let's do something NOW

I recently got to see the amazing film Breakthrough, and just had to nag every Christian I know to watch it, under the guise of the weekly printspo for y’all. πŸ˜‰


Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”

I love this quote, coming from the movie, but I have to disagree. The first part - spot on. Depression often comes from dwelling from the past; it’s something to learn from and not to be stuck in. But focusing on the future - aside from preparing for it - won’t do much good and may even lead to anxiety. 

How often have we just said, "oh, I'll try this, be this, apologize for this, become like that, reach my goals, JUST DO IT tomorrow." 

And then that lil' fictional tmrw never comes.

YOU GUYS! (random energy blast?) 

I saw the best little Pinterest image I set aside to letter(...omigosh! I said I would letter it tomorrow! Lol, I'm preaching and then in my little speech I realize I'm practicing this myself)

Anyways, it said, "Stop waiting for Friday. {for tomorrow?} For summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now."

PREACH!!! Rn, we are in the present! Rn! So STOP WAITING!!

Let's get off the couch and go DO SOMETHING, anything, now, to further ourselves at reaching our goals. Me? I'm going to, idk, like stop sitting down ranting on my laptop. Maybe use some of this colossal reserve of ENERGY I just tapped into! 

Okay. So wrapping things up.

What we can focus on is the present - all we can control, and all we can act in. Today is ours to win or lose - no, now is ours to win or lose. So if I don’t agree, why did I take all the time to letter it? 

Lol, well first, I'm clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but secondly...

Because I love this movie!! It’s the story of 14-year-old John Smith, who suddenly falls under the ice. Things don’t look good for him, the EMTs saying finding his body is a “recovery, not a rescue.” His mother Joyce (Chrissy Metz) has complete faith that he will walk out of the hospital fully capable and alive - what will happen? 😱😱😱 Oh, I’m terrible at writing movie reviews. πŸ˜‚

Just watch it! 

It’s so easy to get sucked into all of this negativity about how there’s so much muck and filth in the entertainment world, but this restored my faith in movies. I mean, this is the first movie in a while I actually liked because of the AMAZING STORY and not because the young male actor was like πŸ˜πŸ˜.

I’m so sorry I missed posting last week - life happens. Ty for just stopping by! 

Have a great Friday. Alright. Excuse me as I go on, idk, a sprint.
