If you haven’t yet seen The Greatest Showman I suggest you stop what ever it is that you are doing, go and find the nearest cinema and watch it. By far it is the best movie I have seen in a long time. I would go as far as saying it’s got the ability to change your attitude. It is such an incredible storyline and the amount of emotion is definitely something that you will walk away thinking about for the next few days.
The soundtrack for The Greatest Showman is amazing. A lot of people don’t like musicals because they are a bit cringe or the music can get a little bit annoying. This is one of those movies where the music integrates into the storyline and unlike a lot of musicals it doesn’t feel like they are singing just for the sake of singing. One song which has left a lasting impact with me is a song titled “This Is Me” performed by Keala Settle. It’s one of those songs that gives you hope. If you’ve ever felt like an outsider, not felt good enough or struggled with your identity this is a reminder that you are enough. The song is encouraging, uplift and empowering. Next time you’re having a rough day or feeling low I suggest putting this song on full. You should feel comfortable living your life unapologetically. You were put on this planet for a purpose and maybe you haven’t found your purpose yet but you will. When you realise what you purpose is your passion for life will thrive.
If you’ve already been loving this song there are a couple more videos I think you will love.
