Growing up Tom & Jerry was a staple of our Saturday morning cartoon ritual. You got up at 7 A.M., fix yourself a bowl of cereal, and then settle in for cartoons. It was our time as kids to laugh, bond, and just relax before beginning our weekend chores.
Fast forward 30+ years later and our favorite fighting duo are on the big screen. They bring with them all the memories of childhood and the animated classic but with the added benefit of live-action. As children, I never looked any deeper than a fun cat and mouse chase. As an adult, I can see deeper now into what Tom & Jerry taught us all those years ago.
Inspiring Life Lessons We Learn From Tom & Jerry
Friendship Is Precious
No matter how many times Tom chases Jerry or Jerry gets the better of Tom they are friends. They may fight with each other but when one of them needs the other they stand together. They are friends and they know how precious it is to have someone you can count on. They are a team and show up together when their friends need them the most. Friendship is rare especially when you have a chronic illness so cherish the friendship of those people you call friends.
Never Give Up
This lesson was one I needed to be reminded of. No matter how many times Tom fails to catch Jerry, he never quits. He tries again with bigger and more unique ideas to catch him. Jerry is also an inspiration. He doesn’t surrender and plays smartly. Never stop trying after one or two failures. Life is a never-ending learning platform. Learn something every day and move forward towards your goal. Progress is what matters, not the amount of progress.
Cherish the little things
Happiness is all about cherishing all those little joys that life offers. We saw in the movie that things kept getting bigger and more out of control. Don’t make the mistake of letting things get too big, instead, hold on to the things that make you happy. Togetherness is the key to happiness. When we learn to appreciate little things in life, we understand that life is much bigger than we can ever imagine.
