Two Brave Ladies

This morning I watched this clip and I cried like a baby pretty much all the way through it.  Not because, as the author put it on the original site, that we take things for granted. That's true, but it's not what "got to me".

What got to me were two things specifically:

  • How differently people respond and prepare for something new, and
  • How much of their lives they missed out on



 Obviously I don't mean taking stupid risks or chances, but rather choosing to be safe in what we know, rather than stepping out, even in small ways, to experience something new.

It's a heartwarming and fun clip - but it's also deeply reflective.

  1. Thanks for this .... It brought a tear to my eyes too
    It's a great, and for me, timely reminder that we simply cannot hold back due to a fear of what may or may not happen!
    Thanks
    Have a blessed Easter :-)

    1. Those happy faces - I almost felt as though I was with them.
      I hope when I am their age I can laugh like that lady - right from her toes!
