The lessons I learned from Forrest Gump

Today I watched Forrest Gump again and what a great movie it is. I was so emotional as I could connect with Forrest on so many levels. Growing up I always felt like to the underdog and I persevered like Forrest to achieve some success in my life. Now for the lessons:

  1. Honesty is the best policy – throughout the movie Forrest is always honest and even though people do take advantage of his honesty it builds his integrity as a person.
  2. Follow your heart – Forrest never gives up on his dreams and when he starts some new project he sees it through to the end.
  3. Help other people – while in Vietnam Forrest saves many of his fellow soldiers in a selfless act that wins in the Congregational Medal of Honour.
  4. Love unconditionally – Forrest loved his mother and Jenny unconditionally. He wins the love of Jenny in the end but he always gave more then he received.

I’m keen to hear what you liked about this great movie which won Tom Hanks his 2nd Best Actor Oscar.

Why Men Love Bitches by Sherry Argov

Why men love bitches by Sherry ArgovFrom Doormat to Dreamgirl-A Woman’s Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship

Contending that some women are “too nice,” comedian and radio show host Sherry Argov has written Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat to Dreamgirl-A Woman’s Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship. “I’m not recommending that a woman have an abrasive disposition,” Argov writes, “The woman I’m describing is kind yet strong. She doesn’t give up her life, and she won’t chase a man.” Her sassy book is filled with scenarios and advice aimed at making women subtly stronger and self-empowered. Argov’s principles, which range from the far fetched to the downright absurd, include “If you give him a feeling of power, he’ll want to protect you and he’ll want to give you the world” and “A little distance combined with the appearance of self-control makes him nervous that he may be losing you.” The book, which has already been featured on The View and The O’Reilly Factor, should make waves with its controversial view of relationships.
