One Of Life's Most Important Qualities Is...

Resilience. 

Meryl Streep said:  "This was me on my way home from an audition for King Kong where I was told I was too “ugly” for the part. This was a pivotal moment for me. This one rogue opinion could derail my dreams of becoming an actress or force me to pull myself up by the boot straps and believe in myself. I took a deep breath and said “I’m sorry you think I’m too ugly for your film but you’re just one opinion in a sea of thousands and I’m off to find a kinder tide.”

Today Meryl Streep has 18 Academy Awards.

Moral: Never ever give up on your dreams. Only you know your true worth.

Jack Reacher - Starts 2013 With A Bang!

If there is one type of movie I absolutely love it's one that has mystery, romance, a chase, a twist, drama and a good old fashioned message.  Well, Tom Cruise is great in "Jack Reacher".  He may not be everything people who have read Lee Child's book series of the same name expect, but he certainly has presence. Watch the trailer below and you get just a little taste of the excitement.
