Why Do You Do What You Do?

I start this Tuesday morning with a wonderful message again from the very kind Bo Sanchez. This man asks the difficult questions, it's hard not to pay attention.

I'm sharing again the questions from my GodWhispers.com subscription. I'm sharing for anyone that needs to ask the questions but may be too afraid to ask cos they are not ready for the answers, or for anyone at all that needs to hear. This message is brought to you by the Sunny Tuesday Morning and the  Letters T for Tough and L for Love.

***
Why do you do what you do? Always examine your motives. If you discover that what you're doing doesn't come from love, abandon your course. Stop. And pray for love. Everything you do must come from love. Everything!

I've planted great love within you -- It's there waiting to guide your every step.

Choose

If it isn't hot and fiery passion or an outright, albeit consensual, sellout, what are you still doing there? "It" can be whatever for you -- a juvenile relationship, a long-term relationship, a job, a business venture, a project, a hobby, whatever you choose it to be. For me it becomes a question of a job/ life vocation of choice/ means of living/the something that takes the biggest chunk of your time every day.

I don't mean to make it sound polar, you know how passion always goes with poverty and a life of bliss in certainty while selling out always means a meaningless existence and a life of guilt. Sometimes you do what you love and you end up getting the best of both worlds. Sometimes you make as much money, or surprisingly even more, doing what you love, as if you "sold out" and did something your heart wasn't on, supposedly "just for the money".

What You Cannot Imagine Cannot Take Place

So this morning I read my email subscription to GodWhisphers.com from the kind Bo Sanchez. Today's message was spot on. Too spot on, it hurts a bit. I'm putting it up here in the hopes it that it also serves to inspire whoever needs to read this message.

***
What you cannot imagine cannot take place. You have to learn to imagine again. It's more powerful than your intellect. Imagine your desired future everyday. And make this imagination your intercession.

Sometimes, it's painful to dream. So many of your dreams have been dashed to the ground. But you still have to dream. Never give up. It's the only way to fulfill them.

Quirky Internet Thingums

A few weeks back, I saw a link to "Best Internet Photos of 2010" or something like that. (To the author my apologies, as I did not, for the life of me, copy the link to the great great article. Sorry!) It was a compilation of all the awesome internet junk created in the year 2010.

This one photo stood out for me as very quirky and unbelievably heartwarming. It's an invite to a certain Jill&Matt wedding telling their very long love story. Read and swoon away :)

Im reposting this image without credit -- my apologies to the owner.
I, however, do not lay claim to ownership of the image.
That's the dream. This is the kind of invite I'd like to send out. Isn't it the cutest? :)

The Jesse Eisenberg Effect

Folks, give it up for... The Jesse Eisenberg Phase -- brought to you, of course by, watching The Social Network twice over in a week. So I've been trawling Youtube lately for cast interviews for The Social Network. Firstly because Jesse Eisenberg is such a doll and just recently, because Andrew Garfield talks in that unbelievably adorable accent.

Just to bookmark this phase with a lovely remembrance, I'm putting up this video of a series of interviews with Jesse, Aaron Sorkin (the brilliant writer behind the awesome awesome The Social Network script) and Armie Hammer aka Gossip Girl's Gabriel aka Poppy and Serena's former scheming boytoy. Listen to Jesse talk and find out that he really is a geek in real life and how with that hair anything he says is adorable.

I picked this video because Jesse looks absofrickinlutely pretty here. His hair is just the right amount of messy, OMG his skin is unbelievably clear it's glowing and look at that pretty little face. Seeing him in Adventureland and The Education of Charlie Banks as that painfully awkward teenager that walks weird, you just never think he will be able to look this pretty. Pleasant surprise. In three words, he looks phenomenal. Come on, press play.

The Social Network aka This review is rife with superlatives

As I type this, I have a few YouTube videos open showing cast interviews of Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield for The Social Network. I can't believe how fascinated I am by this movie. I caught it first on Monday last week and then again Thursday the same week.

I came to the movie a little apprehensive. I was scared I will be disappointed when I walk out of the movie house because I read and heard so many rave reviews the weeks leading to opening day. Everyone, sophisticated and poser critics alike, gave the movie stellar ratings. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 100%. The bar was just raised so high I was scared the movie might not measure up.

Story of my Life :p

Favorite song at the moment? :) And why, if you have a reason. Haha

"Fuck You" by Cee Lo Green. It's such a happy-sounding song. The cussing helps too when you're having a bad day :p

Yes?
