All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. – Gandalf
I finally bought The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings on Bluray and have been watching them the past couple nights. This is the second quote from the movie that hit me and I thought I’d record it here.
It is a simple yet very deep statement. Most people go through life in a daze, letting the currents take them where it may. There are not many who sit, reflect, make a well thought out decision to change course and then follow through with it. We have been given time and so as Gandalf says, we only must to decide what to do with it.
I have made many big decisions in my life and determined my own course. This year I’ll be making another big decision; I’ll need to reflect and meditate, plan, and then execute. The easier path is to just let life happen and take you where it may. It is the difficult path to jump from the current and make your own way.
And on that note, I’ve also realized I have the books to The Hobbit and LOTR although I’ve had two or three different sets in the past! This year I’m also going to procure a very nice, hardback set of the adventure for my bookshelf.
