so that no one could see too far ahead
Watched this movie over the weekend. What a grand illustration of two very different philosophies of life that - if I had to summarize them in my own words - I suppose I'd use these...
Nothing is worth owning because whatever you own - ends up owning you.
It all has had me thinking....if, on a scale of 1 - 10, his philosophy is a 1 & hers is a 10 - what about me? What's my number?
Hmm ... I guess I'd have to say, I'm a "5" ... forever attempting to achieve that oh so difficult to achieve "perfect balance".
....tho' honestly - I've suppressed a sense of adventure in exchange for - safety, satisfaction & security - & I kinda think I'd like to be a 2 - but that would require exercising some courage to willfully give up some of those things we own that cost us dearly, yet make me feel so safe, satisfied & secure ...
How about you?
Does "your number" reflect both who you are AND who you want to be? - - or are they different?
