When I was in France, I refused (consciously) to spend a day in Disneyland Paris, because I was desperately hoping to visit the “original” Disneyland in California someday … and to feel the “real” magic in “The Happiest Place on Earth”!


As a child I used to watch the Disney movies each time I had the chance to. Actually, it used to be my favourite kind of reality and as somebody, born in a communist state, dreaming about visiting Disneyland was kind of bold but unrealistic activity. As a child I used to dream. I used to ask my parents about how the future will turn out for us.

I used to ask, if I will ever visit Disneyland in my life… For the 80’s and 90’s kids from Eastern Europe, the Disney movies and characters were something more than just some fairy tales and magical stories. For me the Disney World was a symbol of freedom and hope… A hope that the future will bring us a world full of colour and joy. And as I used to ask again and again, if I will ever visit Disneyland in my life, my father told me – “Yes, if you’re working hard enough” …

On Friday, 24th of June and 24 years later, I was standing at the entrance of Disneyland California and I knew – I had been working hard enough. And this was one of those exceptional moments when I felt proud of myself and thankful, that my parents never set some boarders to my dreams. So happy, that I never heard “No”, “Be Realistic”, “Probably not” …

And of course I’m not having only Disneyland in my mind… Dreams are something magical. Dreams motivate. Dreams encourage. Dreams make us better people. Dreams are good for our health and spirit. Please encourage your children and yourself to dream! It costs nothing and it takes us one step further …















Enjoy your day and let your dreams come true!

    Благодаря ти, че сподели тази магия с нас!
    Аз вярвам не само в силата на мечтите, но и в силата на мислите! Много неща са ми се случвали, защото само съм си ги помисляла и всяко действие оттук насетне ме е водила в посока реализирането на тези мисли, без да го осъзная. Затова вярвам, че дори само твоят въпрос и твоята мисъл, че някога ще посетиш Дисниленд в Калифорния, са те завели там :)))) Прекрасни снимки, а ти изглеждаш СТРА-ХОТ-НО! <3

      Здравей Мери! Много ти благодаря за изключително милия отзив <3 Много от хората биха класифицирали "мечтата" и изобщо идеята на Дисниленд като повърхностнa... Но както вече отбеляза - друга ми беше идеята на публикацията, а именно колко е важна силата на позитивните мисли и налудничавите и не толкова "важни" мечти *но коя мечта е важна и коя не ..?!)
      Всеки един от нас трябва да реши за себе си как да си начертае картата с мечтите, защото съм убедена, че дори реализирането на една такава "повърхностнa и не толкова важна" мечта е зависеща по един или друг начин от преследването на по-дълбоки и по-трудно изпълними лични цели. И... мога да си пофилософствам още много по тази тема и със сигурност ще продължавам да го правя, но друг път! Благодаря ти и се радвам, че споделяш мислите си с мен и с останалите позитвно мислещи! PS: Ще направя още една публикация, защото изборът на снимки, измежду хилядите които направих, изобщо не беше лесен 😉 Хубав ден и до скоро!
