Tip#673: Be Open to Big Surprises – Pacific Rim

I have had a fantastic and memorable birthday week. And yet at first only one friend was available for a birthday dinner on the actually date but another friend told me “be open to big surprises!” I remained open and six other friends showed up at the last minute to a great restaurant called Fare Game Continental Cuisine! I was so happy! The wild game menu included Ostrich, Wild Boar, Venison, Duck, Lamb and Rabbit! Absolutely delicious! See photos: Facebook 

And then that same friend surprised me by taking me to the opening day screening of Pacific Rim. It was a thrill and also got to see my friend’s joy at his first IMAX 3D experience! The next day another friend made me wear a blindfold and earplugs and took me to his surprise gift for me. It was doing the EdgeWalk at the CN Tower!

It was a bright, sunny day standing high over Toronto with good friends. I actually felt no fear standing, with no handrails, at a height of 365 metres. I only felt my heart filled with excitement and an overflowing joy to be alive! Surprises can be so good!

Pacific Rim (2013)

The science fiction action film, Pacific Rim, is set in the future where humanity unites to build gigantic robots called Jaegers to battle colossal monsters invading Earth. This highly entertaining movie is filled with awe-inspiring scenes of these towering mechanical creations and alien creatures as well as great human characters you can cheer for. See: movie trailer

This film really represents big surprises as the scale of these monsters and robots are absolutely enormous. And at the same time there are small, unexpected moments that made me smile. Plus there are many motivational messages about teamwork and solving challenges together. Here’s a quote…

“Today at the edge of our hope, at the end of our time. We have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, we have chosen to believe in each other! Today there’s not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Today we face the monsters that are at our door, today we are cancelling the apocalypse!” 

Have you ever had a big surprise that made you so happy? Do you have any movies that were a big surprise for you? A good surprise? Please let me know!
