It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie. A good one. A new one. You know how a really good movie can give you a new lease on life? Can alter your perspective? Make the world seem bigger, better, and brighter? I have missed that feeling that a good movie can give you.
I’m not much of a movie person, but it still strikes me from time to time. I leave the movies feeling magical, like anything could be possible, and it feels like it is.
It could be because I don’t watch movies that often, but it could be a rare quality that some movies possess. Maybe it’s one of those simple pleasures I’ve missed for awhile.
I’ve been hung up on making choices, and trying to understand what I’m “really” feeling about a situation, and the reason for my feelings. There’s a reason for it—I want to make sure I make the right decisions, that I choose happiness for myself above all else, that I move forward. Sometimes you’re afraid of relaxing too much and letting things be, because not all problems fix themselves. But you can also miss out on being in the moment.
You can miss out on feeling like “damn, life is beautiful” like I did tonight. Regardless of the big decisions there are to make, the big things hanging over me, all I can do is be here right now. A watched pot never boils, and the answers don’t come any quicker when I think about how confused I am. What I can do is have faith that in time, everything will come to light. I can only feel how I do—and I know it when I do.
So why not appreciate the beauty of the process?
