"One who has a why can bear almost any how" - Nietzsche
Finally Finished! "Vision board" item 1 ✅. Now I'm just gonna need @margosha777 to direct this and then I'll be able to check off #2 . 😊
I've been told often that I should make a vision board. Which I find interesting because I've always had vision, the ideas, the dreams etc., but I've never had the courage to follow through. I thought I didn't deserve to have dreams, that I wasn't entitled to be happy in my life. It's a feeling so deeply rooted that it's hard for me to see any another way. About a year ago, someone asked me what happened to make me feel this way and I told them, which I NEVER do. My usual MO...to shrug and say, "I don't know" (which isn't true of course). I realized during this conversation that I had to find a way to confront those feelings, to stop punishing myself and try to figure out a way to move forward...towards healing.
From that conversation, and after a lot of tears and hours spent making a Spotify companion playlist to help me get where I needed to go emotionally (or maybe that was just procrastination-but it did help), this short film was born. I had to confront it all. Relive memories. Admit hard truths. Reconcile regrets. Work though the pain. "Just write it out" I'd tell myself 100x a day. But it was hard. Really hard. .
I'm know I'm not the same person I was when I started writing this. And I'm not really even sure what that means for me. What I do know is that I have an immense gratitude to living in and being able to be more present in my life. What future roads holds, I don't know. But I do feel like my head is turned mostly in the right direction now.
It's been said that "sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory." In some moments, sometimes we can be so careless. We don't realize how a single choice, a reckless act, can impact our or another's entire life. I had to learn the hard way that....you can't always rebuild the bridges you burn.
