I am a Princess. Long May I Reign.

I have never been a fan of the “Princess” phase that little girls go through.  I would cringe when you asked one of them what they wanted to be when they grow up and they would reply “a Princess.”  I wanted them to see past the glitter and tulle.  I wanted them to not rely on a Prince to always save the day.  I wanted them to aspire to be more than just another beautiful face.   So,  when I saw this commercial on the Disney Channel the other day, I’ll admit… it made me tear up just a little.  It was powerful.  Maybe I’m a sucker.  Check it out for yourself.
What a great message for little girls;
 Be who you are.
It’s okay to be different.
Be brave.
It’s okay to be scared.
Be brave even when you are scared.
Be loyal.
Be kind.
Be generous.
Be kind even when others are not so generous.
Stand up yourself.
 Stand up for others.
Stand with others.

Be compassionate.
Kindness is power.
Family is the tightest bond of all.
You are beautiful.
You are strong.
Always keep your promises.
 Somehow, I feel a tinsy bit better about the small fortune I have invested in the Disney Princess franchise.  Hell, I am a Princess too!  Anybody with me?

    I’m with you, wasn’t sad that my 3 year old hasn’t quite gotten into “princess” things yet, but kudos to Disney for embracing their captive audience and doing some great promotions with self-awareness and self-esteem.
