16 Quotes From Disney Heroes That Prove They Had It All Figured Out

16 Quotes From Disney Heroes That Prove They Had It All Figured Out

They were our very first companions. We grew up in front of them, watching them, and soaking in their misadventures while they taught us lessons we didn’t even know we were learning.

Whether they were heroes or villains, our favorite Disney characters opened up a window to a world we could only dream of being a part of. Yet, they never really left us. Our hearts still melt when we remember Mufasa, and somehow we’ll always keep the lyrics to “A Whole New World” somewhere in the backs of our minds.

They became a part of our childhood, just like old friends that one day we’ll tell our children about.

But until we do, here are a few quotes to remember when life gets hard.

1. It’s OK to be a little loopy.

“You’re mad, bonkers, off your head! But I’ll tell you a secret: all the best people are.” — Alice, Alice in Wonder Land

    2. Freedom is the best gift.

    “But oh, to be free. Not to have to go ‘Poof! What do you need, Poof! What do you need, Poof! What do you need?’ To be my own master. Such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world.” — Genie, Aladdin

      3. Don’t just watch life pass you by.

      “Take it from an old spectator. Life’s not a spectator sport. If watchin’ is all you’re gonna do, then you’re gonna watch your life go by without ya.” — Laverne, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

        4. Get out of your comfort zone.

        “You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.” — Pocahontas, Pocahontas

        poca

          5. You get what you give. Give love. Loads of it.

          “Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.” — Winnie, Winnie The Pooh

            6. Some people are worth figuring out.

            “Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what outside, but what is inside that counts.” — Aladdin, Aladdin

            aladdin

              7. You will never know how great you can be unless you try.

              “You must be imaginative, strong-hearted. You must try things that may not work, and you must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul. What I say is true – anyone can cook… but only the fearless can be great.” — Gusteau, Ratatouille

              ratatouille

                8. So, try. If it doesn’t work, then try harder.

                “I am on my way, I can go the distance. I dont care how far, somehow I’ll be strong. I know every mile, will be worth my while. I will go most anywhere to find where I belong.” — Hercules, Hercules

                hercules

                  9. Surround yourself with people that care.

                  “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.” — Winnie, Winnie The Pooh

                  winnie

                    10. Take the blame and learn to make better choices.

                    “Look, I’m sorry your life turned out so bad. But don’t blame me you messed it up yourself. You just focused on the bad stuff when all you had to do was… let go of the past and keep moving forward…” — Lewis, Meet The Robinsons

                    lewis

                      11. Keep your eyes open.

                      “If you focus on what you left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead. Now go up and look around.” — Gusteau, Ratatouille

                      Ratatouille

                        12. Failing is everyone’s story.

                        “From failure we learn, from success not so much.” — Lewis, Meet The Robinsons

                          13. Leave the past where it belongs.

                          “Ah, yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it…or learn from it.” — Rafiki, The Lion King

                            14. Challenges and heartaches will make you grow.

                            “The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” — The Emperor of China, Mulan

                                  How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

                                  How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

                                  Think you have a boring life?

                                  The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

                                  Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

                                  1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

                                  What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

                                  Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

                                  2. Go Play with Kids

                                  Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

                                  They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

                                  3. Order a Hot Dog

                                  While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

                                  4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

                                  Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

                                  5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

                                  You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

                                  You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

                                  6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

                                  Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

                                  Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

                                  7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

                                  Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

                                  What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

                                  8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

                                  You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

                                  9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

                                  Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

                                  10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

                                  We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

                                  11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

                                  It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

                                  12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

                                  This will give you something to look forward to.

                                  Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

                                  13. People Watch

                                  Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

                                  People are infinitely interesting.

                                  14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

                                  Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

                                  15. Dance

                                  You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

                                  If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

                                  16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

                                  This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

                                  17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

                                  Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

                                  18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

                                  Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

                                  19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

                                  OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

                                  20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

                                  This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

                                  Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

                                  Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
