Growing up family has always been one of the most important things to me. And to Elena, Disney’s newest and first Latina princess, family is everything to her as well. Elena of Avalor is a television series that premiered July 22, on Disney Channel.
To help kick off the premiere my family and I had the privilege of hosting an Elena of Avalor premiere party. We had tons of fun in addition to goodies and crafts for the kids.
Well planning for the party I made sure to ask my abuela (grandmother) for help. My abuela is very important to me and has always been a huge part of my life.
When I was younger many of my days were spent traveling or creating adventures with her. I remember when I was younger I always strived to be just like her. She was such an inspiration and really pushed to find the greater good in life and people.
Grandmother’s are such an amazing blessing and my abuela truly helped form me into who I am today.
When there were tough times my abuela was always there. Sometimes, I’ll admit I was not the most patient or easy child to deal with, but she always used her kind and soft words to push me up.
“Patience is a virtue,” she’d say. “Only those who have patience and kindness can change the world. You are strong my la nieta and you have the capability to do greatness but it comes from within.”
These words. I still live by them. That’s partially how I became who I am today. When we were born we weren’t promised anything, we weren’t giving instruction booklets, we weren’t guaranteed nothing. And when it comes to being able to make it that’s when family comes in.
There have been many times in my life that if my family wasn’t there I don’t know what would have happened. But with perseverance, with patience and kindness and with a little bit of my abuela’s words, I too was able to find greatness. And each day is a new adventure, and a new battle. Each day is filled with obstacles and roller coasters that are just thrown in our way, but with family anything is possible.
And in Disney’s Elena of Avalor, Elena and her family do just that.
When it comes to Elena’s life there is difficulties, there is battles that without her family, she may not be who she is today.
In the first episode “First day of Rule” Elena officially becomes Crown Princess and she has to rescue her sister, which was just another roller coaster along the path of life.
Elena has much adventures to set out and being the new ruler of Avalor she’ll have to conquer evil witches and sorcerers to save her kingdom. But with the help of her family she can achieve greatness.
Have you found your spot in life? If so, which family members or leaders in your life have helped you achieve who you are today?
