I’m sitting watching through the alternate endings for a film called Godsend, which I watched this afternoon. So many different ways it could go.
I drove home from the supermarket today, listening to the Wreckers and wondering why I keep going back to past things and people when I’m trying to move forward. It was an oddly poignant moment I had in the car before I came in.
And then I thought, happiness isn’t about perfection in relationships or situations.. happiness is about appreciating where you are, what you have, where you can go. People come into your life for a reason – sometimes they’re just a fleeting glimpse, sometimes they stick around. Sometimes they leave and come back again.
There’s a part of me that likes to plan everything – that likes to know exactly what is going to happen and be in control. But there’s also a great part of me that likes to just let things fall in my lap and decide the next step.
Nothing is certain right now, yet so much is in motion. I am learning to appreciate what I have in life – it may not be perfect or what I wish it could be, but I have people and projects that bring me so much. So what now?
There are so many alternate endings. So many different ways it could go.
