This Is Us. Moving Forward, Facing Fears.

I am a HUGE fan of the show, This is Us. Let me gush for a minute. The writing, directing, producing and the acting on this show is phenomenal!  If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend starting from the beginning of Season 1.  You won’t regret it!

After watching the very moving latest episode, Jack’s funeral, I was thinking about all the ways Rebecca’s life will be changing and how she will be fighting to stay strong for her kids and even for herself.  How she will have to work through her fears and be the person others know she can be.  Sometimes we all just need someone to shine a light on our strength, even when we don’t see it.  I am learning that we all have it within.

In the video below is a clip where the Pearson’s family beloved friend and doctor, Dr. K speaks with Rebecca after Jack’s funeral.  He reminds her of her courage and strength.  Earlier in the episode we see the places in her life where her fears are all to real.  We see how Jack and her children help her get through them. In the later part of the episode, we see the beginning of a determined Rebecca who is already facing her fears, one bridge at a time.  As a fan and a woman who is also trying to live fearlessly, I can’t wait to see the trials and triumphs of this journey for her.

This is Us Returns…Yeah!

I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of the show, This Is Us.  If you haven’t watched it yet, what are you waiting for?  I suggest watching from the begining, Season 1 .

There are so many things I love about this show. The way they weave in and out of the present to the past and back again. The way they deal with real life issues that we as humans face everyday. Real relationship struggles. Love. Forgiveness.  I could go on.

The running story line about Jack and his eminent death is one that has viewers speculating how it happens. I think I can speak for all the fans when I say how much we love Jack. And it hurts to know he dies at a young age.  But seeing how his life and death has affected every member of the family is done so well.

Who are my favorites from the show?  I truly love ALL the characters, but I think I fell in love with Jack after the second episode.  To find out he is a very flawed man after the fact, just made me love him more.

Here is a sample of the awesomeness of Jack.
