4 Life Lessons from Wonder Woman

A few weeks ago, we went to the movie theater as a family to watch Wonder Woman. It was a movie we have been waiting to see – and truly, we came out entertained and inspired. I personally loved the movie because growing up, I knew Wonder Woman’s story and I was glad that the movie didn’t change much from the original story and that the movie wasn’t just entertaining but it was able to make us appreciative of Diana’s journey and truly root for her as a character.

Gal Gadot and Chris Pine were also very good choices for the lead characters. They truly owned the characters.

There were also a couple of quotes and lessons that I picked up from the movie:

  • Love is what can change the world. -As Diana said, “It’s about what you believe. And I believe in love. Only love will truly save the world.”
  • The one you love the most can hurt you the most. – As Queen Hippolyta said, “You have been my greatest love. Today you become my greatest sorrow.”
  • Don’t let our schedules or trivial matters take control of how we live our lives. Let us be intentional in how we live our lives. As Diana said as she looks at the watch – “That tiny thing tells you what to do?”
  • We always have a choice. – We can do nothing, just stand and watch the world or we can do something about what we see. As Steve Trevor said”My Father told me once, ‘If you see something wrong happening in the world, you can either do nothing, or you can do something.’ And I already tried nothing.”

I am hoping to watch the movie again. How about you? What did you think of the movie?
