Merida being a sweetheart (x)
I love the way she carries on. Like some people when they’re asking a child a question and they give you an answer that doesn’t make sense, they look to the parents and laugh and don’t realise what that can do to a child’s self esteem. But she’s like ‘god yeah candle flavoured cake’ and that’s important to me. And people say ‘people who work at disney have such easy jobs’ but they’ve got this pressure on them to keep every single child they meet happy. They’ve got to stay in character and be believable, improvise and make sure they say the right thing. How many of you would be like ‘candles not a flavour’ and laugh and that child would be embarrassed as hell, maybe cry and possibly avoid the character and/or movie for years. I don’t think people realise just how much talent and skill and knowledge you have to have to work with children in general and it’s such a tragically ignored ability. And the way children’s self esteem can be effected so easily by things like this is ignored too. Like I still can’t be open about my music and love of theatre because my parents are negative and close minded and put it down saying its ‘not a real job’ and they’ve done that since I was about 4? So when I was 4 I started having low self esteem. And that’s horrible I’ve had to hide what I love since I was 4. 4s still an innocent little baby! And that’s why it’s so important for children’s imagination and interests and individuality to be encouraged for their whole lives because we are becoming a very sad, secretive, anxious society and if we don’t stop it’s only going to get worse. This seems like I’m crazy over reacting but if merida hadn’t done what she did, this child could feel so stupid and ashamed and we can’t make children feel that way cause they don’t know how to handle it and it can harm them so much. So yeah praise merida and all the people who support children for the unique, confident, over imaginative, beautiful creatures they are
1. Sleep naked. If it’s warm outside, open the windows and draw the curtains. You’ll wake up with beams of sunrise on your skin, under cool sheets.
2. Play soccer barefoot. You will feel more free and happy while you savor the moment. Everyone is more arrogant in shoes.
3. Dance to your favorite music.
4. Wear a flower in your hair—or a flower tiara.
5. Do naked yoga.
6. Dance in the rain without fear of getting your feet, hair, clothes or anything else wet.
7. Make yourself a really healthy but yummy dessert, like plain yogurt with fruit, honey and almonds.

I love the fact that my sister just turned 12 so everytime she says something stupid I just say “shut up ur like 12” and she gets pissed off and walks away
