So, you know how everyone thinks that the Top is his totem, but in the beginning he mentions that it’s actually Mal’s? Well, you see, if it’s not his totem, then it’s not going to properly work for him. Cobb’s totem is his wedding ring. Whenever he’s dreaming, he has a wedding ring on because, as he says, in his dreams, they’re still together. In reality, he’s not wearing a ring. During the last scene of the movie? He’s not wearing a ring. BAM, REALITY.
This song reminds me to take today for what it’s worth. That today is new. I love the line, “Don’t close your eyes,” because I feel like that reminds us to face today. To face our fears, our struggles, and ourselves every day. At TWLOHA we believe that questions matter, that even if we don’t have a clear answer, there’s something valuable in asking them.
I also love the question, “This is your life, are you who you want to be?” I feel like this is a question that we can never ask ourselves too much. It reminds us to really evaluate who we are and what we are doing. I encourage you to ask yourself this question today.
