If you have not seen the 2003 live action Peter Pan movie, you seriously should. It’s a great movie. I’m currently writing a paper on JM Barrie’s novel of Peter Pan, the 1960 TV musical, and the 2003 film.
Watch the film. Seriously so good.
Self-promoting again— I know, it’s annoying, but come play with me on my new Disney blog! A place for pretty much all Disney things, anything that might brighten your day. Just trying to make everyone’s days a little more magical!
disney channel is like that one close friend you had when you were younger that grew up to be an asshole
and cartoon network was the cool one that grew up to be a druggie
nickelodeon is the one that used to have a big imagination but now just a trend follower
and the bbc was the really cool one who turned out to be a homicidal maniac.
Cinderella probably dreamt and wished that her new stepfamily would be kind. She probably wished that her father would live. She dreamt every day that she would be happy. Every day, she dreamt and wished and believed whole-heartedly in her wishes, probably since she was a very young girl. None of those wishes came true. Not a single one. Even her wish to go to the ball looked like it was about to come true, and then didn’t.
The magic was that, one very special moment, when she was at her lowest and had given up on believing, her wish did come true. Cinderella went to the ball.
It doesn’t erase that her other wishes didn’t come true. Of course it wasn’t right that she had to live without her dreams for as long as she did, and lose all that she did. But the magic was that her wishes never stopped waiting for her.
Wishes do come true. Not every single one, maybe not the most important one. But one day, one of yours will, too. Maybe a few of them. And the reason they will come true so beautifully is because they will finally come true, not because they always have.
So when you sit in your room crying, because you wished on a star and it didn’t pull through, or you are thinking of stopping believing in everything you used to believe in, because it doesn’t work, think of Cinderella. Think of how, one day, you’ll get the wish you’ve always dreamed about. Your wishes will still be waiting for you, even when you’ve stopped looking for them; and one day, everything will turn out the way it’s meant to be.
So, please, don’t give up. There is magic all around you. And you should never give up on it, or yourself. Dreams do come true, and so will yours.
