Movies move us. They empower, makes us think, fuel our conversations and allow us to escape, even if for just a brief while, to a place where everything is possible. I have compiled a list of 5 powerful and emotional movies, you should truly take the time to watch, at least once.

1. Thelma And Louise


What is it about?
Two women break free from a chained, small live by going on a Road trip with unforeseen and dramatic consequences

Why should you watch it?
Because it is one of the best showcases of the deep friendship between two women. And because Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are
amazing in bringing this connection to live.

2. Alien


What is it about?
On their voyage home, the crew of the deepspace tug Nostromo investigate an alien distress signal, inadvertently picking up and bringing aboard an extraterrestrial life form with violent and lethal survival instincts

Why should you watch it?
Because Sigourney Weaver’s powerful performance as Sergeant Ripley showcased the strength of a woman in a physical demanding leading role.

3. Kill Bill vol. I

Because Uma Thurman’s Martial Art skills are amazing

4. Million Dollar Baby


What is it about?
A young female boxer, Maggie (played by Hillary Swank) fights for her dream to make it big in her field, supported by a rough around
the edges trainer, portrait by Clint Eastwood.

Why should you watch it?
Because this story could have been made overly sentimental, and cliche but Clint Eastwood as a director managed to give it real heart, even if it leaves you sobbing at the end.

5. Coco Before Chanel


What is it about?
The portrait of a woman (Coco Chanel)  who fought herself from poverty to become an icon in the fashion industry and beyond.

The Magic by Rhonda Byrnes – A Review

The Magic - A Book Review

Title: The Magic

Author: Rhonda Byrnes

Publisher: Atria

Rating: 5/5 Stars

 

Gratitude, the practice of true gratitude, not a simple uttering of thank you’s, but a deep emotional connection to the subject matter can have a profound effect on a life. True gratitude reduces stress, allows us to focus on the abundance that is already in our lives, and gives us a chance to let go off fear. From this state of gratitude we can heal, we can attract, we can experience more to be grateful for.

The Magic by Rhonda Byrnes (the author of The Secret) holds within it a vast variety of techniques and themes that help us focus our gratitude, and allows the reader to make it a daily practice. Set in daily assignments, that are easy to follow, yet profound, this book asks you to practice, not just read your way through.

I highly recommend this book, even more so than the Secret, because it contains the true key to using it in the first place. Finding a place of gratitude brings happiness, no matter where you are at the moment, or at least a moment of peace, from which the reader can attract more. If you are interesting working with Law of Attraction, this is where you need to start – not with all of the principles, the quotes and promises, but with it’s most important principle – Gratitude.
