Tip#672: Movement is Life – World War Z

Today is my birthday and it comes just days after the most incredible rainstorm and city flooding I have ever experienced in Toronto. People’s cars were stuck underwater and passengers were rescued from Go Trains with life rafts. Areas of the TTC subway system were flooded keeping thousands of people, such as myself, stuck in trying to get home. See amazing photos: National Post

Today I'd rather celebrate the mindset of persevering and moving forward because that’s how I got home. Every route I took got blocked while on streetcars or subways so I walked when needed in the pouring rain. I just kept moving forward and hours later I got home and was grateful despite the power being off in the entire neighborhood. This was a mirror for what I’ve learned in life and that is to keep moving forward rather then giving up when things looked hopeless.

World War Z (2013)

The apocalyptic horror movie, World War Z is about Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), a former United Nations investigator, who must travel the world to find a solution to stop a horrifying zombie pandemic. The story shows how resilient Gerry is as he thinks quickly to constantly protect his family and others around from overwhelming numbers of fast moving zombies. See: movie trailer

There is a line in the film that Gerry says that is the key to surviving, “Movement is life.” He was basically saying that if you want to live you better keep moving and not give up. It’s an inspirational message and it's a mindset I do my best to remember every time I face adversities. Everything eventually ends up being okay.

What movie heroes inspire you with their perseverance and positive mindsets? I would love to hear what films you resonate with!

I like how you tied in the floods with the Movie!

The opening Zombie scenes were shot in Glasgow so that was cool for me watching. I normally hate zombie movies so I had to be persuaded to go lol
It wasn't too bad.

Like you I am now facing challenges. Your experiences and your ability to cope have helped me cope too.Thanks.
