My New Hero
As I told the Good News group tonight, I just got back from Disney’s latest movie (“Enchanted“) that connected me with so much joy and delight that I was laughing louder than any of the kids in the theater, cried twice, and at one point was literally on the edge of my seat. I was expecting a good show, but man, did Universe deliver!!
The scene I wanted to share was when Gisele was provoked to anger for the first time in her fairy tale life by her McDreamy lead who has a habit of saying no. The way she handles it … well, she’s my new hero!
I watched a Byron Katie clip on You Tube that included a brief bit about anger last week. (I wish I could remember which one it was so I could post it here, but maybe someone will know it and post it in comments.)
Anyway, Katie said something along the lines of how lovely it is to be angry, which would sound ridiculous to most and probably only Katie can really get away with saying something like that. But she said something like, “You never know, this might be the last time you’re ever angry – so you better enjoy it!”
And then in the movie tonight there was Gisele giddy with delight over “anger”! I mean, she comes from a fairy tale world where everything is ALL GOOD.
I often suggest to clients how boring it would be if we didn’t have the ups and downs of life, and feel a complete range of emotions. That suggestion might sound kind of fabricated, but Gisele couldn’t have provided a better example of its truth!
Not that I’m promoting anger .. but when we go there, let’s not miss out on the deliciousness of it! Being able to appreciate it for what it is makes the ride much more enjoyable.
Thank you, Gisele!
