Have you ever experienced something that allowed you to reflect deeply on how we can get thrown off track so easily by the little challenges in life?
Have you ever thought about how that slight veering can often lead to a chain of unfortunate events that may have been avoided if you were able to let the little things roll off of your shoulders, thus going with the flow and riding the waves of life rather than meeting life with resistance?
This shocking and dark short film inspired deep reflection on life and its connections and lessons. It reminded me to pay attention and to take nothing for granted.
Plus, I wanted to share this video because I love to support the arts.
