He was a dreamer, an innovator, and a true testament of what hard work and perseverance can do for anyone who believes. Walt Disney has inspired me and other great people of this world to dream BIGGER, do MORE, and LIVE uninhibitedly. It is with great honor that I give you the best Walt Disney quotes to inspire you in your life.
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 Kingdomguidemap 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.
I believe many people will say that being an adult means putting away childish things, living responsibly and maturely in society. Sometimes the focus of “adulthood” and all of the things that come with it can take the joy of life away from us. We focus on the day to day responsibilities of work, family, and the expectations of this world that we forget to pause and enjoy the life we have.
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.
Today I made an unexpected trip to Walt Disney World. I’ve been going through the unforeseeable trials of life lately and this place is truly my own refuge from the harsh realities of this world. I call it my personal Therapist. Whenever I see the “Welcome to Walt Disney World” sign that greets me at the entrance, my whole mood changes and I began to perk up.
