tip#400). These days I've been feeling incredibly free and extremely grateful for all the help and support I received.
I recently did a movie night with a friend going through his own intense life challenges and he surprised me by choosing Toy Story 3 as the film to see. We ended up being deeply moved at the key lessons the movie mirrored for what I had gone through AND the adversities my friend was now facing:
• Letting go: old life and belongings
• Loyalty: friends and family that help with challenges
• Abandonment: people who were not there to help
• Bullies: people who imposed their will
Toy Story 3 2010
The animated movie Toy Story 3 is part 3 of the series where the toy characters are mistakenly delivered to a day-care centre instead of the attic right before their owner Andy (John Morris) leaves for college. It's up to Woody (Tom Hanks) to help the other toys escape the day-care centre and stand up to the evil toys forcing them to stay.
What unfolds are how the toy characters learn: to let go of the life they knew; to renew their sense of loyalty to one another; to deal with feeling abandoned; to deal with bullies. Andy himself learns how to let go of the toys he loved so much as a child.
The ending packed so much of an emotional wallop that I could finally understand why it was nominated for both Best Animated Feature AND Best Picture having won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. I was stunned at how emotional I got seeing Andy learn to let go of his past and his belongings. Watching this film was like a healing and an exciting confirmation that I was on the right path.
