We finally made it! Last day of the #5DayMovieChallenge. First of, big shout out to creator Mike Mack for allowing us to go back to Memory Lane and relive all those cool moments brought by all the movies that we love.
And now, my final entry for the challenge, "A Movie to Pass on to My Kids" is no other than The Sandlot.
All we want for our kids is for them to be successful, independent and always to be safe. Sometimes we leave out the most important things which will form their character and their memories. Let me be clear, I don't have children of my own but I was a kid once and I was fortunate enough to have parents that allow me to make my own mistakes and to decide what I wanted to do and with whom.
The Sandlot will always be relevant because no matter how times have changed, we will always have the chance to experience our first love, our first friends, that unforgettable summer and most of all, our first memories that will keep us going for the rest of our lives (good and bad).
Growing up hurts but that pain cannot be denied from our children. We don't want anything to happen to them but what would happen when you are not longer around. We are here to guide them, not to impose certain type of life.
Every time I watch the movie, I automatically go back in time and think about all those times I was with my friends and how I got in trouble. But you know what, there's always a constant in my memories; my parents.
When I get the chance to have children, I want them to be proud of me not the other way around. They have nothing to prove to anyone but themselves. i want them to live with no regrets.
Our children will eventually grow up, have children of their own and get on with their lives. But there's that moment, and they will experience it as well, when we would feel trapped, depressed and that life has no sense. And the only thing we all have to do is to remember our own Sandlot moment and I hope my children would, too.
These moments will always live in my heart. For-ev-er...
Well, there you have it. Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoyed the read.
