so, im watching the Pursuit of Happyness
and this movie touches me everytime!
talking about a man following his dreams and truly coming up
going above and beyond for his son
especially after the mom took off
i think he showed his son a VERY good example of what it means to stick to what you want no matter what
he made the impossible possible
he got his car taken
still paid his tickets off, while taking the bus
worked a FULL time internship while selling those crazy bone density scanners
lost his apartment moved into a motel
lost the motel room
even had to spend the night in a train station bathroom
ended up fighting for spare rooms at various shelters
all while STILL working the internship and selling the scanners and being a FULL time single dad
it was trying and he struggled a lot
but he ended up getting the job
chosen over the college educated guys,
the caucasion guys
and all the other more likely choices
to me he was very humble, yet had a sense of pride.
it was real deep to me
when he said he was thinking about the declaration of independence and when george washington said "life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness"
and that maybe happiness is something that can only be pursued and that you could never really have it.
i think on a lot of levels thats really true
humans are so fickle and unpredictable
what we want changes from minute to minute
what makes us happy changes from day to day
if anyone hasnt seen this movie i recommend it
for the adults and children both ♥
never give up on your dreams
