Affirmation: Life really is about having dreams and making those dreams come true. I dream it. I believe it. I do it.
The affirmation to follow our joy led Bea and I to a place commonly referred to as The Happiest Place on Earth ~ Disneyland.
My Nanny first took me to Disney when I was 8. I was so excited I thought I’d burst. I remember seeing the animal shaped bushes around the park for the first time and thinking, “This place is amazing! How come we don’t have bushes like that?” That same excitement I had when I was 8 hasn’t worn off either, I can’t tell you how happy and inspired I am every time I visit.
Not only is Disney one of our favorite places to visit, we both hold it very close to our hearts for a couple reasons.
- We met there, and we have been friends ever since.
- It’s a place where dreams are made and come to life. It’s Disney that taught us that you can make your dreams come true, and what you need to do to make them happen.
We haven’t lived in the same place since we met 20 years ago, but we’ve still maintained our friendship and make a point to see each other quite often. I’ve seen Bea’s dreams continue to come true since then, and she’s seen mine.
Before we met, we were going to school in Canada in different provinces. I was in Manitoba, Bea was in Ontario. We both have similar stories. We decided at a very young age that we wanted to work for Disney. When we told people, more often than not, we were told it was a pipe dream because we were Canadian. “How are you going do that? You’re from Canada,” they would say. Neither of us knew. We just knew we’d do it. And low and behold, EPCOT was built, and in 1992, during the 20th anniversary of Disney World in Florida, we were both hired to work in the Canadian pavilion on the International College Program.
That’s the thing about dreams. People whether they are aware of it or not have a tendency to question yours. They do that because they don’t know or understand how it’s going to happen, and sometimes we take it to heart and become doubtful. The thing to remember is what they believe doesn’t matter. It’s what you believe that matters.
You don’t need to know how your dream is going to come true. You just need to know that is, and believe in yourself enough that it will happen. That’s it. If you stay true to your dreams, the universe has a funny way of putting things in place to help make them come true. Your belief is your tool. It’s the hammer that’s going to drive the nail into the board, so keep dreaming keep believing.
Your dreams are worth living for. Dream it. Believe it. Do it. What’s your most impossible dream? Make the magic happen.
