Your Life : The Movie
Think of life as a movie. You are the writer, producer, composer, director and main star of your film. It is up to you to discover what kind of movie you want to create. Will your movie be a comedy, with biting humor and big laughs? Or maybe your movie is a thriller, or an adventure flick. You defeat the bad guys, rescue the damsel in distress and end up on top.
There are other factors, of course. Sometimes the other actors in your film tend to veer off script. Other times it seems that your comedy is becoming more of tragedy. Worse still, sometimes it can seem that you are looking at your life, and you realize how boring your movie must seem.
Here is the good news: you can change it. You can not always control the things that other people will do, but you can control your actions. If you feel that your life is lacking adventure, go out and find it! No one has ever found adventure sitting at home by themselves.
If you go out into the world, seeking inspiration and adventure, a magical thing starts to happen. The score of your life seems to change from sad melody to uplifting tunes. The actors don’t seem as mundane, and the people you once thought as extras are now the main players in your life, helping you on your way.
Life is something to be experienced. It is your time. This is your life, the only one you have, and you get to choose how to live it. That is a beautiful, sometimes scary, inspiring, wonderful idea.
