Hadn't been to the movies in a while and decided this weekend to see what all the hub-bub was about regarding the King's Speech. The theater was still a packed house, Guess I wasn't the only late-comer to view this Oscar winning flick. My girlfriend and arrived a little late (ok, so it was the popcorn line that did it) and had to revert to the neck-breaking 2nd row from the screen.
I always seem to lose myself in the movie characters..you know try to take on their identities and pretend that I'm on the screen too. For me, the movie wasn't about the King's stuttering, but all about overcoming a fear. Gosh, doesn't that sound familiar?
Hmmm..... overcoming the stuff that people told us when we were younger. I realized how wasteful it is to be stuck in a spirit or a mindset that's really not ours, but someone else's. Eleanor Roosevelt once said something like: No one can make use feel inferior unless we give them permission. Always loved that quote because it reminds me of the power I have to accept or dismiss someone's opinion of me.
The King triumphed in the end, developed the confidence and courage to do what he had never been able to. Wow! What a lesson. If you haven't seen it already, it's a must-do in our book. I left the theater refreshed. My girlfriend did too after nearly 2 hours of snoring in her seat.
