23 things Disney movies have taught me :)

All those who say Disney movies are only for kids, are wrong. The characters even though, born on paper, say and do things that are not just entertaining but also wonderful and inspiring. In this post, I’m listing a few:

1) Believe in your dreams


~ “A dream is a wish your heart makes.” – Cinderella ~

(yes, the consistent Disney movies theme, and I love it)

2) Nothing’s better than friends


~ “Nuffin’s  better than a friend!” – Thumper, Bambi ~

(Well said, you cutie fella!)

3) Listen to your heart


~ “Tell me, Princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?” – Aladdin ~

(mmm… OK yeah, may be not all the time though)

4) Be polite


~ “Say ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’ even if you’re feeling grumpy.” – Snow White ~

(Easier said than done, but yeah – I need to practice this)

5) Be patient


~ “Even miracles take a little time.” – Fairy Godmother, Cinderella ~

(God, give me patience and give it to me now)

6) Never give up on hope


~ “When the world says ‘give up’, hope whispers ‘try one more time”. – Ariel, The little mermaid ~

(Yup… tried and tested *thumbs up*)

7) Be crazy


~ “You’re mad. Bonkers. Off your head…but I’ll tell you a secret… all of the best people are.” – The Mad Hatter, Alice in wonderland ~

(Wow! Justifies my awesomeness *winks* Thank you Hatter)

8) Be adventurous


~ “Adventure is out there!” – Up ~

(Adventures – without them, call me DEAD!)

9) Be focused


~ “I never look back darling. It distracts from the now.” – Edna, The Incredibles ~

(Right! So I was saying … *Whatsapp ping” … oh hey who’s that? *starts chatting*)

10) Choose wisely


~ “Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it you can either run from it or learn from it.” – Rafiki, Lion King ~

(Some words of wisdom from the baboon – always try to remember them)

11) Keep working towards your goals


~ “Just keep swimming” – Dory, Finding Nemo ~

(This is my fave movie & I totally love Dory)

12) Keep promises


~ “And when I promise something I never ever break that promise.” – Rapunzel, Tangled ~

(ahem… ahem… yeah OK I remember I promised to blog regularly, come on, I’m trying, really  *puppy face*)

13) Nothing’s beautiful than a beautiful soul


~ “Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” – Merchant, Aladdin ~

(This is deep, like, literally)

14) Believe in yourself


~ “The things that make me different are the things that make me.” Winnie the Pooh ~

(Someone very close to me keeps me reminding of this, thank you H)

15) You’re never too old to dream


~ “You’re never too old to wish upon a star.” – The Princess and the frog ~

(Dunno whether any wish I wished upon a star ever came true, but I still continue to do that *chuckles*)

16) Follow your heart


~ “I just needed to get out on my own, live my own life. And I did, and it’s great.” – Simba, Lion King ~

(Been there, done that. It does feel great. High-five Simba!)

17) Miracles happen only when you believe

~ “All you need is faith, trust and little pixie dust.” – Peter Pan ~

(Faith – check, trust – check, waiting for some pixie dust 😀 )

18) Age is just a number


~ “You’re never too old to be young.” – Snow White ~

(Hope I remember this when I do grow old)

19) Be strong, stay beautiful

large (1)

~ “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” – Fa Zhou, Mulan ~

20) Never stop believing in your dreams


~ “No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true.” – Cinderella ~

(Keep believing, keep wishing, keep dreaming!)

21) ‘LIVE’, don’t just ‘SURVIVE’


~ “I don’t want to survive, I want to live.” – Captain, Wall-e ~

(This one is profound!)

22) A well spent ‘today’ stays forever as a happy memory

~ “Today’s special moments are tomorrow’s memories.” – Genie, Aladdin ~

(Love this big guy!)

23) Last but not the least – Forget all your worries.


~ “Hakuna Matata. It means no worries for the rest of your days.” – Lion King ~


*starts singing* OK gotta go watch the song now!

  1. I love this and just posted it on Facebook – I’m sure much to the dismay of my feminist friends 🙂 What can I say, I’m a Disney fan? Thanks for following me on Cold, btw. It’s not quite Disney there, but the things that make me different are the things that make me me.
