdom. 

Courage is the foundation of integrity takes us back to yesterday and what integrity is. It takes courage to live with values and the first step is finding your personal value system.

Living a full and meaningful life is within all of our grasp, this being a new beginning, a new year look toward the future with hope and excitement as It can be the start of the life of your dreams.
