By now it’s no secret anymore that I truly love the movie “Rise Of The Guardians”. I’ve mentioned it plenty of times. Up until now I always talked about one specific message in this movie. The message about believing in the magic that’s still out there.
There is another fantastic message in this movie, though. One that I’ve never really mentioned before. A message that stood out when I watched it again only recently.
It’s a message about fear.
This blast from my blogging past is clearly triggered by Dream Big, Dream Often’s post, which I highlighted in this weekend’s Picks Of The Week as well. I think it’s crucial that we don’t stop believing in the impossible. That we don’t let our fantasy fade, just because we are told or taught that certain things just don’t exist or are simply not possible. I admire children because they still see the world with this innocence, with this wonder we have somehow lost on our way to so called wisdom. I wonder who the wiser one is…
I still believe. I believe in the unthinkable, I believe in the impossible and I believe in the magic that is out there. And I would love to invite you all to do the same. The world will be a much better place if we all start seeing it the way children do…
Jack Frost, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Mr Sandman and the Tooth Fairy. They all have something in common. And it is not just the movie “Rise Of The Guardians”! Kids believe in them!
Do you remember, when you were lying on your back, looking up to the sky and imagining pictures in the clouds; dreaming of magical creatures, seeing all sort of different things in the shapes the clouds formed?
We grow up believing in the magical world of fairies, magical creatures like unicorns, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and so on. They bring some unexplainable thrill into our life and sometimes they are used by adults to make kids behave. But they all make us wonder and dream and hope and look forward to something.
