You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery and I promise you something great will come of it." -- Benjamin Mee, We Bought a Zoo
This is a great thought. Twenty seconds. It brings to mind sky diving, bungee jumping, all sorts of giant leaps.
But what's cool about it is that it can also be a beginning. In the movie, Mee's twenty seconds of courage in approaching a beautiful woman begins the story of his marriage. Love is full of acts of bravery -- full of scary questions, first kisses, "I do" and other leaps of faith.
In fact, a lot of life can be decided in twenty seconds. Think about it. Twenty seconds is long enough to make a decision, to state your intentions, to walk away, to take a first step, to wish upon a star, to dream, to create, to hope.
Twenty seconds can be a lifetime.
