Small hours and little wonders

Have you seen the Disney movie “Meet the Robinsons”? I love this movie! I know “Frozen” was amazing and everyone likes it a lot, but Frozen is no “Meet The Robinsons”.  My girlfriend has the Rob Thomas song “Little Wonders” on her Iphone and since we are creatures of the 00 century we do not listen to the radio anymore it is all I Tunes and downloads for us. Road trips are dominated by her eclectic mix of music and every time I hear Rob Thomas sing about :these small hours and these little wonders and twists and turns of fate’ I can’t help but think about that little yellow haired red glasses wearing protagonist from the movie. He was an orphan looked over and over for adoption. He had no one loved science and every project he worked on was a failure he was ready to quit when a time traveler from the future, who needed his help got his attention adventure happens and our protagonist learned somethings.

He learned that failure is temporary.

Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.


He learned that family matters and the bond that makes and keeps family is love.

In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.

He learned that giving up never ever works.

He learned the best way to get over yourself is to help someone else out.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson



See how could you not love a movie like that? I think this was one of Disneys best movies  yet! I absolutely love the story and the lesons learned are timeless and empowering.

The song too is incredible when you listen to the lyrics it drives home the point that, when we try to do things and fail or succeed what matters more than the accomplishment is the journey to get there. Doesn’t that seem true? I mean when you are going through it and you embrace it whatever it is what remains? What matters. See great movie and song!

Happy Friday everyone!
