This week we rented Kung-Fu Panda 3 from Redbox. L and I had gone on a momma-daughter date to see the movie in theaters, but I figured the boys would love it too. The banter is just as funny as the previous Kung-Fu Panda movies, but what I really love about this installment of the trilogy is the message.
Get ready....I'm about to get really deep with a cartoon.
In the very last fight scene, Kai (the bad guy) asks Po, "Who are you?"
To which Po responds, "I've been asking the same question. Am I the son of a panda? The son of a goose? A student? A teacher? Turns out, I'm all of them. I am the Dragon Warrior."
Ok, you probably think that I'm off my rocker, but bare with me.
Po's response is EXACTLY what I want to share with women and the world here on Full & Simple.
Am I a mother? A wife? A blogger? A gardener? A beekeeper? A home decor lover? I am all of those! I am a daughter of Christ created to be unique and to share that with the world, and you are too!
I highly recommend that you watch this movie with your kiddos and teach them to embrace all of their loves. Teach them to ignore the world's idea that we have to be only one thing...unless that one thing is to be wholly themselves.
