Just My Own Theory


I was surprised at how much The Theory of Everything affected me tonight. It was like I took a direct blow to the heart and the pain slowly released itself by leaking from my eyes. My reaction was surprising and took me a little off guard. Why did I find it so painful? When we are young and full of life, we have the best of intentions. We are passionate and bold and believe we can handle anything life hands our way. Then, life dishes it out and piles it on and throws us some more and we left there struggling, forgetting who we once were all those years ago. We wake up one day and life is not what we imagined it to be. Marriage is not some magical vow that ties us together til death do we part. The reality is relationships are hard and painful and they test us beyond what we ever imagined. Is it possible there is a theory for everything? Anything? Is everything just simply random and we desperately want to believe the meaning is there somewhere just beyond our human comprehension?

I thought the story was an amazing one. It shows that we are not defined by the odds. Sometimes, when we least expect it, something so unexpected happens to us, for us. You just never know. You have to wake up when you are lucky to wake up and take each day, each moment as it comes. One of my favorite quotes keeps running through my head tonight,

 “In the end, its not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Abe Lincoln

  1. I was very affected by the movie also. The scene towards the end where the man asks him since he doesn’t believe in God if he had a philosophy that helped him… That scene really touched me.

    His fantasy of getting up and picking up the pen that fell, and then the sudden cut back to him in the chair was so heartbreaking to me. Also his answer where he shows such a positive attitude despite all the adversity he had faced say so inspiring…

    ” There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. However bad life may seem, where there is life, there is hope.”

    • Yes, I totally agree. The other part was when Jane said I loved you the best I could. It was only supposed to be two years. Must have been so difficult for everyone and all those kids. It was just such a sad situation anyway you look at it and for him to be so amazing, his mind so alert yet trapped in his body with his amazing attitude. Just sad
