Just Me Checking In with Myself

“I arrived at being me.” Jack Nicholson,as the wealthy New York music mogul in “Something’s Gotta Give.” said as he finished his self evaluation tour.

Harry Sanborn (Jack) realized at the end of the movie who he really was. I would like to see the sequel so we can follow what Harry did with that realization. We got one scene at the end where he and Erica Barry (Diane Keaton) were married, sitting at a restaurant with their new grand baby. Everyone looked happy.

The sequel would be 23 years later when the grandson grew up…to be just like his grandpa. Now how does Harry respond to this mirror in life?

I love movies, theater, and productions. Seeing and laughing at life can be cleansing. Sometimes we see ourselves, who we are, or who we would like to be. 

It takes courage to examine ourselves and to ask if who others see, is really who we are. Or is it only who we let them see?  Sometimes living up to the standards set for us by external expectations can cripple our own growth.

Josh Groban sings  “someone I am is waiting for courage, the one I want, the one I will become with catch me” in his beautiful “Let Me Fall” song.

We are all becoming as we journey this life path. It takes honesty and courage to learn who we are and then to remain true to ourselves. 

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi
