I would say the stars shone brighter but, let's be real....I live in Atlanta, there are no stars. Just a sky full of city lights.
I know people don't want to see The Fault in Our Stars because it's a cancer movie, and it's sad. And it is a cancer movie. And it is sad. It's a peek into the reality of what cancer is and makes "ignorance is bliss" the truest statement there ever was.
But more than a movie about cancer, it's a movie about life.
It ignites your senses. I don't think I've been more acutely aware of my ability to climb steps or take a deep breath of
fresh city-smog air.
It reminds you what it's like to be in that blinded first love. The kind of love when you weren't ever jaded and you believed everything.
And it makes you thankful for the day. Who hasn't wished for a Monday to turn into a Friday or 8am to be 5pm or even for winter to turn into spring. I will be the first to admit I can get so consumed by work stress or personal stress and simply forget that there is good even when life is not.
Yes you will ugly cry. Or maybe you'll just walk away with a headache from stoically holding it all in. But you will most likely walk away thankful. Or maybe just appreciate all our little infinities.
"It's a good life, Hazel Grace."
That it is.
