It brought up the theme of defining moments; the way specific moments in your past contributed to the person you are. It's fascinating. The thought that there's that moment in time that quite possibly changed the direction of your life, changed your attitudes and ideals.
I don't quite know when my defining moments were. Brainstorming, I came up with:
1. Hearing my parents tell me the column 2 tick against "computer skills" on my Year 4 report should have been a column 1 tick - my motivation to excel in computing was born that afternoon
2. High School - made me cautious in my relationships
3. One of the many breakups I had back in 2002 - I remember vowing, the following day, that I'd be happy no matter what; that I'd be happy being single because I didn't ever want to depend on a guy for my happiness
Self-discovery is enlightening.
Opportunities... you can only chase them so far. If it ain't meant to be, it won't be - so what's the point in continuing the chase?
I'm over it.
I've been reading He's Just Not That Into You lately. Interesting book... it's not flawless and I didn't really read anything I didn't already know. The only bit that jumped out at me was the part where it said something like: He's making a CHOICE. Everyday he's making a choice to not be with you.
I've naturally extended it to include: One day he could make the choice to be with someone else, do you want to continue choosing him?
It's just ridiculous. Indecisive or not, THAT really makes sense to me. Hi face value.
I was also thinking, Hitch is like a self-help book for men. I guess, since men aren't avid self-help book readers, they had to make a movie. Sorta...
