Stronger than glass

So, little Amelie, your bones aren’t made of glass. You can take life’s knocks. If you let this chance go by, eventually your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So…go and get him, for pete’s sake!

I know many of you also just love the film, Amelie. It really must be one of the most wonderful films ever made. Well, you know how you can add a personal quote on Facebook? Mine has always been the quote above. It's from when that eccentric Raymond encourages Amelie to go after Nino at the end of the movie. Life is so short and we really have so little time to live the lives we dream of but I think we so often feel like Amelie. Just terrified of chasing after our dreams and making our feelings known for fear of failing or being rejected. But Raymond is so right. Our bones aren't made of glass and we can survive life's knocks even if they hurt like hell sometimes. Today I needed to be reminded of that again. I hope they're encouraging words to one of you too perhaps. x

And while we're dipping into the pool of emo, we may as well listen to the theme track from the movie...that epic piano piece. Well, be gentle Monday. Let’s start with a cuppa tea. I'm making.
