Just completed watching the Pursuit of Happyness produced by Will Smith. It was one of those films for me like Paying It Forward. Relating to real life issues and what if scenarios. Except this was more about how life is when you’re living by the end of your wallet, with a son to care and what it takes for you to become happy.
It’s difficult to imagine what it would be like to lose all of what you have, when you only had a quarter of what you may have wanted.
This film to me delivered an important lesson that money (as much as we hate it at times) makes the world work. Without money, you’ve no roof over your head, you’re constantly stressed tomorrow, you’d almost do anything to make amends and it pushes you to your limits.
I know my parents have worked hard. I feel terrible having to still need their support. I worry about whether what I earn is enough. And when I was watching Chris Gardner, my only thought was “I never want to be in that situation”.
In our economical condition, where properties are through the roof, children are spending more than saving, both parents are forced to work and many graduates say it’s tough looking for a job, what would our children’s future be if we don’t start now.
Change is good. Good change is for the better.
Do you know what change is better for you?
