Cinderella’s Castle–Excuse Me. “Mug.”

Happy “Mug Shot Monday!” I love the idea of starting off the week with a good cup of coffee in a happy little mug.

I love this Cinderella castle mug–I got it for only ten dollars on the Disney Store website! It’s gorgeous and reminds me of Cinderella’s greatest attributes–optimism, kindness, and courage. What a wonderful way to start the day. Who doesn’t love a good dose of Cinderella’s dreams coming true? The castle is a symbol of her dreams becoming a reality, so this mug is a wonderful tool perfect for visualizing your own dreams coming true.

Visualizing is key, my friends. Picture what you want, work for what you want, and then bask in your success. And if that success doesn’t come, know that it is ok. “A dream is a wish your heart makes,” and your heart can never run out of dreams.

Have a magical monday, everyone!


Believe and Soar

Who doesn’t love Dumbo, the little elephant with the biggest heart and ears you ever did see?

It’s impossible not to love the little guy and his story–ridiculed from the start because of his ginormous ears, Dumbo finds success and happiness when he discovers his hidden talent to fly, to soar. He just needs a little encouragement from Timothy the mouse, and then he’s up, up, up and away, soaring above all the naysayers and meanie heads. Dumbo finally learns to believe in himself, and the rewards are endless.
I needed some encouragement from Dumbo today, so I chose this adorable mug:

 Dumbo inspires me to let go of my doubt and embrace the things that make me feel insecure. He believed he could fly, so he finally did. It’s about time I take each day head on and believe in my abilities–in time, belief opens doors to opportunities you never thought possible.

So, as the sign above the Dumbo ride at Disney World says, “Believe and soar!” Work for what you want and know that you can do it. If it doesn’t turn out the way you plan, always know it’s never to late to pick yourself up and start from scratch.

“The very things that held you down are going to carry you up, and up, and up!” {Dumbo}
