Good evening, my lovely readers.

A little update before I get too much into what I’m about to discuss with all of you. I was meeting a friend at the college I’m currently attending during the night time. I kind of, fell down the stairs. He caught me just in time before I tumbled but I still have a horrible scar from the top of my knee all the way to my foot. Ouch, right? Anyways, let’s get to it!

Guess who went to Disneyland on Friday? This girl, right here! I went for an early birthday celebration and today is my birthday! So, thinking about Disney, got me thinking. I realized how much Disney has influenced my life. Heck, Disney basically shaped me into the person I am today.  I wish I was kidding but I’m not. I’m not ashamed about it either. My heart will always have a Disney side and will always be a Disney Addict.

Disney shaped into the person I am today for a number of reasons. First of all, it encourages me to be ambitious. When you look at the movie Pocahontas, it teaches people to step out of their comfort zone. My readers, you’re looking at a girl who has been home schooled during her high school years, she never had a job, and was pretty much sheltered through out her life. I knew nothing of the outside world until I decided to take a chance. I want to see what is out there for me. I want to explore and find out who I am. Basically, Pocahontas taught me the lesson of never knowing what could be waiting for me just around the riverbend. Another thing Disney taught me is to persevere. Princess and the frog taught me about achieving goals no matter what. The way Tiana presents herself remind me that I should after the things I want but to remember that I already have everything I need. It takes patience and determination. Tiana achieved her goals even though it took her ages to build, buy, and open the restaurant with Prince Naveen. Lastly, Disney taught me to believe in myself. In the beginning of Frozen, Elsa, was too afraid to be apart of anything. She hid behind a door and wouldn’t even come out to play with her younger sister Anna anymore. When I was growing up, I felt the same exact way because I was too shy. I was too afraid of being myself because I was too scared of being mocked or judged by others. Just like Elsa, I wanted to build an ice wall around me where I could hide myself from others. One day, I decided to let it go. Other people’s expectations around me no longer seemed relevant unless that person was important to me. Elsa ended up believing in herself and was happy at the end of the movie. She knew that her sister loved her, just like how I know my friend’s and family love me.

♥ Never give up, my lovelies! ♥
