I have been an Ariel fan since I can remember! So when I saw The Little Mermaid was going to the Straz Center in Tampa, the 5-year-old in me was super excited!
Disclaimer: Thanks to my relationship with Tampa Bay Bloggers and the Straz Center, I was able to enjoy the Little Mermaid on opening night in exchange for a review and social media love. All opinions are my own.
The Little Mermaid has always been a favorite story of mine and I have shared this love with my 5-year-old.
Dream Big. Ariel was a mermaid. She was told all of her life to stay away from the shore. She was told that it was dangerous. She was told that bad things could happen if she goes to the surface. She knew there was something greater and bigger for her life than just the status quo as a mermaid. She went for it! What dreams have you been told are too dangerous or scary? Go after them!
Actions Speak Louder Than Words. Ariel had to trade her voice to gain her legs. She had to be creative in her communication with Prince Eric. She couldn’t speak to tell him how she felt, she had to show him with her actions. If you were unable to speak, how would you communicate love with those around you?
