What Star Wars taught me about life

I’ve been readying my 5 year old son some abridged versions of the Star Wars trilogy lately and as we discussed the stories it occurred to me what a good metaphor they are for life in general…

Friends make a difference – Luke, Han and co would have given up their struggles, or at least not been successful without each other – their faith and support of each other is what got them through. thinking of Luke leaving Dagobah to help his friends in Cloud City, or Han going after Luke on Hoth.

Success doesn’t come from having the biggest toys or the most resources – small group takes down emormous organisation has a familiar ring to it.  And those empire guys always looked so unhappy – no fun at all…

Anything is possible, don’t give up – so often the odds looked in surmountable but those rebels found a way…

Everyone has different strengths – no homogeneity here, each unique character had their own talents and weaknesses and together they had most things covered.

I know its just a movie but life is a stage…
