Power/Leadership Simplified | My View

Power and responsibility go together like… sense and sensibility…? No? Well, I’m not a poet; you shouldn’t have had high expectations, to begin with. Anyway, I’m sure you’ve all been exposed to this sentiment at one time or other in life:
“… For everyone to whom much is given, of him shall much be required; and of him to whom men entrust much, they will require and demand all the more.” (Luke 12:48)
It’s more popularly known this way:
“With great power comes great responsibility.” Thank you, Spider-Man comics.
I want to talk about the gross misunderstanding of the meaning of power in society today. I’ve been shirking having to write on this particular subject lately, but I’ve also been plagued by God to do it already. It’s a somewhat unpopular opinion, but I’m sure it’s shared by many. I’ll be blunt because I’m very irritated (euphemism) by what’s happening to people all over the world because of this thing.

The Gentlemen | My Take.

Last week, I watched The Gentlemen. It’s quite an enjoyable watch, and I was very glad to see Hugh Grant play a pretty trashy character. Now, if you can’t handle a bit of strong language, I’d advise against this one, but it really is an enjoyable film. The writing is great; my absolute favourite aspect of the film! The Gentlemen is written, directed and produced by Guy Ritchie, who brought us films like The Man from U.N.C.L.E., King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and the Sherlock Holmes franchise, among a whole lot!

MidSommar | My Take.

Guys, Jesus is Lord! Mother! was a strange movie, and I didn’t think I’d ever find anything stranger. But don’t misunderstand. Not that I’d watch it again any time soon, but Mother! actually made a little sense to me. THIS FILM?! No. This film is creepy as all heck! I still don’t understand why I powered through it. I should have just stopped watching it when realised it was more than I could take. Continue reading “MidSommar | My Take.”

Okja | My Take.

I don’t actually know what to say right now. I’m caught between wishing I never saw this movie and actually appreciating some pretty great storytelling. I’m too upset to write right now, actually. I’ll do this tomorrow.

Okay, it’s not tomorrow. It’s been a few days, actually, and I was hoping to pretend I never saw this film. Alas, I must write, because someone is actually waiting for this review! Continue reading “Okja | My Take.”

KINDNESS IS FREE

“Be kind. Always. And never let your pride get the best of situations.” There’s a lot I’d quote from this post, but it would be overkill. I really, really resonate with this. There’s not much kindness left in the world these days, but I’ve noticed that when I’m kind to someone, it’s like a floodgate of their own kindness gets released. It’s as if they’re itching to be kind too, but just don’t know how or when. Your cue is all they need. So be kind always. And if you don’t get kindness in return, Someone’s keeping score, and when it comes time to settle, you’ll be fully covered!
Hope you enjoy is as much as I have.

“My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.” ~ Maya Angelou

How perfect are these words for so many moments in life?😊

What would you do if you found out that you only had 3 months to live and that there was no known cure? Would you scream? Would you collapse on the floor, break down and cry? Would any words ever be enough to offer even the smallest bit of consolation? Everyday, people around the world are fighting battles we know nothing about, in spite of all their suffering, all their anger, sadness and fear, they get up and somehow, they face the day. That’s a special kind of bravery, and in my books, a special kind of Heroism.
