Soul Surfer

It has been a long time since I have truly LOVED a movie.
I mean, I have seen plenty of movies that I enjoyed and I will see again, but none that I have truly just loved.
Well, that streak has finally come to an end. 
I finally saw this AMAZING movie....
and I think it just might be my favorite!
Like music, I am drawn to movies that are inspiring and teach good messages!
This one definitely does.
I left the theater being reminded of this truths:

-Sometimes, you just have to take a new perspective

-Sometimes it seems like we aren't progressing very much, but as long as we are going in the right direction, that's all that matters

-"Being normal is overrated."

-Losing yourself in serving others helps you to find yourself

-The right person will love you exactly the way you are

-"Compassion can drive us to do amazing things and give us perspective."

-"Love is bigger than any tidal waves or fear."

-The Lord has a plan for us. We just have to be patient as we figure it out.

It was definitely one of the most inspirational movies I have ever seen!
I cannot wait to see it again!
I think one of the best things about it is that everyone can relate to it.
I'm not saying we are all surfers and our missing an arm.
However, we all have our own struggles and weaknesses.
Sometimes it is so easy for this to get in the way, especially when the waves of life hit.
But, we just got get back up and keep going!
I recommend it to everyone, especially if you are going through a hard time!
You will walk away feeling better about life! 
It is amazing!
