Marvel blessed the world with three movies last year, one of which was Captain Marvel. Some loved it, others – not so much. Either way, there are a few great pieces of advice found in the action and dialogue of this great movie. (If you didn’t guess already, I’m one of the ones who loved this movie.)
1 – Use your strengths regardless of what others say.
Those unique quirks are yours, and you deserve to put them to good use. Don’t let your team captain make you feel bad for using powers. If you have something special (which we all do), use it.
2 – Not everyone is who they say they are.
Maybe we don’t have real life shape shifting Skrulls running around pretending to be grandmas and agents, but we do still have to deal with false people. Unfortunately, it’s common to come across someone appearing to be someone he/she isn’t. Not everyone is a good, trustworthy confidant.
That being said, honest people do exist. We just have to be genuine and sift through the fake-ness.
3 – We all have a choice.
When Carol learns her life for the past few years has been a lie, she makes the choice to help those truly in need. She could have made any number of other decisions, but it was her choice.
If something doesn’t feel right – make a choice and change it. We all have that incredible power.
On a less serious note – I also re-learned (what I already knew) not to mess with cats. (Or Flerkens?)
Use your strengths, watch out for those pretending to be someone else, and know that we always have a choice.
Learn from everything. Have a good day 😬
