In most movies, it is most of the times, males are the heros, saving the day etc. Enough of heros for a while, females can be brave and adventurous as well, just like the upcoming movie, Disney • Pixar’s BRAVE.
I believe everyone has a heroine in their life. She is the person who affects and impacts on your life. So, who is your heroine?
My heroine in my life has got to be...
I think a mother's love is one of the greatest love anyone can receive. (Perhaps it is because I am a Cancerian and a Cancer woman is a loving mum. LOL)
Well, one of the bravest thing my mother did is to give birth to me. Can you imagine a woman having a baby for nine months? I mean the baby actually disrupts a woman's life and she has to sacrfice lots of thing for the baby. The great love.
And what about giving birth with lots of pain in a few hours? Nope, if you don't have a baby, you don't know how pain that is. Neither do I. But the thought of it actually makes me think that the pain is unbearable. I think for the love of the baby/child, any woman will go through this 'torture'.
In that few hours of giving birth, anything could have happened. Nothing is 100% accurate. Everything has its own risk. Lots of blood lost in the process could have resulted in death *touchwood*. Well, we survived. Thanks to my mum's perserverance. That's why I believe that very moment is one of her bravest act to me.
Having a child is definitely not easy. Watching me cry, eat, sleep and grow up, I believe to my parents, it is a sense of satisfaction. So I told myself that I need to filial to both of them, for what they have sacrificed and provided for me.
We are our parents' blood. They wouldn't want us to turn bad and destroy our future. "You only live once." But in certain situations, we do not wish that our parents interfere with our future too much that our future turns out to be one that we do not like/wish to have.
After all, this is our own life. It is between chasing after what you dream/want and doing what your parents want you to do. Not so much in my case, but there should be a balance.
But in BRAVE, Merida chose to go against tradition and choose a fate of her own! “If you had the chance to change your fate, would you?”
Well, I think I would. I might say I would now, but who can really predict the future?
