A Life Lesson from Groundhog’s Day!

Did you watch the movie last night? I caught it on its final cycle and remembered why I love it so. It is a timeless movie: well written, well cast and just plain funny!

The central character is a grumpy, ego-centric, curmudgeon named Phil (Bill Murray not the groundhog) who finds himself caught in the nightmare of repeating the same day over and over again. No matter what he does, he wakes up at 6:00 am to find himself right where he started the day before. The entire movie is spent watching Phil’s reaction to this phenomenon and how he is changed by it.

It is when Phil Connors has the epiphany that he is truly happy with himself and his life as it is “now” and does not care about tomorrow, only then is he allowed to move forward.

Are you happy? Are you living in the “now” or are you waiting for your life to happen to you some day down the road? 

What will you find tomorrow when your alarm goes off and your day begins. Will it be different or just a repeat of the same?

If you love what you have today, then you will have it again. If not, only “you” can decide to be happy and discover a new day.

Don’t you love it when Hollywood gives us a postive message for a change?
