The Disney Movies that Pulled Our Heart Strings

The Disney Movies that Pulled Our Heart Strings

The Disney movies that we have watched growing up made up a large part of our childhood. However, it would be unfair, if we said, “they did” because they still do. Most probably, you still anticipate the release of a new Disney movie, but in the fear that some will catch you bawling your eyes out a Disney movie or laughing until your tummy hurts, you take your kid sister, brother or cousin along with you.

If you gallantly march into the theater without fearing who will catch you, we commend you for your bravery. In fact, you reading this is proof enough that you have a soft spot for Disney movies, and why shouldn’t you, they are great. Since we love our Disney movies too, here are five movies that pulled at our heartstrings and will put at yours too:

1.     The Little Mermaid

Ariel fell in love with a human, but that did not stop her from contacting her soul mate. The bubbly red haired princess with a beautiful voice went to a sea witch, wishing for legs instead of a tail. Even though she met with obstacles, as her voice was taken from her, she managed to get prince Eric head over heels in love with her.

Our heartstrings were pulled when the sea witch in the disguise of a beautiful girl, using Ariel’s voice put a trance on Prince Eric. It was then that we thought that Ariel would not get her dreaming wedding to the man of her dreams. In the end, all worked out, as it always does in Disney movies.

2.     The Lion King

The Lion King made us laugh, smile, but mostly, made us cry. When Simba’s dad fell to his death, Simba raced to his dad’s side trying to wake him up, but the hyenas chased him away. We think even people with cold stoned hearts who do not cry easily cried watching that particular scene. We know we wept like a baby!

3.     Tangled

All Rapunzel wanted to do was escape the tower to see the lanterns, and her wish came true when she captured Flynn with her hair (the expression on Flynn was priceless). What we liked the most was how they slowly fell in love with each other, almost kissing in the boat. When Flynn gave his life to save Rapunzel from the treacherous Mother Gothel, we saw Rapunzel desperately trying to heal and bring him back to life. At that part, we really thought that Flynn was gone and we felt a tear slide down our cheek or perhaps, that was only us. Her tears brought him back to life and the world was in order.

4.     Brave

Merida showed everyone that you do not have to be dolled up to be brave. You can be yourself and be brave. This one was thing we loved about this arrow shooting girl. In fact, she gave Katniss from Hunger Games a run for her money. The touching heart moment came when the mother and daughter bonded or shall we say mother bear and cub.

Which Disney movie pulled at your heartstrings? Be brave and tell us the moment you went aww watching a Disney movie.

How the History’s Most Hated People Taught Us about Life

How the History’s Most Hated People Taught Us about Life

How the History’s Most Hated People Taught Us about Life

“Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
~ Winston Churchill

Historical figures of the past have taught people several lessons about life, people, work, wisdom, and everything in between. In fact, our parents and grandparents might reflect on as historical figures to teach us a lesson about life.

On top of your head, you can probably name a few do-gooders from history who have faced great challenges in life, but have overcome them. We ask; what have you learned from the most hated people in history? Just as we thought, nothing!

Even though we may not necessarily agree with them, we can still learn from their failures, their successes, and their character traits. The villains of history that made our list include:

1.     Genghis Khan

Genghis Khan, the emperor of the Mongol Empire, united several nomadic tribes found in Northeast Asia. In history, he is acclaimed by some historians of bridging the gap between Asia, Middle East, and West by bringing the Silk Road under one political rule. However, other historians offer another image of him, as a ruler whose army mercilessly killed a number of civilians. Putting the two perceptions of the Mongol ruler aside, he believed that in order to lead effectively, one needs to swallow their pride.

2.     Jefferson Davis

Jefferson Davis was a cruel man known for his cruel treatment to slaves and being responsible for taking the lives of a million people during the Civil War. In his efforts to win the Civil War, he made one of the biggest mistakes of his life, a mistake that eventually cost him to lose the Civil War. He appointed his friends to higher positions for which they were not qualified for and sided with them even if they made a mistake.

3.     Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar, the dictator of the Roman Republic or as you may recall, the lover of Cleopatra. You may also know him as the ruler who caused the demise of Roman Republic. He let the power go to his head, and began to ignore the rulings of the senate. When he died, the Roman Republic died with him, as he had killed off strong republican supporters to assume power after him.

4.     Doc Holiday

Doc Holiday was a known gambler and expert gunfighter, but he was more known for his friendship with Wyatt Earp. He blindly listened to Earp without questioning his judgments, teaching people about loyalty.

5.     William Tecumseh Sherman

William Tecumseh Sherman defied the contract of the South by taking aim at civilians and their resources. His superiors warned him not to march south, but he did not listen, as he had the utmost trust in his abilities, even if others did not.

You might not like these men, but that should not prevent you from using them as a source to learn, if not inspiration. Then again, you do not have to learn from the mistakes of these villainous historical figures, as you may have some in real life whose mistakes you can learn from.


You Will Make mistakes.... Learn from Them!

A Selection of Quotes About Learning from Mistakes

“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” ~ Kevyn Aucoin

“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.” ~ John C. Maxwell

“I’m most proud of the blessings that God has bestowed upon me, in my life. He’s given me the vision to truly see that you can fall down, but you can still get back up. Hopefully I’ll learn from my mistakes and have the opportunity to strengthen and improve the next thing I do.” ~ Martin Lawrence

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” ~ Johnny Cash
