Life Lessons from “Finding Dory”

What would Dory do?

Don’t think twice

At some point in everyone’s life, you’ll have absolutely no idea what to do. You’ll be so lost, and you’ll wonder why you’re where you are in the first place. But you know what? Just go. Sometimes, you should trust your gut. We should all have faith in fate. Wait. What’s that other word for fate? Oh yes! Destiny.

You can choose what to remember, but you can’t choose what to forget

It’s easy to decide which memories we want to retain. We can easily memorize the songs we like, that formula we need to ace that Trigonometry exam, and recall the faces of the people we know. However, as we move on in life, we are bound to forget things. There are also things that other people won’t even remember, but you’ll never forget.

You know how to get in … and out

When you enter the real world, there’s this one word that you should know: accountability. It’s about being responsible for your actions and not blaming anyone else for your lapses. So when you know that you were the one who got yourself in rut, you should be the one to find your way out.

There’s always another way

It’s all about perspective. It’s in the way we see things. Half full or half empty, it’s up to you. It’s either you accept your situation or you find another way to change it. It’s about being resourceful, optimistic, and of course, courageous.

Plans … sux

Be spontaneous. YOLO. Go on a gap year if you can. You’ll never know who you’ll meet on that solo trip you booked on a whim. You can’t control everything, so just make the most out of what you can.

You can do anything you set your mind to

Always believe in yourself. When you think that you haven’t done enough, don’t beat yourself up for it. The key is to remain focused on your goals, and to keep yourself motivated and driven to achieve them.

Some things are worth the wait

No matter how long, no matter how hard. Yes, some things are all about hard work and hustle, but there are things that take time, and patience. Enjoy the slow burn. Just like this movie, those 13 years of waiting—it was all worth it.

And of course, just keep swimming
