Another round in the search for new panelist for the Disney Parks Moms Panel has drawn to a close, and for many, it’s a bittersweet time. While it can be difficult to experience disappointment in not advancing, I have found it to be virtually impossible to be upset, because of so many reasons:
- Thankfulness – for making it to Round 2 for a third time.
- Gratitude – for making even more friends and colleagues along the way.
- Excitement – for those buckling up and heading down the windy road to the next stop on this wild ride!
Each year, my reaction has been different, and to be perfectly honest, it is that calm right now that reminds me why I do this in the first place: to connect. I earnestly believe that my time will come, and right now, this is exactly where I need to be: amongst my friends, peers, fellow Disney fans, runners and chEARleaders.
And who could deny how much fun we’ve had this year? From Gary’s fun updates on twitter, to the new groups on Facebook, sharing and learning has definitely taught me a lot about myself.
And just for fun, I thought I’d share my Round 2 application video…it’s my favorite that I’ve done so far, so I hope you enjoy! I look forward to starting the fun all over next fall…and until then, you better believe that this page will have even more fun in store!
