Jackie: What is your criteria for a magnificent life?
Priest: Take control of your mind. We are the only creature on the planet that we can make ourselves miserable or make ourselves euphoric simply by the state of our thoughts.
There comes a time in man’s search for meaning, when one realizes — there are no answers. (beat) When you come to that horrible, unavoidable realization — you accept it. Or you kill yourself. Or you simply stop searching.
I have lived a blessed life. And yet every night when I climb into bed, turn off the lights, and stare into the dark, I wonder…is this all there is? Every soul on this planet does.
And then, when morning comes, we all wake up and make a pot of coffee.
JACKIE (O.S.) Why do we bother?
Jackie catches up to John Jr and picks him up. Twirls him.
PRIEST (O.S.) Because we do. You did this morning, and you will again tomorrow.
Jackie stops to watch her laughing children.
PRIEST (O.S.) God, in his infinite wisdom, has made sure…it is just enough for us.
Quote taken from “Jackie the movie”, script and link located below.
I posted this script quote from the script, as its right in line what I’ve been writing about with mental health and fertility. I love the subtle little things (about kids) that are written into the script. I know that we are on the only ones that can change our reality by choosing how we look at situation. There are many angles that can be taken. Its choosing which angle I look at it. Having moved through a “mini” breakdown in past two weeks, (more in next post) I can see how hard it also it can be to move and change my point of view. Its taken great effort and following my intuition.
