I was watching Disney’s UP late last night and I was blown away (pun intended) by the story. As always, animated movies never ceases to amaze me. There’s always a touch of magic and wonderment, a lesson learned here and there, and tear-jerking moments just around the corner.
There’s just something sweet about grumpy old men and how they perceive the world around them. No one is ever too old to start on a new adventure, and life’s adventure doesn’t need to be away from home. It begins from the little things,every single moment made memorable shared with people that make the ride worthwhile. Be it at the depths of the jungle wild, the spaciousness of the sky above, or just the comforts of your own place.
The spirit of adventure may be lost from time to time but is never completely gone. We may lose sight of what our dreams are because of day-to-day pressing concerns but it’s just hidden from plain sight waiting to be rekindled. All it needs is reinvigoration.
So for those who’s feeling down and looking for inspiration, for those looking for a feel good movie, a coming-of-age movie, I would suggest watching UP. It’s a good movie to share with your family as well.
