I've always considered myself a glass half full kind of gal. The way I see it, you can't always control what life hands you, but you can control how you respond to it. Choosing to be happy is just that - a choice. There is certainly enough bad news in the world to bring you down if you let it, but where does that lead you?
Yesterday I was disappointed to learn that my ongoing quest to one day be a part of the Disney Parks Moms Panel ended this year at Round 1. This was an especially tough blow after having made it to Round 2 for the first time last year. The email came through at 12:48 AM so I saw it on my phone when I woke up to feed my 8 month old son at 3:30 AM. While the disappointment is certainly there, I have to say that the adventure and excitement each September is something I wouldn't miss for the world. I've often said that Disney pushes me to be the best version of myself and even though I will once again not be joining the fabulous men and women of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I have met some wonderful people along the way, continued to grow as a blogger, and am always finding new ways to share my love of Disney and the trip planning knowledge I have with those I meet.
Is it too early to start #DisneyMP2017 trending for those of us already in that waiting room?
