Cozy Movie Night At Home

Monday, August 22, 2016

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and GREATER Productions. but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #GREATERMovie #GreaterTheMovie

Hope you all had a great weekend!  We got to spend our Friday evening watching a new movie we had learned about called GREATER.  It doesn't come out to select theaters till 8/26/16 but we got to watch an early screening online.  Make sure to check if the movie is coming to a city near you! GREATER (you can see the movie trailer here) is an inspirational true story about a boy who grows up with a dream to play football, and the steps he takes to reach his goals.  

During the movie, Brandon the main character, goes through hard times but he found by relying on his hard work and what he believes in, he can do anything!  As a boy, he loved a college football team the Razorbacks, so he spent his childhood working hard on being the best football player he could be in hopes to someday be on that team.  Brandon woke up early, worked out, and spent everything he had to make his college football dreams come true.   With having lots of things against him on his journey to play for the team he wanted, he was able to break down those walls and not let them effect what he did.

Watching his journey was very heart wrenching because we never do well with movies where people get picked on or made fun of.  But seeing Brandon stay strong in his morals and beliefs and not caring what others say about him was truly inspiring.

In the movie, Brandon's mom was his biggest supporter.  She always cheered him on when all the odds were against her son.  She never stopped believing in him and did everything she could to help him get to where he wished and dreamed to be.  I have always felt fortunate in my life to have a mother like this as well.  If you can find someone that is willing to support you in all that you do, they sure are a great friend to keep around :)

We found that in our lives when we work hard and focus on the positive, just like Brandon and his family did, we can find greater meaning and satisfaction with all the curve-balls life throws our way.  Everyday we have the opportunity to choose to be happy, choose to be positive, and choose to have a great day, no matter what comes our way.

We hope you have a wonderful week and find ways to tackle any roadblocks that come up in your life journey!
