After seeing Everything, Everything, I can confidently say that it is one of my new favorite movies. When I first saw the trailer I thought that it was going to be a bit cheesy, but it was nothing like I had expected it to be. 18-year-old Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) suffers from severe combined immunodeficiency, meaning that she must stay in a clean and protected environment for her entire life. If she were to leave her house, it would be extremely easy for her to contract an illness that could potentially kill her.
Maddy’s whole life begins to completely change when a new family moves into the house next to her’s. Maddy’s new neighbor, Olly (Nick Robinson) makes an instant connection with her as the two get to know each other through text messages. As they continue fall in love, Maddy becomes determined to live her life to the fullest and risk everything in order to experience everything she can. This was such an incredible and inspiring film, so here are 6 lessons I learned from Everything, Everything, in theaters May 19th!
Taking chances is a very important part of life. Even if you’re afraid of the outcome of a certain decision, you’ll never get anywhere in life if you don’t take a risk every once in awhile. Try stepping out of your comfort zone, because you might end up enjoying something that you thought you wouldn’t.
If you’re presented with a fun opportunity in life, always take advantage of it. Certain experiences won’t always be around for you to try, so it’s essential that you make the most of every moment.
Sometimes you can’t change certain situations, so it doesn’t do you any good to sit around and worry about things that you can’t do anything about. Try to stay positive in these difficult situations and don’t worry about possible outcomes until they actually occur.
It’s quite common for dreamers to achieve their dreams. The more you dream and strive to achieve something, the more likely you are to actually reach your goals. Dreamers don’t stop until they accomplish exactly what they want.
Simple things like the ocean, a funny joke, or even the perfect handstand can be beautiful. Embrace these little moments in life and make the most of them, because sometimes you don’t realize how amazing something is until it’s gone.
Love is the most important thing in the world, so if you find people who love you for who you are, it’s essential that you hold on to them. Real love is rare, so make sure that when you find it, you never let it go.
