Here is your weekly dose of “5-Frank Points Friday,” a list of what I’m pondering and exploring.
What I’m watching – This will be 3 in 1 point
Coherence (Tubitv), Predestination (Amazon Prime, iTunes), Triangle (Tubitv, YouTube). These movies were recommended to me by a friend of mine, and they didn’t disappoint. Great drama, horror, psychological thriller I have seen so far!
Podcast Episode I’m listening to –
How to Become Batman from the Invisibilia Podcast (Apple Podcast, Stitcher). In “How to Become Batman,” Alix and Lulu examine the surprising effect that our expectations can have on the people around us. You’ll hear how people’s expectations can influence how well a rat runs a maze. Plus, the story of a man who is blind and says expectations have helped him see. Yes. See. This journey is not without skeptics.
Question I’m Wrestling with –
If you woke up tomorrow morning, and you discovered that you only had 10 years to live, what would you stop doing?
What I wish for you in 2021 – This was yesterday’s post and here it is again.
I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
Quote I’m pondering –
“You never know if a good day is a good day.”
And, as always, please give me feedback on Twitter. Which point above is your favorite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions? Please let me know. Just send a tweet to @realfrankibanga and put #5FrankPointsFriday at the end so I can find it.
Have a wonderful weekend, all.
Much love to you and yours,
P.S: This is my last post for 2020. I’m taking the next few weeks to recharge myself, to evaluate how 2020 was for me, the lessons I learned, I’m setting new goals for 2021 and most importantly I’m going to rest. This has been a long and trying year for all of us, especially this time of the year and my heart goes out for those who lost loved ones, friends, colleagues, and those who are currently in hospitals fighting for their lives, my heart goes out for you. I hope 2021 is the light that we’re all waiting for and I can’t wait for this year to be over.
I wish you and yours a safe, happy, and healthy Christmas and A wonderful New Year! Take care of yourself, and if you can, someone else too.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
