positivity + disney day


I chose the name of this blog because 1) it was from Peter Pan, and 2) it had the word "positive". I was a very sad girl in high school, and only in recent years did I make a conscious decision to be more positive and optimistic. Positivity and optimism isn't always easy. It's sometimes a battle to overcome sadness and general gloominess, especially for someone who has battled depression for my whole life. But I'm growing all the time, and I'm learning to dodge sad thoughts and duck behind optimism.

I decided a long time ago that just because I'll grow older does not mean I'll ever grow up, or just because I'll grow up does not mean I'll grow old. On my walk to school, there is graffiti on the sidewalk that says "Be Positive" and reminds me. Sometimes it's a struggle to be happy, but it's worth it.


I feel like by saying I like Disney movies, people might assume I think life is simple, that romance is fated, that defeating a bad guy solves your problems. But I don't think that at all. Even Disney princesses fought for their happiness, albeit without swords (except Mulan!)

Anyway, let's do a brief little disney day!



How perfect is this gif for a post about positivity?

  1. I know exactly what you mean! I'd love to always be positive but it really can be a struggle sometimes!
