I did not grow up playing with toy princesses. I did have rag dolls and Barbie, but not Disney Princesses. If anyone asked me before who’s my favorite Disney Princess? I have none.

Not until I have seen the Disney movie, BRAVE.

BRAVE (IMDb): Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.

BRAVE instantly made it to my list of favorite Disney/Pixar movies!

After I watched the movie, I know that Merida’s going to be my one and only favorite Disney Princess. 🏹

I fell in love with her character that I even purchased the movie in Blue-Ray in iTunes and watched it so many times, downloaded and played (and got addicted) to the Temple Run-Brave, and just today, I was surprised to see Merida dolls and miniature figurine toys at the mall, so I got myself the Brave set (picture below) that comes with a mini Merida, a mini-bow and arrow, a mini plate with cupcakes, 2 mini wisps, and one of her brothers transformed into a little bear.

But why Merida of all the Disney Princesses?

1. Merida is single. Haha! What I mean is, of all the Disney Princesses, Merida is the only (as far as I know) Princess that does not have a prince. One of the things I learned from BRAVE is that you don’t have to settle for someone just because people around you want it for you.

“ free to write our own stories, follow our own heart, and find love in our own time” -Queen Elinor’s message delivered by Merida 😉

2. Merida is a skilled archery. I like that sport! I have tried archery twice (and wanting to again) and luckily target bull’s eye on my second session. I have wanted to enroll myself in Archery classes but it’s too expensive, so maybe I’ll just save up money for now. 😜

That’s just it. For me, Merida🏹 just rocks! 🤟🏼💪🏼

Now, let me leave you with a quote from BRAVE.

“There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.” ~Merida🏹
