OMG! Where have I been hiding all? Or perhaps why have I not heard about this amazing and totally realistic movie? It totally resonates my current life right now. Plus both of these ladies depicts real life scenarios of both the struggles of life especially trying to find something that would make you feel worthy. I really love how Julia is quite optimistic amidst some blatant judgmental looks or comments thrown her way. She basically lives her life to the fullest and is not afraid to try something new. She made me aspire to be her when she enrolled and even succeeded in being the best student at Le Cordon Blue! This is during a time that a woman chef does not seem to be looked favourably. Plus her amazing husband totally supports her sometime outlandish ideas! It does remind me somewhat of my dear husband who is quite supportive of my dreams and do work quite hard to make it a reality. He even does put my dreams first before his very own which makes me very thankful though a bit sad at the same time.
Julie on the other hand does particularly mirrors what I am doing at this very moment. She is quite tired of her daily life and needs something to make her life exciting, hence the blog. I am the same way. Though she is totally better than me since she made a deadline and completed it. I do have these long absences in writing. Life gets in the way and sometimes I just do not know how to properly organize my jumbling thoughts into a coherent blog piece. It does also seem like Julie is experiencing a crossroad in her life that made her want to do something that she had not done before just like I have not really published my thoughts before as well…
This movie both aspires and touches me to the core. It totally made me reflect on my current reality and future endeavours that I wish to accomplish. I have found two amazing women to look up to and aspire.
What movies has touched you to your core? Please share your thoughts and do give me an advice on how to stay on top of my writing. THANK YOU!
