This movie is about a family going through a hard time with the mom of the child leaving and the father is now left with raising the son on his own. With many struggles of not having a steady income him and his son are evicted out of their house. While living on the streets they start to loose hope but, the father remains to keep happy and positive. He worked his way to the top of wall street with determination and positivity he was able to provide a life for his son.
Finny's attitude is all revolved around being positive. By everyone knowing that the war is just around the corner, Finny's positivity gives him a sense of innocence and doesn't worry about it. He in fact calls the war fake for a long time and he knew it wasn't but, he does this because he has a positive attitude towards it which helps others around him just live in the moment and not worry about the war as much.
"Happiness comes from you. No one else can make you happy. You make you happy." This quote is my favorite one I have seen. It explains exactly how I feel about myself. No one else can make me happy only myself. It is a personal choice if we want to make our life better, we can choose to be happy or to not be and be miserable. Always choose to be happy.
"Don't waste a minute not being happy. If one window closes, run to the next window, or break down a door." If something terrible happens in your life happiness gives you the courage to keep going. Why waste a moment not being happy it does not make anything better in life.
Martin Luther King Jr is a perfect example of someone who never gives up because of his positivity. His fight for justice for the African American people shows he was determined for equality. They threw him in jail and still then he had enough positivity and determination for what he believed in. No matter how hard people tried to tare him down he would never back down. I have respect for his positivity and determination to have his voice heard for millions of people.
Unlike all of the other songs, this song shows the effect that a smile has on another person. He likes a girl and her smile makes him smile and allows him to like her more. A smile can go a mile just like positivity effects everyone elses mood. Postitivity goes a long way and is a very useful characteristic to have.
Unlike don't worry be happy, this song is more about always being happy. Like no matter how hard someone may try to get you in a bad mood it will never work because you are always happy. This mostly relates to my life because I truly am always happy. Very rarely do I ever get in a bad mood. Being happy makes every day life better and more eventful. So just be happy and do not let things bring you down.
This song is the perfect example of what the theme of me is. Bobby McFerrin wrote the words to give people hope when they are going through hard times. It is more about outside conflict and dealing with it by being happy. Whenever I listen to this song it makes me think about how what ever anyone is going through being positive will make it better. I instantly jam out to this song when it comes on. The lyric "cause when you worry your face will frown, and that will bring everybody down", is a proven fact that when you are down it puts everyone else around you in that mood also. So don't worry... just be happy.
Erin Gruwell was a fairly new teacher and was assigned the task of teaching underprivileged kids English. She decided to allow them to read books about more hard hitting topics that relate to the kids lives. By letting the kids read books that relate to their lives they engaged in the story and started to enjoy learning. The kids then found a respect for Ms. Gruwell and began to change their lives for the better. I appreciate her and her positiveness to help kids in need. Which is something I would love to do one day.
Drew Barrymore opened up about her life growing up stating "I didn't really have parents." Now since she has grown up and has two kids she took that pain and anger and made a deal with herself saying that she will never leave her kids like her parents did to her. She later stated "I think that being happy makes the biggest impact on your physical appearance." I admire her because she went through so much and could easily go down the wrong path but she overcame it and chose happiness and became a wonderful role model to me and many others.
