new start, perhaps.

February 25, 2009

Weird how I ran into people I that would never imagine running into.  Perhaps, this starts all over again?  A continuation of a carefree life?  Watched “He’s Just Not That Into You” couples days ago, and as expected, the book was a lot more meaningful.  However, there was this one thought that got me thinking…

“Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe.. it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future.  Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.” 

This movie surely shifted my paradigm and values regarding relationships, whether it’s a good thing or not, perhaps it’s reality.

I want to be “the exception” too
