I can’t believe that today marks the last day of this challenge. 26 Weeks ago I started a challenge before leaving for Disney World and I can’t believe 26 weeks later, half the year gone here we are. I know I’ve been doing characters this entire challenge but since the second week of this challenge I knew who I wanted to use for the last week. As they say, save the best for last. While Walt Disney may not be classified as a “Character” I’ll argue that he is only the biggest most important character. He’s the creator, the genius behind everything that I love today and so for our final week of The SL DisneyBound Blogger Challenge it is my greatest pleasure to introduce to you, Walt Disney.
I’m going to apologize for this entry because it’s going to be long. When I was a kid and pretty much for as long as I can remember, Disney was a household name in my house. It was something I grew up with, loved for as long as I can remember. My parents love Disney, my grandparents, it’s something that just runs in my family. Vacations? To the beach, a cruise, nah let’s go to Disney World! I cannot simply imagine my life with out Disney being an every day part of it. I can honestly say there is no place where I am happier, more carefree and have some of the greatest memories of my life. I grew up in Disney World, my fiancé proposed to me in front of Cinderella’s Castle! My greatest memories will always revolve around it, it truly is a magical place.
Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.– Walt Disney
Nothing will ever be completed in life, the world evolves, it grows, it moves on and spins. The imagination is the greatest gift that we receive in life and it’s up to us to use it. I can sit here all day and tell you literally how much Walt Disney means to me. For me he is my hero, my mentor, he’s someone that I look up to. For a man that struggle in his youth and even as an adult and to come up on top today. Even years after his death he still continues to leave an impression. He still carries a legacy, a beautiful legacy that will be loved by children and adults alike for as long as there is imagination left in the world. The thing I learned from Walt, if you have a dream to NEVER give up on it. It IS achievable and you may try a few times, fail but continue trying because eventually it’s going to work. All the trying that you did, it’s going to show and you will have something to show for it.
I just want to end this by saying, thank you Walt. Thank you for giving me one of the greatest childhoods I could have ever asked for. For allowing me to feel emotions through your animation and stories from happiness to sadness. For growing up knowing that one day I could become something if I dreamed it, if I tried hard enough and never gave up. My only regret in life is that I will never get to meet you myself in this life but hopefully in another. Thank you for the legacy and for telling us to never stop dreaming. And like every good Disney moment always ends in song…
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.
