"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."
Think back on your life at a time when you did something that took real courage - leaving home, moving to a new place, taking a challenging job, standing up for others, going off on a 'mission' where you were warned of danger, taking a walk in the woods where bears have been spotted..... What is it that makes us brave sometimes and sitting behind locked doors in a 'safe' cocoon at other times? I think Ms. Nin had it right - life itself requires courage to be fully lived. Have a little faith and step outside your boundaries just a tad.....and I'll try to do the same! - Beth Almond Ford
