A Minnie Challenge

Tomorrow I go back to the office. I’ve had a lot of thoughts about having to return, most of them negative. Wait, wasn’t I supposed to think positive this month? Oh yeah… I have an idea for a “Minnie” personal challenge. Tomorrow, I’m going to channel Minnie Mouse and her positive, can-do attitude. I’ll smileContinue reading “A Minnie Challenge”

A Minnie Mouse Tea Party

Minnie Mouse had a tea party last night! It was a lovely evening and Minnie Mouse had the perfect tea party companions – herself! Lots of tea party things happened. Tea was poured, sugar was stirred. There were delicious cucumber sandwiches and desserts! Minnie Mouse can’t wait for her next tea party! The End

Princessly Minnie

Minnie Mouse is definitely different than the other princesses on this blog. It’s been 92 years since Minnie was featured in Steamboat Willie, and she’s changed throughout out the decades. Not to mention she’s had many roles in the shows, movies and games she’s been in, like I mentioned before. Despite all her evolutions, MinnieContinue reading “Princessly Minnie”

No Business like Bow Business

I’m trading in my tiara for a bow this month. Why, you may ask? Because this month is all about Minnie Mouse! I have a lot of research to do because Minnie has been around awhile, and she’s in many movies, tv shows, games and shorts! But I’m up for the task. I’m excited toContinue reading “No Business like Bow Business”

Don’t Stop Searching

I planned to use Raya’s search for Sisu as a metaphor for searching for hope when depressed. Please excuse me while I go vomit– that’s SO corny, Catie. What I do want to say is, I admire Raya and her determination to find Sisu. I think many in her situation would’ve given up. Giving upContinue reading “Don’t Stop Searching”

Give a Little, Get a Little

I purchased an exercise program. Yes, me and exercise. In the same sentence! It’s more of a wellness program, though, because there’s journal prompts and a lot of talk about self-love and self-acceptance. Two things I struggle with. This month a goal of mine is to trust myself. I didn’t really think on how difficultContinue reading “Give a Little, Get a Little”

Raya’s Search for Sisu

In the beginning of the movie, Raya has been searching for Sisu for 6 years. I thought it would be fun to recreate some of her search. (I also have a big metaphor for it coming up too.) See below for the search with Raya and Tuk Tuk too! “A new river to check. WeContinue reading “Raya’s Search for Sisu”

Princessly Raya

Raya might have some trust issues and some anger issues, but she has easily become one of my favorite princesses. Raya is a princess because… She makes a good entrance, She’s a bad ass fighter, She’s got an animal sidekick And loyal friends, Well, eventually… She’s determined And she’s hopeful. My goals for the monthContinue reading “Princessly Raya”

Notes on Raya and the Last Dragon

Note: This whole month is a giant spoiler if you haven’t watched the movie. If you haven’t, go get a free trial of Disney+ (since that’s the only excuse for not being able to watch it) and well, watch it! I decided to change things up this month, save my photoshoot for mid-month and performContinue reading “Notes on Raya and the Last Dragon”

Dear Princesses

Dear Princesses, I am struggling with my depression and anxiety. I’m still able to go to work, but it’s a struggle, and doing anything else with my free time besides relaxing feels impossible. My counselor says I can do anything for 5 minutes. My support group says recovery is not a straight line. My anxietyContinue reading “Dear Princesses”
