Man On Wire is Awe-inspiring!

Have you ever dreamed about something so big and impossible that you scared yourself?

Philippe dreams about walking a wire, not just anywhere but between 2 of the highest buildings at the time, The World Trade Center. A dream that started with the seed of an idea in a dentist's waiting room, years in the making and planning, till that fateful day to realise it.
"On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman called Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire suspended between New York's twin towers, then the world’s tallest buildings. After dancing on the wire, with no safety net or harness, he was arrested."
It's a movie about a man's dream, aspirations, drive and courage, with a very thin line between life and death. Where the fear would make most of us run a mile, if not across the entire country - this passion drove one man forward to always do what he wanted.

His team were along for the ride and to support him in achieving it. It must have been an exciting adventure that you can only imagine being part of. "The plan was illegal but not wicked or mean" was the justification they all used to allow it to become reality. It just makes you wonder how one man could do this without regard for the consequences - but to him, failure was not even an option, how could it be!
"the tasks they faced seemed virtually insurmountable: they would have to find a way to bypass the WTC's security; to smuggle the wire and rigging equipment into the towers; to suspend the wire between the two towers; to secure the wire at the correct tension to withstand the winds and the swaying of the buildings; to rig it secretly by night – all without being caught. Not to mention the walk itself..."

This documentary shows the amazing build up from wire walking at Paris's Notre Dame Cathedral, then Sydney's Harbour Bridge to the WTC. The friends and team involved and the human dynamics and emotion behind such a stunt. It leaves you wondering if it really was real. I couldn't pull myself away until the end... This film was more awe-inspiring than putting man on the moon. This was a man putting himself in space with just the power of his spirit.

The atmosphere and story-telling is as if you were there. You can feel the passion of the people involved, even thirty years later. It must have been amazing to have been a part of something so unbelievable and impossible that someone, somewhere thought it would be a walk in the park.

Do you have a dream that you've not plucked the courage together for yet? Watch this film to see what is possible with the human spirit when you chose to follow your dreams. Start building the foundations to your goals or join someone else's dream because it's better to try something and fail, than not to try and regret it for the rest of your life. Reach deep inside because if one person can do it, so can you. And remember it's teamwork that makes the Dream work!

Unless of course it involves great heights and gravity, then leave it to the professionals OR why not become one. I hear the view is beautiful... and the sky really is the limit. If you want something, nothing is impossible!

Man on Wire is a truly beautiful film and literally breathtaking to watch. An indie film from a British director that doesn't need a Hollywood studio to embellish it, as the truth speaks for itself and creates a unique must see real-life thriller! The best documentary I've seen in ages.

Season of goodwill...

Do you want a season of goodwill or a lifetime of joy and happiness?

Friends and family are for life, not just for Christmas. Although, at least you can choose your friends :-)

Your presence is the best present you can give to anyone.

Visit your family and go see friends. Give them a call or even send them a text, let them know you're thinking about them and care.

And the great thing is you can be nice to people and strangers all year round. So give a little love well into the new year and you will get so much more in return.

Someone, somewhere would love to share a moment with you. Make it count as time is precious.
2008 was over in a flash, make sure 2009 is more memorable and worthwhile.

Make a difference and be the change you wish to see around you, as it is the only thing that really matters!

Have a very merry Christmas and an even better New Year! Take the happiness, joy and smiles into 2009.

Best wishes and hoping you attract into your life all that you deserve,

YES Man - should you say Yes?

Is it good to say YES to every opportunity that comes along in life?

This is the only film I've ever been to see at the cinema and left with sticky pants! Nothing to do with the movie, just the waffle and Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream that exploded in my lap. Anyway...

Based on the book YES Man by Danny Wallace.
"I, Danny Wallace, being of sound mind and body, do hereby write this manifesto for my life. I swear I will be more open to opportunity. I swear I will live my life taking every available chance. I will say Yes to every favour, request, suggestion and invitation. I will swear to say yes where once i would say no."

“Yes Man stars Jim Carrey as Carl Allen, a man who signs up for a self-help program based on one simple principle: say 'yes' to everything...and anything. At first, unleashing the power of yes transforms Carl’s life in amazing and unexpected ways, but he soon discovers that opening up his life to endless possibilities can have its drawbacks."
In the film, Jim Carrey's character always says No and makes excuses not to do anything! A friend suggests he goes to a Yes Seminar - this will scare anyone who's never been to a personal development event but it is hilarious if you have. I nearly jumped up and down in the cinema, lol!
He leaves the seminar with a promise to himself, a covenant to say Yes to every opportunity that comes his way. This actually opens his life up to doing more instead of the same old stuff every day.

It works really well for him and you are just waiting for the catch. It finally comes and in true Hollywood style, he works his way through it, leaving you rooting for the hero of the film. Lots of interesting situations crop up and the majority of them will leave you laughing so hard and wondering if you can out do him.

Should you go and see this film? Do you remember what the man from Del Monte says? He says, Yes! :-)


I've been on a pretty good Yes streak myself for the last year and wouldn't change it for anything. Saying Yes to opportunity opens up whole new world's that would have been left unexplored otherwise. The places I've been, parties I've attended and wonderful people I've met - all because I said Yes, where I may have said no before. Friends who have been on the journey with me and met along the way will testify to this.

I don't indiscriminately say Yes to anything, just what I WANT to do and feels right and/or possibly fun. And it always works out for the best. Though I am going to have to cut back in the New Year, as time constraints mean too many things to do take the focus off being good at fewer things by doing less.

Just say No!?

It's not only about saying Yes over No. After all, your life is all about what you choose to say No to as well. The stone is chiseled and pieces removed, what is left is the finished sculpture. The statue wouldn't be so beautiful if the sculptor didn't know which pieces to take away.

The same applies to your life. Know what to say Yes to and be open-minded and also know that it is okay to say No as well; to things you don't want or need in your life.

Have you ever said No to opportunities that could have put you on a different path? Maybe you should now say YES to Life! Try it - it may be fun and who knows where synchronicity will take you.

You can start by going to watch this film with a couple of friends and having a good night out. The rest of your new life starts with a little Yes!

Take Time to Dance Slow

"Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round, or listened to rain slapping the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight, or gazed at the sun fading into the night?

You better slow down, don't dance so fast, time is short, the music won't last.

Do you run through each day on the fly, when you ask "How are you?", do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed, with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You better slow down, don't dance so fast, time is short, the music won't last.

Ever told your child, we'll do it tomorrow, and in your haste, not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, let a friendship die, 'cause you never had time to call and say hi?

You better slow down, don't dance so fast, time is short, the music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere, you miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day, it's like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life isn't a race, so take it slower, hear the music before your song is over."

- by David L. Weatherford
