The moment that you see the movie trailer, you’d probably think that this is just one of those sexy-comedy movies only aimed at making your jaws and tummies ache the moment you step out of the cinema knowing how able the cast and crew are. But not until you watch the movie ’til the end.
Kim Molina, being the newest box office princess in her movie Jowable, creates a more defined meaning of the word “self-worth” (halaga). Elsa’s being desperate leaves everyone laughing and crying all at the same time. Everyone of us may, at some point, feel we are not worth anything or perhaps – anyone, well, a jowa (significant other) to be particular. We have our own little issues of self-worthiness that we battle with every single day.
And talking about “single,” well, all the single ladies out there, in particular, can’t be blamed for feeling unwanted for crying out loud. It’s probably because they haven’t seen the beauty of their “now,” or perhaps, they just haven’t watched this movie when they should actually feel #Jowable. So here, we’ve listed down quite a number of reasons why you deserve to feel #Jowable:
1. You’re worth the wait because you too can wait.
Remember when we were taught that “Patience is a virtue”? You can own it too. Your value is more than a little shining treasure. You should acknowledge that. The movie teaches all of us that there’s actually glory in waiting and that perhaps, God is preparing someone for us – a person we truly deserve. And it goes the same for the dreams we’re already feeling annoyed with waiting.
But let us not, of course, misinterpret that “waiting” as not having to do anything. Elsa prayed so hard, too, even when she got so impatient at some point and desperately asked God for someone to “love” her.
Remember, you’re worth the wait but learn to wait too.
