Stoic virtue — Courage

Due to interruptions forgot I was going to consider a Stoic virtue as part of morning meditation.

I’m not a naturally brave person, although I’ve got bolder as I get older.  I find it easiest to deal with situations that make me afraid by using the “What would X have done” technique. I tend to choose my hero to emulate according to the situation. They include my great-great-great-great grandmother Mary Gale, who dressed the wounds of soldiers at a field hospital during the Battle of Waterloo, Aung San Suu Kyi, Janusz Korczak, and my husband who is one of the bravest people I know.
