The following trailer for V for Vendetta, the movie, isn't the official one, but a newly inspired version. I wanted to talk about this movie as it applies to not only the world today but in a new way as you watch it hopefully again.
It's not about the action or the politics or the frighteningly accurate portrayal of events taking place in our world today that is the focus of this review.
Rather, it is the journey - after all that is the point to our lives, yes?
Evie's journey in particular. She begins living a very small and confined life until one day she steps out beyond the boundaries of what is considered safe in her world.
Yes, there are many prices she then has to pay. None of which she could have predicted. None of which she most likely would have signed up for had she known they were coming.
But in the end, would she ever go back to life before as she knew it?
Would you had you taken her journey?
Most of us will not have such a dramatic series of events to shake us loose from our fears and the limits those fears place on our lives, our freedom.
But we all have the opportunity to break free from our fears and live a life that is with out limits.
It isn't easy. It is worth it.
As you watch this movie I invite you to consider these questions:
Comfort and safety are not the true purpose of our life. But leaving them behind is never easy and sometimes life does the choosing for us. It is up to you to decide what will come of those moments.
Evie did. Will you?
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
