I watched this movie for the first time today. I am so blown away. So blown away. I hardly have words. I hardly ever cry. Rarely. But this movie made me cry...and I mean I cried. I usually cry on movies that are based on true stories because it affects me to know that it really happened.
This movie reminded me that everything I have, I should be grateful for. I have so much. And every time I think that I don't have enough something rocks me back to earth and I realize how I have sooo much. I don't own a house, I have a late model car, and I don't have the latest in fashion.
But I have my health, somebody who will always believe in me and stand by me, and I have my family. I have everything that somebody needs in life. I have food, shelter, clothing, and my peace of mind.
I don't need "things" to prove that I have a good life. Yes, "things" are nice. But I think where I would be without the things that make me happy but with the "things" that people covet.
When a movie makes you reflect on your life you know it's a good one. This is one that touches my heart and helps me see what's important. Life is too short for pettiness. We are all humans and make mistakes. Just being a good person is what matters. So to all who read this, make sure you are good to your fellow man. Life is too short to not be nice. Just...be...nice.
