All of my life I have watched movies and devoured books, and then, tried to apply their wisdom to my own life, often by journaling about them. I'd plan this epic reinvention for myself, and be puzzled when it didn't take.
In hindsight, I realize that the reason is that it takes more than just a decision to let go of thinking and feeling habits you have had for a long time. That's what we see tripping up our beloved characters again and again.
Usually, we have to let go of long-held beliefs that turn out not to be true, and of the feelings, still alive and well in our hearts and our bodies, long after the experiences that inspired them.
But the first step is always to respond to insight with intention. So it still make sense to watch, read and mine for wisdom.
That is what I will be doing this month for Blogmas and I will share my thoughts with you.
Now, over to you! Have you ever watched a movie or read a book that affected you so profoundly that it inspired you to change your life?
See you tomorrow!
