The Jungle BookWhenever I think of Walt Disney’s: The Jungle Book I can’t help but start humming the famous song..

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Are Mother Nature’s recipies
That bring the bare necessities of life
Wherever I wander
Wherever I roam
I couldn’t be fonder
Of my big home
The bees are buzzin’ in the tree
To make some honey just for me

But did you know The Jungle Book is full of other helpful tidbits to see you along in life? In between it’s catchy tunes and wild monkeys there is also a story of friendship, unconditional love and life lessons.

  1. Greater love hath no one than he who lays down his life for his friend.
  2. Don’t spend your time looking around for something you want, that can’t be found.
  3. Things will look better in the morning.
  4. When you find out you can live without it and go along not thinking about it.
  5. Forget about your worries and your strife.
