Even when we aren't having to accommodate fools, we are having to accommodate a tonne of other life bullshit that gets in our paths, trips us up and screws with our agendas and and all of this cannot be avoided no matter how much micro managing we do; unless of course you're dead.
I can only hope that when I am dead I no longer need to have my game face on or plan things out, hopefully I can just sit back and piss myself laughing at everyone else that is still scrambling around pretending to know what's going on.
Truth is, we really don't know whats going on.
We really don't.
Not a fucking clue...well maybe a tiny clue, but generally we know jack shit.
The other day I was on Pinterest and I noticed that a fellow pinner had placed under her name (where one would normally place something philosophical or informative) the statement - I have no idea what I am doing. And I thought, amen sister, me either, but I am really good at pretending I do, but generally I'm just hoping for the best.
I really appreciated this woman's honesty because most of us are all so busy being in control and looking like we've got our shit together that we would never admit that we have no idea what we're doing. I can admit it though, and it actually feels really good to say it.
Saying I have no idea what I am doing isn't a malicious or nasty thing to say, it's just honest but there is something kind of taboo about it too, and that's why it feels so good to say, and even better to admit to yourself. This could actually be another step forward into the zen state of mind that I have been working toward now that I think about it. I could be opening up more possibilities for mindfulness and mindlessness here and I am digging on that in a big way.
But really who am I trying to fool? I have no idea what I am doing!
Release Date: 2015
Running Time: 124 mins
A biographical drama based on the life of Joy Mangano, a self-made millionaire who created her own business empire after she invented the Miracle Mop. Written and directed by David O. Russell, this film really owes its success to Jennifer Lawrence who just shines as Joy, earning herself a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and stealing all of the attention from her exceptionally talented support cast.
Divorced mother of two Joy Mangano has a life over-flowing with family drama, but never over-flowing with money. After injuring her hands on a mop head, she sees a gap in the market for a self-wringing mop head and sets the wheels in motion to create and market her design.
Not really the most exciting storyline to hit the big screen, but in spite of its flaws, this film works beautifully as a homage to all of those 'never give up on your dreams' stories. Persistence really does pay off, well it did for Joy Mangano anyway, and it sure was nice to see a sassy lady with a head for business rising up against the odds to make something better of herself, what's not to like about that?
FINAL SAY: The world doesn't owe you a thing.
