The second post was about a movie I watched entitled One Day that starred Anne Hathaway (I know, even the actresses whose movies I choose to watch are vegan!) Anyway, I really enjoyed the narration of that movie. It was about her character and this guy, their relationship told through the same day of each passing year. Some years they were completely living separate lives, others they were friends, others they were together. It was a lifelong relationship that changed and struggled and evolved throughout the years, and I thought it was sweet and romantic and realistic at the same time. I understood who they were and how they grew as individuals. I understood their attraction and love for each other. I am not a big fan of sappy love stories where I don't get how the characters got to know each other in the first place, so this movie was a breath of fresh air.
What is interesting is that despite that blog having only 2 posts, it really did sum up what my 2012 was like. It was the year I took Jivamukti Teacher Training (although I almost didn't because I signed up for a program that I now know is not the right fit for me), and it was the year that I formed a lifelong relationship with my Jivamukti family. In the years to come, I will likely see my Jivamukti family only either in January during Tribe Gathering or August at Woodstock, and that is kind of how the story will be narrated, just like One Day, and there is something very sweet and fragile about its impermanence that I like.
