Perhaps luck exsists somewhere between the world of planning, the world of chance, and the peace that comes from knowing that u just cant know it all.
I watched an interesting movie last night. “Little Black Book”, movie came out about 5 years ago but I’ve only heard of it when I decided to randomly pick a movie off the rental shelf a few days ago. Looking at the cover and reading the synopsis, no doubt you’ll know it’s a chick flick but I found it quite entertaining and actually, has a lot of good thoughtful quotes.
I’ll try not to spoil the movie for those who are wanting to watch it, but I’ll mention a quick summary. Stacy, the main character is going through life trying to follow her own plans and expectations, the right guy, the right job, etc. When the mention of an ex girlfriend came up while talking to her boyfriend, her insecurity kicked in and when Derek, the boyfriend, was out of town… she decided to get in touch with his previous girlfriends and do a little research. As the movie would say: “look under the hood before you buy a car”. I’ll leave it at that, but spoiler… as many of you can probably guess, it gets out of hand.
I found it quite entertaining due to the fact that it portrays so well the personality of men and women. In general, women are very curious creatures, detail oriented, and wants to know everything… which unfortunately, we hurt ourselves in the end from knowing too much, worrying, doubting and then starting unnessary fights. We think Omission is betrayal. Just for that reason, men believe that what you don’t know won’t hurt you, ignorance is bliss and if somethings not important, its not nessesary to mention it. “Knowledge is a terrible and marvelous thing.” God definitely has a sense of humor to wire us the way we are.
Male and female differences aside. This movie talks a lot about plans, expectations, luck, changes and life in general. Some of us perhaps leave life to chance, whatever happen happens, go with the flow. I, personally, believe that God’s got all my plans set, whichever way I accidently drive down, He will find a way to bring me back. It makes me ponder whether it’s better to have high expectations and plans for our life or not? Pros and Cons. Eitherway, also be ready to be disappointed when it doesn’t work out the way you had always dreamt it will.
Not sure where I was going with this post,
but here are a few more quotes from the movie that I enjoy reading…..
- John Lennon said Life happens when you’re busy makng other plans
- You know, life’s funny that way. Once you let go of the wheel, you might end up right where you belong.
- I believe we write our own stories and each time we think we know the end… we don’t.
And that’s the end of my jabber post for the day.
