It’s Your Life – Own It!

It is your life. You are the one that breathes in and out of your body every day. You are the one who should be choosing what you plan to do with it, or are doing with it. Are you?

In the following movie clip from Aliens the heroine “Ripley” definitely encounters more things than we can ever imagine having to cope with in our lives.

But there is a point here. When something needs to be done. She does it. She makes the decision she needs to make and makes them count! It’s worth a reminder.

We may not be facing aliens but every day we face all sorts of things to be dealt with. Our choices, our life. Decide and then make it happen. It is your life, go for it!

In the mean time enjoy probably the greatest sci-fi heroine ever! And yes, she definitely owns her life!


Thanks for visiting me, I hope you have a great week,

~ Penny

  2. Awesome film – and you like Blade Runner too?! Have I ever told you how much I love you, Penny?

    Now, in single words, tell me only the good things that come to mind about… your mother…

    Have a better one πŸ˜‰

      • It was my favourite too, for the longest time. I can’t say that now because I think The Dark Knight ties for first place now LOL

        Blade Runner was actually one of three DVD’s I bought when I first got a DVD player – the other two were The Matrix (just because it’s cool and it had a ton of extras) and Ghostbusters (because it was a highly rated DVD and I liked the movie)

        There are a *lot* of subtle layers in Blade Runner that I love and that only reveal themselves upon repeated viewings… like the eye motif and the fact that the replicants really are “more human than human”…

        …and seriously, Ridley Scott has an amazing talent for creating totally immersive worlds. Not just Blade Runner, Alien and Prometheus, but also films like Gladiator πŸ™‚

        Have you seen the Workprint? Or the 2 hour Dangerous Days documentary? Very interesting stuff…

        Can’t wait for the sequel when it finally arrives πŸ™‚

  3. I wish I could afford more of it. May as well enjoy it & own it while we can because we never know when our time will end.
    Have a wonderful week! xx πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ xx

  4. Not bad for … human.

    I’ve got to watch that film again now. I love all four of those films. Aliens is still one of the few that I give 10/10 to.

    The fact that it has the music from one of my favourite bands is a huge plus. That track is going to feature on my Music of the Day in the near future. Due to the video content, maybe I should make it 21st December πŸ˜‰

    I know it is a film and it is the script, but if you look at it, when Newt is taken by the aliens, she could have just said “sod it” and abandoned the place. After all – Newt dies anyway between 2 and 3, but she went and saved her, and then the immortal line “get away from her you B**CH!”

    And there is still talk of Alien 5 πŸ™‚

    • It is very good advice. For whatever the reason I am still on this planet. I have had more than 5 really close encounters with not being here. I never forget that or take anything for granted ever. Her advice is solid!

Thank you for your thoughts!
