Every Monday, I post about a positive and motivational song, so we can start off our week with the right foot.
This week, I selected Try Everything by Shakira. She has a small role in the Disney movie’s Zootopia, or Zootropolis for my viewers in the UK and Ireland. It’s a play on words, of combining Utopia and a zoo. Utopia is where the world is perfect. And for Zootropolis it is for the Metropolis, and how Zootropolis is the capital of the Metropolis. I loved that movie so much. In the movie Shakira plays Giselle, who is this famous pop star, and an amazing dancer. She intentionally or unintentionally wore the same outfit during her Super Bowl 54 concert performance.
For those who haven’t seen the movie, it is about this rabbit named Judy Hopps, and her dream to become a police officer. Although at first her parents are against her becoming a police officer, because it is too dangerous, especially for a rabbit, their family often stay and work on a carrot farm. But despite what her parents tell her, she decides to pursue a career in the police force. It may have been a bit more challenging than she thought, but no matter what, she decides to not give up.
I think we can all learn a lesson or two, from Judy Hopps. She is encouraging us to go after our dreams no one matter how scary they may be, and no matter what. And she makes it known, that she is the one who makes the decisions for herself, she doesn’t feel the need to appease others. I think these are always great traits to have. It’s good to go after your dreams.

“Sometimes we come last, but we did our best-Shakira, Try Everything
I won’t give up
No, I won’t give in till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave
I want to try everything
I want to try even though I could fail”
