33 Top Inspiring Movies to Lift your Spirits  27.06.2009

I have believed for some time now that the world needs more ‘good news.’ Too often we plague our minds with negative news, stories and internal dialogue that makes it hard for our spirits to truly soar. Many of us get so used to hearing about negative things, we can be surprised when something good happens: a politician tells the truth; someone gives up their seat for an elderly person; or when something actually goes right for you etc. Wouldn’t it be great if we were surprised when things go wrong and not the other way around.

I think we are all in need of a little inspiration, motivation and uplifting stories that make us feel good. So here is a list of 33 movies that made me feel good and may provide you with a bit of inspiration and a ‘spirit lift.’ Some of these can be sad at times, but serve as a powerful reminder of what is most important. Enjoy!
