✨each of us have a dream, a heart’s desire, it calls to us, and when we’re brave enough to listen, and bold enough to pursue, that dream will lead us on a journey to discover who we’re meant to be. all we have to do is look inside our hearts and unlock the magic within.” ✨
in 2016 i went back to disney for the first time in over a decade and for the first time as a mom. a crazy thing happened right after that trip - i found myself without a job that i had thrown 200% of myself into, forsaking my own sense of self and well being in the process. i just didn’t realize how boxed in i had made myself.
since that trip, i have been back to disney dozens of times and a truly magical thing has happened. i have broken free. i look back on these pictures from 2016 and realize all the things i have taught myself to do and become proficient in, but also where i have learned that life’s priorities should be. experiences over things. family over everything. work as a means to drive a fulfilling existence, but only one of the many ways i leave a legacy. .
thank you #disney, for all of the many ways you have inspired me to be brave and bold to become this person who i enjoy being so much. i hope walt had some inkling of all the lives he would inspire when we started sketching out that mouse 🐭
