Lessons Learned from Tinkerbell

True fact: Sometimes you just need a good girls’ night. I had a much needed girls' night yesterday with one of my best friends. We ordered pizza, talked about boys, and watched Tinkerbell. (Another true fact: I love pizza. And I might have eaten a lot of it yesterday.) LOVED this movie! It’s clean, great animation, great music and an awesome message = that equals my kind of movie! Definitely worth watching.

Sometimes I think I’m like Tinkerbell...let me explain. Tink is a tinker – she fixes things. But she didn’t feel like that was important in comparison to the other fairies that got to go to the main land when seasons changed. So she got some other fairies to teach her their talent, but it didn’t work. She spent so much time looking at others gifts but she was neglecting her unique and important talent, and what she really loved deep down.

But she finally realized her talent for fixing things. When she was using her talent to help others, she was happy. She was just being herself.

I think it’s very easy for anyone to be like Tinkerbell was, but we don’t have to be just like so and so. I am unique. You are unique. We each have something so important to offer. And I know God will help us as we find our gifts and He’ll help us know how to use them.

If you don’t want to watch the whole movie, here’s a clip from it that I love. It’s at the climax of the movie where Tink is trying so hard to prove herself to the other fairies, but then she discovers…well, you’ll just have to watch…

“Your talent makes you who you are. You should be proud of it.”-Tinkerbell

Thanks, Tink. I needed the reminder.

  1. Uh, Nicole...remember when Tinkerbell tried to kill Wendy? Hmmm...I don't know if she's a good role model for you.
