We went to Disney World in Florida this summer (is it Fall already?). The trip and rides were great and the four of us- BabyT, Hubby, my Mom and I enjoyed ourselves to the hilt. But as I regaled to my sister the details of our summer adventure, I had a Eureka moment. The trip was not just fun and frolic; I actually learned quite a few lessons as we marveled and gazed and rode and braved the rides and sights.
Here’s a run-down of the most memorable:
- Having fun has nothing to do with age, or health or size. My mom andBabyT had more fun than Hubs or I. And they could not get on half the rides. No points for guessing who laughed all day in spite of the sweltering heat, a storm, long queues, and a sad lack of vegetarian food options. Attitude IS everything.
- Laughter IS infectious. And being a carrier is a marvellous thing.
- Open your senses to the wonders around you. You never know what you might find.
- Sometimes, first impressions are not the best impressions. Do not be quick to judge.
- Get out of your comfort zone. Things looks hard and terribly uncomfortable from afar, but you’ll never know if it was otherwise – unless you try.
- Strength comes in all shapes and sizes.
- Knowledge is truly power. The light of knowledge dispels the darkness of fear, rejection, failure.
- You are the company you keep!
- Mommies are the best. They are cheerleaders and doting fans and your personal therapist all rolled into one.
- Home IS sweet home. And a neat one is an even more welcoming one.
