For who could ever learn to love a Beast?
Those who know me know I love cartoons a lot. Couple that with my always present emotional side and you have me sold. I settled down to watch beauty and the Beast (1991 Disney classic) with my baby cousin and I was captured. I had watched about 15 minutes of the movie and PHCN struck smh. I then proceeded to download the movie and it was worth every Mb. Listed below are the lessons learned from the movie.
Lesson one ladies and gentlemen. In a world where everyone is looking out for just themselves, it is important not to overlook this lesson. Love is not selfish. And no sacrifice goes unrewarded.
– Be Humble
Ah, this applies to most guys out there. There is no shame in humbling yourself once in a while. Not to talk of with your lady. She is supposed to be the one you share things with. Do not let walls come up because of pride. Look at the Beast, he made the first move and we all know how that turned out.
– Do not bottle in emotions. They may expire and begin to stink
You are upset with your woman? Let her know, she didn’t put enough salt in the rice? Let her know. Keeping in emotions may lead to future and more severe fights. Take a cue from our role model Beast, he never stifled a roar and again look what that got him!
– Because at the end of the day, when it all comes down to it, who is going to rescue you from wolves that are about to tear you apart in the middle of the night?
Ladies, do not run away from the castle because he roars okay? There are wolves there and Beast may not always be around to save you and bring you back home. That also means because you had an argument doesn’t mean you should ring up your ex please. Don’t be childish. There are wolves everywhere.
– When getting her gifts, do not be cliché. Give her the keys to your library because she believes knowledge is power.
She may think the brand new Mercedes benz is too much for a gift. Know your partner, let your gift leave an indelible mark. Even the Disney princes know that. That is why Cinderella did not get a grand library like Belle did. She got shinny shoees. Know your partner. Spoil your partner.
– Spend quality time together; far away from your clock, candle and cutlery like friends:
Once in a while, disappear together. Leave your friends behind and get to know bae.
– The right music never hurt anyone.
Ah and always have your iPod stocked up with the right music. Don’t be playing Pasuma when all she wants to do is lay down and tell you all about her long day. Or be playing loyal when she says we need to talk. Feel free to email me for the right music.
– Ensure your squad is as dope as Lumiere and Cogsworth. They are the absolute beast-est (saw what i did there ?
For boys, half the time we miss out on an amazing woman because of our guys. Yes, half the time our guys are correct about them but the other half. The other half is magic! And that is what we should all have in our relationships. Magic. So clean out your squad. Let it reek of optimism and Lumiere swag. If you do not know what Lumiere swag is then you have to start reading this post all over.
– If you love someone you’ll let her go, bla bla bla
My favourite lesson, which also buttresses this quote by Richard Bach that says “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were”. SOMETIMES, NOT EVERYTIME BEFORE YOU PEOPLE SAY BUT AYOLA SAID. Sometimes space is good, I am a firm believer of the heart wants what the heart wants
– The love of a good woman makes anything possible
Examples include giving you strength to fight back just when you are about to get impaled. Don’t underestimate the power of love. I bet that is what hulk runs on low-key.
– There is no greater feeling then when she puts her face into your palm and you tuck her hair into her ear.
Do I really need to explain how amazing this feels? Combine this with the right music and may just recreate the movie.
– I love you sounds better when whispered
Hey, I love you
I hope you understand that now.
Ladies, Please Kick against Gaston.
And he’ll come. Just make sure you are not married to Gaston before he does.
