3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge

I got nominated to do my very first “blog challenge” thingy by Disney on my Mind (Marywdw) (she writes an awesome blog, by the way), and I couldn’t be more excited! This challenge involves picking three of my favorite quotes and posting them for the next three days. I also get to nominate three other bloggers to participate in the challenge. The three bloggers I nominate are as follows:

It’s A Great Blog After All

How Savannah Smiles

Witty ‘N’ Pretty

I enjoy reading all of these blogs, so I thought it might be fun to nominate them!

Now for the hard part: picking which quotes to post. I’m SUCH a quote person (click here for an old post dedicated to the subject) so it’s hard for me to pick just three. Your favorite quotes can help define what you believe in and who you are.

It’s an important decision, as you can see.

After a lot of debate, here’s the first one:

“The very things that held you down are gonna carry you up and up and up!” {Timothy Mouse from Disney’s Dumbo}.

We all have things that hold us down–fear holds me down, anxiety holds me down, and my one-track mind holds me down. What I love about this quote is that it gives me hope that one day I’ll be able to overcome the things that hold me down and soar.

I hope everyone has a great day! “Believe and soar” today and every day.

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}
