At the last minute, a friend and I went to see A Star Is Born. While I hazily remember the movie with Kris and Barbra years ago, I was excited to see this version. It doesn’t hurt that I think that Bradley Cooper is handsome. And may I say, they didn’t disappoint!
All you gotta do is trust me. That’s all you got to do.
The poignant moment when Jack says the above to Ally and she gets out of her comfort zone still haunts me. Why? Because it’s what I finally yearn for now that I’m years after being divorced. Maybe I won’t explain this properly, but let me try.
I love to experience new things, but when I hesitate, the moment gets lost. But, when someone reaches out beyond my boundaries, touches my heart and encourages me?
I can do anything! The impossible because plausible.
And as I watched that moment unfold in the movie (and in the trailer below at 1:30) a piece of my heart opened up wide with possibility, with hope, with yearning and the boundaries that I’d built, the walls that I’d cemented after my divorce, crumbled just a little.
I want someone with whom I can share that trust, that support, and that loving feeling. I’m willing to go out on a limb as my authentic self. I’ve been encouraging myself for awhile now. Growing and remembering my self whom I’d lost touch with so long ago. It’s like I’m trying to break free from the prison which harnessed me, limited me. I want to break free to be me and to share the journey with someone special. I want to trust in someone and have them trust in me. To share the ups and downs in this journey of life.
I want to trust again.
I know it’s just a movie, but that moment touched me. Thanks for reading. Have you seen the movie?
