What makes Disney’s “Moana” the most inspirational movie yet?
On November 23, 2016 Disney finally released the movie “Moana.” I expected greatness and they surpassed my expectations by far! Moana is a true Millennial and speaks for the strong and the independent.
She has always been called to the ocean for as long as she could remember. She didn’t know why but she knew there was a reason. Once she followed her calling she was taken on the most amazing adventure. With her dad and life going against her sometimes.
We can all relate to that. For example, I never knew why I always chose music but I knew it was a calling. So, I’m following it. Why stop when things get hard? We’ve journeyed so far.
She was always asked:
“Do you know who you are”
She knew who she obviously was, a girl that loved her people and a person that loved the ocean. But it was about finding what was inside of her. Following her calling wasn’t just about the great adventure but finding how far you can really go. That would show you to who you truly are. After a couple hiccups in the journey and getting back up, again. It came to her…
“The call isn’t out there at all, it’s inside me.”-Moana
What calls to you isn’t a call, it is a part of you. You won’t know how far you can really go unless you go on this journey with yourself and the people that make you better. You grow and you can pave the way for people to follow in your footsteps. The ups and the down are like the tide in the ocean, it falls and it rises. But, it makes such a beautiful sight.
Time to make it happen.
P.S. You may see an old friend from Frozen, Sven, in the movie. Keep your eyes out!
