Be a part of something bigger...

I can't remember where I found this but it fits my mood right now.

The newest Twilight movie. UFC. Wii. Iphones. Mp3s.Facebook. Twitter. We are a generation drowning in distraction. The tragedy of it all is, is we are terribly bored. We are constantly looking for something to move us, to push us, to challenge us, to be part of that is bigger than ourselves.

I never watched the movie "He's just not that into you" but I did read this quote from it and I really like it, so I may have to go and watch it sometime.

"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you, he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs, and, someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we're told
implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell the ones who want us from the ones who don't, the ones who will stay from the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment... you never gave up hope."
