I do not like scary movies! My husband does, so being the good wife that I am I went to the early show with him to see this movie about a killer clown. First of all, clowns are supposed to be funny not scary. So there is this small town where kids are coming up missing. This group of not popular kids ban together to go on a search for one of the kids missing little brother. During their quest they are picked on by the town bullies as well as a psycho clown. Now mind you each kid is dealing with real life issues so when this clown starts terrorizing them he plays off of their fears. I won't tell you how the movie ends but here are my thoughts about the real life bullies and the psycho clowns in our lives.
Bullies are just insecure people who make themselves feel better by picking on others. You know who they target; people who are smaller than them, smarter than them or "different" than them. When you are on a path to finding purpose and becoming the fabulous person you are supposed to be your bully are all of the obstacles that stand in your way. You want to travel but don't have the money so you don’t take the trip. You want to be promoted at work but keep getting overlooked. You are in a relationship and want to get married but your significant other does not. All of these things are bullies aka obstacles. The good thing about bullies is that they can and often will be defeated.
Psycho clowns are our fears. The thing or things that we let hold us captive when we need to be making moves. Fear says that you can’t leave that relationship because he or she is the best you're ever going to get. Fear says that you can't sing the lead in the choir because Ms. Lady ma'am always sing lead. Fear says that you can't quit your job to start your own business. The only way to combat fear is to face IT. Face IT with the full knowledge and understanding that the road might be rough, you might lose friends, you might lose your job but your purpose is greater than your fear aka psycho clowns.
What bullies are taunting you? What psycho clown is holding you captive in the pit of despair? What is your IT? Are you willing to face it and defeat it?
Until next time Be BLESSED and FABULOUS!
