Can you smell the delicious delights coming from the screen?

Well I know I may be pushing the imagination button a bit, but I’m really stoked about this week’s Best Thing I Ever Ate segment, featuring the Pot Roast Mac-n-Cheese and Bacon Cheeseburger Mac-n-Cheese at the Magic Kingdom!

I actually couldn’t choose between the two dishes, so I decided to talk about one of Disney’s best kept secrets. You can find these two flavorful bites in the Friar’s Nook at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

Theme Park Therapy: The War Against Rejection

Rejection PicToday I wanted to bless you all with a bit of Theme Park Therapy for the soul. The concept of rejection can be suffocating and debilitating to most people.

The fear of rejection is ever so paralyzing too!

It prevents dreams from coming to fruition and world changing stories to be left untold. Technological advances are also destroyed before evening being built.

I go through rejection along with everyone in this world. It’s something inevitable throughout our journey. The key to not becoming the lifeless drone or faceless person in the gravest is to use the entity of rejection and roll it into a brand new OPPORTUNITY for your life.
