I haven’t seen a movie in I don’t even remember how long, but this weekend, I saw ‘Unbroken’ and I think it might be the best movie I have ever seen! If you are in need of some inspiration, go see this one as quickly as you can! After it is over, you will feel like you are on the top of the world and can do anything you want to do! Whatever challenges you are currently facing and whatever life throws at you in the future, I am positive that they can not possibly match what this man went through and overcame. I watched, astounded, as the scenarios he found himself in kept growing worse and worse. How could one man go through all of that? And yet, his spirit remained as strong and intact as possible. It never wavered. We are so much stronger and so much more capable than we ever give ourselves credit for. And perhaps the most touching thing of all was his ability to forgive everyone who had harmed him. Truly incredible and humbling.
After seeing this movie, I feel like my life is a piece of cake in comparison. Torn meniscus? No problem. Watch me do a 90 minute yoga practice with my first arm balances in 2 months. The body can take a lot of damage. It will heal. Keep the light within you burning no matter what is happening around you or to you. Stay true to your own integrity. It matters. Keep the faith that all challenges are temporary and will pass. And keep surrendering to the force that is greater than you. You are being carried.
My friend, Weeds, just posted this yesterday:
‘To all of my friends who have had or are having a hard time :
“Until your knees hit the floor, you’re just playing at life …The moment of surrender is not when life is over. It’s when life begins.” M.W.’
Get to it, people!
The time is now.
