Patience…Live…Faith

These three words are displayed at my chiropractor’s office and it got me to think about their meanings.

Patience…Good things come to those who wait. What we want isn’t always in our timing or control. Being a patient person isn’t easy but its necessary.

Live…We have to live every moment we can. Living is a risk, it’s dangerous and its worth it to keep on going no matter what adversity we face.

Faith…This is the hardest one because it calls on us believe in something. I think having faith in God, your neighbor, the universe what have you means having to hold close to something you can’t always see.

So my friends have Patience to live in faith.

A Short Review of Disney’s Christopher Robin

christopher-robin-movie-review-1

Winnie The Pooh is an iconic Disney character whose story has been told for generations. This movie puts the focus on the life of Christopher Robin. His life changed because of going off to school, World War II and having a job…you know grown-up stuff that isn’t a great deal of fun at any age.

There are lots of tenderness, action, adventure and social commentary thrown in for good measure which resonates across time. Winnie says in the movie “Doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something” and that is a key part of where the movie goes into the story it wants to tell.

Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell and a who’s who of British and American talent are wonderful in this movie. It’s one that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Go see this and may it inspire you to find your own way to doing nothing and having the adventure of your lives.

I believe that there will be ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don’t think it will be based on the color of the skin…Malcolm X
