Relevance of Pop Culture in Having a Good Life

Relevance of Pop Culture in Having a Good Life

We see a lot of things on the internet. Some of these things have bad effects on us. The rest are either good things or neutral.

Personally, I believe that having a good life can be defined and expressed in so many ways. When I am watching a movie with life-changing scenes, I sometimes become so attached to it especially if it is inspiring, which in such a case, I become more determined to achieve something. 

When I am listening to my favorite songs, it boosts my energy and uplifts my mood. The lyrics are so comforting and it makes me feel okay. What is funny about it is that whenever I am enjoying a song and my mom sees me smiling, she thinks different.

In addition, pop culture can also be seen as a symbol of good life. Let's take movies, for example.

Among the countless movies and series I have already watched, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, directed by Peter Hedges, is one of those that really made an impact on me. It is a feel-good film about a magical child named Timothy who suddenly comes into the lives of Jim and  Cindy Green, who cannot bear a child. 

Even though this movie I watched has a touch of fantasy, I found many lessons about many things that are related to family. Further, the significant messages each scene portrayed make it hard to forget. What I love the most is how it portrays the concept of having a good life. 

I find the good life being highlighted when it showcased the beauty of blessings and the gleaming transience of childhood and parenthood. The two parents can't have a child, but the emergence of Timothy gives happiness to their lives. It made me realize that having a family and the contentment of having it is already a great sign of having a good life. 

Timothy may have vanished once the last leaf on his leg fell, but it teaches us one of life's realities: people come and go, and nothing remains permanent in this world. Nevertheless, this film can indeed open everyone's mind and touch everybody's heart because I actually felt and experienced it. 

Lastly, I felt the message of living our life to the fullest. Having a wealthy life is not an absolute assurance of having an enjoyable life. The movie wants its viewers to understand that even with the simple things in life as long as you are okay with it, you can say that you are already living a good life. 

The ending may make you cry, but it's worth watching. Now, just imagine how transformative and influential pop culture is. It may be diverse, but it can still unite a wonderful feeling in our hearts, and that's joy.


Let us remember that while we can easily follow the flow and trends of certain music, art, fashion, movie, literature, and more, we should still instill in our minds to be vigilant by having a keen eye and an open mind.

Nevertheless, may the broad aspects of it become tools that empower each one of us to recognize its impact on our lives. Do not just conduct this kind of analysis just because you are required in school. Instead, think of it as a kind of experience that allows growth and deeper insights. The more that we do it, the more that we develop profound insights.
