Iron Man

ironmanmovieposter.jpg I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie, but I loved it. Robert Downey Jr was terrific! Not so sure about Gweneth Paltrow though.

Can't wait for the second part! Hope they maintain a similar standard.

How Much?


We all have a certain number of nerves and some people manage to work your last one. My question is, how much is too much? How much can you tolerate - whether it be a person, a job, a situation you're dealing with? And has your tolerance level changed over the years?

Personally, I used to put up with so much. No clue how I did it. Eventually, I guess I realized how rare a commodity time is. Hence, my tolerance took a steep drop. Yet, I wonder sometimes, has it gone too far? How do you know when your tolerance level is too low and impractical?

Throughout life, we meet many different types of people. Some who leave absolutely no mark, some who entertain us for a while, and some who leave ever lasting impressions. Regardless of the circumstances, it is important to meet all those different types as they help mold your outlook towards life and make you appreciate the good people in your life even more.

Thing is, there are many times where we let our emotions and fears override everything else. Don't get me wrong, I'm an advocate of emotion. Without it, not much differentiates us from a rock on the street. Yet, we need to develop over time some sensor that enables us to control that emotion enough so that it doesn't rule our life. Why? Because emotions have a way of blinding our vision and making us take decisions that we may regret later on when the emotions have cooled off or subsided.

That said, it's always easier said than done. It just takes time and experience to eventually teach us the hard way. For me, sometimes it's a matter of weighing things out and some people are just not worth losing over emotions that we can't control.
