Letters to Juliet

“Dear Claire, “What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like – love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. And, Claire, if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet”

Following your heart is one of the most courageous acts one can commit – especially if they have been hurt before. There is always a “what if” that plagues us, leaving us feeling unfinished. What if I wrote this letter? Would he respond? One may never know, and it takes a brave heart to put themselves back in the direct line of path to see if the something they so desperately need feels the same. Letters to Juliet is my absolute favorite movie, and I love the message – “If it was true love then, why wouldn’t it be true love now?”

  1. Awww…you are such a romantic!
    I agree that love takes a type of courage that is very different than the kind of courage in other situations….but it strikes me (in all of your posts) how closely allied to courage is the concept of trust.
    And we need to fix your blogging tech…or make those links live.
