I have often gleaned my life knowledge from a myriad of sources such as comics, well-intended advice from loved ones, and Hollywood movies. The last source may seem incredulous but I tend to think that good movie screenwriters are shrew observers of our society.
One of my favourite movies is “Stir of Echoes” starring Kevin Bacon, where he played the head of a sandwiched, low-income household. He bemoaned to his screen wife, and said, “I never wanted to be famous. I just never expected to be so... I don't know, ordinary.” That line, delivered with such exasperation, stuck with me for a long time; however, I choose to think otherwise.
I attempt to make little changes to my habits, tweaking them along the way, often being self-reflective on how to improve them. I choose to think it’s better to live a life less ordinary, knowing when to make changes, no matter how minor, in order break out of your self-sabotaging sense of unfulfillment.
Don’t bemoan; try to live a life less ordinary.
