My blogs have been to heavy lately. I needed something light, something fun to blog about. Something that didn’t require to much thinking. I should know better then to ever assume I could do something that,”didn’t require thinking”. I over-analyze & over-think EVERYTHING.
This blog is no different.
Work days can be long, especially a slow-winter day. When you work with some smart-asses & most tend to think “outside the box”…you can come up with some interesting ways to get through a shift. The question, “if you could describe your love life/sex life using only movie titles” was the question posed via email, text & through the work place ranks. The guys, of course, bragged about, “ I am Legend, Anaconda, The Bone Collector”…while the girls were more subdued with, “Toy Story, Titanic, The Quick & the Dead”. I, as only I can do, read the text in a hurry, didn’t really grasp what they were going for & responded with “Must Love Dogs”. Major Fail!
I re-correcting & went with “50 First Dates” (aside from the fact that its one of my favorite movies) it also seems to describe how I never seem to get beyond the first few days before I bail (or they do) out.
This is the background story that led to today’s blog:
For me, this required some thought. While “Forest Gump” was the first movie that came to mind. Since its only supposed to be based on a Movie Title, that wouldn’t work. Of course, “Dumb & Dumber” was a top contender, followed by “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” & “A Goofy Movie” (I’ve got to have some kind of token 80’s Animated Disney movie).
“Flight Plan” was also on the list, since I rarely do anything or make any decision without analyzing every possible scenario that could possibly happen.
A friend suggested “Little Miss Sunshine”, which I liked, but didn’t think it described my overall life.
After some list-making (because that’s what I do!) & some narrowing down. I finally decided on “Bounce”. To me, I think that no matter what life has thrown at me, either through my fault or not; I keep getting up, keep moving forward. I may be knocked out for awhile, but eventually I pull through & get to the next challenge. Bounce…yep, Bounce.
Because life is about bouncing; not staying down but moving forward. And when you look back on what knocked you down, oftentimes, its opened the door for something great. Its “bounced” you into something better!!!!
I like it!
