As a result of all the great feel-good movies entered in last week’s contest/giveaway I was impelled to plonk myself in front of the TV for a feel-good fest. Lest anyone think I’m becoming something of a slacker, I’ll own up right now. You’re probably right. But I couldn’t resist. The temptation was too great and I succumbed.
One of the movies I watched was dedicated to love in its many forms. Love of food, love of spouses, love of talent, even love of butter. It got me thinking…how many words did the Greeks have for love, was it four? However many, I saw them all play out in this movie and I wanted to incorporate them into my life. Every day.
I wanted to love every moment, to be filled with a heart-felt woosh of love, unexpected in my day, to love the mundane, the extraordinary, the strange. I wanted to practice having more lovely thoughts and feelings than yesterday…to immerse myself in lovely ideas, feast on the lovely and then watch what impact it has in my life.
So it got me wondering, if I could increase lovely thoughts by ten percent, what would happen? Would my life change dramatically? Would I end up being someone entirely different? I had no idea. But I decided hey, why not up the ante…make it twenty percent.
Why push the envelope? What can I say…it’s what I do.
Sounded good till I realized, “it’s probably impossible”, but it is a lovely thought and whilst I may not be able to believe six impossible things before breakfast like the Queen in Alice in Wonderland, maybe I could believe just one…
Sometimes all we need is a little inspiration to get going, so thanks for all those lovely movie ideas. I love you all!
