As I’ve been considering the things I hope to instill in my young daughter, I’ve been thinking about the wonderful life lessons in Disney films. So, I made a list of the ones that resonated the most.
Here are some of my favorite Disney life lessons.
1. Tangled: Face your fears.
It’s important to face your fears head-on, as Rapunzel did when she left the tower. You’ll never truly know if you don’t try.
2. Up: Appreciate the little things.
Throughout Up, Carl is pursuing the “big adventure” that he never had with Ellie, but in the end realizes that his relationship with her was the real adventure. After all, it’s really more about the journey than the destination, as Carl discovered.
3. Monsters, Inc.: Don’t judge a book by its cover.
You can’t tell what someone is like simply by looking at them, just as Sulley and Mike discovered of little Boo. You have to get to know them for what’s inside, because that is what truly matters.
4. Mulan: You are strong.
Just like warrior Mulan helped defeat the Huns, you can accomplish great things.
