Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving and it’ll be a different one than usual due to a hiccup in my current trauma recovery, but I am slowly learning what true love is.
In the movie, Frozen, Else has a special gift of being able to create ice and snow. Unfortunately, while playing with her little sister, Anna, she accidentally hurt her with her special power. From that day on, she was told to not show her power to anyone and it was treated like a curse. She was separated from her sister and her little sister didn’t understand why due to the memory being erased.
Fear triggers Elise to create ice in a dangerous way. But after she finally becomes free, she learns to use it for beauty and in the end, a single act of true love is the only thing that will undo Anna being frozen.
We want our children and the world to become kinder and more loving. I believe that the only way to do this is to practice true love. And to let the children be who they are as long as they are not hurting anyone.
Love and kindness cultivate a grateful heart whereas harshness and hate create anger and bitterness. This Thanksgiving, and year round, let’s do our best to create love, kindness, and gratitude!
