'A life lived in fear is a life half lived' - inspire her with this sterling silver bangle, inscribed with a quote from the film Strictly Ballroom.
The bangle is 2.5 inches in diameter.
It is approximately 2mm wide.
The story behind the phrase:
"Strictly Ballroom, directed by Baz Lurhmann, is my all-time favourite film. It came out when I was fifteen and I went to the cinema to watch it at least six times. Every time I watched it, the entire cinema auditorium broke into spontaneous applause at the end of the film. It’s a cheesy, fake-tanned, sequinned, gloriously Aussie, feel-good movie about having the courage to dance your own steps. The hero has to resist parental pressure, others' expectations and dirty tricks to be true to himself. ‘A life lived in fear is a life half-lived’ is the motto of the heroine - and by the end of the film, all of the main characters have grown in courage - and the bully of the story is left powerless. It’s a story that resonated with me at fifteen - and ever since. I’m still afraid of many things in life, but I’m not afraid to to do my own thing - and I hope my children aren’t either. They love the movie too - and I often hear them reminding each other that 'a life lived in fear is a life half-lived' - in Australian accents of course!"
