Blogathon: 7 Things I Learned from the Movies

banners

You’re invited to get deep, personal or have some fun with the lessons films have taught you, for the THINGS I LEARNED FROM THE MOVIES BLOGATHON.

Your hosts are Ruth of Silver Screenings and Kristina of Speakeasy, and this blogathon happens October 14-17, 2016.

You can do anything: a list, essay, video, or podcast, to discuss the valuable or ridiculous life lesson(s) you learned from a film, whether it was about love, war, greed, kindness, activism, bravery, sacrifice, or prejudice. Tell which movie taught you a universal truth, a new concept, the way a system works, how to craft the perfect comeback, deal with a bully, kill a vampire, behave on a date, solve a murder or mix a cocktail with style. Did a film guide your career choice, help you overcome an obstacle, better understand a friend, era, art form or culture, or change your life?

1. Kiss someone as if it is the last time! (Every time)

Keeps the passion going, always kiss the person you love as if you will never kiss them again!

2. You can only know about real loss if you love something more than you love yourself.

You can only experience that real loss feeling when you truly loved that person!

3. No matter how bad your day has been, tomorrow will always be a chance to start again.

Honestly it is, you will always feel better after even the smallest amount of sleep after a very awful day!

4. Happiness can be found even in the worst of times!

Another about bad times, but it is again true. You can always turn a light on when things get very dark!

5. Your playlist defines you!

What you have on your current playlist and listen to over and over again is the place that you are currently in!

6. You will get over having your heart broken.

Eventually anyway, but this is certainly a very helpful way to look at it. Just think about it in Julie Andrews voice as well and you will believe it!

7. Nobody’s perfect . . .

Quite possibly the best lesson from the movies to remember!

What have you learned from the movies?

  1. Wonderful lessons! I’m so glad you included Scarlett O’Hara’s “Tomorrow is another day”. These really are some of the best lessons the movies teach us.

    Thank you for joining the blogathon with this insightful and encouraging post! 🙂

  2. These are some great choices! I’m curious- did you have to look at your DVDs or bookshelf or were these messages you clung to prior to writing the post? There are so many good life-affirming messages you can take away the movies that it’s almost overwhelming to choose!
