So I’m not a huge fan of cartoon movies, but I love Up, I do. I think my favorite scene in the entire movie is when Mr. Frederickson finally realizes that his house which is his prized possession is worthless compared to the value of friendship, and he mercilessly throws everything out of his house, gets rid of his walker, and goes to save a young boy.
He may be really old, but he finally discovered what was important, and what’s more it made him feel alive, younger, and free.
Doing what we love to do and what we want to do is so freeing. We feel alive, like we are in a honeymoon stage with life.
I tend to be overly practical much of the time, I rationalize everything, plan everything, and pretty much convince myself of why something won’t work before I ever try it.
It’s bad I know, and I’m working on it. I haven’t hit my goal that I know I’m supposed to be doing, but I know I need it. And so with that in mind, I am trying to start my adventure of a lifetime.
