Have you seen ‘When We First Met?’ it’s a Netflix film.
Not everyone cup of tea, however if you are one who does like it then I guess it shows the sort of person you are, even if you deny it to the world.
I won’t ruin it, however it’s a variation or rather combination of GroundHog Day & The Butterfly Effect, just with less death and Bill Murray, love that man, so many classic films to his name.
So, the concept of repeating a day, quite an interesting one.
To manipulate the past and get the result you desire, yet you couldn’t do it without changing the lives of everyone else, essentially changing who they are, would you be able to do that to fulfil your own desires?
Many would, many wouldn’t, some would see the truth beyond the truth, however which one you are I can’t say, I can only know myself.
We do like the idea of ‘what if’, it helps us justify the place we are in, the choices we made, good, bad or indifferent. It helps us run away from accepting responsibility over the things we don’t want to, or rather can’t accept.
I wonder how many people live out their lives with these little snippets of unfinished business, a lot I’d imagine.
It’s fair to say that some things won’t be resolved in the way we want, or give us the answers we seek, so in that knowledge is it not better to take some time and think, then tie off that loose end with out own conclusion and forget about it forever more.
Why hold on to past habits, hopes or dreams?
“The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.”
If you know that quote, you’ve lived a good life, Rafiki was wise, even with short screen time.
We hold on to much, for the most trivial reasons and these things weigh us down, heavily.
Life is only so long, we only have so many moments that will capture our hearts and leave us yearning for more, the secret to a happy life is to take these when they come, to have the courage to step forward and take the chance.
Many complain of not having a chance, the way I see it is that you get plenty of chances, you just don’t always have plenty of courage to take them as they come.
Throw caution to the wind once in a while, your soul will thank you for it.
Have a pleasant day everyone, and also go watch that film, you’ll enjoy the message held in the screen time, well, if you’re someone like me that is.
