Yes, I am an avid Disney fan but their versions of our classic tales are a bit watered down compared to their original counterparts. Hansel & Gretel's parents left them in the woods on purpose, Sleeping beauty was raped, and the wolf actually ate the grandmother. Most of the stories had some pretty gruesome revenge aspects to them but only to show the consequences of harmful actions.
While I have a few personal favorites; Mulan, who showed me that even girls can fight like badasses and we must fight for what we believe in. Belle, because she liked to read, she was creative and thought outside the box, not to mention she loved adventure. But my absolute favorite that will always hold a special place in my heart...Snow White. The A severely underrated princess with one of the strongest stories.
Snow was the princess that I related to the most. Her love of animals, forest and the seven dwarves. Even though she was being hunted by the queen she still found the heart to take care of strangers and make friends. She believed the best in everyone and even though life has it's darkness, she still saw moments of sunshine. In some versions she knows how to fight and hunt, she is strong willed and forceful. She believes in love and wants nothing more than happiness for all. Something I have held strong beliefs in all my life.
What's your favorite fairy tale? What story or character do you relate to the most? What story helped you in/through the dark times? And what story holds the most meaning for you? Use these qualities in your every day life and help make your world a brighter more magical place.
