The eagle has landed

The film, Eddie The Eagle, has just moved from my list of “To Watch” to my list of “All-Time Favorites”. I have also just recommended it to all my Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook connections.

I’m on a high right now. I’m listing down all the words I can associate to this movie, this life story:

Dedication. Passion. Failure. Determination. Rejection. Inspiration. Trust. Courage. Heart. Ambition. Training. Dream. Positivity. Negativity. Hope. Struggle. Pain. Recognition. Effort. Discipline. Readiness. Spirit. Motivation. Experience. Preparation. Encouragement. Understanding. Belief.

No further explanations. That’s it; that’s the review.

Eyes

Sight is the most precious thing to me. Whenever asked which of the five senses I would be alright living without, sight isn’t even in the choices.

Watching this video made me decide right then and there that when I have enough money, I will donate glasses or caah to people who were born colorblind or blind.

It just isn’t fair. It’s unfair that they don’t get to see, appreciate, and be in awe of God’s wonderful creations. They cannot not see this beauty.. this marvelous world we’re in.

I vow to do so.

“Thank God for what’s happening right now. It may not be good, but thank God.”

It starts within, yes. But maybe, just maybe, what’s missing is someone who’d constantly push you to do better.

Discovery

This friendship’s making me realize how killjoy I am most times and how much better it is to just live, say yes, take risks, be happy.

Me First

I think I now know how I’d start my 2018 right.

  • Take risks
  • Be honest
  • Live in the moment
  • Say yes
  • Be happy
  • Love freely
  • Take chances
  • Open up
  • Be brave
  • Have fun
  • Give time
  • Be me
  • Decide for me
