i hope you make the best of it.

i recently read a quote from the 'curious case of benjamin button', and it instantly made me want to watch the movie again. on my list of favourites, i hadn't seen it in a few years, and wanted to watch it again to see how i felt about it. and that's what we did last night. it's funny how your appreciation for something can change so much depending on the stage of life or state of mind you're in. released only four years ago, i feel totally different about the film now, than i did yesterday--i feel like i now recognize the full worth of some of the lines and details, i didn't take note of before--how beautifully it was filmed, cast and told. i even did my research, and was surprised to find that the original short story was written by f. scott fitzgerald, which explains why so many of the quotes from the film, make so much emotional sense.

sometimes it's nice to try things on for size again. for what it's worth.

for what it's worth:
it's never too late or,
in my case, too early
to be whoever you want to be.
there's no time limit, 
stop whenever you want.
you can change or stay the same, 
there are no rules to this thing.
we can make the best or the worst of it.
i hope you make the best of it.
and i hope you see things that startle you.
i hope you feel things you never felt before.
i hope you meet people with a different point of view.
i hope you live a life you're proud of.
if you find that you're not, i hope you have the strength 
to start all over again.
