Flick Friday-Second Act Movie

Do you have career goals?  Or are you where you want to be?  Do you aspire to do more?

My current situation has me rethinking all this and more.  Clearly when I was little I had others trying to push me to think ahead.  All throughout my school-aged years I wanted to be a teacher.  I loved helping others.  One summer in elementary school, I even volunteered to go to summer school and be a teacher’s assistant. I loved every minute of it.

Fast forward to now.  I never finished college.  That decision has been looming over me, more than ever lately.  Do not get me wrong.  I have been very fortunate to have the positions I have had.  I have had wonderful mentors who took me under their wings and were not afraid to teach me their jobs.  With these opportunities I have held coveted positions that I earned not based on a piece of paper but with my experience.

But is it just a piece a paper?

Disclosure-I was invited to an advanced screening.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

Life happens sometimes. But most of us will come out in the end the best we can for our situations.

The struggle is real. The decision to leave school was all my mine. I do not regret deciding to provide for my son.

We should not doubt our worth. Experience was earned. You have done your time. But you need to believe that you can do it and be able to sell yourself. Your pitch, your story, and your resume - their
yours. Maybe one place may turn you down but that might have not been the place you belonged. Find your place.

Second Act is a funny movie about life. Follow Jennifer Lopez on her journey to find her place.

Synopsis-SECOND ACT is an inspirational comedy starring Jennifer Lopez as Maya, a 40-year-old woman struggling with frustrations of not having achieved more in life. As an experienced, quickwitted, perceptive employee, she is passed over for a promotion solely because she doesn’t have a college degree. Until, that is, she gets the chance to prove that street smarts are as valuable as book smarts, and that it is never too late for a Second Act.

If you are not where you want to be? Do something about it! This is what I am telling myself. Whether

it is another job, another career, or going back to school.

What will your second act be?
