The intention for this week sprouted from something rather embarrassing: I discovered Girl Meets World on Netflix and have been binging it.
If you were a child on the 90s like myself, odds are you loved Boy Meets World. I loved watching Cory, Shawn, and Topanga and all of their friends grow up. As a kid, I did my best not to miss a single episode when it aired on TGIF on ABC. It brought me a lot of comfort when networks started to air old episodes in syndication. And in 2014, when they announced Girl Meets World coming to Disney Channel, I was very excited. So a few days ago, when I saw the series was on Netflix, I immediately hit play.
Yes, the show is corny, fairly unrealistic, and quirky, but I can't help it! I'm hooked. I love seeing some of my old favorite childhood characters back on television. Plus, they do a fantastic job of poking fun at the original show, like obscure it was for Cory, Shawn, and Topanga to have Mr. Feeny as their teacher every year.
But what this show has done for me this week was inspirational. I enjoyed time traveling back to my childhood and watching my some favorite characters again. This show is simple, easy, and light ,just like childhood. There are many times in life where I crave those qualities, praying they would find their way back into my life. Unfortunately, as an adult, like can't always be simple, easy, and light; but there are time when it can be. So my intention of "embracing my inner child", means finding those moments, capturing them, and enjoying what they have to offer, because they will leave all too quickly.
"Your inner child gets it all, believes it all, hopes for it all, and is the only guardian worthy of your heart. That child knows that life - which runs on love and feasts on creativity - is on your side and that the Universe conspires with you, not against you, to help you spread that wild, crazy, messy love thought your own story."
To accompany this intention, I have a playlist inspired by my childhood; all Disney songs! Enjoy! Playlist below.
