I watched Charlotte’s Web this weekend. I’m not sure what possessed me to rent the movie. I think it had a lot to do with wanting to watch something that didn’t require a lot of thinking. I ended up enjoying it a lot. It reminded me a lot about life, how very different creatures can come together and still love one another despite their differences. I felt it was about how everyone deserves their chance at life, even if they are the runts and that no one can make the call that a person shouldn’t be able to live happily.
There was a line in it that caught my attention. I’m sure I will screw this line up, but the it was about how when two very ordinary things come together, they become not so ordinary. I likened this to certain friendships/relationships. You can take two very run of the mill persons. Alone there isn’t anything that is so spectacular about either one. Nothing stands out and for the most part, you can’t remember anything extra-ordinary about that person. But because of their reaction to you, a certain characteristic that you bring out, the person can suddenly shine like a bright light.
It happens to all of us. There are certain people who we attach ourselves to that bring out that smile that catches someone else’s eyes. A person who can boost your self-esteem and so self confidence is suddenly more noticeable.
It’s those ordinary persons in our lives that make us unique.
Have a good week!
