I have another confession to make.

You know the new Cinderella movie that just came out on DVD? I kind of love it. A lot.

I may or may not have watched it five or six times already since it came out on DVD.

You guys know I’m a romantic and oh. my. word. is this movie ever romantic!

The whole movie is just SO magical!

But what I love most about it is it’s message:

Have Courage and be Kind

(Image Credit: Paperlue Shop)

There is something so beautifully simple about that message.

It’s simple, but yet it’s so incredibly complex.

Those are two things that this world desperately needs and they are two things that are incredibly hard to do.

But, OH if I could pass on anything to Kit it would be that message.

I see so many hurting people around me that just need for someone to have courage and be kind to them. More than anything I want Kit to SEE those people and to respond.

But I think the biggest reason that I love this message is that it is so, so convicting. It reminds me that I can be better even though I am so often not these things.

I am quick to judge, I can be such a coward. But I WANT to be these things. I WANT Kit to see these things in me.

So I’m just going to keep watching the movie until I become like Cinderella… sounds like a winning plan right?!

Anyway, go see it if you haven’t because it is SO good!

P.S. YES, I did dye/cut my hair and I kind of love it! I was feeling so blah and I needed a change! This is pretty close to my natural color so it will be way less maintenance… ideal for this season of my life. 🙂

Until next time,

Signature

    I have yet to see this movie but after reading your post I am determined to watch it. I love that there’s a positive message being produced for our generation. There’s so much hate and strife we need more brace, loving souls.
    P.s. My daughter has that monkey onesie too!! 🙂

    I keep waiting to stream Cinderella on Netflix but it doesn’t seem to be happening. I’m thinking we’ll watch it often enough to warrant buying it already! Your pictures showed such life and happiness. I enjoyed looking at them!

    My daughter asked for the new Cinderella movie for Christmas, I’m probably going to love it just as much as her. 🙂

    That reminds me of my favorite lyrics- “it’s so easy to laugh it’s so easy to hate, it takes strength to be gentle and kind” – The Smiths

    Hi Karin, I can understand why you love that message. (I haven’t seen the movie, I am in a minions phase at the moment, myself.) (You don’t need to know how old I am, do you? Yeah… ahem.)

    The simplicity of the message is really beautiful and very necessary at the moment. In a world where we’re heavily pointing the finger at enemies (and potential ones who may not necessarily be enemies in reality) we’re going for a lot of courage to cover our fear, but leaning too heavily on a great deal of hate. Courage with hate is poison.

    May the Lord bless you and your beautiful family.

      You said that so well Cate! I honestly couldn’t have said it better myself. And I love the Minions so no judgement here. 😉

    I am OBSESSED with the new Cinderella movie! It is amazing. I too love the message. I’m a new follower, so before I even knew you had changed your hair I was having major hair envy! It looks super good girl!

    Lovely advice, lovely movie (a little toooo sugary for me, but still so good!), and definitely a lovely look. I know it was a minor point in the whole of the post, but I love that most of your items are thrifted. That’s the whole thing about thrifting as a fashion choice- you get such unique items! In addition, it gives you a cheap, more ethical means of trying out trends like moto jackets and ankle boots. You’re killing it!

      It was quite sugary… but that’s why I like it. 😉 And thank you! I totally agree with you about thrifting. It also makes your wardrobe so much more intentional because you’re not just going into a store and coming out with what they have to offer. Does that make sense? I know you feel me. 🙂

      Thanks Chrissy! I’m glad you liked that one! Ha! I have already been nominated for the the Liebster Award, but thank you so much! You are so kind!
