Tip#508: A Special Message at Christmas - Love Actually
This is also a time when I get reflective about where I am in my life and career. In the past this holiday time amplified the anxiety of dreams and goals I haven't achieved yet. This year I am at peace with where I am. And I loved the synchronicity of catching Love Actually on the TV, one of my favourite holiday movies. A new motivational quote in the film caught my ear encouraging me towards an optimistic New Year! Here's the quote...
"You've seen the films, kiddo. It ain't over 'til it's over."
Love Actually 2003
The romantic comedy Love Actually explores different aspects of love through several separate stories as Christmas approaches. You see romantic love, the love between father and son, husband and wife, siblings, work colleagues and unrequited love. The stories interweave throughout as the wonderful soundtrack takes you through examples of relationships that may mirror your own.
The quote I mentioned is said by Daniel (Liam Neeson) to his son Sam (Thomas Sangster) when he feels he is too late to tell a girl he loves how he feels. I felt this quote was also meant for me for all my dreams and goals I've been trying to manifest. It not only addressed my passion for movies but also I felt it was a message from my own Dad who passed away in December 2000. Receiving this optimistic message would be one of the best Christmas gifts my Dad would have given me from heaven.
If you are watching movies at this holiday season I hope they are delivering heartwarming messages to you. I hope they are comforting you to be at peace with where you are in your life, career and relationships right now. And I hope they fill you with overflowing optimism for an exciting new year!
Merry Christmas wherever you are on this beautiful planet of ours!
