Soul Surfer


(Dress: Plastic Island, Belt: H&M, Shoes: Diesel, Earrings: Betsey Johnson, Clutch:Thrifted, Hair flower: F21)


If there's someone I can call my modern-day hero, it would be Bethany Hamilton. Her incredible survivor story is brought to the big screen in a most incredibly moving and beautiful way. What was so amazing to me was the way she reacted to her situation. Never once did she whine and complain, or make things easy on herself; she only moved ahead to achieve her goal of becoming a pro surfer, even though she only had one arm. If you haven't already, I highly encourage you to go see Soul Surfer. Undoubtedly you will find something to take away that can encourage and motivate you to persevere no matter the circumstances. 

Two quotes from the movie have stuck with me over the past days, so much so that I just have to share them with you.

"I don't need easy; I just need possible."

"Courage doesn't mean you don't get afraid. Courage means you don't let fear stop you."

--Bethany Hamilton



What an encouragement she is to so many people today. I hope you too will go and be inspired by her captivating story, (oh and the beautiful setting of Kauai isn't so terrible to look at either!!) and if you have seen it, what were your thoughts? 

Have a fantastic week!

Blessings,

Candice

For two weeks now, my movie plans have been foiled by 'life' obligations, but I absolutely cannot wait to see it. I've heard great reviews and look forward to seeing Bethany (also my modern-day heroine!) conquer. :)

'Looking mighty cute as always, my friend!
