As a woman with three kids (sometimes four, if you also count my husband), animated films are a regular part of my life.
"Let It Go" has been played and sung in my house and car at least 500 hundred times.
Luckily, there's a new movie that's replaced the "Frozen" obsession.
Basically, the Trolls are these ever-happy creatures that like to dance, sing, and hug all day.
They are colourful, happy, positive, and loving.
When I took my kids to see it, at first I thought it'd be just another cutsie story, predictable, with a happy ending.
After nearly 10 years of watching these animated movies, you'd think you've seen it all.
Don't get me wrong. I love movies.
It's fun taking my kids to see these happy movies.
But sometimes it feels like a bore.
Princess Poppy is my new hero.
All she wants to do is be happy, and help others be happy.
She'll stop at nothing to make it happen because she knows it's all in us.
One of the things I tell my kids regularly is to create happiness.
Happiness is a choice.
There's an epidemic of grumpiness and sadness going on nowadays, and although I recognise how complex depression can be, most of it can actually be remedied if people stop sitting around waiting for happiness to come to them.
It's an active choice and one's own responsibility to make it happen for themselves.
There are a few important factors that help forward this process.
- Proper nutrition
- Regular exercise
- Healthy restful sleep
- Sufficient self-care
- Chiropractic adjustments
- And happy movie watching like Trolls.
Also, I've noticed that a lot of people like to play the victim card. Stop doing that and start being accountable for where you are today and how you feel.
So, get adjusted regularly, eat, sleep, and exercise well.
And to jump start it all, go see Princess Poppy create happiness!
See you at your next adjustment!
