The picture says it all. I’ve got to say that the JOBS movie really inspired me and allow me to look at life in a different perspective.
Talking about JOBS reminded me of how we are sometimes so bound to what other people think or do. To do something that other people are not doing is considered abnormal.
How I see a typical story normally goes would be having a group of people you hang out with considering someone an outcast because he plays with rubrics, or he doesn’t share the same idea like the rest do . As long as you’re not siding that person, you’re safe, and in order not be an outcast, you choose to play it safe and do what others do.
I urge you. Don’t be the next Monkey See, Monkey Do. What if you are the one being outcasted?
Trust in your views.
I could consider myself a misfit. I’ve fallen and fought the battle of my early secondary school days, and with enough criticism (nerd, fatty bom bom) that could make me want to just give up on life.Though that world that surrounded my life seemed small, I dreamt BIG.
I told myself that I do not have to worry about not fitting in, because life goes on. I do not give up at the point when I’m falling, and push myself back up. I took in comments and ignore the rude remarks or LAUGH about it and make it my fulfilling desire to change these things others might think I won’t be able to or think I’m SIAO.
Reading the Meta Secret by Mel Gill, has allowed me to understand the situation I went through. Imagine our lives and what we are feeling like a thermometer. What we feel when we’re down and happy is the same thing. It’s only at a different degree.
We are able to choose how we move up and down that degree by allowing it to flow through us and understand that there’s ups and down’s in life. Understand how to react when a situation arises.
We know it in our heart we shouldn’t be afraid to fall yet, we’re always afraid of failure.
It might seem illogical or going to affect how people think of you, but the ones who sees things differently benefits from life in the long run. You allow yourself to change your world and also inspire other people to understand your world.
The question is will you do it for your own sake because you believe in your ability, or are you going to fall back and give up when the times are rough?
I blogged about overcoming my perspective of not being able watching movies alone. I find watching movies alone weird. That excuse of not having friends has led me to missing a lot of good movies.
Thanks to The Movie Club for the amazing event for JOBS movie and poster as well as the nice dinner.
ps. Thank you for letting me be the crazy one. It has made me to what I am today.
