Life In A Day… ahhh. Some of you may have seen this documentary and those of you who haven’t, definitely should, but wow. It seemed to come out right when I needed to see it. When I was questioning everything and didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do because I had a few options. There were so many things I was questioning and so many options right there before me. I had a lot to think about and this documentary brought me a lot of clarity in what my path was going to be. It might seem like an unlikely thing for most people to say but really, it’s when it was reaffirmed in me that what I really wanted to do was see the world and experience all of this first hand.
The film is just so beautiful and leave it to me to find something I love and find out later that Ridley Scott had something to do with it, but there we go again. So if you haven’t already pulled it up on your on demand, let me tell you what it is. Simply put, it’s a compilation of videos made by people all over the world on July 24, 2010. It spans everything from the birth and death of people and animals to celebrations, accomplishments, events, etc. What is really amazing is that there are billions of people on this Earth, most of them just stuck in their own little bubble forgetting the bigger picture, and this really takes you out there and pops that bubble and says “LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON!!” There’s so much beauty and sadness all at once. So many things to be exhilarated by and so many others that need to be fixed. So much to see, so much to do… why are we just wasting away on our couches? Money? Money is abundant. You just have to be smart about it. Time? Time is infinite but you have to do the most with each lifetime. Children? Don’t you think kids should see the world too and get that perspective early on? I do! A relationship? I believe our relationships should push us and challenge us, not hold us back and not tie us down.
If you have dreams, goals or just desires, and you’re not following them because of excuses you’ve made for yourself, its time to get out of that rut. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, it doesn’t matter what society tells you that you are obligated with, it doesn’t matter what the rules are! Visualize what you want, know it’s going to happen and then get to work! Five minutes a day towards your goal is more than most people will ever put to theirs so what are YOU waiting for? Do it!
There you have it. I am so tempted to rant for a bit but when I get on those rabbit trails, I think I lose people’s interest. Haha! Either way, this is where I brag and say that I have to write my lawyer in regards to the script contract negotiations and then hit up the producer for the commercials I’m directing later this month Total snob, right?
Well in closing, this video seemed appropriate considering the topic at hand and the documentary mentioned. Now, go meditate!
