Titanic was called the ship of dreams. And it was. It
A rich girl and poor boy, who meet on the ill-fated voyage of
the 'unsinkable' ship. Titanic, the ship of dreams. Is also
known as Unsinkable. On its epic journey a poor artist
named Jack Dawson and a rich girl Rose DeWitt Bukator fall
in love, until one night, their fairytale love for one another
turns into a struggle for survival on a ship about to founder
to the bottom of the North Atlantic in 1912.
Inspired by the swoon-worthy "Meet me by the clock"
note or the tragic "I'll never let go" goodbye, here are 15
grown-up life lessons we learned from watching Titanic.
You already know that life is precious and time is a commodity so make
every action, thought, and word count. Do not withhold your passion, your
message, or the love and the value you bring to others. Choose a positive
attitude and be grateful for each experience and interaction you have.
1. Make The Day Count.
“I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't
know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take
life as it comes at you... to make each day count.” ― Jack Dawson
Rose probably didn't plan to meet the love of her life at sea — while
she was engaged to someone else, no less — but that's exactly what
happened. Being open to love can be half the battle sometimes, so it's
important to let yourself go with the flow every once in a while.
2. Love Arrives at Unexpected Times
Where you're from doesn't have to dictate who you're with, so don't
restrict your social circle to people who are just like you. Besides,
opposites really do attract, and you may find that your differences
make your relationship more interesting.
3. Your Upbringing Isn't Everything
We can’t live in another world besides the one we’ve got. Just
because you’re in love, you can’t forget your friends or family or
job. If something goes wrong, you need that support system or
the pain of “reentering the world” will be too much to handle!
4. Love is not an excuse to make your own reality.
Oh, Jack and Rose. Had you just waited a few seconds longer…or
talked anything through! These lovers acted rashly and paid the
price. Keep your relationship alive by practicing patience when
making decisions and communicating with each other.
5. Communication and patience are key to making a
There's something to be said for sweet notes — like, say, "Make it count. Meet
me by the clock." — a bouquet of flowers, or a candlelit dinner. Traditional
chivalry can be a great way to show love, and that courtesy should go both
ways, so don't forget to do the little things every now and then.
6. Old School Romance Goes a Long Way
Rose knew that Cal wasn't the one for her: If your inner voice is telling
you that something isn't right, chances are, there's probably a good
reason for it. When things seem off, take a step back and assess where
that feeling is coming from — ignoring it will just make you feel worse,
so avoid sweeping those doubts under the rug.
7. It's Best to Trust Your Gut
That larger-than-life personality may seem a little difficult to deal
with, but a person who likes taking chances isn't afraid of a good
challenge. When things feel uncertain, it's the bold risk-taker —
someone like Jack — who can step up and make change happen.
8. A Risk-Taker Makes a Good Romancer
Rose immediately trusted Jack, who inspired her with his art and his
dare-to-dream attitude. Finding someone you believe in — someone
who motivates you and who sparks your creativity — guarantees an
exciting relationship that's full of surprises.
9. Your Other Half Should Inspire You
Rose's mother wasn't too fond of her daughter's relationship with Jack. Still,
Rose knew that she needed to follow her heart. She was on to something: you
tend to know what's best for yourself, so unless everyone you care about has
doubts about your partner, you should stay true to your feelings.
10. Sometimes You Have to Ignore the Haters
Jack and Rose shared several lighthearted moments, too. From the
spitting lesson to the drinking and dancing below deck, the two kept
things carefree when they could. A relationship needs more than
powerful emotions to stay healthy — it needs a lot of fun times, too.
11. Love Should Be Playful
Jack and Rose got along like good friends sometimes, but there was no
lack of heat in their relationship — steamy car scene, anyone? Yes,
friendship is a part of any solid relationship, but intimacy is what sets
romantic connections apart from everything else.
12. Intimacy Is Essential
You (hopefully) won't be battling any sinking ships with your partner, but
it's true that the occasional struggle can strengthen your relationship. By
tackling different obstacles together, you'll learn how to fight through life's
tough times and lean on each other along the way.
13. Challenges Can Bring You Closer
You are the one who must take full responsibility to make it happen. You
cannot wait for the knight on the white horse to come rescue you or wait to
be discovered by a celebrity who will promote your product or service. You
need to build your relationships, focus on what you want, and go after it.
14. Only You Can Save Yourself – No One Else Can Save You.
When you trust your instincts and follow your intuition, you can make
decisions that feel right. You already know what you have to do. You
already know what feels right in your heart and gut. Make time to
listen and follow through on your ideas. Take action!
15. Trust Yourself – You Already Know… & You Will Fly!!!
Fifteen-hundred people went into the sea, when Titanic sank from
under us. There were twenty boats floating nearby... and only one
came back. One. Six were saved from the water, myself included.
Six... out of fifteen-hundred. Afterward, the seven-hundred people
in the boats had nothing to do but wait... wait to die... wait to live...
wait for an absolution... that would never come. - Rose Dawson
But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that
he saved me... in every way that a person can be saved. I don't
even have a picture of him. He exists now...only in my memory!!!!!
To Rose all Titanic and the real love of her life Jack Dawson is all
an existence inside of her memory, and Titanic is to rest in peace
at the bottom of the North Atlantic from 1912 until the end of time.
Thank You Very Much
