Movies, and more Movies
Lately I try watching a couple movies a week to help expand my mind into a different level of thinking. I start to see everything in a different light as to why we are put on this earth and why we are living out the lives we so direly long for. Watching a couple movies sounds like fun and games when you think of a movie at its face value. I took a psychology course last month and learned so much more about who I am as an individual. In taking the class, I learned more about how to watch a movie when trying to get a deeper sense of meaning out of my own life. I started off with watching the movie, Crash (2004), then went on to watching a series of movies including: In Time, Drive, Black Swan, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and even Stay. These movies made me think about the world around me and how I truly viewed it. Unfortunately, I started becoming opinionated to everything as well. A step up, definitely! This is a much better way to go about life instead of having people walk all over me because I lack direction and definition to back it up.
Words of Hope
Let me continue with a few words of hope to everyone who reads these random blog posts of mine.
Realize that time is on your side if you so desire. You decide what you want out of each day and live it out. Set goals for the future about where you want to be, but turn that around and live one day at a time knowing that you will reach your goal. We tend to want things to happen right now with how our society works, but if you can be patient and cultivate the days needed to get what you want, you will be much happier.
You must embrace that you are not a child anymore and you have to make adult decisions eventually. Your parents aren’t going to be around forever, and you know what you must do so you can be independent. It’s a rough world out here, and you shouldn’t try living in the past, that is what depresses some people. Don’t live in the future, that is what makes people depressed from hope getting crushed. Instead, live in our ever-evolving future as we take on each day that could be our last. Live today as though you would die without regret. Make a strong impact on those around you so you aren’t alone. You have the choice to be happy with what you have instead of trying to have what you can’t be happy with. – Joshua Long
No matter what you do or who do it with, your impact on the world comes from how you want the world to remember you as a human. Do not sit in the past and think about what you could have done to change the way life is. Instead, look towards the future and live in the ever-evolving future we call the present.
