Power of positivity

Look for the lessons.

There are so many lessons we can learn from the people we meet, the places we go… and the creative brilliance we watch.  The world is currently listening to the Hamilton soundtrack on repeat, belting out,

 “Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now!” 

Movies, content and artistry are at the tip of our fingertips.  I’ve been enjoying re-watching Disney classics with my kids these past few weeks and realized just how many life lessons we have learned from Disney characters:  

Belle taught us to always see the beauty that lies within each heart, beneath the surface. 

Ariel taught us that we must take chances to discover who we are truly meant to be. 

Dory taught us to never give up…and just keep swimming. 

Baloo taught us to forget about worries and strife and look for the bare necessities. 

Timon and Pumbaa told us Hakuna Matata. It means “no worries, for the rest of your days.”

Stitch taught us that, “Ohana means family. No one gets left behind or forgotten.”

In everything we see, do, hear and experience… look for the lessons. Thank you, Stitch, for reminding all of us that family is more than just the people in your home. It’s the people you choose. We are Ohana!
