Just finished watching Life as a house. Not sure why it took me so long to see. It came highly recommended by someone I respect very much in terms of movies. So now I'm doing the whole sad post movie thing.
It was good. I enjoyed it. But there was one like that rang... truer isn't the word... it just rang more.
"How do you turn yourself into something you're not?"
And I thought, for a while, that it applied to me. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that it DOESN'T. I've already turned myself into something I wasn't. Or just realized something that was there all along. But either way, that part is done for me.
I talk alot (especially here... actually mostly here) about the future. My future, and what I want to see happen with it. Where I want it to take me in the short term. I've set a goal, and I hope to realize it. And I keep talking about it.
I keep talking, because if I'm quiet, it's only my dream. It's only my hope. But when I share it, it becomes part of all of YOUR dreams as well. It becomes part of the future that you hope will come to pass.
It's easy to let yourself down. To give up on your own dreams. To say you set your goals too high and settle for something less. Not so much when the dreams also belong to the people you love.
Hold me to my dreams, okay?
Don't let me let me down.
