Lessons from good vs. bad experiences
In life we make lots of decisions. In my last post I focused on bad decisions from the movie Frozen that lead to hurt and pain and how we can learn from them. Today I want to look at the good things that were done to overcome some of the loneliness and hurt felt at the beginning and through the development of the story, to eventually lead to a happy ending.
Service and love are essential
When Elsa first runs off (and even before) you can see the love that Anna has for her. What solidifies that love (to the point where she would sacrifice herself for her sister) is walking through the bitter cold to try and bring her back. The love is so ingrained through her sacrifice and service she has given that she doesn’t even think twice about how much she loves her sister and what she would do for her. If you are ever feeling at odds with someone, find a way to serve them. Service leads to love and a desire to see that person succeed and overcome their trials.
Happiness through friends and family
To overcome fully the effects of fear, Elsa needed happiness. She was unable to find this in here fortress of solitude she built. She needed friends and family around to support her and help bring happiness. Even before the final scenes of celebration Elsa is again happy. Once happy she is able to help her friends achieve greater happiness. Because of her powers (which she had believed were a curse) she was now able to help keep Olaf alive, even in the heat of the summer, so he could revel in all things summer.
In the end, Elsa is able to deliver on what the people wanted. Summer has returned and the people no longer fear her. Once her true feelings are made known they are all able to enjoy the gift she was given. They skate on ice and party, even in the middle of summer. Everyone celebrates her gift and the joy that it can bring to the world. They trust her and know that she cares for them, and that is what really matters.
