Life’s Plot Twists Build Character (inspired by Disney’s Maleficent) by Nicole Etolen | Oct 27, 2014 | Entertainment, Lifestyle | 28 comments Pinterest Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Reddit Email Pinterest Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Reddit Email 28 Comments Robin (Masshole Mommy) on October 27, 2014 at 8:34 am I still have not seen this movie. Crazy, huh? I just got it, though, and am watching it next weekend! Reply Jennifer Williams on October 27, 2014 at 9:12 am Life is usually nothing but twists and turns, that is what keeps it interesting. I also was a single mom – you learn quickly how to provide for your children when you are strong! Reply Liz Mays on October 27, 2014 at 9:30 am I love Olfa, and I didn’t realize you worked with her. That’s awesome! I say the same thing about my twists and turns. They turned me into who I am and I’ve grown a lot over the years, so I appreciate all that I’ve been through to get here. Reply Rena McDaniel on October 27, 2014 at 10:27 am I don’t think I have ever met anyone who’s life went exactly as they had planned and let’s face it, if it did they are probably pretty boring people. It’ s the twists and turns that make us real people with real stories to write about. I love that you chose to do this to support your son and did it. Kudos to you! Reply Heather on October 27, 2014 at 10:43 am I loved Maleficient. I think we have no choice but to deal with life’s problems. Reply aimee fauci on October 27, 2014 at 11:09 am Love love the Party Crasher Video. I did not expect that and I cannot wait to watch this movie! Reply Terry on October 27, 2014 at 11:31 am There are so many things in our life that cause us to choose. Sometimes, choosing the wrong path can lead us into unknown territory. I have been there many times and YES… I feel it has molded me into the person I am today. For instance… if I wouldn’t have left my low down cheating husband…. I would never have found the man I am married to today… One that knows the value of marriage. I am Happy!!!! Reply Jeanine on October 27, 2014 at 12:32 pm We haven’t seen this movie yet! My girls asked if we could watch on Halloween weekend! Sounds good Reply Lois Alter Mark on October 27, 2014 at 1:26 pm I love this post! Yes, life is definitely a series of plot twists! Reply Pam on October 27, 2014 at 4:09 pm I can definitely relate to having a life full of plot twists. You’ve gone through a lot to get where you are! Reply Sarah Bailey on October 27, 2014 at 4:54 pm I have had so many plot twists it is just hard to remember when they don’t happen – but they have made me who I am so I can’t complain. Reply Tami on October 27, 2014 at 7:25 pm This was exactly what I needed to read today. Life can definitely throw us some curve balls, but I think once we are willing to keep playing the game, we’ll be okay. I keep playing and somehow I haven’t struck out yet. My determination and faith in God has helped me deal with life’s twists. Reply Touristmeetstraveler on October 27, 2014 at 9:02 pm I’ve heard great things about this movie, but I haven’t seen it yet! Reply Kristen from The Road to Domestication on October 27, 2014 at 9:14 pm This is really a deep blog post! Thank you for sharing – we are struggling with infertility right now, and I never imagined it would be so hard. I hate that you had to go through it, but I’m thankful you shared your story. You sound like a very strong lady. And I can’t wait until this movie comes out on DVD 🙂 Reply April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition on October 27, 2014 at 9:52 pm Life is definitely full of plot twists. Just when things seem to settle down and get back on track, something else happens. That’s been all of this year for my family but we just keep going and doing the best we can. Reply Ann Bacciaglia on October 28, 2014 at 12:00 am I loved to watch Sleeping beauty as a child and watched it with my daughter as she grew up. I was so excited to see Maleficent when it came out and it did not disappoint. I loved the story of Maleficent. Reply Annie on October 28, 2014 at 1:04 am I loved Sleeping Beauty as a kid. I watched it every single day to my grandma’s horror, lol. I loved Maleficent as well & her side of the story. Reply Carmen Perez (listen2mama) on October 28, 2014 at 8:29 am Can you believe I have not yet had the chance to watch this movie? My daughter saw it with my sister when it came out and they loved it. I have to catch it on demnad. Reply Erica Brooks on October 28, 2014 at 12:28 pm Interesting analogy. I use prayer to get through my lifes plot twists. Reply Krystal's Kitsch on October 28, 2014 at 1:32 pm I can’t wait to see this movie! It’s in my queue! Reply Veronica on October 28, 2014 at 2:15 pm I have not seen Maleficent mainly because my kids didn’t want to see it. The video is coming out soon so I will watch it then Reply Amanda Love on October 28, 2014 at 2:21 pm Thank you for sharing a bit of your life story with us. I can only imagine what it was like having a 3 year old and alone. As for Maleficient, we loved it and can’t wait to own it. Reply Theresa on October 28, 2014 at 2:34 pm Those twists and turn are what make life exciting. You never know what each day will bring. And we LOVED Maleficent! Reply Heidi on October 28, 2014 at 7:37 pm Interesting thoughts on the parallels between life and movies! Glad to hear things are going good for you again! Reply amanda mcmahon on October 29, 2014 at 12:25 am I haven’t watched this yet but I keep it on my “as soon as the time comes” – Do you think it is okay for a 6 year old? I saw it listed under Family Movies on a flight. Reply Aisha Kristine Chong on October 29, 2014 at 1:17 am I feel that.. not everything goes into detail.. but maybe the main idea or goal – is something one can achieve but can never expect that the journey how you get there will be the same exact thing as you visioned it. Reply Farrah on October 30, 2014 at 3:00 am Life definitely has a lot of plot twists. I was a single mom for a short time in life myself. Reply Chrissy Mazzocchi on October 30, 2014 at 1:19 pm I really want to see Maleficent, I am a huge Disney fan along with my kids 🙂 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
