feel like you aren’t spontaneous or courageous enough? Ever wish you could just
try something new or just go with the flow? It’s hard to take a chance in life
when the odds are against you or people are telling you not to.
you just have to listen to yourself and figure it all out on your own, though.
So in honor of it being Take a Chance
Day (yep, it’s April 23), get inspired with these movies about everyday
people just taking chances and trying something new!
Woods is smart and rich, but she’s also a bit ditzy and the stereotypical
blonde girl. When she gets dumped by her hot BF and doesn’t know what to do
with her life, she takes a chance and turns it upside down! Elle sets her
sights on winning her guy back, which means tackling law school, mean girls…and
all the people who told her she couldn’t do it!
50 First Dates
is the story of Henry falling in love with Lucy and Lucy falling in love with
Henry…over and over and over again. Lucy has amnesia and always forgets who
Henry is the next day, but that doesn’t stop Henry from pursuing her. He is
told to leave her alone by her family, but he doesn’t give up. He knows that
Lucy is his true love and that they can live happily together, so he goes for
it! It’s all about listening to your heart.
Eat, Pray, Love
when it seems like you have nothing left or don’t know who you are anymore, it
means it’s time to change your perspective on life. Liz Gilbert just got out of
a boring marriage and doesn’t know where she’s heading in life, but she knows
she wants to head somewhere. So she embarks on a trip all over the world to
find love, both for herself and for someone else.
Grace Bennett doesn’t exactly get the trip of her dreams when she first gets to
Paris, but with a little help from her friends, a royal look-a-like, and some
chance-taking, Grace makes her trip a bit more fun! She was skeptical of the
awesome opportunity that she was given, but then she let go and decided to take
a chance on life, finding love in the process.
Lizzie McGuire Movie
at first it wasn’t really Lizzie’s decision to become an international pop
sensation by taking her look-a-like’s place, but she ended up warming up to the
idea! After Lizzie gets mistaken for the singing star and is given the
opportunity to pretend to be her for a bit, she takes it. The result? One crazy
adventure of a lifetime that she never would’ve had without taking that chance!
and Sara meet and fall in love, passing in the night. They put their love in
the hands of chance, hoping for the fateful opportunity to reunite with one
another once again. Sometimes taking a chance is the hardest thing you will
ever do, but if it is meant to be then it will definitely come.
do you wish you could take a chance on? What’s your fave chance-taking flick?
Blog about it, babes.
