Important Things To Remember In Life

Thursday, February 28, 2019

It is very important for people to have positivity in their life. I know I talk about topics like this a lot, but it is only because I like encouraging others. You never know what someone is going through in everyday life. Sometimes we all need a little boost of support. 

Helping Someone Shine Will Not Dim Your Light
It’s good to support each other, that does not mean you will have a bad reputation for doing so. It doesn’t mean that you will not succeed in in everything you want to accomplish. 

You are good enough 
Do not let anyone tell you that you are not enough. If someone tries to belittle you and lower your self esteem, that means that they are going through something. Do not entertain their negativity energy, they feed of that. 

You matter 
You matter and you are loved! Don’t ever think that someone does not care about you because they do care. If you are around a great support system keep them close. You are important! 

Life doesn’t always go as planned and that’s ok
The thing about life is that sometimes you have to wing it and go with the flow. Some of the best things in life, come unexpectedly.

You are not a failure
If you did not accomplish a goal or you didn’t complete a marathon, does not mean you failed. The most important thing can do is try your best. That fact that you are taking risks and putting yourself out there means you have already won!

Do not give up
You can do it! Success does not happen over night, you might fall down and scrap yourself. Just know that it doesn’t matter how many times you fall, as long as you get back up and finish your goal!

I hope you remember these things and write them down if you have to! 

Doing Things Differently In 2019!

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

A new year equals a fresh start, to do things the right way. So you have learned from your mistakes and life lessons taught you what to do differently this time around. I’m not an expert on life and I’m still figuring out my own. This isn’t me giving you advice, it’s just us group of friends talking. What this means is that I am going to be completely honest with you. You have the opportunity to change your story if you didn’t like the previous chapter. With that being said you should let go of any negative energy that followed you into this year.

If you’re around toxic energy, that can have a major impact on your life. Sometimes we’re afraid of change and because of this we stay in our comfort zone. This is very understandable trust me, I’m talking to myself in this post too. When you are comfortable in a situation you think that, this is all you need. In any relationship you have, whether it’s with your significant others or friends you need to pay attention to who is in your corner rooting for you. Ask yourself if the people in your circle ones that always support you, are always there for you and love you the way you love them? 

If a situation is no longer good for you, then it will not benefit you. For example, if someone is always negative to you leave that negative vibes. Find people who are positive and always trying to lift you up and make you smile. If a friendship is one sided and you are the one going out of your way, maybe it’s not really a friendship anymore. Was it even a friendship to begin with. Most importantly, don’t be the one that is giving off negativity. Everyone is going through a battle or an obstacle in life and that doesn’t give anyone the right to beat them down further. If you are the one going through a battle you will get through it. If someone wants to be there for you, I know life may seem hard right now but don’t push them away. Those are the people you want in your life. You never know, but you might all of these things for a person. If you know someone is struggling be there for them, if you feel like you can’t then help them find someone to talk too. Kindness goes along way and it doesn’t cost to show someone you care.

So much is going on in the world today and we need to bring positive vibes more than ever. It seems like something terrible is happening either everyday or every other day. Be the light in your life, be that strength for yourself, be the friend you have always wanted. If you can find someone to be all of those things for you, that’s a bonus and the  person who can do that for you is a keeper. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this. Most importantly, I hope it helped you. Remember you are enough and you are worth it! 

Netflix Movie Birdbox

Thursday, February 21, 2019

When a new movie comes out, I don’t jump on the bandwagon to watch it. Unless I planning to watch the movie ahead of time that’s a different case. I’m not usually persuaded to watch anything, but seeing everyone on social media talking about the movie birdbox I had to see it for myself. Before watching I heard the movie just came out, but I never saw the trailer. Seeing all of the memes on Twitter and Instagram made me wonder what in the world was this movie actually about. I wasn’t sure whether it was a comedy, drama or suspense film. So I jumped on the bandwagon and saw the movie. If you’re not a fan of spoiler alerts than, I recommend you stop reading this. 

So I’m not going to lie, when the movie first started I was a little skeptical. I thought it was going to be boring because it didn’t really start off being interesting. Well I was way off base with this one. So after Malorie found out she was pregnant, she went to the hospital for a check up. This is when everything starts getting weird. As she’s leaving a woman is randomly hitting her head against the window. Now in the beginning of the film, Malorie and her sister Jessica saw on the news that everyone in other parts of the world people were not acting normal. So I guess she realized that whatever is happening has made its way to where she’s at. This is where everything starts getting intense. 

While in the car with her sister, everyone outside is acting erratic and running from something. We don’t really know why at first. Then her sister is staring into space while driving and something is wrong with her eyes. All of a sudden they get into a car crash. Fortunately both manage to get out, but the sister walk into on coming traffic and gets killed. I was low key shook and thinking what the heck did I get myself into. So why running to safety Malorie falls and this woman goes against her husband’s wishes and goes to save her, unfortunately she too got infected and died. 

That’s when the characters Tom and Lucy helped her and they went into the house. I’m not going to bore you with every little detail but what I will say is that being in a house with strangers you don’t know is already nerve wracking. The character Doug was a jerk and he did not like Malorie, because was the reason his wife died. Other than that, he was just a pain in my but. But that all changed in the end. 

Other characters like Greg, Charlie, Felix, Olympia and Cheryl we’re also in the house. Basically I was so upset that Greg sacrificed himself believing whatever this monster was, would not hurt him through the electronics. He was selfless, but was not thinking at all. After him everything started getting really intense amd serious. A few of them went to the store and once again, Doug being an airhead said they should stay at the store and forget about everyone else. During their time at the store Malorie found birds that proved to be helpful in the movie, by knowing when this unknown would arrive. Charlie sacrifice himself by running out the store and tackling someone who was possessed. 

Since then they went back to the house and this is where I became pissed of, Lucy and Felix took the car and ditched everybody. So if you watched it you could pretty much guess where they ended up. Later on in the movie Olympia let this strange guy Gary in and I was skeptical with that because he seemed off. So obviously Doug had problem it like always but I actually agreed with him. But because everyone didn’t like him with good reasons, Lucy ended up knocking him out and let locked him in a room. So I know I said I wasn’t going to tell you everything, but I also didn’t want to leave a big space in between either. So the next day Malorie and Olympia were on the brink of giving birth and that’s when sh** hit the fan. 

We all found out that the house should have listened to Doug and not let Gary in. Gary is one of those people who survived the plague just so he can infect more people. But you would have to see how we figured it out, if you haven’t watched the movie. After that he tried to kill Doug by opening the garage but Doug outsmarted him and didn’t look. So he made his way upstairs to infect everyone else. Cheryl and Olympia was some of his victims which is really sad because the girl just gave birth. He also knocked out Tom but he didn’t die. Before he tried to kill Malorie and the babies came to the rescue and shot Gary in the arm before he ended up dying. Tom managed to get Gary and he save Malorie and the kids. 

So five years had passed and they are taking care of the kids. The kids names through me off, just like everyone else but I understand why. She name them boy and girl because she didn’t really want them to have identities just in case they didn’t make it. Moving forward they got in contact with people who gave them directions to a location. Unfortunately people that were infected by still survived caught them. Tom ended up killing them but he took his blindfold off for the last one and died. That was one of the saddest moments of this movie.

After that while on their journey, Malorie needed one of the kids to look out so she could steer the boat. Boy which is her son and real child volunteered, she threw a small fit. I was low key shook and I felt bad for girl because she felt alone. But then Malorie decided that no one would look. In the end they all made it to the location which was a place for the blind which was a very powerful moment in the movie. Some people were able to see, that’s how Malorie and the kids got in. Malorie saw her doctor from the beginning there which was a nice thing because she’s a familiar face. When the doctor asked what the kids names were and they said boy & girl I laugh a little because of her facial expression. But what special about this moment is that she named girl after Olympia, her real mom and boy after Tom. 

I really enjoyed the movie and I think you should watch it, if you haven’t. A lot of people said this film was overrated and in my opinion I don’t think so. Everyone has their own taste in movies and it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But for me it’s a deeper meaning than a woman running with two kids named boy and girl. Birdbox has so many messages in the film, it’s all about paying attention and understanding. For me what I took away from this movie is survival. More importantly it symbolizes trust, loyalty, sacrifice, love, betrayal, selfishness and how far you will go to survive. 

I hope you enjoyed reading and if you got to this post in my post, you’re a trooper and I appreciate you. I did not realize how much I’ve written. I basically summarized the movie, sorry about that!
