Crazy Love: March 27, 2015

I have been trying really hard to think about how to explain what this quote means to me. The best I think I can do is to describe a very small synopsis of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". Walter Mitty worked for TIME magazine and this quote is the motto of TIME in the movie. Walter dreamed of being anywhere but his mundane life. Unfortunately, this means he would be so lost in his daydreams that he would forget about the world that was going on around him. Then he finally gets an opportunity to live his dream and travel the world to find his favorite photographer. He learns much on the journey including how much he missed when living in his day dreams. And I think that is point of this quote. It isn't "Go Travel the World and Find Yourself", as it suggests at first glance. It is that you need to give life your all. To not live in a day dream and miss out on all of the opportunities this world has to offer. This can mean a multitude of things, such as striking up the courage to talk to someone you have feelings for, go for that promotion, or even not letting anything hold you back. That is the purpose of life.
