On Mother's day of 2019, I made a post on FB from which the idea of a film was born, and since my niece was just finishing her dance theater college I realized that maybe there is an opportunity to finally create a film with her and lots of dancing I dreamed of making. The story to go with the dance goes something like this: You know the advice: 'Cut all the negative people out of your life'? It always made me wonder. Just the other day I was at a workshop where the main advice passed onto the audience was: don’t tell the other person about your issues, even if it is solicited - but you aren’t at that level of friendship with them. And never do it at work! While I completely understand the premise, the fact that we have so many suicides (especially in Montana) makes me wonder how solid that advice is, and if it actually leaves many stranded on the precipice. I don’t want to be that person who performs the last nudge. So please just realize we are all slightly bipolar when it comes to energy levels. I am sure we all need to recharge every now and then, so the main objective here is to meet at the opposite moments during the charging cycle and build up our energies. We all should work together to swap that service as needed instead of passing around a drug that will let the other person forget they need recharging, but drains them even more. Let’s everyone ‘be a good mother’ to those who really need it. I promise you with most people it will be only temporary. Whenever we can, let's be those happy people with a positive attitude, who lift others up, for them it will feel like magic.
