Lessons from Catwoman
The summer affords me too much time. Some time is devoted to the craft of creating art. Some is devoted to trying all flavors of Ben & Jerry's. Some time is given to creating a blog. Other time is devoted to watching movies that I would never watch. I decided to give Catwoman, some of my totally unproductive summer minutes. I was surprised to learn something. Here are the lessons: 1. There is a contented self and a dormant self. 2. Your dormant self is waiting to be presented to the world. 3. The dormant self will have the most fulfilling life. 4. I need a catsuit(forgive me as I digress). 5. Change your style. 6. Live a life that helps humankind. 7.You have to balance your personalities. The most important lesson learned was a revelation. At the end of the movie, Catwoman said,"You have to die to live." In other words, you have to kill that little scared, non-risk taking, and contented being that hates to make waves. Only when you become fearless in your pursuit of life, will you get the most out of it. Meow!
