Things We Can Learn From The Minions

Recently I watched Despicable Me and, like many people, I became an instant fan of the small, yellow, and extremely cute, minions. With their boundless energy and never ending love, it's no surprise that so many of us have fallen so hard for these cute as Hell creatures. There are so many things we can learn from them and use in every day life.

Unconditional Love

It doesn't matter that their boss is a villain, the minions love him with all their little hearts. They cheer whenever he appears, do whatever he asks, and queue up for goodnight kisses. Their love knows no boundaries, extending beyond Gru and to whoever else crosses their paths.

Do Your Best

It doesn't matter if they're working for the world's worst villain or trying to find a toy for a sad little girl, the minions go above and beyond the call of duty to do what they need to.

Unending Happiness

The simplest things make the minions happy, from music to bananas to going to the store. Words we consider childish send them into fits of laughter.

Stay Healthy!

Their love of fruit borders on the almost obsessive, to the point where they have a song about bananas.

They Wear Their Hearts On Their Sleeves

Their emotions are completely on display, whether they're happy, sad, or angry, they let everyone know what's going on. And they tell the other minions if they're angry with them, normally with a punch to the arm!
