No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.” – P.T. Barnum
If you haven’t yet seen the new movie “The Greatest Showman”…. GO SEE IT! Oh my goodness it is fantastic! Seriously, the storyline, the music, and the cinematography are just amazing! And there are so many great messages in the film: from the way a simple kindness from a stranger can change a life, to the importance of family. It reminds us that it is the value of relationships that truly matter in life, not fame or fortune. I love that it shares a message of embracing what makes you different and it points out that it is our unique traits that allow us to contribute to this world in a way that only we can. I also love that it reminds us to dream big and allow our imagination to take us somewhere no one has been before.
There were just so many great things in this movie and I loved that it was rated PG! It’s been too long since we’ve had a non-animated PG family film in theaters. It’s nice to watch a movie and feel good when you walk out of it. Go see it and you will see exactly what I mean. You will also be singing the Soundtrack for days on end…SO GOOD!!!
I better stop with that because I don’t want to give any spoilers away about the movie so I am just going to say it once more – GO SEE IT! You will LOVE IT!!! It will make you HAPPY!
And remember – Be willing to DREAM BIG! Allow your imaginations to think grander than you ever have before, especially as you are setting new goals for 2018! Don’t worry if your goal is something no one has ever done before! After all, “No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.”
Have a great one!
