Whole Living: Walt’s Wisdom

“Disneyland is a work of love. We didn’t go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money.”
Walt Disney

December has many wonderful birthdays in it, including the famous Walt Disney who was born on December 5th.  While Disney is no longer with us, he has left us an incredible legacy.  Disney knew something special about life-as important as money is, there has to be love!

Without love, the difficulties of life wouldn’t be bearable.  There’s no amount of money that would make a bed warm at night or make a holiday gathering special.  No matter how much money you have, it wouldn’t be the same without people to be around and love.

As we close out this month of thinking about kindness and thanksgiving, and look forward to talking about love in December, I am reminded that these are the best days of life- days when love and compassion are so evident.

I am thankful that people take advantage of opportunities to bestow blessings upon their fellow man during this season, but wish that we would remember to do so all year long.  Disney’s dreams of animation, Disneyland and Disney World didn’t end when he died, other people have carried it on long after.

What’s stopping us from carrying on love and kindness through the year?

Just like Disney is a work of love, let’s work this year to be more loving, kind and thankful all year long.
