To Find Each Other and Draw Closer

Aaron McHugh

I taped this picture on the dash of my car over my speedometer to remind me of what I want. It’s taken from the crux scene in A Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

After years of lifeless decisions to play it safe, Sean O’Connell’s pinup photo on Walter’s billboard animates, and Sean’s fingers beckon Walter to risk stepping into the unknown.

I’ve heard enough of your stories to know that behind all of the specifics, we all long to feel connected, to be accepted as we are, to find each other and draw closer.

You’re enough.
You have what it takes.
You’re worthy of love and belonging.
Certainty is a myth.
Give yourself a break.
Explore your frontier.
Choose the people you love.

Keep going,

Aaron
