"I think positive emotion trumps negative emotion every time."
This is one of my favorite quotes of the movie Inception. During the past few days I have really begun some deep reflection. About myself, about my life, about those close to me.
Within the Fast I feel as though I am dreaming. There is no way that everything I see today was here yesterday. But in fact, not only was it here, it was screaming to be seen. My relationships are very much a product of what I put into them. If I am lax within a relationship...the relationship in turn is lax. However, the more I reach for a relationship to be active and engaging, the more it is.
Throughout my life (including yesterday) people have told me I need to write things down on paper before I type them on the computer (yes, I'm looking at you Mom). This is also true for things I say (I should think before I speak). Unfortunately I have never learned these lessons.
I believe the passion that I write with and the passion I speak with happens within the first moment.
People may not like what they read or hear, but they can understand the passion that I have for the topic. This is not to say I am right about everything (contrary to popular belief), as I can be passionate and very, very wrong.
I love what has happened to me, and continues to happen to me. I am starting to trust in the change, and with that comes an incredible freedom.
My positive emotions are trumping my negative emotions, and creating a different way to see the world. I'm not dreaming, it really is getting better.
