Since last week would have been Walt Disney's birthday, and Saturday marks the anniversary of his passing, I wanted to do a special post in his memory, and explain to you all what Disney means to me, and how, without ever knowing it, Mr. Disney affected my life.
Who doesn't love Disney, right? I mean, what's not to love? The movies are timeless, the theme parks are amazing, it's a pretty awesome company! Most people like Disney. Alot of people love Disney. But Disney is so much more than a love for me. Disney is one of my passions in life. Disney, for me, goes so much deeper than loving the movies, etc. Disney is part of who I am. Disney represents all of the times in my life I have been the happiest, and Disney is my biggest source of inspiration in life.
I could try to put into words how Disney has forever changed my life, but I would never be able to capture just how much. I was always fascinated with Disney. As a child, the films were my favorites. When I grew a little older, Disney became my life. I studied Walt and the company. I became inspired by all that Walt Disney was and believed. I was inspired in every way, shape and form, and it changed my outlook on life.
I have such an emotional attachment to Disneyland, and all other aspects of Disney. The feeling of magic I experience upon entering the Disneyland Park is immeasurable. My dream is to someday, in someway, be apart of the magical company that is the Disney Company.
Walt, you have been the biggest inspiration of my life. You have taught me to have faith in my dreams, and that if I can dream it, I can most certainly do it. Thank you for the magic, and the lifelong memories. You have forever changed my life, and who I am, and for that I would never be able to thank you enough.
