On Sunday, Hot Toddy and I saw the film, Peaceful Warrior based on the book by Dan Millman.
They were giving away free tickets at our church, so we went, in shifts. He saw the 1:00 matinee. I saw the 4:00 (our difficulty in finding a babysitter is fodder for another post). Personally, I love going to the movies by myself. The anonymity of it all. No one to bug me. No one talking through it. Todd, not so much. He feels like a loser all by himself, but he hadn't had popcorn in a year and it was calling him, big time, so off he went.
I won't ruin the story for those of you who might want to see it, but there were two nuggets I walked away with that I wanted to share.
1) The people that are hardest to love are those who need it the most.
2) If you could hear the negative self-talk going on in other people's minds, you would have a lot more compassion for them.
There was much more to the movie and apparently Millman has written a bunch of books. I'll have to check into them, because his message was really beautiful.
Nick Nolte starred in the film. He gets better and better with age.
Going to the movies was great.
Who knows? Maybe on our next date, Hot Toddy and I will even see the show together?
