Meredith (voiceover): Remember when you were a kid and your biggest worry was, like, if you'd get a bike for your birthday or if you'd get to eat cookies for breakfast? Being an adult? Totally overrated. I mean seriously, don't be fooled by all the hot shoes and the great sex and the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. Adulthood is responsibility. Responsibility, it really does suck. Really, really sucks. Adults have to be places and do things and earn a living and pay the rent. And if you're training to be a surgeon, holding a human heart in your hands, hello? Talk about responsibility. Kind of makes bikes and cookies look really, really good, doesn't it? The scariest part about responsibility? When you screw up and let it slip right through your fingers. Responsibility, it really does suck. Unfortunately, once you get past the age of braces and training bras, responsability doesn't go away. It can't be avoided. Either someone makes us face it or we suffer the consequences. And still adulthood has its perks. I mean the shoes, the sex, the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. That's pretty damn good.
And today talking about this with you....really love the fish bowl :)
Lucas: Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small, like when we do a bad thing, for a good reason. Some are bigger, like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pains of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret, because we're looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past. And sometimes we bury our regret, by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did...but the things we didn't do. The things we didn't say that could save someone we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that's headed their way.
Lucas: There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honored by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simple give up.
One Tree Hill.
And today we have been talking about this, just a little bit, but it looks like there's someone else out there who is also trying to find THE WAY Well, maybe the capital letters are a bit too much...."the way" keeps changing all the time...I swear.....nearly a year since I came back and so many things have happened!!! and all of them while looking for "they way"
I guess it's time to stop looking for THE WAY, enjoy the ongoing gone, and from time to time think a bit of the possible one
Cualquiera puede enfadarse, eso es algo muy sencillo. Pero enfadarse con la persona adecuada, en el grado exacto, en el momento oportuno, con el propósito justo y del modo correcto, eso, ciertamente, no resulta tan sencillo.
Meredith Grey (voiceover): Intimacy is a four syllable word for "Here's my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy." It's both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without. Intimacy also comes attached to the three R's: relatives, romance, and roomates. There are some things you can't escape. And other things you just don't want to know.
A decade has already gone, they said the world would be over by 01.01.2000. And here we are. Some have gone and some new ones are about to come.
Out there, 2010 has been a roller coaster....from North to South, from East to West; Iceland, South Africa, Gulf of Mexico, Pakistan we cried, we laughed, we were disappointed and we made some discoveries
There would be things to forget but many others to remember.
Meredith Grey (voiceover): There's constant pressure to adapt to changes. It can be a painful process. But without it, you'll find yourself moving backwards instead of forwards. We have to keep reinventing ourselves almost every minute because the world can change in an instant, and there's no time for looking back. Sometimes the changes are forced on us, sometimes they happen by accident, and we make the most of them. we have to constantly come up with new ways to fix ourselves. So we change, we adapt, we create new versions of ourselves. We just need to be sure that this one in an improvement over the last.
Tropezamos de repente, como en un nuevo 11S. Sonreíste a quema ropa, contra el filo de mi boca. Y susurraste que el pasado, sólo es como un día malo. Y la lluvia abrió las puertas, de mi vida en tu Ford Fiesta.
(He de reconocer que yo también he reído a quema ropa al leer la frase :)
Meredith Grey (voiceover): In general, people can be categorized in one of two ways those who love surprises and those who don't. I don't. I've never met a surgeon that enjoys a surprise, because as surgeons, we like to be in the know. We have to be in the know, because when we aren't, people die and lawsuits happen. Am I rambling? I think I'm rambling. Okay, so my point, actually, and I do have one, has nothing to do with surprises or death or lawsuits, or even surgeons. My point is this: whoever said "What you don't know can't hurt you", was a complete and total moron. Because for most people I know, not knowing is the worst feeling in the world.
Meredith Grey (voiceover): The thing people forget is how good it can feel when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they're out in the open, like it o not. And once your secrets are out in the open, you don't have to hide behind them anymore. The problem with secrets is even when you think you're in control, you're not.
La frase de hoy ha sido genial por varios motivos. Primero, que se trata de una película que me gusta mucho y es una de mis escenas preferidas (los cuartos de revelado siempre me han gustado) y segundo que el director, David Trueba también me gusta y no sólo por su cine, pero también por sus novelas. Estos días de viaje, nos han acompañado sus tres libros:
Abierto toda lo noche Cuatro amigos Saber perder
Y al llegar hoy a casa, de la pecera ha salido una frase suya para cerrar el círculo de este viaje :)
Todos tenemos un centro de gravedad, el mío está en el cuello de Eva, en una pequeña marca que le han dejado los años que ha dedicado a tocar la viola. Cuando ese lugar se aleja, tira de nosotros como un imán.
