For the next 40 days, I am trying something that seems hard to do – take negativity out of my life. I don’t really know how to do that but when I sat down and thought about it, I figured out that when I’m sad, I turn to movies to cheer me up. So if I want to take negativity out of my life, I should watch movies to inspire.
Rocky Balboa isn’t the Rocky movie you normally think of when looking for inspiration since it’s the sixth movie in the franchise but it’s the movie with the most to take away from. A beaten down fighter that seems to have lost everything he has loved – his wife, the ability to fight, his son’s love – and yet, Rocky still finds the positivity in life.
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows but it can be if you fight for the things that make you happy and the people you love. It can be.
