New York at the cinema

I went to the movies to see Reign on me and it was a great movie. It touched my heart seeing someone living with post traumatic stress syndrome and the power of friendship. The absolute highlight was seeing New York which is what started this blog in the first place. Now I have come to terms with the fact that I may not ever go to New York. There are other places I'd rather go now but I still love to see New York on the screen. I love all it's possibilities. All those people and places.
I have made some huge shifts in my attitude to my life and living with mental illness. I have to start a new medication in a few days and I am being confident and taking it in my stride rather than my usual dramatics. I am focusing more on what I am achieving in my life rather than what I am not. Life feels good focusing on the gratitudes. My gratitude journal is a highlight of my day now. I write in it just before sleep. I write down all my gratitudes and also the positive things I've learnt in the day and the people I have come in contact with. It is very uplifting.
I went to see Woody Allen's latest movie today. It was a little tedious but got better as it progressed. I loved the clever ending. I still like Woody's sense of humor. There was a couple of people talking all the way through the movie. A few of us were quite irritated. i finally told them after the movie how annoying it is to have people talking during the movie. The man was quite surprised. I don't think he realised. Obviously noone else has mentioned it. Most people don't have the confidence.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia
