I’ve been walking around with a lump in my throat today, reflecting.

You see, “sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave?” Character Kathleen Kelly played by Meg Ryan from the movie, You’ve Got Mail.

I have watched this movie countless times. I love it and so much of it resonates with my very being. From the bouquet of HB pencils Joe Fox considers sending Kathleen, in September, to the remark about business needing to always begin, with being personal, the lines resonate with my very being. The odd thing is, I have never noticed the aforementioned line until my recent re-watching of the movie.

I truly believe that I too, live a valued life but it is small, and is it small because I have not been brave?

I don’t have any answers today, just thoughts, reflections.
