For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7 NIV)
I must say that this movie is one the best movies that I have seen period, and I don’t say that for a lot of films.
“Now you see me”is about four talented magician called the four horseman. Their shows are not your ordinary magic, pull a bunny out of a hat, kind of show. These four magicians rob banks. Throughout the movie the illusionists on a mission and the FBI who is constantly with no avail are always two steps behind them. This movie is full of twist, turns, and full of great magic tricks. It sucks you in and you never want it to end.
Peace, love, and write on,
The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That’s real glory. That’s the essence of it. – Vince Lombardi
Seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as “the biggest failure I knew.” Her marriage had failed, she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating:
Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
– J. K. Rowling, “The fringe benefits of failure”, 2008.
This quote from J.K. Rowling is such an inspiration to me because I have gone through a similar situation me being jobless, and a single mother as well. What inspires me is that even though she may have failed as being a wife, or at her job, it was a freeing experience, free to be who she really was. I can really relate. Over the last couple of years I have been hiding who I was, my dreams, my likes, dislikes , everything, because I guess I was embarrassed of what people would say. Now, I am accepting who I am day by day, trying to be fearless and step out on faith to follow my dreams. Because I don’t want to die regretting things that I didn’t do out of fear. I’m all in!!!!! Sky’s the limit!!!!!!
Peace, Love, and Write on,
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1, 2 NIV)
Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. (Proverbs 18:2 NIV)
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. (Colossians 4:5, 6 NIV)
