Hello, Beautiful People!
There's no greater feeling than being truly inspired. Dr. King once said, " An unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality." The movie Hidden Figures is a true story about a group of African-American women Katherine Johnson, Dorthy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson. Despite the mounting odds they were up against in America's 1960's. They stayed focus on their dreams. Some parts collective and some parts individual. However, the main focus was a united vision to put a man in orbit. Then eventually to the moon to solidify our (America) place in the world. I was in complete admiration after watching this film. The tenacity, willpower, and drive these women possessed was ah-mazing! Do you know who much perpetual optimism it takes to put a man on the moon? I would imagine it is the same perpetual optimism that propelled these women to compromise notoriety, recognition in order to achieve greatness. Personally, I think Dr. King put this into context better than other people I've read about.
“Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The shared perpetual optimism these ladies exhibited. Now have an opportunity to multiply as Colin Powell exclaimed. The force of optimism that exuded from this film undoubtedly will have a lasting impact on all that view it.
I hope today you made the choice to choose optimism. There are some obstacles in life that are more or less greater than the ones Katherine, Dorthy, and Mary faced. The only difference is they chose to be more than optimistic. They chose perpetual optimism!
What choice will you make? Optimism or Perpetual Optimism
Until next time...Be (you decide)!
