Hakunu Matata

If any of you have a toddler then you know just how much you can watch the same movie over and over and over, AGAIN! Well, we have gone through this with quite a few movies, but one of the movies I never get tired of is The Lion King. I absolutely loved it as a kid, I loved it as I got older, and I love it as a mother.

One of my favorite scenes in the whole movie is when they sing Hakuna Matata... "Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase! Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze! It means no worries for the rest of your days. It's our problem free philosophy, Hakuna Matata." Actually... that is all it says in my Twitter description of myself. (which couldn't be further from the truth, but one can hope) If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that I stress out like it's my job and that I am constantly working on relaxing. It is always such a wonderful reminder whenever I watch this movie. And you couldn't ask for a better mantra to repeat in your head when you're feeling stressed or anxious. Also, how funny is it when Simba says, "Hakuna Matata?" And Pumba says, "yeah, it's our motto?" And then Simba says, "what's a motto?" And Timon pipes in with the kicker and says "Nothing, what's a motto with you?" hahahaha,  gets me every time!

Just remember... Hakuna Matata!!!



  1. love that saying, it's a great one to remember :)
