Sometimes I watch a movie where after it ends it sits on me, like a heavy thought just waiting to be shared. However, I don’t have anyone around me to share that thought with, so here I am with you, my fellow readers.
This here (as seen from the title) is a movie called “Say When“. It’s a romantic comedy good enough for a Sunday evening. Starring Keira Knightley and Chloe Grace Moretz, this movie follows a woman who for so long have let the world decide for her since her senior prom that when her school sweetheart decides to finally pop the question, she decides to run away for a week and stay with a sixteen year old girl who became her friend after buying her and her friend’s some alcohol. Yes, a lady in her late twenties had a sleep over with a sixteen year old girl. It does sound weird, but I don’t want to ruin the film, so I’ll let you see it for yourself.
The main reason for me talking about this film, is because I’m at a stage where the theme of it all was too relatable that I just had to talk about it. In life, we reach a point where we really have to make some hard choices in life, whether it be breaking off a very toxic relationship, finding your purpose in the world or even just to think of what to do that could be really good for you. Growing up it was always stressed to have some sort of “plan”. What will you be doing in five years time Mr.T? And yes, you may have a plan. But as times change, you realise that you too change with it. The version of you now no longer recognises the version of you then, so then the next question is asked, What do I do next?
It is always unknown.
I guess it’s always good to have a plan, but if you’re someone like me, then having a plan at all might not be your things. Sometimes you just have to go with it. Sometimes it’s not the destination that matters, but the journey. Sometimes it’s tasting all the candy in the candy shop to realise which is your favourite. But this requires patience. It may take a long time for some or it might happen just like that *snaps fingers*, either way, exploring options to find something suited for you is something you might have to consider. I don’t want to be a cliche and say ‘do what makes you happy’, but sometimes, that’s just what you have to consider. What is good for me? What can make ME better? These are the question you have to ask yourself to really find yourself. You may have tried a lot of things and still they’re not working out, well guess what? That just means you’re getting closer to what you’re suppose to be doing. Like box of pick ‘n’ mix, where you eat your way through the nasty candies to finally get to the bottom and see your favourite candy waiting for you to embrace them.
They say life is short, but you are given enough time to see your purpose in this world. Take your time to find it, it’s the only time where being selfish is acceptable in my eyes. Then once you’ve find it, live it to your fullest. Your time will come my friend! Your time will come. So be patient, go explore and experiment, and when it’s all done hi5 yourself when you’ve reached your own destination.
