Well, I took in the New Year watching a movie I don’t recommend by myself. It was fine. I spent the day with friends and family but decided to go catch a movie by myself. I take this as progress. I never would have been comfortable to do so up till recently.
I love to watch movies. Today I went to see one with my daughter and do recommend it. It is “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. I won’t ruin it but will say it has helped me to understand life better. Now, I must be careful when I have an epiphany as I used to have them all the time when I was delusional. But my dear daughter felt the same way about the movie so I know that it was real.
I will describe the epiphany, though, if I can find the words…
Life has its ups and downs. Others sometimes suffer much and while I cannot always help them, I can be the best person I can be, no matter what they may be. I cannot change people but I can be the positive force in others’ lives to the degree that I am willing to be real. So I will continue to be real. I will continue to be me.
