It is November and I am jonesing to go to someplace Disney. At this time of year, my preference would be Hawaii or on a cruise. My husband and I have been blessed to travel to many things Disney many times. We went to Disneyland this year for my birthday but that was months ago. Feels like time to go again. Why am I talking about this?
Well, there was a time when I wouldn’t. I kept my love for Disney travel in the closet as much as possible. I had shared a few times but inevitably those who have never been and have no idea about the experience, service and magic (yeah, their branding comes alive) that Disney consistently delivers would just look at me incredulously. “You are going where?” or “Again?”
So I learned to just not tell lest I be met with the negative vibe. I am done with that. I get that they don’t understand it and hey, they don’t have to! But I am who I am and I am no longer ashamed of it. I love Disney. Movies, parks, resorts, cruises, pretty much all of it that I have experienced. I bet the naysayers would too if they tried it with an open mind. Maybe not. It is certainly not for everyone and that is okay! Isn’t it wonderful that God made us so individual and so unique and yet so similar at the same time? We all have some basic needs but how we prefer to get those met is specific to the person. How magnificent!
If you look at your life and see some area you have squashed or hidden because of the naysayers or outright opponents, ask yourself, what if I let it out? What if I embraced it, even a little? If you can’t think of any, then congratulations! More likely, look harder and if you need someone to guide you through that process, I am here.
