"Everyday is full of emotion"

Yesterday I saw the box office biggie--Inside Out! To say the least, it could be up there as one of my top favorite Pixar movies, "well done" would be an understatement. Pixar has always done a phenomenal job but the older I get, the more I come to realize that the movies have a lot of deep heart struggles and life lessons in them. There is a lot of character development and character refining in the movies and I love that about them. This one imparticular had an incredible message that was almost completely applicable to what I just experienced with coming here to Texas. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but as a word of encouragement for you today.. You can't move forward in life without experiencing sadness because without sadness there is no joy. Sweet little 11 year old Reilly came to that realization in this movie and it definitely made me think. There are chapters and seasons of our lives that will be closed as we grow older. The more we try to not close them the more difficult it gets. Grieving the end of a season is OKAY, (trust me, I did that myself this year and although it isn't fun it is necessary) because it helps us to move forward, but don't stay stuck in a chapter of your life that is meant to be closed. More forward and find your true JOY with where you are at, no matter what the circumstance. There is joy in the little things, so I challenge you to find them today! Be like Joy from Inside the light for someone else today because the joy in your own life is unspeakable! Happy Wednesday, friends! Go see that movie this weekend, you won't regret it!
