Princessly Vanellope

Vanellope is new to me. I must admit that I hadn’t seen Wreck It Ralph all the way through until a couple of weekends ago. It’s not that I had anything against Vanellope, but she just wasn’t on my radar.

And then I had a conversation with a valued friend and reader of this blog. It went something like this.

“You should do Vanellope.” – Friend

“Vanellope?” – Me

“Yeah. From Wreck It Ralph. She is a Disney princess after all.” – Friend (looking at my suspiciously like I’m going to aruge with her.)

“She is?! How did I miss that?” – Bewildered Me

OBVIOUSLY a Disney princess…

But Vanellope isn’t just a princess because she has a few photos with the ladies.

Vanellope is a princess because…

  • She’s adorable and she knows it.
  • She’s glitchy, but that makes her unique.
  • She knows she’s a racer, even when others don’t.
  • She’s got a sense of humor.
  • She’s a bad ass.
  • She knows who she is and doesn’t pretend to be anyone else.
  • She cares about others.
  • And she has moments of depression.

I’ve been on the depressed side lately. I am a week or so behind in one medication (switched to online pharmacy) and I haven’t been happy at work. I am really good at playing Animal Crossing, but besides that I haven’t been doing much.

I think Vanellope is here at a good time. She’s someone who knows what she wants and pursues it. So, I really only have one goal for this month. But it’s a two-parter.

Goal for the Month Inspired by Vanellope

  • Acknowledge who I am and what I want to do. Do the thing I want to do/work towards it.

I say “I don’t know” a lot. I don’t know what I want to do or where I want to be in life or how to get there. While this is true to an extent, I hide behind my “I don’t knows”. It’s easier that way.

This will not be an easy goal for me, and it’s going to take longer than a month. But I’m ready to get started.

P.S. This scene from Ralph Breaks the Internet is great!
