“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” – Perks of Being a Wallflower (p. 39)

This week’s photo is inspired by what promises to be an incredibly emotional and cinematically beautiful film, based on the best-selling coming-of-age novel by Stephen Chboksy. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (starring Logan Lerman, the incomparable Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller) hits Canadian theatres October 5th. It will certainly remind us to seize every one of our life’s key moments, and to live them with great appreciation and great passion. We know, cue the Kleenex!

In a way, this picture serves the same purpose. Even the most ordinary of days can turn into something extraordinary, right? It only takes an instant.

Of course, that is not to say that we must shy away from being wallflowers, if that is what speaks to our soul. Sometimes it’s alright to live in our own heads or to act like nobody’s watching. It all comes down to being present as the world happens around us, rather than letting things happen to us. That could mean dancing in the rain or even just dancing in the dark.
