This weekend one of my favorite Disney movies was released as a live-action film. As you probably know I’m talking about Beauty and the Beast. Belle was one of the first Disney princesses whom I connected with. She was intelligent, focused on more than just finding her one true love. She was different and I liked that.
Of course I then began thinking about enjoying things made for kids. You probably know this by now but I’m a firm believer in holding onto that kid inside of you. I love toys, animated movies, and most other things that are made for children. I learned from my mom the importance of always holding onto your child-like wonder with the world. Enjoy toys and games. Laugh as often as you can. Be kind and help others. I don’t know what it is about growing up but I feel like as we age we’re taught to only look out for ourselves. We ask how something or someone will help us. How will our lives be improved? While kids just want to have fun and be happy.
So yeah. I’m holding onto that little kid inside that used to wear a handmade cowboy hat. I’m holding onto the Littlest-Pet-Shop-collecting, jelly-shoe-wearing kid that used to love playing in the mud and matching color with color.
How about you?
