I watched two movies during the Easter holiday. Two different stories and styles but brought out the same topic:
Why to Live? 生命嘅意義何在?
In the story of Soul, the body and soul of Joe are accidentally separated and eventually entered the Great Before. Joe used various ways in order to get back to his body until he met the cynical soul no. 22 - he got the insight in life all of a sudden!
Joe and no. 22 represents two different lifestyles: Joe always dream of developing a career in the jazz industry in order to change his boring life while he had been ignoring other chances being offered to him. Joe wasted lots of time in life in which he could have enjoyed. No. 22, on the other hand, fears to the unknown future. Without a so-called "dream" in life, no. 22 would rather escaping from the reality than facing it.
What will you do if you have an additional second in life? In One Second Champion, CHOW Tin Yan has one second more than others but he didn't make good use of it. As afraid of losing, CHOW used to live a life with endless excuses and escape from the reality, until he starts boxing. He has gone through a tough training process which brought him the new insight that Roman wasn't built in a day. It is very important to try the best to win. In the final match, CHOW strived his best to win although he was unable to fight because he found the true happiness through striving to win even if he finally loses. In contrast, if we finish everything by luck or without trying our best, we might unwilling to accept the lost.
Many people choose to be quitters due to their fear of lost, some others not even have the courage to start what they wished to do and causing them to lost the chances of gaining those things... Do you have something you dream of? If so, would it be earning more money, getting married, giving birth, becoming a boss, or owning a flat...? Whatever your dream is for yourselves or others, the most most most important thing is to enjoy doing it and not only focus on the result! Enjoy every moment that life offers you, because only by doing so, everything you do becomes meaningful!
我哋好多時會因為怕受傷怕輸而選擇半途而廢，甚至未開始已經退縮，放棄咗一啲本來可以得到嘅嘢... 你有無人生夢想呢？有嘅話，會係賺好多錢、結婚、生仔、做老闆、有層樓...？ 無論你嘅理想人生係為咗其他人定係自己，要記得最最最重要(重要嘅說話要講三次)係做得開心，同埋唔好只顧結果，好好享受生命給予你嘅每一刻。因為只有你享受個過程，你做緊嘅每樣嘢先變得有意義!
