Falling with Style

I love the movie Toy Story! If we’re being honest, I don’t think there is a Disney movie I dislike, even the made for TV ones that somehow suck me in. There is something about the Toy Story movies though, that really hit home with me. Maybe it’s because I have an overactive imagination, or maybe because my pop always had “‘creatures” around the house that were his alter egos, ones that talked and had larger than life personalities. I don’t really know, but there are days when I’m outside and I realize the clouds in the sky look like Andy’s room, and sometimes when I can’t find my phone I wonder if the “creatures” that live in my own house have taken it and hidden it away.

More so, there is a scene in the move where Buzz is showing everyone that he can “fly”, Woody adamantly rejects this and tells the other toys “that’s not flying, its falling with style”. The first time I heard this I thought, that’s me! I’m one of those people! You know the ones, that for the most part look like they have it together but may not have it all together all the time. Yup, me! the one that can put together all the right pieces to an outfit, make my hair behave, get the makeup just right and forget my shoes when I’m leaving the house. I can plan a Thanksgiving meal down to the consistency of the gravy, but still have to send my husband to the store two or three times because I forgot the extra pound of butter.

Falling with Style to me means, while not everything may be going my way, I know that I have truly tried my best, and I’m hoping I at least looked good while doing it. Sometimes it’s the reminder to me that not everything can be planned and life needs to be enjoyed for all of the small things that do go right and not to focus on the one that doesn’t.

Do you have a falling with Style moment?
