I’ve realized this blog has been on the back burner for about 4 months. I had so much content and many story’s I’ve been dying to post and write about, but in September I underwent my 2nd brain surgery. And over the past few months with all the holidays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas I needed to focus on my health and the next steps I need to take, to take care of myself both emotionally and physically.
I have a new job doing something I’ve never done, Customer Service. I know it sounds dumb because every job I have ever done requires some form of customer service, but that is now the sole role of my job. Answering phones, making returns, creating, paying, and deleting layaways. It has been absolutely terrifying. But I love a new challenge, and it keeps my mind off of health problems I continue to have, and the pay isn’t bad either.
While I start this new chapter in my career I can’t help but miss my time at Disney and all the amazing people I’ve met because of it. While my new job is challenging it misses something that I’ve always enjoyed so much about working at Disneyland, and that’s the feeling of magic, and family.
Working at Disney was never a job where you were on your own, in a way you were constantly surrounded by people who celebrated you, and made you feel important. Even on your bad days, or when you did something wrong there was always someone there who could make you feel better and make you laugh to forget about it. I will always cherish going into the parks after a shift, hanging out and seeing my friends. That feeling of family is very hard to find in a regular job. I only really know 3 people at my job because I’m so isolated at the store and I’m not aloud to leave the customer service area.
The Disney magic is also very hard to duplicate. From creating the magic for the guest to other cast members creating the magic for you. I know cast members talk a lot about the rude guests who cussed them out, But there is always that one family that was so grateful for the little bit of magic you were able to create for them. That’s what makes the job worth wild, and made you want to come back to do it all over again the next day. That positive atmosphere is always something I will continue to love and take with me everywhere.
My family has grown over the past few months. My husband and I have welcomed an annoying and cute little fur baby, Luna. She’s a Yorkipoo and loves to cause trouble. But she’s very smart and supper cuddly. It’s taken some time ( like 2 months) but Thor has finally warmed up to her, and they get along so well. We couldn’t be any happier to have another addition to our small family. And who knows, maybe sometime in the future we will have a human baby not just fur babies (hahahah). But as for now our family is the perfect size.
I know this has been a short update about my life, and don’t worry this blog isn’t going anywhere except on more disney trips, and more adventures in our life as a navy family. so thank you for continuing to join me and not give up on this blog. Some disney surprises are coming soon to this blog so please hang in their with me.
Thanks for all the love and support.
