first and foremost
deepest gratitude to the lecturers from personal & professional development module
for choosing this AMAZING story for us to watched
dont know bout others
but it taught me ALOT!!
*even though didnt manage to watched it till the very end due to time constraint*
since, i wont be able to attend SGD 5 next week as i had to attend Gerai Klinikal Pesta Konvo
i think it should be fair enough to share my thoughts here =D
The Pursuit of HappYness
as a whole
this movie is an inspiring one
filled with thoughts to ponder
and experiences to be made example
"It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happYness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happYness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it? No matter what. How did he know that?"
Will Smith as Chris Gardner
i spent some time lingering on this sentence that i quoted from the movie
especially the bolded text
is it true??
or is it just the way a person felt when happYness isnt around??
as a person
i think that everything that we said or do or even thought
depends on ourselves
some may think that happYness is something that cant even be touched by human
but others might think differently, thus strive to create a path towards it and eventually reached there
but before pursuing the happYness
do we ask ourselves, what really does make us happy?
happYness is a very subjective matter
different individuals may define it differently
but what does bring us true and eternal happYness whereby it can act as a barrier for us in facing hardships??
does that kind happYness truly exist??
human learns from mistakes and experiences and pain
so did Mr Chris Gardner
we sometimes may feel that life isnt fair and seems to pushed us down
what we fail to realized is that those painful occurrences in life are what that makes us proceed in life
it is not wrong to cry or break down
but ask ourselves, till when??
are we going to stay beneath others forever??
p/s: i purposely left all happYness mispelled...just for fun!!~~
