If you fell down yesterday, stand up today." -H.G. Wells
I guess you could say today is a bit of a continuation from yesterday's post about standing up for yourself and really being a fighter when things go wrong. Since that post was fairly long, I'm going to attempt to keep this post a bit shorter.
Today I was watching "How to Train Your Dragon." Although I would still consider myself a die-hard Disney fan, Dream Works absolutely made the right decisions when making this movie. Often times it is difficult to stand up for yourself, especially when that thought belief differs from the popular majority or even differs from the viewpoints of your family. Of course the story follows a very familiar story line of a young man who finds himself and becomes a hero, but there is so much more than that. He opens the eyes of the villagers by bringing light to their ignorance and really lighting up the sky with his skills and passions. Multiple times in the movie, the main character's mentors tell him he needs to show less of "this" (while they motion to all of him), attempting to not spoil the movie, they then learn that all of "this" is actually a pretty great thing!
Question Time: So my question for you, what is one skill that you are particularly proud that you have? Personally I really enjoy my creativity. Not many people can imagine a different world like I can, and I have been glad to grow this skill over time!
About the video: I was very excited when this video was released today. Ok Go has became very popular with their treadmill video and once their viewers believed they were a one-hit wonder, they dazzle their audience with a thrilling new music video. This particular video is beautiful with tons of optical illusions as well as a deeper message that the truth was as plain as the writing on the wall, we just couldn't see it. Granted this message is about a couple that is about to break up, but personally I would like to imagine that it is about a person's skill and strength that they never even saw in themselves!
