So, I have been this girl who’s grown up reading fairy tales , watching Disney movies. Well, apparently the first thing that comes to out mind , when I say about the disney movies are the happy endings. No!!!! There is more to it. Its just not just the things that lead to happy endings. We all have happy endings but if only if we chose to have them.
Here’s the list of ten things that disney movies taught us :
1. ACCEPT WHAT YOU ARE :
Most of the problems that we face today are because we do not accept ourselves. We try to imitate someone , try to be someone. One of the best lessons I learnt from ” The lion king” was that you can’t run away from your identity.What matters in the end is who you are. Accepting yourself and making the best of it . You are never going to achieve anything by denying the fact. In fact, we lose out on a lot in the process of turning out to be someone else.
2. NEVER RESTRAIN FROM HELPING OTHERS
We all know the story of the Snow White. She was helped by seven dwarfs who had no benefit in helping her. They tried to help her in the best possible way without having any benefit to themselves. Many a times we meet a lot of such people who go out of their way to help us, without expecting anything in return.
3.YOU CAN NEVER BE DESPONDENT
We all know how much Cinderella went through. She had an evil step mother and two selfish step-sisters. They were the people who used her just as their slave. Even in extreme situations, Cinderella didn’t lose hope. She did what was right. At the right time , her life took a transformation when the god mother came and transformed her into a person she never imagined she could be. Despite everything , she forgave her sisters and mother for everything that she had done.
5. NEVER LOSE HOPE
Sleeping Beauty was cursed when she was born. It was as if the world ended even before it started. Years rolled by, until one day when everything changed. A prince walked by in the kingdom, kissed the sleeping princess, to wake her up. Life changed even though it took a long time. So , always wait till its your time .
6.NEVER KILL THE CHILD INSIDE YOU
Peter Pan always has taught me not to kill the child inside me . What’s life if we become all serious about it . Nobody takes us seriously, so why bother to take it seriously.
I learnt its important not to kill the kid within ourselves even if grow up
Its okay to watch cartoons
Its okay to spend money on the things that you like
Its okay to be obsessive over something you really love
Fight for what you really want, no matter what the world thinks
7. ITS OKAY TO OPEN YOUR REAL SELF IN FRONT OF A FEW PEOPLE
Flynn Rider though a thief, confesses his real name to Rapunzel , irrespective of the kind of reactions from her. This is something we all need to know. We all have that one face that nobody knows. We don’t know if people will accept us with our pasts. But its important to share your dark shades with people who matter to you
8. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS
We all have that one dream that defines us. There are of course challenges in life, but the dreams are something very important. And its even more important to wake up and pursue that dream facing all the challenges. Aladdin has always taught me no matter who you are, no matter where you belong pursue your dreams even if it means facing the entire world against you.
9. GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Rapunzel was a girl who was caged for the 18 years of her life. All she wished for was to see those magical lanterns. She fought against her mother, against all the odds , got out of her comfort zone . She had to go through a lot of challenges on her way to see those lanterns. Now how are we different from her. Even we wish to see the lanterns , thousands of lanterns. Here, by lanterns I mean the secret wishes we have. For some , it may be a holiday abroad, for some it may be education or work abroad . For some it may be the secret dream you wished was fulfilled.
10.YOU CONTROL YOUR DESTINY
Sometimes we feel that destiny has something in store for us. We always blame the destiny for our inefficiencies. When we don’t get something, its because ” may be that was not there in my destiny”. You had the rein of destiny in your hand. You are responsible for everything that happens in your life. If you have some kind of misery in your life, then you have the ability to sort out that misery . Whining about the challenges in your life won’t solve your problem.
