Tonight I turn to none other that Mr. Disney himself, Walt Disney:
“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.”
Tonight I visited the mouse! I absolutely feel more energized and this feeling is like none other truthfully. (Don’t think I am childish…you would feel this way too if you were here!) I think if I could just get a weekly tasted of Disney I would be one of the happiest person’s alive. No, but seriously……if you think I am kidding you should ask my friends. MY TRUE friends!
My brother, sister, and I all went as kids to Disney and so began my love of The Mouse. No joke, being a cheerleader in a UCA environment, all our competitions were at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. I LOVED IT! So, I am pretty sure that is all where my love of The Mouse began.
Mr. Y had never been to Downtown Disney, so we went on an exploration! We saw dinosaur bones, dancing chickens, a man doing the “Macarena“, a Latin Party Central, a magic store, giant Legos, a Crab Boat, a rain forest where you can eat under a huge mushroom, shops galore, and even a planet devoted to Hollywood!!! What a treat!!!
What a beautiful reminder to set goals. A reminder that I CAN dream and I CAN explore and most of all it’s OK! AND the best part is The Mouse actually encourages it!!! I have accepted that I am naturally thirsty and curious. I am loving new environments. AND overall that is how I learn best! I am just so excited I was able to see Disney. When I am there, everything is all new. I got complemented today, I was all smiles, and I even (for a second time mind you) got compared to Mary Lou Retton!
What a precious joyous day! Mr. Y and I met so many wonderful people today and it all was well worth it. It was nice being down here and it was nice learning from him. There were a few people we wrote off at the ISSA Show; they had a burr up their bum….not our fault and we definitely didn’t let it ruin our day obviously. 🙂
When you are feeling discouraged, or you feel like you aren’t as good as what you should be please remember to love yourself and who you are. “The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.” (another Walt Disney quote!) Second, dare to dream! Dream like Walt Disney dreamt, and you can never go wrong. What an inspiration to everyone and just think, if we all loved and accepted ourselves as creatures of God and dreamt a dream and we all desired to make it possible….what an imaginative beautiful way of life it would be! That right there friends is what it is all about!
