FIRST OFF, go see this movie, it is by far in my top 5 favorite Disney Movies. I mean TWO NEW Disney Princesses? Yes Please! Now for those who don’t know, this movie is about the newly crowned Ice Queen and her little sister, who are basically twins. When the Ice Queen, Elsa(Idina Menzel), discovers her powers as a little girl, she accidentally hurts her little sister, Anna (Kristen Bell), making her parents think she should suppress and hide her powers, removing the memory from Anna’s mind that her sister even had the powers. As the two grow older, Elsa must open the castle gates, closed for about fifteen years, for her coronation. Anna, who is extremely excited to see the world and all the people, is the polar opposite of the nervous wreck that is Elsa. Long story short (and with no spoilers), Elsa reveals her powers a bit too much and flees from the kingdom to hide in the mountains, accidentally starting an eternal winter in the middle of summer. The movie is then about Anna’s adventure getting and convincing Elsa to return with her to the kingdom.
The song shown above, Let it go, is sung by Idina Menzel when her character, Elsa, is finally free to show and test these powers that all her life have been seen as bad. As the songs progresses she talks about showing her all and now caring what other people think, which is such a beautiful thing. For someone to be truly and finally comfortable and happy in their own and with being them self is such a hard thing to achieve, and this song is when that turning point for Elsa happens. The song itself is amazing but with that meaning it truly is something spectacular and award worthy for Disney.
I’ve read in Tale of Two Cities, this one character, Carter, is so obsessed with being better than the “drunken idiot” he is that he goes for the most perfect girl, thinking that will somehow change him. Unfortunately he doesn’t see that he needs to accept himself before anybody can accept him. Throughout the book Carter goes from ups and downs, while his counterpart tells him he will always be less than him. If there is someone like that in your life, I’m telling you not to listen. What’s the point in filling your head with those pointless thoughts. You are who you are, accept and live it. If you want to make a better version of yourself, then do it! But love yourself every step of the way.
Thanks for reading
