Destination Disney: Walt Disney's Quote

The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique. ~Walt Disney

What a fabulous quote!  There are so many reasons I admire Mr. Disney and this quote makes me like him even more.  I wish I believed this quote, oh maybe 25 years ago!  At 38 years old, that would have made me 13.  What a horrible age.  Junior High, awkward, hormonal, in between, puberty, yuck.   I did not like myself, was always trying to be someone else and trying to fit in.  Maybe if I had just tried to like myself more, I would have realized how unique God made me.  The older I get, the more I truly believe in this quote.  Even though there are things I would like to change about myself, I do like love myself and am glad I am not like anyone else.  I hope and pray that I can pass this on to my boys.  

Walt Disney was an amazing man and we all need to slow down a bit and read, reread and reread this quote.  Maybe if more people did like themselves and saw themselves the way God does we wouldn't have so many problems in our society.  Better yet, maybe we all need to stop what we are doing and head to Walt Disney World where we can escape so many of the pressures and stress of this life and learn to like ourselves again!

  3. Amen, Beth! Love this picture of you, being you. :)

    I think it's probably easier to teach this truth to boys (at least, I hope so!)
