I don’t think I’m ready yet to talk about how bad I was doing the day before Thanksgiving. I was still stretched pretty thin Thanksgiving too, but I rallied with opposite action and did what I could. Socialized during Thanksgiving lunch then took my stepdaughter out to see a movie that we both had been wanting to see. I did not take photographs of Thanksgiving food like I planned. I tried to stay focused on the moment so the phone did not come out very much.
It turned out to be exactly what I needed. Disney’s Encanto was amazing~! I’m not going to give spoilers, but if you’ve seen it, you should check out this article about how Encanto was different than most Disney films. It was an amazing film centered around family and being different. It was one of those self-discovery movies that gave me the feels.
Mirabel Madrigal is the main character and protagonist of the film. I definitely connect with her. I’ve always felt like the plain one in my family. I know my siblings always felt like I was the “golden child”, but I never felt like I lived up to expectations. Did anyone else grow up as a “gifted” child and end up being an anxious, mentally unstable adult?
I’ll end my post here today. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a safe Black Friday. See you tomorrow!
