I've watched the movie Bella 3 times in the last 2 days. It's a beautiful movie dealing with many themes and realities I think tend to be shoved aside and ignored. I watched some of the special features and was struck by the passion of the people working on the film. The director said that he was talking to some friends before any thoughts about the story began to formulate in his mind, and he found himself saying that he would not want to support something he does not believe in. Later in the interview, he said "To do anything in life you need passion. Without passion you can't do anything,". That was the basic message given by all the producers and the actors.

It kind of clears things up for me. I have no idea what I want to do or study or become. I can do basically anything when I want to. My problem is my motivation. I hear people say that they want to do something because it makes money or because they admire somebody else who has done something similar. To me, I want to follow my own path because it is mine to follow. I want to find something I can give myself to entirely without holding anything back, and create something beautiful that can change hearts. I want to be myself.

This is my song for today.

c'mon c'mon

You've been living life like it's a sequel
and you're already bored with the plot
as if the cast and the score
are more money than before
but the script and the backdrop ore stock

we've got the rest of our lives to regret
all the words that were said here tonight but I'll bet
that the morning, in the morning
we'll find us in bloom

so c'mon c'mon c'mon
let's not be our parents
oh c'mon c'mon c'mon
let's follow this through
oh c'mon c'mon c'mon
everything's waiting

we will rise with the wings of the dawn
when everyting's new

Ever size up with the summer sun?
Let these songs awaken the dawn
Let us breathe every breath
like a gift to be kept
Let us breathe it all in till it's gone

We've got the rest of our lives to live out
all these dreams we've stayed up tonight talking about
In the morning start hoping to not be too soon

So c'mon c'mon c'mon
let's abandon this darkness
oh c'mon c'mon c'mon
let's follow this through
yeah so c'mon c'mon c'mon
everything's waiting
We'll be lit up like fire and gold
when everything's new
