Wendy is a princess because…
- She knows who she is.
- She’s a fan girl.
- She is caring and helpful.
- She has a little attitude,
- but is a hopeless romantic.
- She has an inner joy and innocence.
- Wendy has her fears, but
- She is also fearless.
Some of my favorite Things From Disney’s Peter Pan
- “You Can Fly!”
- Princess Tiger Lily’s badassness
- Tinker Bell’s attitude
- “Your Mother and Mine”
My Goals For the Month, Inspired by Wendy
- Do some “adulting.” I began this a bit with Alice, clearing away some of the nonsense in my life, but I must continue on. I need to make some adult decisions and get things like my own car insurance. (To be fair, I sort of had my own before this. It was part of my parents’, but it wasn’t? I don’t get it.)
- Answer the question: What does it mean to grow up? Do you know?
- Read/Listen to the novel Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. Disney’s Peter Pan is a good movie, but I feel like a lot of Wendy is left of of it. Also, it’s one of my favorite books.
- Do some “kidding.” “Kiding?” (Making up words can be confusing.) I’m not 100% sure I know what I mean by this yet. Do I play with my friend’s kids? Do I find my barbies in the storage shed and play like I used to? Do I find my inner child and embrace her?
- Play make believe. I have an experiment. I’m going to “make believe” I’m a writer and attempt to write something new. We’ll see how it goes. These goals never really seem to be completed, if you look at my past history. I thought if I trick my brain and simply pretend, take the pressure I put on myself away, something will change.
