iheartfilm is dedicating the month of November to the lesson of Gratitude in films; the quality of being thankful.
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986) is my next pick and this is the reason why:
Ferris Bueller gets the meaning of life. He’s the type of person who lives in the moment and shows gratitude every day for his life and the endless adventures that it holds. He squeezes every last drop of living, is grateful for it and is always thirsty for more!
He loves his girlfriend Sloane and best pal Cameron, who’s his complete opposite, and wants desperately to breathe life into him and show how great each day can be, despite Cameron’s tempestuous relationship with his father.
I love this kid! To him, there are no limits, only incredible possibilities!
