I watched the movie Today. It was amazing. Honestly, I love movies that give you that follow up time to keep thinking about your life. How hard is it to pursue your happiness. There was a quote in the movie that the character Chris Gardner said something like … “Happiness does not exist. We have to earn it.” And I couldn’t agree more. Honestly I know that for a fact. We are not born happy. We are never happy all the time. Those who say they are just kidden them selves. I can honestly say I am not happy. I can be fake happy. I am an expert at being the “fake” happy. I do it every day. Honestly if I had my way I would be sitting alone crying every hour not do anything. So one thing I loved about the story of the guy in the movie (which is based on a true story) that no matter how bad your life is, no matter how horrible it is, you never ever show it to people. If you have a goal in life, do anything you can to stand out and not show that you are weak. That is so hard to do. I try I really try to just do what I can do. I still don’t have a set goal in life. I am not sure what I want. Some may think I have it all, but believe me, the path to true happiness does not involve money and work. That is the last thing. For some it might be. However I mentioned this in an earlier reply or post that no matter what we have, then we are always missing something. Could be something that may not be so big. Something that might be insignificant to some, but means the world to others. And to reach that goal it will take so much work and so much determination. Another great quote from the movie that is in the trailer: “If you want something. Go get it. Period.”
That is what lots of people lack. They lack determination. Some people may not even have a goal in life. That is not another problem.
Anyways… I recommend EVERYONE to see this movie. It’s amazing! I always liked Will Smith movies, but this movie tops them all.
