In fact, Walt Disney’s objective was not to create films essentially for children but for the child in all of us.

At the surface level, a majority of Disney’s movies appear to be lighthearted, cheery and elementary, however, when you survey the themes, messages and characters more closely, you’ll often find golden nuggets of wisdom hidden throughout.

In reality, Disney’s movies hold such an abundance of fundamental “life lessons” that adults sometimes need to be reminded of too.

Top five Disney truths to live by

 “The seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake.” – The Little Mermaid

This statement reminds us that there’s always going to be someone who has more than you and that may look appealing; but to focus on what other people have rather than acknowledging your own blessings doesn’t do any good.

“I never look back darling! It distracts me from the now.” – The Incredibles

Spoken by perhaps one of the most iconic characters, Edna Mode, she provides straightforward advice that we’ve all heard before; to be present in the moment and to not dwell on the past.

Although it’s common to hear something like this, it remains a challenge for most people to simply be in “the now”, despite the myriad of research that proves present living is instrumental in maintaining a happy state of mind.

“A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.” – Winnie the Pooh

It’s easy to get caught up in our own daily lives; full of busy schedules and stress. We tend to forget that people around us may be in need of a little kindness and support. As such, it’s important to consciously remind yourself that everyone is experiencing life in a different way and sometimes a smile or a few moments of your time can make somebody else’s day.

“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” – Beauty and the Beast

This is the classic “don’t judge a book by its cover” mindset which in this day and age of visual media and marketing is not always as easy to apply as it sounds.

“Most everyone’s mad here.” – Alice in Wonderland

Far too often we limit ourselves from doing something due to our own fear that  we may be perceived as weird or crazy when in fact we are all a bit weird and crazy in our own way. And it’s this wonderful “weirdness” and uniqueness that draws us to each other.
