Living boldly

Posted by in letters to the boys

A friend started reading “A Lion Among Men,” which is part of a series of books about the World of Oz.  The book had one quote in the beginning that he chose to share with me and I love it.  It resonates with the way I want to live in this next chapter of my life.

“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves as well. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen accidents, meetings and material assistance that no one could have dreamed would come their way. Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
