This is a guest post by my friend and fellow blogger and blogger friend, Mary. In my recent blog post on the topic of happiness, I took a look at the difference between thinking and feeling. In other words, I looked at the difference between a person who thinks she is happy and a person who feels happy.
The problem is that when it comes to happiness, it’s often hard to separate the two. Because so much of our happiness is tied to our expectations, our feelings, and our actions, we become so easily attached to our expectations, feelings, and actions that we lose sight of the fact that we are simply trying to survive.
When we can’t separate our expectations from our feelings, we can’t separate our feelings from our actions. We can’t do a great job of separating them, because we’re always going to be influenced by our emotions. This is why the saying, “It is not possible to live without your actions,” is so true. Your emotions are the only thing that keep you alive.
I think that’s a good thing, because I enjoy watching movies and watching TV. The only time I spend time watching movies is when I want to watch a movie; I am less interested than watching a TV movie.
I can honestly say that I have never watched a movie that I did not have a strong interest in. I am a big movie buff, so I tend to watch a lot of movies. With that said, I do tend to watch movies that are not really my passion. I tend to watch movies with my friends, because I can watch them with them and not feel like I am watching something I didn’t really like.
The more I watch movies, the more I find myself taking pictures of them, and the more I find myself becoming aware that people are watching them, and maybe it was not my intention to do this. I am a very passive person and I tend to avoid camera-less scenes, so why would I do this? I have a tendency to watch when I want to, and I usually do my best to keep it interesting.
The main thing that keeps people from watching movies is that they get distracted by the same things as in the movies. For example, an average American probably watches a lot of movies at noon and has no idea what the next one will be. That’s no excuse for this kind of behavior. Even if I was a little less passive, I would still watch movies at dawn, and if I was watching movies at a later time, I would watch the movies.
Thats it. I watch movies at noon, I watch movies at night, I watch movies in the middle of the night. Basically, I watch movies because I want to.
The reason is because these movies are often not as good as they appear to be. For instance, if I was watching a movie at noon and it was boring, I would probably stop watching it, as the movie wouldn’t be worth my time. Likewise, if I was watching a movie at night and it was boring, I would probably stop watching it, as the movie wouldn’t be worth my time.
