Wanted!

I watched the new movie Wanted on Friday. Yeah, I know Angelina Jolie is easy on the eyes but that has nothing to do with why I went to see it. I've mentioned before that I love the action packed movies that keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. What I loved most about this movie was the twists and turns in the story. Things are not always as they appear, and this truth was revealed time and time again in the movie. I won't reveal specifics so that I don't spoil it for those of you who are planning a 'date night' to see the movie.

Suffice it to say that it is definitely worth seeing (I'm not endorsing it for everyone), and it will no doubt get you thinking about a number of things such as: When you find yourself living in the mundane drudgery of everyday life, do you ever stop to think that all of that is just preparation for something infinitely bigger? Sometimes, in real life, things are not always as they appear, whether that be a negative doctor's report, a deal that fell through, or even a relationship gone sour. There is something much deeper than what you can see, and the only way to draw it out is to endure until the end.

this movie was awesome. besides jolie's tattoos looking fantastic (real and fake)- she actually played a very an important role....that one person who understood the heart of the "code" and followed it through.

and your right- it gets me thinking, motivated and inspired to not allow the status quo to define me, but the truth about who i am and what i'm made to do...which will always have twists and turns.

And that's where hope comes in. Looking to something, clinging to something that always works out for the best. Yes - hope.
