Inspiration from Disney

“…I want much more than this provincial life
I want adventure in the great wide somewhere
I want it more than I can tell
And for once it might be grand
To have someone understand
I want so much more than they’ve got planned”

– “Belle”, The Beauty and the Beast

It’s not a secret that I love all things Disney.But Disney has offered me more then just entertainment enjoyment. Disney inspires me. And while I am sure there will  be those that disagree, Disney and their messages will continue to inspire me for the rest of my life. A really big way that they have inspired me? Well for example, the idea of there being “something more than planned” to life, was initially brought to my attention from Beauty and the Beast.

Although I must have have watched Beauty and the Beast a hundred times during my childhood, it was later in my teens that the lyrics of Belle’s song really struck a chord with me and I have not been able to forget them since. While Cinderella is my favorite princess, I feel a kindred spirit in Belle. We both loves books for one, and well, she longed for an adventure in her life as too. While she may be a fictional character and while I am not looking to have quite the same adventure, I like having her to go back to when I need a little reminder to pursue my dreams.




Thanks to Disney for the lyrics that spoke to my heart and gave me the initial inspiration that I could live my life as something more than planned.

  1. Beauty and the Beast was always one of my favorite movies growing up too! I’m not sure that’s what sparked my trip around the world, I think it was more so to visit every Disney Park 😛

    • Ha ha, that is pretty good inspiration as well! Love Disney. I am looking forward to visiting some of the other Disney parks, although Disneyland I think will always be my favourite.

      P.S. I do believe that I follow you on instagram, and I LOVE LOVE your photos. They make my day a little less boring. The pictures are so wonderful, it makes it so easy to imagine myself in that spot.
