SOL20 Day 22

Last night my sisters insisted on watching Frozen 2. I took them to see this movie in the theaters a few months ago so I wanted to watch something different. They are very persistent so we ended up watching it anyways.

With everything going on I have been stressed out and constantly worrying about things I have no control over. While watching this movie that was a scene that really stuck out to me. In this scene princess Anna asks Olaf if he is okay and he responds “Oh, yeah. We’re calling this controlling what you can when things feel out of control.” This line was exactly what I needed to hear. Right now we are all dealing with something that is out of our control. I have spent countless hours worrying about it and what might happen. Instead, I should be focusing on the things I can control.


  1. It sounds like Olaf, and (I think AA?), are some pretty great sages for this weird period we're all going through. Funny how you can watch the same thing during two very different time frames and have very different things pop out at us. Good catch, and I think you (and Olaf) are definitely right. Good post!

  2. Distracting oneself with movies and shows is a great thing to do. I've binged-watched nearly ever baking competition show on Food Network in the past month. (I'm also home recovering from foot surgery.) We've gotta do what we've gotta do to get by these days.

  3. The world gives us what we need. Sounds like you needed Frozen 2. Great advice.

  4. Yes, yes, and yes. I needed to hear that tonight. Thank you. :)

  5. I like that advice. Olaf...what a dude-his advice is very timely. I know things are hitting me different in this time. Life can be like that.
