Up in the air.... - Post 2

I am kind of person who rarely give rating 1star or even 2stars Some had argued with me for not supporting them in saying 'Gosh this movie was horrible... I bet all whole unit didn't had anything to do so they all met and ended up with a movie and made sure they S@#K two hours of our life... At that moment I avoid commenting as I would have already rated the movie 3 sparking stars not those Swarovski one glittering on top of Rockefeller Christmas Tree

Coming back to the movie..
I happen to watch 'Up In the Air' and I say that 'George Clooney' plays the perfect roles of 'Ryan Bingham' who Job Roles requires him 'Passing the Bitter News - You are Fired’, as employers scare to convey the news' So his job and pay flourishes when there’s recession.

It is one such movie that make me think on few of the question which linger over us at times
Let’s spend some time and think few pointers:
- Can I do better then what I am doing
- Am I following my dreams?
- Will I be having the same approach as I had today of will I have a new game plan, so end up with better results today or tomorrow or say even next month.

I am not asking you to quit, neither am I quitting, but thinking on this lines might help strike a new chord generating a new music that you heart might love to hear, and you might find the reason, to be go getter.

I have quoted couple of things from the movie, which i loved the most.

Ryan Bingham, while he is trying to convince Jim, who was turned cold fĂȘted on the day of marriage, Ryan ask his following question:
Ryan: Try recalling your favorite memories, the most important moments in your life. Were you alone?
Jim: No, I guess not.
Ryan: Life's better with company.
Jim: Yeah...
Ryan: Everybody needs a co-pilot.

Another one, while Ryan Bingham on one of this inspiration speech:
How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you're carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life... you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knickknacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV... the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home... I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office... and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other to live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are shark
