I just finished watching this movie and I gotta say I’m not a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but this was a good movie, not in terms of acting necessarily, but as an inspiration, a great idea and guidance.
We all have a desire deep down, sometimes we might damp it with security and settle for something less than great like a crappy job, ordinary boyfriend / girlfriend or husband / wife, monotonous life and robotic living just to fit into society’s norm or what we believe we deserve based on our past conditioning.
That’s the sad part, but this movie came as a breath of fresh air for me, as you don’t need to have everything planned out like they say we need to have goals and specific ideas of what our lives ought to be like and lose the flexibility to see the beauty in other ways of making our lives great.
This film was a two hour life lesson taking course as in:
- You should never take crap from anybody
- Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do
- If you have a vision, go for it, even if you don’t know all the specific details
- Everything will fall into place once you follow your path
- Do the best you can with what you have and last, but the most important
- Never, Ever Give Up!
It’s your life after all! You make it the way you want it!
