It was a pretty damned good weekend. Iâ€™ve definitely learned to appreciate getting out of the house when I can and just cutting loose, just the same, thereâ€™s much to be said for sticking close to home and kicking back. Watched â€œEternal Sunshine for The Spotless Mindâ€ again tonight, it is definitely one of those movies you need to watch at least twice. Best way to describe the plot, things go bad, a couple breaks up, the girl has her memory erased, then the guy does, but in the process realizes how much he still loves her. Thereâ€™s a lot to be said for the idea, hell, God knows Iâ€™ve thought of it. Lord knows the past few years might have gone a little smoother if I could have just gouged away my memoriesâ€¦ but along the same lines, whatâ€™s the chance that I would be who I am today without the memories, the experiences, the lessons learned? From the first time I saw it, the movie made me think quite a bit. I havenâ€™t forgotten anything, but Iâ€™ve stopped focusing on the past. Iâ€™ve held on to the lessons, allowed myself to grow from the experience, and have moved on. I donâ€™t think that if given the opportunity, I would erase or change a thing. Things happen, good or bad I must learn and decide exactly what choices I wish to define myself with. All things considered, Iâ€™d rather be defined by my choice to get out and dance, rather than sit in the corner and watch the world pass me by.
Definitely looking forward to next weekendâ€¦ When Iâ€™m out on that floor, for the time I am thereâ€¦ I am truly free.
