It’s not that I live to have people notice me. I’ve lived through the fickle and fleeting attentions of humans. I just ask myself, from time to to time, what am I doing with my life?
If they were to make a documentary on my life, would it even sell a ticket?
I’ve never gone to see a movie about a guy sitting around playing video games. I’ve never gone to see a movie about a family watching movies. Even the worst movies that I have seen were not completely about someone being entertained, someone disengaged, someone who wasn’t even trying.
We like movies about heroes and villains. We want to see adventure, excitement, tension, things blowing up, romance kindled and rekindled.
But do we live that life? Do I?
And here’s the best part. If we aren’t, it’s an easy fix. Put down the remote. Turn off the TV or computer or game console and walk out your front door, live, talk to your neighbor, serve them, love them.
You’ll be amazed. An adventure is waiting for you. And who knows…
They may make a movie about it.
