The Secret life of Walter Mitty

I thought I'd take time out to give Thanks to the people responsible for the movie The Secret life of Walter Mitty. During the dark days of last year this movie lifted my spirits and gave me that all important gift that people who are down need, Hope.

Kinda weird really, I think it's because I could relate to what the character of Ben Stiller was going through. He was losing his job and there was a huge wave of change happening in his life that was hard to accept.

One of the things that make a movie great and meaningful is how it affects you and makes you relate on a personal level. With The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I looked past the funny scenes and saw clearly through the central theme, which was the fear of change that was affecting his character and me at the same time.

I didn't lose my job like Walter Mitty, but there was a huge amount of change happening in my life that really blasted me out of my comfort zone. So far the rumblings haven't settled yet but the important thing for me is to follow what Walt Disney said and to Keep Moving Forward. The key thing is to accept the change and to adapt to it.
