Do you ever leave a happy movie feeling sad?
Hi so I went to see “Mama Mia 2” today because I needed a pick-me-up. Seriously no better movie to see; dancing, singing, amazing actors and music; it’s a must see. But something surprised me as I was leaving the theater. I went to the movie to cheer me up and it did for the two hours but then I was a little sad. I guess wishing for the joy or magic of the movie to last a little longer. Maybe I wanted the magic of the movies to bleed into my own life. How everything could go wrong or crazy or weird and still come together at the end with smiles, laughter, love, singing, and dancing. Maybe I’m a romantic in me that even when the couple has drama to work through they still come together in the end? Or that no matter how crazy a life can be or how bad it may be that the sun will rise the next day and the hero or heroine comes out on top? I don’t know, maybe I’m babbling after a long week but that’s what struck me today. Hoping in the magic of movies rubbing off in real life.
