Just a wonderful movie. It's astonishing, touching, and inspiring. And moreover, it's real. This is a story about a man named Chris Gardner, about his past homeless life, a long time before his new life as a millionaire, an entrepreneur, a speaker and a philanthropist.

Just in the dark time of his life when he didn't have any place to live and need to sleep wherever he and his son can be safe, he was trying to understand the meaning of the word happiness. Why Thomas Jefferson used the phrase "pursuit of happiness". Happiness, what is that? Although everyone has their own definitions for this abstract concept, all of us needs to pursue for it, run after it. No one is an exception. Because happiness is not born together with us. There are some people seem to be born with a gold spoon, but it does't mean they are happy. In my opinion, just when we struggle for the happiness, we reach it. But how many people can really touch it? We plan, we hope, we have faith and we lose faith. And then we have another plan, we begin all of that circle again, again, and once again. HOW MANY PEOPLE can touch the true happiness? To me, the happiness is a journey, well, non-stop. Happiness is a journey not just a destination.

Recently, I have read a blog entry, she wrote in great literature voice, and I feel what she wrote is true, so true. I just want to quote a part from her writing.

Trong suốt cuộc đời dài và rộng này, chúng ta gặp tổng cộng bao nhiêu người? Có những con người bước qua nhau không để lại chút dấu ấn. Có những con người đã từng ở bên nhau trong suốt một thời gian rất dài, để rồi cuối cùng chỉ ước giá như có thể xóa sạch những ký ức về nhau. Dù muốn hay không muốn, sẽ luôn có những người ta chỉ gặp một vài ngày rồi phải lưu luyến chia xa, cũng lại có người sẽ theo ta cả đời dù trong lòng chẳng chút thoải mái… Có những người mờ nhạt bước qua cuộc đời ta, và có những người sẽ mãi ở lại trong tim dù cho nhiều năm sau này có bị lớp bụi thời gian che phủ…


During this long and wide life, how many people have we met? There are some people who pass by us then leaving without a sign. There are people who live together during a long long time, just finally end up hoping to erase all the memories they had together. Although want or not want, there will be someone we met for a while but felt so close, or someone who will follow us the whole life but still feel distant. There will be people who just pass by our lives dully, and there will be people stay forever in our hearts through many years, long distance, and far apart. (I translated it into English though still have a lot mistakes, pardon me :)

One storm can come and blow it all away. Build it anyway...."
