Experience is the master teacher. We all learn some lessons the hard way no matter how smart we are or how smart we think we are. This is a prerequisite to happiness. I want to share a film with you that illustrates what I am touching upon. I first saw The Flamingo Kid (1984) on television when I was a kid. It blew me away. As we get older we realize that some films that blew us away as kids fail to impress us as adults. This film was even more sensational from my adult perspective. I hope you will consider my recommendation. I can appreciate this film a lot more after learning so many things the hard way. I’ll take the hard way over the harder way any day.
