I just finished watching the 3 idiots
It’s an Indian film about three engineers ( fun fact Indian movies always have singing in between so it was almost 3 hours long. I emphasize on it being a must-watch, heads up it has subtitles)
In general the movie is about life, yes I’m sure you know everything there is to life: work hard go to school, get a job, get a mortgage, meet a man or a woman, get kids and die a ripe old age …. well you’re wrong that’s not life in totality, there’s more and this movie just proved it to me.
One of the guys always wanted to be a wildlife photographer but his father forced him into doing engineering; all his 4 years he flunked cause it was not his passion.
The other one came from a poor background and his dad had paralysis, his sister wasn’t married cause she wouldn’t raise the dowry. (another fun fact in India the lady pays the groom’s dowry, sshh!!! my country people shouldn’t hear this or I will find myself married to an Indian 😂😂) and his mother always complained about everything.
Then there is the main star Rancho, he is smart… like extremely smart. The kind of guys who never study but when the results are out 😂😂😂 let’s just say at the ground level things are totally different.
I am not trying to write a movie review or anything but to drive the point home. Rancho challenged his 2 friends and they were able to steer their lives into the direction they wanted… they followed their hearts and passions
What is it that you think you live for?
Many people are out there fighting depression either cause of trying to fit in, cause they are afraid of what people will say or it’s already too late for them.
People are walking slaves, they don’t have a purpose so they look to the outside world for gratification and meaning. What happens in the end when you can’t get what you want or you finally get it, then what?
Others live in fear, fear of failing, fear of being rejected fear of being different and sticking out like a sore thumb. Fear is the reason we have so many idiots leading a country like Kenya
We are all different, of all the 7.7 billion people you are unique in your way; fingerprints, DNA and so many small but intricate things about you that can’t be matched.
It’s not worth it to live to the expectations of others, to live the life of your mother and father or to live in fear.
Stand up and say
MY NAME IS…AND I CHOOSE TO LIVE LIFE, MY LIFE
Drop the shit show because if you don’t do it now that you’re young it will be too late to steer your life back.
1. Stop caring about what people will say
2. Stand up to your parents
3. Stand up to your lover or spouse who is mistreating you or abusing you
4. Stand up to your fears
5. Stand up to your so-called friends
6. Stand up to your addictions 7. Stand up to the voice in your head that tells you you’re not good enough.
and in that moment when you are standing there, heart thumping just take a deep breath with your hand to your chest, whisper/ shout
“ALL IS WELL”
