We all know that many Disney movies are full of inspirational messages don’t we? That’s what makes them such a huge success. If we’re feeling down, we put on our favourite Disney movie to help lift us up. It’s an amazing thing. It’s a gift that Disney are blessed with.
My newly discovered outlook on life made me realise just how much general negativity I was harbouring in my mind. Yes, I’d watch a Disney movie and it would make me all happy, then I’d go right back to moaning about why it’s been raining so much or how my job keeps messing up my pay each month.
These niggling negative thoughts were bringing my vibe down. I needed to maintain a steady flow, as fluctuating from positive and negative was making me emotional and angry. My aim for this year was to become a more positive person and so far it’s working a treat. I’m loving life right now so I decided to share my positivity to brighten up the lives of strangers.
I created ‘Positive Disnotes’. I wrote out 10 inspirational Disney quotes onto 10 Post-it notes and left them to be found in 10 public places during 1 week. On the back of each one I wrote ‘spreading a little Disney magic’. It became a little game; I had to use my imagination and do it without getting caught and looking like a crazy person.
I left them on the back of bus seats, train seats, inside a restaurant menu, in public toilets, in changing rooms and inside a gym locker. I did it all in the hope it would make people smile and lift their spirits. I may not be able to make the whole world happy but I can at least make the tiniest portion of it happy, myself included.
I have lots more Post-it notes left so I shall definitely be doing it again. You can join me in spreading a little Disney magic yourself… anywhere you like. Don’t forget to take photos and with the hashtag positivedisnotes post it to twitter.
