I like to explore a lot. I don't like sitting in the same spot all the time. If I don't keep my mind productive I get a whole lot of anxiety about everything I could be doing. It is overwhelming and it is hard to sometimes focus on stuff because of it. When I write I'll go out of my way to go to a Barnes and Noble or a Library just to have some ambient noise and a change of scenery when I'm writing. I haven't seen this movie since theatres which surprises me since it was my favorite film of 2018. I just felt like I needed a special time to rewatch it and I certainly got one. When I saw this in theatres was one of the most stressful times of my life and when I watched this tonight I was also in a weird place. When this movie started tension started to fall off my shoulders. This movie is pure comfort and a reminder that yes- good people still exist and will continue to.
This movie is one of the ones that will always refuel my passion for creating stuff and putting my projects out there. I know some of my ideas can be odd and I can even poke fun at how awkward I can be and I do have self doubts about myself. This is a good mirror to show that even Mr. Rogers himself had these issues but was able to find himself and find a unique avenue to actually help people. I realized after watching this movie for the first time that I wanted to be a helper through my art and writing. I wanted people to know they were okay and we could all bond over our own struggles to understand the human connection.
Tonight I needed that reminder, I was put on this Earth to be a helper and that wasn't gonna be an easy task. Stupid stuff is always gonna get in the way but there's a reason all of us are here. After the movie my mom said, "Mr. Rogers was such a patient guy." and I replied, "Yup." She went on to say, "You know, I bet what he would say right now. That the Government was just worried about us and taking extra precautions to keep us safe and to just relax and read a good book."
Yeah that's the comfort I needed tonight. God bless this movie
