Gandalf Changed My Life

In an earlier post, I made the statement that Gandalf changed my life. Here is how that happened. I was working at for Sprint, on a terrible shift, doing work I detested, mostly on night shift, and in a deep and dark depression. After midnight, we usually watched movies between calls (which was allowed). One night someone brought in The Lord of the Rings.

I was thinking... "Oh God, not that again!" But there it was, nothing to do but watch it, so I did. And once again I got totally caught up in the drama. And once again I started to wish that life really was like an epic fantasy movie. And once again, I felt myself spiralling into that dark feeling of disappointment with myself and my life.

And then, Frodo said: "I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened." Which really resonated with me, I was wishing lots of stuff had never happened to me too....

And this post has been moved to my new website, shirleytwofeathers.com, and can be found in its entirety on my personal blog, Hey It's Me, here: Gandalf Changed My Life
