Strong, Beautiful and Extremely Powerful
I am one of those people who absolutely loves movies, from costumes to set design, to the stories themselves, movies have always inspired me. So when my boyfriend came home a few months ago with Maleficent to say I was ecstatic would be an understatement. Pulling inspiration from movies is one of the easiest ways we can motivate ourselves. Just this past weekend I was chatting with a friend of mine about how the book and movie Eat, Pray, Love inspired us to start our healing journey. I told her how after reading the book I went to see the movie and I can still remember the feeling I had as the credits started to roll by. I don't know what it was but by the time I was half way through with the movie I was in tears full of womanly admiration and felt a strong connection to the character. It may seem silly but try and think of a movie that when you watch it you get an overwhelming sense of happiness. You just get that feeling of excitement as the opening songs come on. That's how I feel with my favorite movies, especially Maleficent.
Maleficent embodies what we as women all go through, youth, insecurities, heartbreak, understanding, love and forgiveness, not to mention eventually motherhood in some form or another. Throughout the movie you follow her earning and growth and are taught the many lessons that life hands us. That is why I admire this film so much, it is a great one for women to pull inspiration from. I mean who wouldn't want to stand up in front of a bully in full black with green smoke all around them, talk about an impression. But in all seriousness, what is the real meaning of the movie? Maleficent is strong and beautiful, she was betrayed and broken hearted but with the help of her unwanted Godchild, Aurora, and her faithful crow, Maleficent was able to turn herself around.
