A friend has been on me to see “Kung Fu Panda 2”. It sounds kind of ridiculous for a girl who likes documentaries and foreign films, but one rainy Friday night I decided to take the leap. What a cute movie.
It’s a wonderful story, and I loved the way it showed kids throughout the picture how you can transform your situation. I wish someone had shared those kinds of stories and tools with me as I was growing up. I had no idea that simply changing my attitude could often change my circumstances.
Debbie Ford did a show on Hay House Radio recently where she had an illustration about changing your browser homepage. When you wake up in the morning – what is your default? Depressed.com? Anger.com? It’s a funny way to demonstrate a serious topic, and she had an amazing presentation. I had a tough day at work last week, and I went to bed feeling like John McEnroe during a Wimbledon fortnight. I woke up still bugged about the situation the next morning. It was YouCannotBeSerious.com!
Why not decide to update your settings, even if it’s only for a month or two? How about Fun.com? Kindness.com? Or my new homepage after I decided to surrender to my work event and not make myself miserable all day – ForgetAboutIt.com? You don’t even need Kung Fu Panda superpowers to get started.
Put Kung Fu Panda 2 on your list if you haven’t seen it yet. You’ll be charmed, and it may give you a little food for thought. In the words of the Soothsayer, “Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn’t make you who you are. It is the rest of your story…who you choose to be. So – who are you?”
