Get Back Up Again (Trolls movie) what can we learn from it? 

From the movie Trolls by DreamWorks, which came out last year (2016), there is a song from it called, “Get Back Up Again”. The girl troll in the music video is named Princess Poppy. Trolls are happy little creature who sing, hug, and party. Princess Poppy’s friends are captured by a bergen who is going to give them to the bergen king to eat. The Bergens think that if they eat a troll it will make them happy. In the music video Princess Poppy is journeying to the Bergens’ land to save her friends. Watch the video and think about how it can apply to you.

What a fun music video! “Get Back Up Again” is one of my favorite songs. Did you find anything that could apply to you in the video? One of the messages the song has is to not give up.  Princess Poppy is trying to stay positive even when dangerous creatures attack and things aren’t going so well. We can learn from her example that even when things aren’t going well or not the way we want them to be, we should stay positive and get back up again. Don’t give up. When toddlers fall down when they are learning to walk, they get back up, they keep trying. Jesus Christ made a way for us to get back up again. Christ’s Atonement helps us to get back up. When we make mistakes we shouldn’t give up. We should get back up again by repenting and then trying to do better.  When are times you have got back up again?

Don’t regret your mistakes…

Ever done something, and thought about it later with regret? Shame? Humility?

We all have regrets, things we wished we had not done, but it’s all part of God’s plan. He knew we would go through this. He knew we learn from our experinces.

One day we might think back on it with gratitude to be taught that lesson while you were young…

Through our Father’s eyes…

I love this song!

The video shows two things that we sometimes let control our life…

  1. Mirror
  2. Scale

Those two things can change how we look at the world, and ourselves. They can take away our confidence, and make us feel less than what we are…Do not let the mirror & scale control you, because the number that is on the scale does not matter. When you look in the mirror you should think positive things about yourself…Because the people who love you, do not see a number of how much you weigh, or one tiny bump that you have on your face, or an uneven eyebrow…They see a beautiful daughter of God, full of compassion, talents, and divine virtue.

I Believe…

This is one of my favorite sayings! It’s part of a song I learned at girls camp called “The Chloe Song”. Here are the complete lyrics:

When on life’s valley floor,

The future can’t be seen.

You wonder what Is on the other side;

And when you reach the top,

You realize you’ve found

The answers that the mountains used to hide.

 

I believe in the sun

Even when it’s not shining.

I believe in love

Even when I’m alone.

I believe in God

Even when He is silent.

I believe the answers will be known.

 

How can you say you know all things,

And this life isn’t fair?

Don’t you know you’ll understand,

Somehow, sometime, somewhere?

 

I believe in the sun

Even when it’s not shining.

I believe in love

Even when I’m alone.

I believe in God

Even when He is silent.

I believe the answers will be known.

This song is all about having faith and hope through the trials and knowing that God will carry us even when it’s hard. The mountains will end one day and you will have a beautiful view!
