This past Saturday, Josh and I had one of those rare and wonderful perfect days. This was before we got engaged so we were just chillin in with nothing to plan.
This movie changed my life.
I know, I know… you are thinking, “Maureen, it’s a chick flick. Simmer.” But seriously, I would say that this movie may have stolen number one spot from Titanic and that is saying something!
This week, I’m in Manhattan for three days of training to learn Final Cut Pro X for work. I’ve been seeing my friends and family while I’m here, and this morning as I was walking to the 2/3 train on the Upper West Side, I just felt really happy.
New York and I haven’t always gotten along. Let’s be honest, the day I moved out of the city a homeless man spit on me. ON ME. Inside of a Starbucks.
But today, I just couldn’t help but notice the beauty of everything. As I walked along W. 70th street the buildings seemed friendly. A old man eating a breakfast sandwich waved at a little baby girl in a stroller and she waved back. I had a delightful conversation about the weather in DC v. NY with two men on the subway.
I don’t know if NY has changed, or if I have changed but today there is joy. People are nice. Babies wave back. And the world is good.
Go see About Time and smile really big at the next person you see on the street. Because life is good.
