Listening to the soundtrack of ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. Amazing story, amazing characters; honest emotions thrown up all over the place and everywhere.
I’m wondering now, how it would feel like to do something I really liked, for a change. People have always expected me to be certain things. Be. How simple, how deceptively simple. The truth is, you can’t be someone you’re not, no matter how well you try.
There are days that have been rough. It’s days like these when I realise: Sod it, don’t let’s sweat the small stuff. You know, shake hands. The Bible says: To love one another from the heart. What does that mean? It means, to love your brother/sister truly, no pretensions; don’t let skin stuff mess with the heart stuff, and let’s be looking out for one another. The Bible also says:
“Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work;
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up!
But pity the man who falls
and who has no one to help him up!
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But who can keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
Two can defend themselves
A cord of three strands is not easily broken”.
[Ecclesiastes 14:9-12, NIV]
I’m sitting here, and letting the music sink in my ears. The only films I truly like are the most genuine ones I’ve ever seen, heard and felt. I could almost touch the scenes. I believe real life is like that, too.
