Several weeks ago, I heard a grown man cry while relaying the story of how Kung Fu Panda changed his life.

Profound changes in our lives often come from the most interesting places.

Finally got around to watching it, though it is currently on its third iteration in theaters.

Take aways.

  • Your parents dream may conflict with your own.
  • When you plant a peach seed you get a peach tree.
  • It is very difficult to bear the weight of others expectations.
  • Sometimes the only thing special about something is the belief that it is special.
  • Sometimes we don’t even know what it is we are chasing, don’t let the dream of nothing become a prison.
  • Other people may not understand, appreciate, like, befriend, or accept you. Keep being you.
  • There are no accidents.

Go be you.
