We recently watched the movie, “Instant Family” and were pleasantly surprised. It was a GREAT movie! It was not a sappy feel good movie, it was emotionally powerful. I thought it was going to slap stick humor, instead it made me and my family laugh, cry, get upset and also want to be better. It was funny, heartwarming, heart tugging, enriching and wonderful to watch.

The movie seemed realistic because it made us want to be foster parents, but also made us very scared about becoming a foster parent. We thought it was great and I strongly recommend all to watch it. We saw it on Amazon Prime, it is also at video stores if any are left, and you can stream it from multiple sources. Below are two the trailers.

The movie also demonstrated that it takes work to be good, it doesn’t just happen (see last weeks post, Sharing “Atomic Habits” Wisdom from James Clear …).

To practice paneugenesis it takes effort. Practicing paneugenesis helps you earn the right to feel good. To me this movie also demonstrated how we can generate comprehensive benefits by creating pervasive, reciprocal, selfish, selfless, synergistic interactions so everyone and everything benefits – in the long run. The short run, as they showed int his movie, is often messy. I am sure you can relate.

When you watch it , please share your thoughts in the comments below.

Make it great holiday season by Practicing Paneugenesis!

Be Well’r,
