We nearly went for ‘man on the ledge’ but EYES WIDE OPEN, she saw the poster behind the ticket master at the counter, “What’s that? It won many awards…”
He had no clue. So we debated if we should watch a movie we’ve not heard of. RISKING THE UNKNOWN. “Let’s have a moving day,” she said, and so we bought the tickets to WAR HORSE.
Compared to the poster for ‘man on the ledge’ where a man is seen sitting on the edge of a building about to jump off, the poster for War Horse promises to be something more… touching. 🙂
We were the first in–no one else was in the cinema. Still curious what this movie was all about, VIV was about to log online on her BB to check out the reviews or synopsis. “Maybe it’s better we don’t know,” I said and she kept her phone away. LIVING THE QUESTION.
As it turns out, in that 2 hours 10-20 minutes, we laughed, we cried, we loved and felt everything the master story teller Steven Spielberg conveyed so beautifully.
It’s the kind of movie I want to watch with my children and grandchildren and great great grandchildren someday (if I do live that long!).
Moral of the story is: What makes an unexpectedly good day? Give & Take + Eyes Wide Open + Risking The Unknown + Living The Question = BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE. ♥
It’s not always like this, but it’s always worth finding out. 😉
Could you allow yourself to ‘check it out’ even when you think there’s nothing good about ‘it’? What are you seeing around you or not seeing? Open your eyes (something I need to do more). Are you willing to take risks and go for the unknown that promises nothing but uncertainty?
Why not live the questions in your life–instead of reading someone’s ‘synopsis’ for your life in the form of astrology /horoscope / predictions? Their ‘reviews’ are seen through their own tainted lenses–it is not the full picture. Why limit God? Why not let Him surprise you? 😉
