Practicing Courage

When I find myself facing new challenges, I try to remind myself of challenges I have met in the past. Like moving to Northern Michigan and starting a new job as a staff writer. Like covering a fire in rural Manistee County in the snow right after Thanksgiving that year. Like driving from Manistee to Ludington in a whiteout to pick up a package.
