Disney questions you would love to answer!

This is a open questionnaire for disney lovers. I have answered them first, because….why not!

Haha

So I’d be really happy if you would answer this on your blog.

I am not nominating anyone because idk who all are Disney fans.. but if you are a true fan do answer this and let me know in the comments! ❤️


1. Which Disney Princess story can you relate with the most?

Rupanzel. Idk, most of the times I feel I don’t get as much freedom as I want. Of course, my parents and everyone tries to do the best they can. This is… Just what I feel. And of course I have sooo many dreams!

2. Which Disney song encourages you?

There are many. But “dream is a wish your heart makes” is my all time favourite! It lifts me up when I hit the ground. Gently encourages me to dream and reminds me things will be alright.

3. Which Disney dialogue would you dedicate to your crush/love? (Even from non animated Disney movies)

John Smith: I’d rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you

Pocahontas: I can’t leave you
John Smith: You never will, no matter what happens to me, I’ll always be with you, forever.

4. Which Disney song reminds you of your first love?

Undoubtedly…. Can I have this dance? Wow! What a lovely song!

5. If you could be any Disney villan who would you be?

Mal definitely! From descendents. Or even Maleficent is okay…

6. Which romantic disney scene you’d like to recreate with your love? (Disney princess movies only)

Let’s just consider Anna as a Disney Princess.. Oh come on.. she is the queen now. The one where she gives Kristoff the new sledge. That’s really cute!

Or the ballroom dance from Beauty and the Beast. Damn! I love that ballroom.. 💕

7. What is the best advice/ line from Disney movie for you?

Tbh every disney movie teaches you something wonderful. But now depending on my mood.. the line from Toy Story 4 where Forky says “I’m Bonnie’s trash!” Haha… That was funny. But it just reminded me that no matter how broken, flawed we are, some people love us unconditionally because we are theirs…

8. Which Disney character makes you smile? ALWAYS?

Okay… Let me admit. I even inserted this question in the first place because I wanted to talk about Mickey! Oh come on he deserves appreciation. Isn’t he the cutest! 😍 And yes… He always makes me smile!

9. Name 3 disney characters you’d like to be. I know you can’t, but we can imagine.

Olaf

Mickey

Rapunzel

10. Which Disney pet you’d like to have?

Not pet as such…. But I would definitely loveeeee to have Olaf!


Don’t forget to mention in comments I would love to check out your answers.

Calling #disneylovers 💖🌠

Woman work

I’ve got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I’ve got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The cane to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine
Rain on me, rain
Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.

Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
‘Til I can rest again.

Fall gently, snowflakes
Cover me with white
Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky
Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
Star shine, moon glow
You’re all that I can call my own.

– Maya Angelou

And for all the mothers out there who continually struggle every day to make you happy. Sending lots of love and hugs❤️❤️❤️❤️

Debunking – No pain no gain

Do you follow #motivationalquotes or #hustle on insta?

Chances are, this is the most widely used quote on such hashtags.

But is it true?

Do you really need to suffer pain every time you have to achieve something?


Have you ever played guitar? Or any musical instrument?

If you have, did you notice that after a while, you cannot consciously remember the notes, I mean you feel you’re in flow. Your hands do their job. If you’ve practiced many times, you must’ve felt this. When you think of playing a song, it comes naturally to you. You don’t have to think every time – String 5 fret 3.. string 2 fret 7…

Or maybe when you’re so used to cooking, you do some things naturally. Without being consciously aware.

And how does the food taste? As usual? Delicious?

This can also happen for example when you’re playing football. After lot of practice you get so used to the game that after a while you seem to be doing it effortlessly, you don’t consciously think to kick now.. to move there… It just happens. And when you become aware that you were lost in the game, chances are you will make a error.

The point is – this is flow.

This state is called flow. We all experience this… Loosing track of time, getting absorbed into the thing at hand, we are not conscious, we don’t analyse every move, it just happens.

And how is your performance when such state occurs?

Most of the times it must be wonderful! It’s like you become a pro within minutes!

But what does this have to do with the quote?

If you are in a profession where you experience flow while doing you work.. maybe you’re a dancer, or artist, or writer, or even sportsman, if you experience flow with your work, try to experience the state as often as possible.

My point is that research has shown that you don’t always need pain to succeed. The process of attaining something worthwhile can also be enjoyable and it’s good for your mental and physical health if it’s enjoyable!

We often have this fix mindset that if I’m not feeling pain I’m not working hard enough and therefore I won’t succeed.

It’s not the case.

We exhaust ourselves and those around us unnecessarily if we adapt such mindset.

Flow is when you’re totally immersed in what you are doing, fully concentrating, unaware of yourself. The activity is challenging and engrossing, stretching your skills and expertise.

– Sonja Lubomirksy

So flow activities are not easy. They are challenging and engrossing.

Not too easy, not too hard. Something that also matches your skills and expertise.

Flow leads us to be involved in life, rather than alienated from it. To enjoy activities rather than find them dreary.
To have a sense of control rather than helplessness.
To feel a strong sense of self rather than unworthiness.

– Sonja Lubomirksy

This is just to remind you that work doesn’t always need to involve pain to gain something worthwhile.

Of course, hard work is real and necessary. But it should be satisfying, not extreme to the point of burnout or exhaustion.

Post Traumatic Growth

Yes! You heard that right. Post Traumatic Growth!

I am sure few of you must’ve heard about the concept of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Oh you didn’t? Maybe coz you didn’t study psychology… Haha

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is just as the name suggests. It’s the extreme stress and discomfort you experience after a traumatic event. The traumatic event could be death of a loved one, or surviving extremely painful circumstances.

As these things sound painful and extremely distressing where stress disorder seems obvious, there is also something opposite.

Post Traumatic Growth is defined as positive outcomes arising from traumatic experiences.

How can that be?

You might ask.

Some things are just painful and cannot be related with growth or something positive.

I agree.

Life is hard. Traumatic events don’t always lead to growth or finding meaning in life.

But in some cases, it does.

People experience the trauma. It’s hard. But they survive it. They aren’t thankful that something bad happened, but after that they realise that something has changed. Maybe their perspective towards life, towards themselves, towards their family or maybe now they have deeper appreciation for the present moment.

The concept of meaningful life is challenged during trauma. The questions often raised are “why me?” “what did I do to deserve this?”

This leads to feelings of helplessness and anxiety.

But in some cases, after the trauma there is –

Change in perception – People who have survived extreme circumstances now feel a increased sense of personal strength and confidence. “If I can survive this, I can survive anything”.

They have greater appreciation for life. And they know that it’s fragile. They tend to appreciate present moment more.

They view themselves as survivor. Not a victim.

Changes in Relationships – They tend to form closer ties to family. They realise the importance of family and understand how every relationship matters to them.

They share their feelings more openly. They understand there is no need of bottling up and keeping feelings hidden.

They tend to exhibit more compassion. They understand others better and show more willingness to give to others.

Changes in life priorities – They tend to have more clarity about what is more important in life. For example – they are more likely to make right choices between watching TV or talking to a friend, between scrolling on Instagram or reading a book.

They show a deeper and more spiritual sense of meaning in life.

They are not much concerned with acquiring material wealth. They find satisfaction in what they already have.


The main purpose of sharing this is that we are all going through stressful times. It is like a trauma for all of us. Maybe we can come out of this experiencing Post Traumatic Growth.

Don’t be hard on yourself. Even if you feel stressed and anxious and angry it’s okay. No hurry. Take your time to heal.

Just remember there is a ray of sunshine at the end of this tunnel.💛

Take care guys!!🌼❤️

What I know for sure

I’ve been reading a lot lately. Tbh much of academic stuff. But this is a book I just read – What I know for Sure by Oprah Winfrey.

During these stressful times, I experienced the fact that words do heal.

When I used to watch Oprah’s talks I used to wonder how wise she is, I wonder if there is book written by her, I’d love to read that. That’s when I came across this book. “What I know for sure!” Wow the title itself is so catchy. Of course who wouldn’t want to know what Oprah knows for sure!

I finally decided to read this book and it matched my expectations. I wasn’t disappointed at all.

The way Oprah has talked about all she has learnt over the years in her personal as well as professional life is wonderful. There is everything – from spirituality to work life balance.

She has shared her experiences and everything she has learnt from meeting and interviewing so many wonderful people. There’s so much to learn from her. I have always admired her strength, her genuineness and her wisdom.

She hasn’t exaggerated anything neither has covered her mistakes.

The best thing is that she speaks from her own experience. So it doesn’t feel for a moment that she is preaching about something she hasn’t dealt with. We could relate to her examples and see a part of us, in her.

I love how she has openly talked about the topic most women are concerned with – aging and weight gain. It really helped me shift my perspective towards these things.

At least for me, this is the book I will read again and again when I’m going through rough patch.

These are nuggets of wisdom from the book and the book is filled with these❤️

After reading this, what I know for sure is that you will definitely enjoy reading the book. And more than that you’ll learn something, something that will guide you and encourage you to do your best, something that will heal you during your tough times.

This book could be a really precious gift for someone 💕
