So I faced, not a fear exactly, but something that I have been putting off for a long time.. I went to the movies for the first time in ages and saw The Secret Life of Pets. Oh my goodness! It was so cute. The idea of what our pets do when we are gone is hilarious. It matches the saying, “When the cat is away, the mice will play”. I know I am not a critic like Kevin McCarthy is, but this animated movie really entertained me. I felt bad when Max tried to get Duke home to his owner and he wasn’t there. That must have been so heartbreaking. And they threw in a little romance between Max and Gidget, which was cute.
Going to the movies with my aide was very relaxing. I haven’t gone in years and I enjoyed myself. I did the sensory screening and it wasn’t too bad. Now I hope to see Finding Dory. Facing a fear or anxiety isn’t always easy. It takes effort and determination to face one and that’s what I need to do. I didn’t watch too much television growing up and now I’m behind the times. But nevertheless, I will catch up. Don’t do this to yourself. Paying attention to entertainment is crucial for everybody in this day and age. Everybody, including children, needs that basic understanding of what’s going on around them.
