the way forward


I heard this quote that said “If Your life is a play and you are the main character, why are you playing understudy?” and it struck me.  Isn’t that true of some of us sometimes?! I think its time to get up and dream. and not wait passively on the sidelines. its time to get in the game and to walk forward confidently in the direction of the Voice calling you forward!

Walt Disney World 2013



Guess what?! I’m going to Disney World in Orlando, FL for a conference this year but i plan on maxing out every day i get to be there and exhausting myself with going to every park i didn’t get to 2 years ago.

this time I’m going to Universal, Hollywood studios, Animal kingdom, possibly Typhoon lagoon and magic kingdom again. I have a list, I have my outfits. I just need to register and get the park tickets.
