Here we are again (sort of)

Good morning afternoon or evening. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July yesterday, and celebrated the United States freedom from the British oppression in a grand way! I enjoyed the day off a holiday. This morning I woke up and while awaiting my departure for work read an article on the internet, ( isn’t that were everyone gets their news now?)  which outlined 10 great movies in which the heroes are doomed.  I read the article because I love movies and I also love lists. Doesn’t everyone love these things?

The article does a great job of showing how even after the heroes triumph at the end of the well-known movies there is so much more unanswered and harrowing circumstances to their existence that one can only assume that the heroes are doomed. When you get the chance you should click the link and read the article, it is really good. The good article got me to thinking about the movies, the heroes aftermath, my life and a very cheap paperback I read in middle school. The paperback was titled “after the fireworks”. Now I am not sure what religion you adhere to or practice but I was raised Baptist and despite the older generations staunch objections there are many in the Baptist faith who use charismatic approaches to religious events. The book spoke to what happened after the event was over. When the fireworks burned out, post honey moon. There is a lot of life which is not a chaotic crescendo pitting good and evil. A lot of life in which we as the protagonist can seem doomed, however I am convinced that 90 % of our reality is based on our perspective of that reality and if we can find some way to cultivate a positive perspective on our life we will be just fine.

I am not worried about our protagonists in any of the 10 movies mentioned because they understand that life is  a gift, a journey and they embrace it.

Embrace it

peace
