I think Dumb and Dumber is a funny movie. It was enjoyable as a kid. That last scene though, I realise I didn't get it until I was much older. Do watch - it takes all of 2 minutes.

Obviously, when I first saw it, all I can think of was IDIOTS. And you laugh because it is a great end to the movie.

When are we ever gonna catch a break?!

Literally a second later, they catch a break. But to their eyes, it is invisible.

It made me wonder how many times I've lost an opportunity because I've been too oblivious, too blinded by something frivolous, by my prejudices, by my emotional state. It still makes me think.

While dwelling on the past is not what I suggest, I do think there's value to deconstructing it. I still am unable to get into writing a journal daily, and my gut tells me that is the answer for me. I just need to do it.

Thinking about this scene has given me some resolve to do this journaling thing daily. After a month or two, I can think about it. Until then, journal.

Note to self - write a journal. Daily.
