Theme Park Therapy: The War Against Rejection

Rejection PicToday I wanted to bless you all with a bit of Theme Park Therapy for the soul. The concept of rejection can be suffocating and debilitating to most people.

The fear of rejection is ever so paralyzing too!

It prevents dreams from coming to fruition and world changing stories to be left untold. Technological advances are also destroyed before evening being built.

I go through rejection along with everyone in this world. It’s something inevitable throughout our journey. The key to not becoming the lifeless drone or faceless person in the gravest is to use the entity of rejection and roll it into a brand new OPPORTUNITY for your life.

Theme Park Therapy: Spring into Life!

Epcot in the SpringLooking for the positive in anything can be difficult, especially if that anything is something ghastly consuming to your life. We all have our days where the glass half full seems to be a bit emptier than ever. All I can say to you is that your Spring is here and your Summer is awaiting you.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Disney Nostalgia

1997 Magic Kingdom Park Map

The other evening I was going through my past receipts and paperwork preparing to file my taxes. It’s something we 20 and 30-somethings like to refer to as adulting.

It’s a term first coined on twitter which means doing the monotonous things that a responsible adult is supposed to do such as, paying bills, filing taxes, showing up for work, and many of the ridiculousness that comes with being an adult.

Basically it’s the opposite of everything you truly want to do, such as geeking out with friends of the same fandom (for me it’s Harry Potter), playing video games, drinking around Epcot’s World Showcase, or anything you may feel takes you away from the mundane requirements of adulthood.

Back to the original story…

It was a day of many adulting activities when I ran across a box full of park maps I used to collect and the main one that stood out was a Magic Kingdom guidemap from November 24th to 30th, 1997. It stopped me because it was my 14th birthday weekend during that year and going to Walt Disney World during any of my childhood was always like an early Christmas gift.

Theme Park Therapy: Walt Disney on Courage

Walt Disney Quote from Buzzfeed.com

This quote is what I’ve been reciting every other day for the past couple of weeks. I hate to go all “Chicken Soup for the Soul” on you, but every day is a new opportunity to face my fears and take risks that a year ago I would have never thought about doing.
