“Walter Mitty: To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” - James Thurber
Sometimes I wakeup and feel completely inspired and ready for the day. Other days I feel I need a quick kick to the gut to get motivated. One of my favorite movies to get me out of my creative rut is, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. There are so many things about this movie that get my creative juices flowing. Being shot on film, colour grading, story line, location, music, quotes, etc.
There is a scene in the movie where he finally let’s go of his past (Stretch Armstrong, google it if you don’t know what that is) and trades it for a longboard. He then straps two smooth stones to his hands and goes speeding down switchbacks towards a volcano. This scene in particular is really inspiring to me. How many times do we hold on to our past, then wonder why we can never have a breakthrough in our lives? Let go of our routine and get out of our comfort zone. You might be surprised by what you find.
