Choose your movie wisely
(or: Your Life)

I hate to break it to you

but this movie

does not have a happy ending


The main character?

The hero?

It doesn't end well for them.


You see,

at the end of the film,

the hero

dies


Sorry to be a bearer of bad news


So all in all,

not a movie with a Hollywood happy ending


It's even trickier than that,

because, to top it all off

you don't even get to choose exactly which film.

(of the various films that don't have a happy ending) it'll be


You don't get to choose which 

is the film that will be yours


But...


You do have some influence

Probably more than you realize

So use it wisely


Make the most of your ability

to effect the type of film

that this will be


It's not the details of
every
single
scene in it
that matter the most

What matters is the type of film

The genre, as it were

So that, even though it won't have a
sugarcoated-
Hollywood-style
Happy Ending

It will have still been

a film that was

and a film that is --

Fulfilling

Meaningful

Satisfying

and

Worthwhile
