While celebrating New Year's Day, we encourage you, our dear Candy Girls, to dream new dreams and make them happen this 2017. Or if they're really big dreams, we encourage you to start working on them next year! We believe you can do it because you're strong enough to get anything you set your hearts and minds to. To help you with that, we've rounded up five movies you can watch to inspire you to take chances this year. Happy watching, Candy Girls!

  1. Mad Max: Fury Road

What it will remind you of: That you're no damsel in distress. Girls can do the saving, too, and we can even rule the land if we only stick to each other and encourage each other about all the things we can do—on our own or with another person.

  1. Pitch Perfect

What it will remind you of: New things can be scary but that doesn't mean you should stop yourself from doing something new. How would you even know if it's for you or now if you don't even try, right? Take chances and grab opportunities instead of focusing on what could and could not happen. You'll never really know unless you let go of your doubts and try.

What it will remind you of: The toughest moments will reveal your strength. So don't give up. Whenever you encounter a roadblock, treat it as a moment that will help you develop your character. Sometimes, we are given challenges not only so that we may learn to overcome them, but also so we can learn something from them that will help us in the future. So instead of thinking about walking away, hang in there and live through the challenges.

  1. Gravity

What it will remind you of: You have everything you need within your reach. All you have to do is focus on the good things and the possibilities instead of the bad things in your life. We've said it a million times already but hang in there, Candy Girls, and you'll find yourself standing on solid ground soon.

What it will remind you of: You can move mountains with your love. You were given something to be passionate about for a reason—to give something good to the world through it. You may think that you're just one small person in a big, big world, but if you only give yourself a chance, you'd be surprised at how much difference you can make.
