I was watching one of my favorite movies during lunch today, You’ve Got Mail. I love Meg Ryans character and her struggle with her life. In one scene she has a soliloquy on how she lives a “Small Life” that I love. I immediately connected with it.
I do the same. It makes you question if you are “living small” because you are used to it or because you are uncomfortable pushing farther. I am trying to push my writing further and eventually push my career and life farther but it is a very slow haul. It is had to distinguish between normal life and procrastination.
