Hello, it's @sarah here for Suze. This weekend, Suze and I had a long FaceTime. I was telling her about all the posts we had about our week reflecting on COURAGE in the 8 Qualities of a Wealthy Woman Course (right here in the APP). As she started to speak, I took notes, feverish notes, because she had another message for us all, below is my best job typing as fast as I could to make sure I captured it all. She is working hard on feeling better each day and I know she is so grateful for all the messages and well wishes you are all sharing -- please keep them coming. "Here is something about courage, you know, whoever thought it would take courage for me to try to get out of bed. Because it takes me courage right now because I know when I try to get out of bed it will be a very painful time for about 20 minutes. So I have to ready myself and you know, KT just has to wait for me until I am ready, until I have enough courage to at least try. And even though I know it is going to hurt, and Sarah, I mean hurt, scream hurt, and it makes me not want to do it because I don’t want to hurt, I have to summon up my courage. You see, I also know if I don’t hurt, I’ll never get better. So today, it has been a little over two weeks now since the surgery, and I gave it everything I had when it was time to get out of bed, and it hurt a little less than yesterday. I was able to spend more time out of bed, which is what I want because I don’t want to go back to something that I know will hurt me. I know if I can just have the courage to sit up and do the exercises and be strong, that tomorrow, it won’t be 20 minutes, it will be 15 and then 10. You know, that courage comes in all different kinds of ways. The main thing I have learned about courage over these past few weeks is that it has to come from within me, period. The fact is, that courage has to come from the belief that you have what it takes to do it. Listen, Sarah, that can only happen when you are ready to do it, no one can dictate the timing for you. When you are ready, and you make the decision to do something, even if it hurts, because you decided for yourself, you will get through the hurt faster. It is not just physical hurt, it is the combination of physical, emotional, and psychological pain. I can see it in KT’s face and I know there is nothing that anyone can do for me, I have to have the courage to push through my pain. Courage is a quality that digs far deeper than just doing something, courage is a quality that translates into a belief in yourself of what is possible when you are finally ready to know what is probable. So what I want to say to the community, is that no matter what you are facing, whether financial or physical, it doesn’t matter, you have to have faith. There will come a moment you will feel it in your heart, and the courage you need will be summoned. That feeling will fill your lungs, limbs, and life with the strength to stand and walk tall and go to where you want to and be who you want to be. So don’t rush it, it is ok if you try and you can’t do it. All I ask for everyone to not give up. That is what have learned these past few days, we have to have the courage to never give up."
