To be a better person; to be better human than I was yesterday; to be better in my mind, body and soul – that’s my goal; always has been. Everything I do or strive to do makes me better. It’s easy write down this comparative but being it is much harder. It means pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
I love watching movies; I get lost in them most times because I become the characters for a while. The first movie I have watched this year is Second Act where Jennifer Lopez takes the main role – I have always been her fan since Shades of Blue. This movie tells the story of a 40-year-old woman who gets a second chance at her work life in the corporate world after faking her resume. She is able to show that skills are much more important that having a degree from whatever school because she’s good at her job .
JLO’s character really inspires me because it represents who we are. At some point in our lives, we are afraid of taking a step forward because of fearing the unknown; because of thinking that we are not worthy when it really depends on our attitude. If you are want to learn and be better, a piece of paper will not make you that, but your own willingness to put in the effort to be what you aspire to be.
Apart from the movie, one of the songs, limitless, has greatly inspired me to strive to pursue what I believe in. I know that I am the only one who has to achieve the goals I have set for myself because they are mine; I have all it takes to be who I want to be no matter my age, or qualification or whatever situation I may be in right now.
With the year being in its infant stages, there’s no better anthem than #LIMITLESS to take me through as the year matures. They say it’s easier said than done but what is life without challenges aye! I’m definitely grateful for such films that inspire my life and many others’…if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. You’ll laugh, cry and be inspired to be who you want to be – limitless.
As the new year unfolds, I hope that you get to be who you desire to be. Remember to spread love, be happy and blossom into an amazing human. Happy 2019! Salud!
