Life in a Day- Motivational Documentary
Life in a day the documentary, has opened my eyes to things that so many of us have in common. As simple as it may seem, we all have common bonds in our daily experiences as human beings, no matter where we reside on the globe.
Anywhere from Japanese, Brazilian, African, Australian, Canadian, Russian, French, American, Spaniard, British, Malaysian & many other cultures around the globe are all waking each day to the very same radiant sunlight on their horizon's, and to open their eyes to witness a bright new day.
Free for all users to view today! being delivered from National Geographic & Youtube. It was the result of a single day on earth, that 1000's of people have experienced, and have all submitted their stories onto Youtube, one year ago on the day of July 24th 2010, as a sorta new social experiment of epic proportions.
After using the sum of 4500 hours of film footage, 80,000 clips from Youtube users across 192 nations according to wikipedia, Oscar winning director Kevin Macdonald(imbd) crafted this amazing 90 minute documentary film known as life in a day. He then presented it to the public for free, to be viewed at the Sundance Berlin & SXSW Film Festival much earlier this year in 2011.
Note: The world premier was submitted below, at the end of this hub & was also uploaded from Youtube, just beneath this note is the actual documentary's trailer.
A must see documentary - This Movie is Highly recommended
This documentary takes a great look at a single days experience worldwide traveling throughout many peoples lives, from waking up in the morning, drinking coffee, shaving, eating breakfast, kids having to go to the bathroom, too a vast multitude of miscellaneous things we all must do to get through the day.
Most of all its our reality and situational awareness that drives us all to snap into doing things on moments notice, & its a wonderful thing to know we all are in the same boat, no matter what or where we reside, no matter the walk of life.
We have hope
Daily changes in life have made us all witness the same struggles for survival, for success & motivation to keep one another going. This documentary is proof of the epic battle we all have of being nothing other than human.
Humanity has always made it through the toughest moments, the sad ones, the joyous occasions, times of war, & the glorious celebrations. From being humble, to having humility, to showing compassion & through surviving the countless epidemics as well as global atrocities, and we all still prevailed to this very day showing signs of hope for a better future.
Love is our power
The truest theme here in my honest opinion is that love over powers everything, and is the healer of all wounds, scars, & probable wrong doings people may have experienced in their life time. Throughout the ages of time humanity has prevailed, and we will make it once again as history has shown.
Even at the dawning and coming of a whole new age (2012), humans will triumph over any misfortunes using love alone. Self love & love of others has always conquered ignorance, religious intolerance, mind or bodily pollutions, false realities, unfair treatment, human brutality and all the likes.
Love conquers all, & God has blessed us with such a powerful gift, whether we believe in him or not, being born is proof and has also been shown in this documentary
Respecting ones true Nature
Respecting this beautiful thing called nature is a start in learning to experience the beauty it possesses, & when I mean nature I mean all that we have been given, the wealth of precious lands, resources, and pure raw materials that we utilize each day with the blessings from above.
Beauty is in the eyes
We are all the beholders of great personal truths that have been witnessed by our eyes alone, the truth to it all is every eye witnesses true beauty & no matter what we all have to go through in life, at some time. For this very day being shown in this documentary, the world can see such beauty in so many differing perspectives.
Envisioning a world through the eyes of an innocent child & all the beauty he or she has yet to bear witness of can help us visualize such truth. Just to live on such a glorious & precious planet is enough to me to justify that beauty is also a reflection from within & sometimes beyond comprehension, something only our creator can come up with.
We all need to look at life with a more positive outlook today & in the future, because after all this world is all we truly have. To witness this beauty is to visually cherish it and to share with others like ourselves, this common bond as human beings & as well as the experiences & dependencies we have on the countless animals and creatures that inhabit this beautiful world.
Hapiness makes all the difference in a day
Being happy is not a hard thing to succeed in achieving, but its tough when many people have harsh living conditions and tough economic situations to face.
This pursuit of happiness is also what we all have in common & chasing it is like attempting to quench a dieing thirst. Harsh but true is this reality for us all, but once the slightest bit of happiness is achieved on that days great score or accomplishment. Now there's nothing quite like the reward one receives by a simple smile as result of being happy, originating from the inside & outwardly expressed as joy.
Fear - just an obstacle of the mind we must counquer alone
Love & Happiness is definitely that which extinguishes all fears & so I won't place an image here for such a human weakness, but will say that this Documentary also covers such a subject in many personal introspective ways.
Children are at the heart of it all & make the days work worth it
Parents worldwide work hard to provide for their families, and children are at the core of this perpetual process of nurturing, this documentary dives into the imagery of a single days passage for the children with in depth personal imagery & some intense detail of story telling by some. Children are our future no matter which way we look at it, and we all been there ourselves.
Changing our world for the better takes honest commitment to our children & we must change ourselves to adjust for their developments to be properly provided for. It's tough for many parents to do depending on economic issues where they reside, but if there's a will there's a way as shown here as well in this movie.
The World Premiere of "Life in a Day"

From one hubber to the next -

I dedicate this hub to my mother, who help breath life into me & always taught me to share her gift of love that has been given to her from her mom, may god bless her soul in heaven, & may she rest in peace.
