Excelsior - Onward & Upward

I was in a movie watching mode last night, which is very rare.  I'm always on the go, working on my website, or business, or marketing, or orders, or networking or kids.  

BUT,

Last night I wanted to watch a movie.  Actually I had photographed a client and we had a great conversation, which is what I do love about what I do so much.  The connections and learning about each other.  I always, always, always get something from my clients and I always, always, always learn something from them.  Coincidentally, my client is a therapist and she had seen my post on my Recovery, which I know is a HUGE part of my open life now, I mean I've been working on it quietly and secretly for a year, then decided to be all open about it, and just chatting about life and relationships and all that.  And she recommended the movie, When A Man Loves A Woman. I viewed the trailer and remember I had watched it years ago but wanted to see again.  Searched for it on Netflix - not there!  Bummer!  Wondered how else I could get it on my Apple TV?  I could have watched on a YouTube version on my computer, but I wanted to lie in bed and watch on the bigger screen.  Anyhow, I drove to Family Video to try and rent it - but they don't even carry it anymore - they sold it!  So, then I drove back home and searched for other Netflix movies.

Stumbled on Silver linings playbook

And decided to chill and watch that again.  I absolutely LOVE that movie.  Just feel like I can relate so much.  But the word EXCELSIOR just was such a neat word and I loved that play on it throughout the movie.  What a powerful word.  So, I wanted to look up things all about Excelsior. There really are so many awesome quotes from this movie.....

Point is, Excelsior reminds us that there is a silver lining and onward and upward always in life.  Just gotta look for it and think about the challenges and what they teach us......
