Talk about a case of life. HA!

I haven't been to the parks since May and I miss everything and everyone and all the Disney Happiness contained therein. The rough part is finding that same feeling throughout my life outside the walls so to speak. Disney provided that perfect suspension of disbelief, enough to make me forget the problems of the day. Sadly, I couldn't see that all the wonderful trips and sweet days were having a huge impact on my wallet. >< Gah... how I wish for a disposable income.

While I had to take a hard look at this, I did come to the realization that I could find that same feeling through life, experiences and family and friends who make me smile. I really did feel as though depression had sunk in and Disneyland was the only out.

Since then I have found my happy thought and I am now able to smile through the day, through the weeks and the months and enjoy every moment for it's beauty.

Feels good to come back MiceChat and enjoy the posts and the updates from parks and people around the world. While I miss Disneyland, I have so much to look forward to! Like my trip to Japan in 2010! And yes, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea will be a large part of our trip (as well as the Ninja Restaurant and Baby the Stars Shine Bright). I get to work at the Northern California Renaissance Faire with some awesome friends (if you're in the area, check it out!). I get to bake and create chocolate confections at my leisure, though my family and friends are saying I'm making them fat.

I've found my happy thought, and while that sounds corny it's completely accurate.
