A Hobbit’s Heart

The Hobbit – The Battle Of The Five Armies is the last installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit Trilogy and the sixth movie after the Lord Of The Rings trilogy which began in 2001. Watched this with James. Again, poor me…can’t remembered was it the end of last year or the beginning of this year.

A good ending to all of the trilogies. Like Bilbo’s character. The hobbits are neither the strongest, fastest or smartest folk around, and without magic powers too. But Bilbo have something that others do not have. Faith & Courage. Bilbo’s courage grew from an inner conviction that was not so easily be shaken by fear. He had such faith in his moral compass, choosing always to value lives over material wealth, that he was willing to make tough decisions by giving away his share of the treasure and risking his relationship with the dwarves. Bilbo’s inner identity was so secure, that his character could stay true and unspoiled throughout his many trials. His courage stemmed from keeping a pure heart and unrelenting faith in what he believed.

For 2015- where there are so much of uncertainty…be it in the economy climate, the social fabric of our society, the change in weather and in the rakyat daily lives – let’s cling to what’s good and true, with the courageous heart & faith of a hobbit.

Thorin’s last words – Go back to your armchair, Master Burglar. And your books. Plant your tree. If everybody value home, food and cheer like you did, the world would be a merrier place.
