Don’t judge a movie by the title….
“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of which is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.”– Don Juan deMarco
Deena and I went to see Crazy, Stupid Love the other day. The title made me roll me eyes a little. But what is not to love about most anything Steve Carell does so we grapped the 65 bus and headed to the theater.
Here is a quick run down of my “take away” from the movie.
1. Clothes do not the man make but sure makes them “appear” all put together on the outside. It can even boost ones confidence…even if they still feel “dorky” at heart.
2. Who you “really” are eventually always catches up with you…even through all the fluff and “Rico Suave” attitude.
3. We are all so incredibly fragile human beings…but also have the strength to move the impossible.
4. Anything of value and honor is worth fighting for.
5. Puppy love is just as rich and deep to a kid as it is to an adult.
6. Kids are much wiser then adults sometimes. They see life without all the baggage adult have.
7. Alcohol never is the answer to courage or much else.
8. A “one night stand” has no staying power…it lasts one night and you are left standing alone.
9. It is the “little things” (acts of kindness) in life that make the biggest impact.
10. Lies and half-truths come back to bite you in the ass and hurts many along the way.
11. Sometimes moving on ends up right back where you started.
12. Be who you are always…not who you think others want you to be.
13. Loving and imperfect parents are a gift to their kids.
14. Laughter and a warm embrace makes life so rich…it’s priceless.
15. Sometimes the friends you thought had your back disappear when things get ugly.
16. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
17. We want what we can’t have but when we get it we run scared in the other direction.
18. Never take your spouse for granted.
19. I’m a sucker for a “happy ending” and that will never change.
20. A sense of humor, standing firm and holding close that which is dear, an apology, and good music heals the heart and soul…in real life and in the movies.
Have a great weekend…go love up on those you hold close to your heart. Peace out.
