Lately, I've been finding inspiration to write in all kinds of places (e.g. music, movies, other blogs, etc.). Some of my entries are straight from the heart and others... well, others come from the deep, dark recesses of my mind that I generally try not to acknowledge.
Last night I watched Bruce Almighty for the umpteenth time. But this time it was different. It cleared things up, in my head and my heart.
Since the movie is a few years old, I'm not worried about giving anything away but if you haven't seen it and want to... stop reading here!
Towards the end of the movie, God asks Bruce if he wants Grace back and Bruce says no. His explanation goes along these lines: "What I want is for her to be happy. I want her to find someone who will love her like she's deserved to be loved. I want her to find someone who will see her as I see her now, through your eyes."I want those things for my ex as well as these:
- True, Deep Love
- Laughter from the gut
- Forgiveness from the heart
- Peace of mind and
- Happiness in the soul.
