One of my favorite scenes from Bridesmaids (2011) is when Megan comes to slap Annie around. Annie’s life is falling to pieces – a failed business, a bad break up, fired from her job, a crappy guy that keeps her around for booty calls, and she was replaced as the maid of honor in her best friend’s wedding. So she gives up hope that there’s any motivation to crawl out of her hole. So Megan bites her in the ass so she will fight for herself.
And Megan says to her at the end, “You’re your problem, Annie and you’re also your solution.” The external things around us will change – seasons will ebb and tide but we choose to walk on our path. Maybe we just need a few reminders or just a good slap in the face to remind us that we choose to go forward with our choices. Story of my life, well, season.
