Diana and I went to see Good Luck Chuck tonight on this, our customary "date night." Somewhere along the line we got into this routine because it just made sense since it's not always easy to see each other during the week. It's a nice routine.
The movie, aside from being an excuse to see Jessica Alba being hot in her undies, is really about believing that if things are really going well, it's bound to end. I know that's a theme that a lot of us around here talk about all of the time.
In fact, it's one of those things that me and Diana talk about all of the time. We're so kick ass that we just assume it's destined to fail, and it's shitty that life and our experiences program us to think that way. Sometimes, when you strip away all of that expectation and scary shit, all you're left with is the glaring reality that things are pretty good, and not likely to change. How awesome is that?
It's not just something you apply to relationships necessarily either. I mean, you can apply it to jobs, hobbies and even the weather.
One might argue that you can't truly understand good without the opposing bad, and to some length I agree with that. However, there does come a point where you just need to sit back and recognize a good thing for what it is: A good thing.
I've sure got some good things going lately. :)
