Get busy living, or get busy dying. - Andy Dufresne

The movie Shawshank Redemption is right up there at the top of many peoples favourite-movies list. It does have some gems. Did you know the movie is based on a Stephen King story? Clever stuff with some extreme feel good moments and clever stuff to entertain your little grey cells. The sneakily intelligent character of Andy Dufresne played by Tim Robbins delivers the quote above. A good one to remember when you wake up in the morning and don’t feel very inspired. Especially if you are one of those people that gets down when it’s your birthday because you are getting older. I have never really understood that one. I think of it as a celebration of the fact that I’ve been fortunate enough to be around for how ever many years and look forward to those that are still to come. If you get down upon yourself, you are turning up your nose in the face of your existence so far. Well that is your own fault buddy … snap out of it already and get busy living.
