All Powerful

Just watched the trailer of【127 Hours】on youtube, at the end, it says: There is no force on earth more powerful than the will to live.

I know it's meant to be inspiring, but, really? There is no force on earth more powerful than the will to live?

I don't think so.

Yes, the will to live IS powerful, it could drive one to do incredible things, it could do miracles, sure.

But there are also fools like me, who would not think twice about throwing our lives away for the ones we love.

The moment love knocks on your door, your life only comes in second. Nothing in all the universe could stop that feeling, and there's no price you won't pay, including your dear life.

So, sorry, I have to disagree on this one.

The movie is based on extraordinary real-life story of a mountaineer who amputated his own arm to free himself after being trapped from a boulder that pinned him for five days. So it must be inspiring, but I don't feel like watching it in theatre. Maybe it's just me, but the idea of watching somebody struggle and strive just to stay alive when a series of mishap befall him isn't that entertaining when I'm trapped in the cinema. So maybe I'll get the DVD when it's released.

Life is beautiful. I might get lost sometimes, might feel miserable or depressed, but I never take it for granted, coz I know damn well that not all of us could live to see yet another sunrise. I guess I'm lucky, coz I enjoy and appreciate many simple things in life, like that feeling of warmth as the sun washes over me, like the clear blue sky, the soothing sea, or simply sipping ice tea reading a novel on Saturday morning.

If only you could open your mind and enjoy what you see, life could be beautiful.
