Spoiler Alert


We went to see GREEN BOOK at the cinema last night

I’d been recommended to go multiple times by friends and seeing the trailer, I thought it looked pretty decent

We managed to find the time, leaving our puppy for the first time and trying not to worry about her crying (she was, of course, absolutely fine and didn’t even miss us ;-) )

The movie is about a genius musician in the 1960’s who embarked upon a tour of the deep south in America

The movie followed him and his Italian American driver who he hired to protect him and keep them out of trouble

The movie was funny, and eye opening, and sad and heart breaking….all in one

I do love a movie like that, something that really gets to you and makes you think!

The reason that the musician needed protection, was that he is Black….. and in the 1960’s…..that wasn’t OK in the deep south (and perhaps in many other places too!)

He was determined to do the tour, to expose people to his talent, educate them and get them to recognise that talent transcends colour, race, gender

At the time of his tour, he probably felt like he was fighting a losing battle

The number of occasions they encountered racism and prejudice was shocking (if not unsurprising, knowing how aspects of the deep south was/is!)

What he didn’t do, was give up

He had something important to fight for

He had a message that he wanted to send

And he wanted to make a difference

Bit by bit

State by state

Person by person

He kept going because it meant something to him

The message that I want you to take from this today is that if you have something that means a lot to you….

Then you may have to fight for it, to get what you want

Nothing in this life that is worth having, comes easy

As we age

As we decline (which is inevitable!)

It will get HARDER

You may come up against poor attitudes of other people

You may come up against resistance to change from your family and friends

But you have to break free of this, and work out WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU

Then make a plan, work on it, and keep going…..

Because the end game is WORTH IT

The results, and outcomes MEAN A LOT to you!

Does that make sense?

If you’re still feeling a bit stuck….
