This Morning I Continue to Learn some Valuable Lessons from Dory.

I have learned a lot from Marlin and Dory (the Pixar fish) in the many times my son has watched these movies. I’ll be honest, I usually use this time to get a break! I know that him watching Finding Dory gives me at least an hour of time that he won’t demand something from me when I am occupied with my other son, or chores, or just need a few minutes of peace to myself. But there have been quite a few times where I was close enough to him to hear some pretty inspirational quotes.

Some of my Favorites

About being brave enough to let your child try something hard on their own, so they can learn the lesson and build character and strength:

“Well, you never really know, but when they know, you know, y’know?”

In regards to all the many therapies and parenting strategies I have considered, tried, failed, and tried again:

“Well then, how are we gonna do that unless we give it a shot and hope for the best?”

For the control freak parent with anxiety, your thoughts will tell you all the reasons why you shouldn’t let your child try the thing they really want to try that you think is a bad idea:

“Well, you can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him.”

So this morning I am grateful, that there is inspiration all around us, if we take the time to consider it.

I am just a mom on a journey. Trying my best to do it right. Making lots of mistakes along the way. Enjoying having a community that gets it, to share it all with.

  1. There are SO many great lessons to find in Finding Nemo! When watching it from a Christian perspective, I have surprisingly been inspired. I have even written about it as well! LOL. Love this!


  2. Yes! Absolutely! There are a lot more that have made me think and consider parenting, which in turn also always can be flipped to the father child relationship between God and us as His children! Thanks for your sharing this angle with me! 😉💜
