So I just got done watching the movie Inception for the first time, and it literally blew my mind. It was quite the crazy movie watching experience. My face was permanently set in a puzzled expression the entire movie. I can’t really say if I completely enjoyed it or now, but I can say that it definitely made me think. The concept that our ideas define us is pretty deep. Our subconscious ideas not only define us, they also contain the most potential to be dangerous. If you think about it, our subconscious thoughts are our deepest and most hidden emotions, the things we are most scared of. These thoughts are the unknown, the scary unplanned, unknown area of our minds. The things buried in this unknown space in our minds have the greatest potential to help or hurt us.
For me, this is particularly true because I really do dislike the unknown. I love having a plan, and knowing exactly what is going to happen in my future. Because I hate the unknown, I cling to the comfortable. I hold tight to what I know because it is simple and easy, and well, happy. I am the kind of girl who orders the same thing on the menu every single time because I know I like it. Sure, the other choices might be more delicious, but I will never know because I stick with the menu option I already know. Clearly, this does not just apply to ordering food, it applies to how I decide a lot of things. Given the choice between the easy, comfortable option and the risky, potentially exciting option I will choose the former any day of the week. I would rather be content, happy, and a little boring all the time instead of trying to board an emotional roller coaster. I am definitely not a risk taker. Maybe that’s why I suck so bad at poker.
Anyways, this post sorta spiralled into complete randomness but that’s what I get for watching Inception. I am still waiting to hear a theory about that movie that makes sense to me.
