What a great movie to start off the MCU. I love tony’s arc in this movie!
How he could have been the villain if he didn’t change his way.
I love the teases for shield and nick fury as the post credit scene!

// BE PRESENT //
It’s easy to be present when you are exactly where you want to be. When your heart and head agree on everything and you’re basically living the dream.
On the other side. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s hard to be present when you are exactly where you don’t want to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your head may very well know why you are there, but it’s your heart, your feelings, that cause you to disengage and disconnect from the present moment. Your heart becomes restless with a discontentment, for it longs to be somewhere else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I came back to college, I strongly felt the discontentment of not wanting to be here. My heart was restless and I found myself thinking “I don’t want to be here, this isn’t where I belong.” I kept thinking of all the other places I wanted to be, all the other people I wanted to be with, and all the other things I wanted to be doing.
However, I was stuck in to college.
Stuck because I know I am supposed to be here, yet my feelings are completely out of line with that knowledge.
I did not want to be present, because I thought if I was present I would become more discontent with the reality I now faced. But actually the opposite happened. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I chose to be present, it gave me the opportunity to take hold of the moment. I became more aware of all God wanted/wants to do in this coming year.
It was freeing because I didn’t have to think of all I was missing out on, for my focus was on the here and now. Not on the then and there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I realized that the enemy will do anything to stop us from living in the moment and being present. When we remain discontent, disengaged, and dissatisfied, we are unable to walk in the ways of the kingdom. However, being fully present, living content, engaged, and satisfied, allows us to walk in freedom, joy, expectation, faith and so many other kingdom ways.
There is such a value in being present.
So be present.
