Happy Ending

I watched He's Just Not That Into You last night. I laughed, I cried, I winced a little bit when I saw too much of myself in Gigi. As ugly as the movie portrays our emotions, as women we can all own that we have felt that way at certain times. And I loved that they used Scarlett Johanssen, a far-from-skinny, beautiful woman as the sex symbol. Ben Affleck's expression and words when he asked Jennifer Aniston to marry him made me cry and I swooned when Alex told Gigi she was his exception. Sigh....too bad life isn't like the movies. My favorite quote has got to be this:

Maybe the happy ending doesn't include a wonderful guy. Maybe it's you. On your own, picking up the pieces and starting over. Freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just...moving on.
