“Wake up Sleeping Beauties!”
~~~ Warrior began a video with that profound statement as I just froze thinking of my Sleeping Beauty references. 👑😴He was talking about getting physically disciplined of course but the Disney animated movie and him have something in common. They were both “born” in 1959. I have said that before but it does link them and I together in a way…
We are all just kids at heart really. Remember how you loved hearing the same bedtime story over and over again as a kid? How about playing your favorite game multiple times until you won? Maybe you have these memories also with your own children or like me when teaching little ones. They like their routines just like we do. As adults, we like many things too– including comic books and movies ( look above!)
Did you like something or come to love it as a kid and still do? You die hard wrestling fans will understand although I wasn’t super young. This is the same idea with movies, books, or anything really at all. The wrestlers have their brand of familiarity with music, gear, moves, and slogans but so do those classics we know too well. Not exactly the same but am sure you get what I mean.
Sleeping Beauty has always been my favorite Disney Princess. Both my sisters liked Cinderella but I had reasons for making Princess Aurora my fave (: First, she had an actual mom! None of the other princesses of her time could say that. Also, pink roses are another favorite and she was Briar Rose with the fairies. My sister gave me a music box years ago as that pic made an appearance in the “Creative Collections” post. I even dressed up as S.B for Halloween at work one year and surprised my niece on her birthday with wig on my head and tiara in place! In second grade, it was my go to book on the shelf for silent reading time and years later, I found it again at one of my preschool jobs. If things come back, it’s meant to be- right? I guess that applies to Warrior as well…
Thanks guys for staying with me as that was a little bit “girlie.” It is all me though!! I found this info out too. Stephanie McMahon must also love Sleeping Beauty since she and Triple H’s oldest daughter is named Aurora Rose. She’s the same age as my girl! How about that?
So, warriors what childhood items or favorites have brought the kid out in you? I still love comic books and remember reading so many of my parents when I was younger. There was Archie, Looney Tunes, Little Lulu, Fantastic Four, and many others I can recall. Archie was the best for me. So glad Warrior was able to put his ultimate mark on the comic book industry with his own stories. I mentioned comic books also with the collections post. We do have those things that stay with us forever as favorites whether in childhood or adulthood.
I bet you even watch your favorite movies over again or classic reruns of old T.V. shows. I sure do. It does bring out that kid in us with liking our stuff the way we like it and our reaction is always the same. We laugh, we cry, we still respond as if we’re seeing it for the first time. That’s how kids are. Nothing ever seems to get old or boring to them because it’s theirs. It’s comfortable and makes them feel secure and us adults do that too.
We may think those attitudes should be left in childhood but nah, they stay with us. You can probably answer that more personally for yourself . I for one NEVER get bored with my Ultimate Collection DVD as I truly thought it might be tiring a few years back. I decided to never question my kids again with watching the same episodes of certain shows while laughing in hysterics! 🤣 I do the same thing. Kids, adults, it really doesn’t matter sometimes. Sure, it may not be a big deal to others who don’t understand but we need to have fun with this life of ours.
Don’t get me started with music and all my songs. Quite another topic that ignites kid memories, teen ones, and now adult experiences. Check out my book Spirit and Belief for more on that! We may start with something so innocently as a child but then it truly does stay forever etched in our hearts.
“Once Upon a Dream” will be with me as this Sleeping Beauty is now fully awakened!! Happily Ever After is what we make it to be. Get out your movies, comic books, or anything that matters to you and be that kid again. It’s o.k. even as a grown-up…
