SERIES 1: CHOOSE COURAGE
Character Trait: Courage
I need to have courage in order to stand up for myself and be assertive. It is important to recognize that in order to grow, courage needs to be exercised like a muscle. This will help me identify situations in which I will need to use courage to make the best choices for my life.
