"PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS."

7/30/15

Flashback to 2009 in New Orleans,Louisiana my life looked a lot different than it does now. You could probably even say I was doing my best to figure things out, all while trying to learn what life was trying to teach me. To put it plainly, tough times would be an understatement. When you're experiencing a time such as this, you look for inspiration and motivation anywhere you can find it. My younger brother had been tlling me for a while about this film "Pursuit of Happyness" starring my favorite entertainer Will Smith. So instead of a Saturday night of painting the town red, I decided to stay home and watch this film. The beginning, duration and aftermath were absolutely amazing. Never had I been so moved by a film since the Shawshank Redemption. The thing that struck me the most was the theme of hope that consistently rang louder and louder throughout this movie that documented Chris Gardener's life. That night, although much had'nt changed, I knew I was changing for the better on the inside. The one thing that stood out to me that I feel like Will Smith has a firm resolve on in his on life, is the ability to make a choice. Make a choice, decide and stick with it. Something happens in the Universe when you commit yourself to the realization of a goal. Flash forward six years later, I look back on that time knowing that the moment I committed to fulfilling my dreams, everything I needed would fall into place. I still had to be patient, but at the right time great things would happened when I stayed firm. And you know what, it has and I could'nt have asked for a better life than I have now. My advice for you lovely people today and everyday is just to commit to what you want, be patient, always look within for guidance, but never look back in your "PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS."

To abundant peace, love and success
