I hope everyone is enjoying the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Today is brought to you by the letter J (LOL -- I felt like I was on Sesame Street for a second.)
In continuing with my theme of how fairy tales are relevant today...
J = Jasmine
Aladdin is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies and mainly because I loved the character of Jasmine. Sassy and outside the typical Disney beauty profile.
What can we learn from Jasmine today?
Stand up for what you believe in. The Sultan wanted to marry his daughter off and had tradition to back him up. But that was not what Jasmine wanted. And she stood up to him. We have to stay in touch with what really matters and be strong in our efforts to protect those things.
And in the same vein... don't settle. She wanted love, not just a prince. And she fought for it. Don't settle because something gets too hard.
What did you learn from Jasmine?
Jasmine is another princess we explore in War and Pieces: Frayed Fairy Tales, this one written by Kelly Risser and NL Greene. In Season 8, you'll find out more about what happened to Jasmine after the tale you all know and love as she faces a new terror.
