Embracing Fear

We're afraid that Bill Hader is the perfect voice actor for Fear in Disney Pixar's Inside Out animation. #nesteduniverseDesigned to look like a raw nerve, fear in Inside Out by Disney/Pixar tends to be a bit of comedic relief in this film. However, fear is something that we cannot live without. Not knowing what something is gives a bit of mystery to life. Fear lets us explore what is new, while telling us what to stay away from. In Inside Out, Fear is there to express how he feels. Fear is not one to go unheard leading to a lesson. Fear tells the others everything, expressing about how one small thing can go wrong. In reality, fear is something that tends to get in the way of our lives. The important thing is to look over fear, while embracing the unknown. Fear is the first one to worry about something, but learns later on that certain things, like broccoli, are safe. Fear is one emotion that makes us more human than other emotions we have.

Oh Joy!

Inside Out Movie PosterBefore, I left on my Hawaiian vacation I had seen Inside Out, the newest and fantastic Disney/Pixar film. I have already done posts on Sadness and Anger, a couple weeks ago. So, I have decided to do a post on the emotion Joy! Joy is the main emotion in the movie voiced by Amy Poehler. One to take command and not let anyone mess with Riley, the girl whose emotions they are, she stops at nothing. Even if it means isolating some of the emotions.

Through out the movie we see her do this constantly to Sadness. She doesn’t want Sadness to ruin Riley’s life. Little does she know, Riley needs to be sad in order to grow. Joy tends to become a bit of a bully through out the film as the time goes on. She wants everyone to be happy all the time and feel in the light that she has created. In the end, Joy realizes that Riley cannot be happy all the time and the other emotions are there for a reason. Joy begins to accept, not only Sadness, but the other emotions for who they are as well. Joy is the emotion that represents happiness and all that should go right in the world, only to learn that she needs to let the other emotions take hold sometimes in order to let things change.

A Little Bit of Sadness

The first character poster from Disney/Pixar's 'Inside Out': SadnessYesterday, I blogged about the character Anger from Disney/Pixars Inside Out. But, the importance of being angry in life was not the ultimate message. Growing up can be a tough road, things change and you grow apart from people who you were once close too. All of this can make you feel sad sometimes, making sadness one of the most important core emotions. No one can be happy all the time, yes it is okay to try and brush things off that people say or do to hurt you. But, feeling sad is what makes you realize right from wrong. Why would you want to impose the same pain onto someone else? Why would you want to make someone else feel sad? Sadness is not a sign of weakness, instead sadness shows us that we are all human. It is okay to be sad, because, lets face it, you can’t be happy all the time. If we were all happy and did not feel sadness, then we would not know the important things in life. We would not know how to deal with grief when someone passes or how to overcome obstacles that we have worked hard on. Sadness makes us realize that not all things are meant to be, making Sadness the main core emotion from Inside Out with a message, not just for kids, but for adults as well.

A Little Bit of Anger

Aaaargh! These 'Inside Out' posters -- they just -- GAAAAHHH! THEY JUST KEEP COMING!Last week, I saw Inside Out, the new Disney/ Pixar movie about the little voices inside your head, also known as emotions. The one emotion that I found the most entertaining was Anger, the little red guy said everything that was on everyone’s mind. Never letting anything go, quickly, Anger was there to make things go less smoothly. I am not an angry person, but I was able to relate to Anger the most because of the comedic expertise done by Lewis Black. However, where would we be without anger? Anger is what makes us want to work harder to achieve a goal. Anger is the emotion that has to be controlled the most when we are frustrated. I found myself being able to relate to anger in the movie because of what he represented. Everything does not go your way all the time, but the important thing is to control you anger. This little emotion can go along way if you take things the wrong way. Anger was the emotion in Inside Out with all of the quirky answers to what is wrong with the world. I found Anger had all of the answers to certain things, but not the right answer to everything. Learning to control anger is an important part of life, so is understanding things you cannot change.

Quotes Challenge #3

Audrey...A great role model. She was more than a beautiful woman she was also a great humanitaraian.

There is a lot of pain and suffering in this world an many others need love and care. By taking care of one another is the first step. On a daily basis we hear about the cruelties of the world and those who are suffering the most in those countries. No one deserves to suffer the pain of starvation or the horrors of war. No one deserves to go on through their life without a proper education or drinking dirty water. So many people in the world have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, drink from a soiled river, leave school early to work, and witness the violence of war too early on in life. This quote by Audrey Hepburn, along with this picture, reflects the suffering of then and now in the world. Hopefully, one day there will be a day when none of this existent and everyone has the right to live with human dignity.

Quote Challenge #2

@swakdesigns's photo: "Love this. Where are our Harry Potter fans?"

Lets face it, we live in a world where the skinnier the better. It doesn’t mater if you are anorexic or not as long as you are skinny then you are healthy. This message is one that has been going on for too long started by some people in Hollywood. Today, there are people who are starving themselves just to be thin. There are those who are making themselves sick after they eat just to lose an extra pound. Instead, of starving and vomiting on a daily basis, why not try looking in a mirror and saying what is good about yourself rather than what the world expects from you. So, you ate a bacon cheeseburger with fries for dinner, big deal! One meal is not going to make you unhealthy, as long as you EAT healthy and exercise then you are already making strides to a healthier life. There is more to life than worrying about body image. Diets to the point where you eat nothing but lettuce for months at a time doesn’t do the trick. A healthy diet is the one that you should focus on. By, talking to a doctor or nutritionist to help you out with making changes to your diet. Not by taking the route that makes you sick. Don’t forget it is who the person is on the inside not on the outside.

Quotes Challenge #1

anaphora -noun, the deliberate repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of several successive verses, clauses, or paragraphs "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets." -Winston Churchill

Standing up for what you believe in is not always easy. Sometimes, it can cost you your friends and family as well as respect. But, if you stand up for something that you believe in and know that it is right, then you are already making the right decision. Winston Churchill is one of my favorite people to quote for his quotes are the ones who have had the most profound impact on me. Believe me, it was not easy picking out which one of his quotes to use. The former Prime Minister of England lead Britain through World War II and made a few enemies in his life. Thus, showing that when you stand up for something, the outcome in the end is what is right.

Three Quotes Challenge

This pin is more as a reminder to myself than anything else.  I've learned a little about Churchill, and have always meant to read and learn more. What I know really makes me want to learn more, but I keep reading other things. Maybe on vacation, when I actually take one...I was recently invited to do a 3 Quotes Challenge by Fimnora Westcaw. It was very difficult picking out three quotes as many quotes over the years have inspired me. But, I finally came down to just three quotes that have stuck with me from the moment they taught me a lesson. Here they are:

“You have enemies? Good that means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”-Winston Churchill

J.K. Rowling Shuts Down Homophobic Tweeter... My respect for her is endless“Is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me.”- J.K. Rowling

Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina - 1954“As you get older, remember you have another hand: the first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”- Audrey Hepburn

Here you have it the three quotes that have a profound impact on me. Off to nominate my three fellow bloggers now!
