Game Of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage has a powerful message on life and dreams.
In his 20’s he had a regular office job and dreamed of being an actor. But like many of us, logic stepped in and said that acting is not a reliable job. So he worked at his 9-5 job and dreamed of the day that he would be an actor.
Then at age 29, he made a decision. He decided to go after what he wanted instead just dreaming about it.
The message I get from his story is that it is ok to go after what we want. Is it scary? Of course. Does it bring a large amount of uncertainty to our lives? Yes.
But at the same time, living our authentic lives and doing what we want to do instead of doing what we need to do is sometimes the only way to live.
Last year, when Donald Trump announced that he was joining the race for the 2016 Presidential Election, many of us might have taken it as a joke or another publicity stunt.
Fast forward to today and it is no longer a joke. I don’t know who I am voting for, but I do know that I would be very nervous for the future of this country if we referred to him as Mr. President.
Some very smart person has taken clips from Trump’s speeches and added him into Game Of Thrones. It illustrates why this man is not the right person to lead this country.
The new live action Cinderella trailer was released today.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the cast includes Lily James, Sophie McShera (Downton Abbbey), Richard Madden (Game Of Thrones) and Cate Blanchett.
While I am not a fan of the animated Disney Cinderella, if the movie is anything like the trailer, there is a good chance I may see it.
