Tips for Thriving in your Marriage
|Quote of the Week
“It’s like I tell my 8-year-old son, Sam: “You don’t have to be brilliant at everything. You just have to have the courage to put yourself in the line of fire.”
- Emily Mortimer, actress
Courage and Trying Differently
Last week I featured a quote about elders looking back at their lives and how they might live them differently in a “do over.” One of their suggestions was “be more courageous.” Emily Mortimer gives this idea more flesh – you don’t have to succeed at everything…but without the courage to put yourself on the line you won’t live life to its fullest.
Not being brilliant at something, or even failing, is the inevitable result of having the courage to stretch yourself and try the new or uncomfortable…and therefore should be celebrated.
