As quoted from the movie, Blade Runner 2049
The right cause.
What is the right cause for you?
I know what it is for me and I’ll share to help open up your thinking.
I have always loved movies. What’s the saying? art mimics life.
I studied film through university. I have something to say about every film and movie I watch.
Blade runner the Original was one the movies we had to study as part of our film study. I don’t remember exactly everything but I remember the movie. Movies evoke a feeling within you. If they’re made well you wont need to think about the dialogue and the scripting it will feel like you are just sharing a moment in the movie.
This is just like what your life is like. The difference is in a movie you’ll hear the hero’s journey. You’ll hear their inner voice.
Hold on you can hear your own inner voice too! You know the one. It’s the one that makes decisions about everything that is going on, everything it sees and everything it hears.
Just think that your whole life has been a series of vignettes, or Aha! Moments or epiphanys!!!! Just like the ones you see in the movies.
Can you see your life flash before you? Can you recognise those pivotal life changing moments that made you say yes, I am the right version of myself, a human being able to take on any challenge, hurdle or barrier...
Can I recognise what made the difference for me in those moments? For example, in late 2018 I required unexpected and urgent medical attention. Surgery soon followed and I asked myself is this it? After that I vowed to never ever let anything get in my way of the privilege of life. This was another element of my why adding to my already strong why:
In 2007, I found my cause, my why, my purpose in life, that is to honour my heritage and ancestors. I had an experiential epiphany. A moment where I got to personally feel connected to the sacrifices and struggles my grandparents made for our lives. I vowed to honour my heritage and live my life in a way that would make my grandparents proud of me.
Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
