You'll know if you found your true path if you cried during this song

Show Yourself- The Theme of Everyone's Life

Every mom, aunt, babysitter, and almost every Disney fan has already watched Frozen 2 by now, or at least hopefully so! The movie is a sequel to the original Frozen, continuing on with Elsa and Anna's journey into adulthood in the fictional country of Arendalle. In my eyes, the sequel was modernly beautiful, and a secondary stepping stone to the new generation of movies truly focusing on individualistic main characters. But there's one scene that has me in tears, never failing every time- Show Yourself.

Elsa forcibly removes Anna from the journey she needs to venture on alone, leaving Anna a tad bit upset and also giving Olaf a new emotion- anger. However, Anna doesn't realize that no matter how much she wants to be there to protect her sister, sometimes she needs to let go. As Elsa is on her path to Ahtohallan, she realizes the glacier in front of her is her destination, the long awaited answer that holds the bone-chilling singing siren she is desperately after. However, it isn't the actual person who is singing that she is after, it's the realization that she is finding answers about her life that she has been in search of for years.

The song called show yourself starts with a heart settling piano keystrokes, which trigger emotions of many. She says that she is nervous, that she recognizes something the closer she gets, and after throwing ice around while sprinting through the inner workings of the glacier, she comes to the understanding that she is the fifth spirit. She is the "bridge" between magic of nature and magic in humans. Elsa has found her path, and gives those watching that have done the same a very strong oncoming of emotions while following her.

Some internet users have related Show Yourself as a LBGT song, saying that this song could be a representation of "coming out". Another relation could be a deployment homeward bound, as this would be an extremely tear jerking song while manning the rails after a long and tiresome 7 month deployment, looking out at families below counting the minutes until they can hug their sailor. To me, this song impacted me because over the course of my mistakes in my life, I have found my path. From the very beginning of this song, to the last note, I was reminded of everything I have done that has led me to where I am now, living my own dream. I have constantly searched for my own path in this world, and after finding it through many years of trial and error, this song had- and still has me in tears. There are countless people in this world who are trying to find their path, and those who haven't gotten the opportunity yet will not relate to this song the same way those that have will, and that's perfectly okay. Finding our own individual paths is not intended to be an easy adventure, it's supposed to be filled with mistakes. For Elsa, it could have been staying in Arendelle instead of following her inner voice. For others, it could be settling for fears instead of following their own dreams! Most of the time, our "mistakes" will just be an extra reason why we become convinced to follow our dreams. Most mistakes that we make as humans aren't truly mistakes, they lead us to our "path" even if it seems like the worst decision we can make in our lives. As Elsa's whole life led her to this moment, so do ours in real life. Some moments for others consist of walking across the stage, becoming doctors at age 45 after unfulfilling careers that led them back to their original dreams. Some others "show themselves" when they become a speech pathologist and lead their four year old patient from being non-verbal to telling their parents that they love them, and getting to watch the parents hear their child's voice for the first time. For me, mine was leaving the military to become a writer. I found my path in using my life experiences to give others a voice, and watching/listening to Elsa find her own path was a very emotional experience for me, even if she is animated. She is filled with emotions, tears of joy, and a fulfilled heart that every person should- and will, have one day in their lives.

If you follow your dreams, you will show yourself who you are and you will become the person you were born to be. It will be the one day in your life that you will never forget, because you become you. Your name isn't just a title for yourself, it will become a front and back cover of your life. Your name will no longer consist of just letters. You will have a prompt for your life the moment you become who you are, leading to a life that will be motivational for everyone in your life, regardless of whether you realize it or not.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
