when you find hope

Went on Hobbit movie date today (5 freaking stars); and he randomly suggests a good movie to watch on a Sunday evening.

"Go watch The Shawshank Redemption, you won't regret it"

And so after our date, I went and watched the movie on my laptop with leftover curry puffs.

I don't know if it's the jitters of soon-to-be-married thing, or simply because I was still in awe of Hobbit greatness - but this movie kind of captivated me right from the start till the end. It makes you feel that somehow all the bitterness in the world just don't matter and all you've got to do is to have faith.

Thus far, I think I've been lucky that I'm surrounded with positive people around me. Sure there are people who'd always look for ways to bring you down, who'd look and search for every tiny bit thing to badmouth you to others, who'd just do anything to make you look bad while they get to be the superior one, but really, why waste time worrying about those petty things? There's a whole lot more to life than the negativity these people impose, and if you would only let those petty things go and focus on the good things in your life, you'd feel way happier.

He always says to me right from the moment we started dating - always look at the bright side of life. Whenever I was down and needed to rant to him, that's what he'd say to me without fail, but I never realize how true it is up until now. (Regardless, he told me it's from a famous movie/song but I chose to believe it comes from his wisdom lol) It's so simple but so true, nothing is bad enough that you can't have faith.

You make mistakes, you try to move on from it. People sins, you forgive and start anew. These things would give you solace and hope; and you'd realize there's just more to life than those petty things you think matter so much.

Didn't think a movie could move me like it did, but I guess that's why it's the highest rated movie in IMDb.
