had some time to think about the finale and as much as i would love to see the happy perfect ending for everyone; barney & robin together, ted & the mother grow old up together, & marshall and lily together as well. the show isn’t about perfection because that is not how life works. it has it’s ups and down.
the whole show since the beginning seem to about ted’s journey to meet the one, but like the kids said the story barely mentions her. not because he didn’t love her but because during his journey to meet the one he met other people who were great in his life, some who even became his family (the gang), others who were temporarily great & crappy too (every girl he got serious with).
so the show isn’t about “kids, this is the story how i met your mother and we lived happily ever after”. the show is about “kids, this is the story of how i met your mother. and it was not perfect. good things happen, but so will crappy things happen. but if you surrender yourself with people and give it all. it will be a legen…wait for it…dary. legendary”
ted nailed it when he talked about how he promises to give his all & love the mother when her, “to the lazy sundays, to every argument, etc” cuz ted is the kind of person who gave it all in all of his life aspects. yes, he fell in love super quick at times only to be broken hearted. yes, he attempt to be an artichect & start his own firm, & failed. yes, he never wanted to be a professor. but through the whole journey. he gave his all. he was given certain cards & made the best hand out of it. isn’t that what life is about. living and giving it all?!
whether i like the season finale or not. this show has given me 9 seasons of life lessons & that has been awesome.
