Sadder. Happier.

Last night with dinner, we started watching A Mighty Heart. That’s the movie about Daniel Pearl, the journalist who was murdered by a militant Islamic fundamentalists in 2002, and his wife Mariane.

It’s a heart-breaking story and a poorly executed movie. Angelina Joli plays Mariane Pearl and delivers an unforgivably flat performance. But, hey, that’s her specialty, so no surprises there. Kyle watched for about two-slices-of-pizza and decided he needed to leave the room, he thought it was THAT bad. I watched the whole thing and cried my eyes out at the end.

Getting married has done this thing to me where I find it harder and harder to detach from other people’s misfortunes. Before, I used to put myself in other people’s shoes and try to figure out how I would feel if I were them. Now, I imagine Kyle in their position and I just can’t bare the thought of it.

I find myself feeling VERY SAD more often. I also feel my life is so much fuller and that I am so much happier.
