A Lesson from Disney

Hi everyone!

Back on the lockdown series…

Pubs in the UK opened up this week! However, government regulations still maintained that pubs needed some level of caution and so social distancing measures are still in place. In other news, the Surrey Sports Park is also reopening this coming week! And just like the pubs, the sports park will also have social distancing measures in place such as requiring gym-goers to use a booking platform.

Recently I subscribed to the Disney plus service for my own streaming entertainment. I managed to rewatch some public favourites like Frozen and Frozen 2. The latter being my own personal favourite yet surprisingly not getting as much limelight as the former.

There are some things that you expect from a Disney musical animation; like really talented voice actors and good music, an interesting plot, creative and detailed animations… but recently when I watched Frozen 2, I managed to pick up something I did not expect… a life lesson.

For anyone not familiar with the Frozen film, it is a story of two sisters, Anna and Elsa. Elsa has magical powers and struggles to navigate through life, but the love her sister Anna has for her, helps her push through the obstacles she faces in life. In Frozen 2, Elsa longs for answers of the source of her powers, she faces the inner conflict of leaving all she knows and to venture “into the unknown”. In the end, she ventures out and discovers that she already had all that she was looking for… within her.

I picked this up, particularly because there are so many parallels I can draw from this to my own life. In many ways, I am venturing “into the unknown”; with a new placement, with having to work from home, with having to learn online, with moving to a new town, and in many ways, all I need is to trust the process and my abilities. More on this in blogs to come!

Hoping and praying that everyone remains safe during this time.

That’s all for now folks,
