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.
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......
