Letter of the Week 12-15-12, Nandia

A couple of months ago my other sister Melissa and I went to see  one of the most amazing movies that I have seen my whole life. That movie is called “A Perfect Ending” by Nicole Conn (And Family), it quickly became one of my favorite movies. People who know me well would say that it’s only my favorite because it has some breathtaking love scenes but that’s not the case, it’s actually far from the truth for me. I mean they were how do I find the words, beautiful and intense, so real, but that’s not why I love it. For me and this is the message that I get from it, is that sometimes in life you spend a good part of it, living a way or in a situation that well you don’t want to be in but that you can’t leave. You do things, forget and forgive things that you shouldn’t and it sometimes tears you down. But in an instant, a moment that you least expect it, if allowed your life can change. You become the person that maybe you use to know and you hid it to please others, and then to finally reach the surface again and be set free is life changing.
.
Both of those women, their lives changed and they probably didn’t expect it to be a woman to change it. But love knows no gender and the heart wants what it wants, and a lot of the time it wins, sooner or later. Although it was short, it was beautiful (The women who portrayed them are beautiful) and it made them better. It wasn’t each characters perfect ending I’m sure, but for others love and being in love was. I can go on and on, but I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it. I love it though and it has made an impact in my life, you have to love yourself and know your worth. (You know in the end I believe that is when she felt the most alive, and that maybe for her it was “A Perfect Ending”.)
