Wild is one of those movies that really stresses the importance of having a definite major purpose, a positive mental attitude, a plan expressed in continued action, and a mastermind alliance. Because without either one of these, I’m wondering if Cheryl would have ever finished her trek across the Pacific Crest Rim. (I mean she really did have every reason to quit and go back home, didn’t she?)
Without a burning desire to finish the hike, what would have happened when she lost her boot down the side of the mountain?
Without a plan expressed in continued action, what would have happened when she got to the empty water tank?
Without a positive mental attitude, what would have happened when she kept reliving how mean and nasty she behaved towards her mother when she was alive?
And without a mastermind alliance, who would have been there to cheer her on and support her whenever the going got tough? (Which we know for a fact that it did.)
Seeing the movie really helped shed a light on everything we’ve been taught up until this moment.
Because I was able to see those 4 tiny major habits being played out on the big screen, that’s why.
I’d happily give this film a 9 with hopes that someone else out there watches it and gets “something” from it.
