10 lessons The Wizard of Oz taught Me

Wizard of Oz is and will always be a well-loved family classic. From singing along to the songs, to booing that ol'  green-faced B...Witch, to having fun mimicking the 'I'm melting!!' Here's what it taught me about life (so far)...

1.The grass isn't always greener on the other side. If you think your life is dull  whilst you compare it to your friends' colourful Kansas life, maybe you need to start being grateful for your blessings. You don't always know what challenges people are facing.

2. It's not where you are, it's who you're with.

3. Sometimes you need to yell at your friend, (or be yelled at) to have a reality check.

4. It's fine to be confused. And it's fine to ask someone to direct us on the grown up Yellow Brick Road.

5. Heart? Home? Brains and Courage? You're sorted.

6. When you're nearing any goals, don't go to sleep in the Land of Poppy Proscrastination.

7. But someone will save you when things get messy.

8. Dorothy dreamt of travelling Over the Rainbow. Was she actually happy once she got there? Sometimes we're granted opportunities just so we can discover for ourselves that it's not what we had built up an image of. Take this as experience and closure.

9. The big scary person everyone trembles before is actually just a pathetic, small person hiding behind a curtain of insecurity.

10. And when you've been through a rubbish time? Oh Aunty Em, there's no place like home.
