We just went to see Amy Schumer’s new comedy, I Feel Pretty, which is touching and funny, and I highly recommend it.
The premise of the film is that an ordinary, pudgy woman, Renee, of just average looks, wishes to be breathtakingly beautiful.
Renee falls off her bike at Soul Cycle, hits her head, and when she awakens, she looks in the mirror and sees the beauty she always hoped to become.
Suddenly infused with newfound chutzpah and confidence, Renee goes after her dream job as the receptionist of a high-end beauty company. In spite of the fact that she looks nothing like the job description (young, hip, thin, dressed in cutting-edge fashion), she lands the job.
Then she pursues a relationship with a man she meets in line at the dry cleaner and in spite of himself, he falls for her wit, charm, and over-the-top self-confidence.
All of this is happening because Renee truly believes she has become this amazing, irresistible beauty.
Unlike most people who say: “I’ll believe when I see it,” Renee is unintentionally practicing true Law of Attraction which says “I’ll see it when I believe it.”
And she practices “Living As If” by going for her big dream job by changing her hair, clothes and, most importantly, her belief and attitude about what she can accomplish in the world.
While the critics didn’t love this film, I found it to be fun, funny, inspiring, and uplifting.
Plus, don’t forget that if you want to be a pleasure puppy, laughter is a great oxytocin builder!
Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,
