Courage.  What is that?

mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty

When I hear the word courage I always think of the song from Frozen that Anna is singing to Elsa.

Please, I know you're in there,
People are asking where you've been
They say "have courage", and I'm trying to
I'm right out here for you, just let me in
We only have each other
It's just you and me
What are we gonna do?
Do you wanna build a Snowman?

I love Frozen.  I think it's because I see myself as Elsa, cursed or blessed with something that you are afraid of because you don't know what it's going to do to you.  And then she runs away and feels free from the pain she'd been dealing with all her life.  Yes, I've thought of running away.  But I come back.  Then, when Anna finds Elsa, Elsa realizes she hasn't changed a bit and she can't run and hide from the pain she was dealing with.  But what happens in the end?  Elsa accepts what she has a blessing and something good and she is able to make people happy.  I want to be an Elsa.  I also need an Anna.  And I have many Annas.  There are lots of snowmen to be built.  I just need to open that door and realize that love is what it takes.  I'm gonna make me an Olaf as well.  Ok, I'll admit he is a big reason I watch Frozen so much.  Everyone needs a laugh. I also love warm hugs.
