Would you defy fate?

Small things in our daily routine, like missing the bus in the morning, spilling coffee, forgetting something and turning back…we see them as chance. What if they’re not, what if everything has a higher purpose?

I’ve read a book recently that was based on the existence of Protective Angels. It is believed that each of us has someone up there constantly in our proximity, taking care of us …and every time we forget or miss something, it’s our angel trying to adjust our path, trying to prevent something negative happening.

I’ve found this idea really interesting and I’ve realized this movie was wrote on a similar ideology…

On the edge of winning a Senate seat, David Norris meets a ballerina named Elise. David learns that he is facing the agents of fate, who are trying to do everything to keep him on a predetermined path.

Creating a change in the future laid out for him, he must either accept an already written path that does not include Elise or else defy Fate to be with her.

When you make a decision, your mind is weighing options on how, when, where and what, those options are not always the right ones and when we tend to choose the wrong one, there is a glitch, a moment when a simple action gives us time to take a step back and re-think our next move. We don’t always notice this moment but that doesn’t mean it’s not there.

This movie it’s one of my favourite stories because it has some truth to it…I’ll be honest, sometimes I believe that our life was set way before we were born but it can change according to how soon we’ll realise that we have a choice…we all do…we have the ability to choose.

We don’t give ourselves always the option of choice, but that’s because it means we actually take responsibility for our life..and that is scary…to not be able to blame it on destiny if we might fail.

If you didn’t watch this movie, you should…yes, it has a bit of sci-fi but the message behind the curtain…that is, if you choose to reveal it…it’s much more meaningful!

Your destiny might be written but you still have free will to create your own path.

Enjoy movie night:)

‘Original sin – Pecado Original’


To keep in with this week’s spanish theme, I’ve chosen one of my all time favourite movies, not just because the main female character is one of my most loved actresses but because this love story brings to life those feelings which most of us are uncomfortable to admit we have … addiction to the person we love.

Original sin… Pecado original

Screen Shot 2015-03-18 at 20.56.52

Director: Michael Cristofer

Writers: Cornell Woolrich (novel), Michael Cristofer

Lead actors: Angelina Jolie, Antonio Banderas

2001 Drama, Romance

If you ever been truly in love…and I mean, when you feel you cannot breath without the other person, when you desperately try to imagine how your life would be without them, when you feel their joy and pain with them… when you feel truly addicted to that person, than this movie will make sense.

I watched it so many times and each time it brings to life the same pain and happiness, anger and forgiveness, love and addictive desire.

Luis and Julia are bound by marriage but their relationship quickly becomes driven by lust and desire, uncontrollable passion.

Everything starts with a lie… and I think this is one of the painful realities that this story brings to us… love, sometimes has to outlive tremendous pain and forgiveness to be able to survive and thrive to be eternal.

Julia seems more enigmatic as Luis gets closer, but then again, that is human nature, more people try to get to know us, more we build that wall that we think it protects from all the pain and sorrow.

The truth is… more we hide, more we lose time and the opportunity to find what we are meant to have and enjoy.

The story goes from a need to share to passion and love, ending in wild obsession… but who are we to judge what is real love?

Embark with me and let your senses free… open your mind and let your eyes be blind:)

Enjoy watching this movie!

“Sealed by red lips” Part 2

 PART 2

” Life is unpredictable, we all know that but what we fail to see most of the time is the journey that takes us to our destiny”

The morning after looked more like a tragic accident with a couple of deaths that you would see in the morning news than a lovers picture.

All the unexpressed feelings locked inside was a major problem for both of them; neither knew really where to start but they agreed on one thing: “last night was a mistake”. They both were looking for closure after so many years and this was a desperate attempt to achieve that.

John was feeling confused between anger and attraction, he wanted some real explanation why he wasn’t good enough to be her only choice. He hated the fact that after all these years she still had a hold on him and just a simple touch could drive him crazy addicted to her.

“ You choose to leave …” she suddenly said, looking out onto the street.

“What?, he seemed confused.

“ Eight years ago, you decided to leave and for a long time I didn’t know how should I feel about that. I wasn’t ready to leave London, I was afraid of what I felt for you, scared that you might change out there and …” she couldn’t finish saying what she wanted. Amanda turned her head and took a deep breath.

PART 1

“The sound of her steps were so familiar to him, but still made his heart rush every time.”

                                                                                   

They’ve knew each other for a very long time and a few months ago they’ve started to see more of one another because of work. At the beginning it did not seem to affect anything but soon everything became awkward and just difficult.

Life is never how you plan it or want it; things just come together when you need them to.

Her life was an untold story; always trying not to look back on mistakes and wrong decisions she’s made, just being grateful for the amazing things she’s achieved and hoping she could find the way back to that moment when love was still a reality. Graduating and building a career as a journalist was not an easy ride; marrying the wrong man was more a foolish decision of a very young girl who thought the prince from the story looked more like a business man than a gentlemen and came with a Ferrari not a carriage.

‘You live and learn’, at least that’s what everyone says.

John and Amanda knew each other since childhood, growing up on the same street, playing in the same park and sometimes arguing over who should go first on the swing. Their friendship grew stronger with years and it seemed they will always be in each others life.

But then everything happened… Choices were made, different roads were taken and destiny just had other plans.
