Anna, depression, Disney, frozen, princess

Princessly Anna

I don’t know about any of you, but my anxiety the past few days has been through the roof! The world is changing and it’s changing fast. I’m having a hard time keeping up with it.

Having said that, I’m very glad that this month my princess is Anna.

Anna is a princess because…

  • She’s confident with who she is and isn’t afraid to be her quirky self
  • She has a calming presence for those who love her
  • She loves unconditionally
  • And is loyal
  • She’s competitive
  • Is brave
  • And she can throw a mean punch

When the world seems turned upside down…

She keeps going to do “the next right thing.”

And that’s all we can do, right?

I have a new appreciation for Anna since seeing Frozen 2. I liked her in the first movie, but I was so focused on how much Elsa and I seemed to be alike in our depression, Anna was pushed to the background.

I think, though, when I’m feeling good I’m quirky and loyal, etc. So, as I watched Frozen 2 I decided to focus on Anna and I discovered that I freakin’ love her!

I really do think she’s going to be a comfort in this month of uncertainty and change. I hope I can be like Anna and grow and learn from what the world has in store.

So…

My Goals for the Month Inspired by Anna:

  • When I am down and depressed or anxious, I will work on “doing the next right thing.” This is very difficult for me to do because when I’m having a bad moment, it’s all consuming. There’s no room for anything else. But, I want to work on ways to get myself out of those moments, even if I don’t want to.
  • Embrace my weird. I try to hide it sometimes, but maybe the world is missing out on something?
  • Have a game day. In Frozen 2, the gang plays charades. I’m going to have a Disney game day with a friend!
  • Embrace change to the best of my ability!

I hope everyone out there stays healthy and optimistic!
