Is It " The Best EXOTIC Marigold Hotel?"

Inspiration: To continue to be in awe of the "magic" of exotic lands. :-)

This past weekend, I took myself on a date to see the limited release. "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."  The main star of  the film is the fabulous Dame Judy Dench. She is one of seven retired, elderly who venture to the land of India for change and inspiration.

Upon arriving, the guests are greeted by the uplifting, hotel owner Sonny (played so well my Devi Patel of Slumdog Millionaire fame). The hotel is a bit run-down and in need of work, to say the least. It is not quite what the retirees had expected.

Without giving too much away, Sonny tells one of the guests when she wants to go to another hotel:

" In India we have a saying, everything will be alright in the end. So if it is not alright, it is not yet the end." 

As the movie progresses, it's characters begin to see the beauty that is all around in the ordinary and mundane. How life pulsates with color and experience... So it is with us. We desire and ask for change. When this occurs, we may experience feelings that run counter to our expectations. But as long as you can stay true to you, your path, the more you will begin to enjoy "the dance of life".

So if you get a chance, check out this inspiring flick. It makes you believe in MAGIC again!!!

Think about that....and have a "wonderful" day.

With Love, Denise
