a small life

After watching the film 'You've Got Mail' yesterday, these words stayed with me:

sometimes i wonder about my life.
i lead a small life;
well, vabuable, but small.
and sometimes i wonder:
'do i do it because i like it,
or because i haven't been brave?'

Sometimes I wonder.

An excellent to think on!

I like my life as it is.

I haven't been brave but I am happy.

I hope that you are too Yiota.

Wonderful words that make you think.
I have had to be very brave to get to this 'small' life. Move to another country, learn a new language, and trust my heart. All of it the best I could have done! I love and adore my 'small' life!!

Oh sometimes I think what some think of as a 'small' life is infact one of the richest and very best kinds of life! Adore this film for such fabulous quotes.

I think it all depends on what you mean by 'brave'. You must surely be very brave to bring a child into the world, to marry or otherwise share your life with someone, to teach and therefore be responsible for shaping so many others, to even go out the door and face the world every day ... we may not all be able to do great things but we call do our small bit with great courage.

Yiota...that is an excellent quote. I think I'd say for most of my life I did what I like because I liked what I do...and never felt I needed to be brave in the doing of it.

Yes, I ask myself the very same question virtually every day ;-)

You have a beautiful blog... where have I been all this time?
