In an email from a friend: “Remember our discussion the other day about if you had one wish what would it be? I finally figured out what mine is, and I’m not talking about the old cliches of I’d wish for world peace or a lot of money. I would like one moment of pure courage in my life. One moment or one incident in which I do something absolutely and unquestionably courageous. It wouldn’t have to be big or major either. Something as small as telling someone off who really deserves it. Or taking charge of a situation that would normally frighten me or at least make me hesitate big time. I think my life would be enhanced a lot, as well as my perception of myself, if I knew that even just once I had had the guts to be truly courageous about something that mattered to me.
