Theme Park Therapy

Deserted tree in the midst of grief.

Finding Joy through the Pain: 10-07-2017 The Day My Mom Left

Happy Sunday!

You guys know me as ThemeParkHipster. I’ve been writing on this blog since 2012. It has always brought me great joy. Some people don’t understand why I do this. One person had the nerve to say to me,

“Are you still doing that little theme park thing?”

People I tell ya…

Anyways.

ThemeParkHipster has been my outlet. It has always been there in the good and bad moments of life. ThemeParkHipster has accompanied me through the great times with my Harry Potter friends. It has also pushed me through postpartum depression and the passing away of my mom.

I never talk about this kind of stuff on here, but you all are my theme park family.

Theme Park Therapy: Walt Disney on The Impossible

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
~ Walt Disney

Fantastic inventions.

Innovative technology.

Astonishing creations.

Theme Park Therapy: The Moment of Doubt

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, doubt is an uncertainty of belief or opinion that often interferes with decision-making.

DOUBT. It will affect each one of us in some type of way throughout our lifetime. It may come as a constant, poisonous imprisonment that trickles slowly through your mind just when you’re at your lowest. It perfects its introduction in the mist of your journey when you’re pursuing your dreams, perfecting your craft and working diligently to change the course of your life.

Orlando Strong

Orlando Strong

Hurt, sadness, and confusion are just a few words describing what so many people are feeling. Other local theme park enthusiasts and I were all looking forward to a summer of fun-filled excitement with the unveiling of new attractions; however, the harsh reality of EVIL hit our home town in such a short period of time that has left us paralyzed.

Dealing with that much death and heartache within the last 5 days is something a community should never have to go through.  Christina Grimmie, the Pulse victims, and baby Lane Graves have our hearts bleeding tears for the unexpected sorrow the friends and families are facing right now.

How do we handle this?

How do we stay strong when the pain is so cripplingly toxic?

How do we become the magical city again?

…I don’t have the answers, but I wish I did.

I wish that I was able to do something to numb the pain and bring peace and comfort to everyone affected by such tremendous loss. Loss of loved-ones, loss of innocence, loss of security, and loss of faith. The best I can do is to continue to pray for the strength of the survivors and peace for relatives left dealing with the pain.

Please know that ThemeParkHipster will continue to spread the message of love, unity, and life here in Orlando.

Let us all take a moment today to remember the people who have lost their life in the multiple tragedies.

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.
