On December 5th, 1901 Walter Elias Disney was born in Hermosa, Illinois. What a life it would become. Walt Disney, along with his brother Roy, changed so much of our world. He was a dreamer, a perfectionist, and a passionate man. He believed in doing something right and giving it your all. Without him, all of our lives would be a little bit duller. So, Happy Birthday Walt Disney!
“It all begins with dreams. As a kid, I was a dreamer. I’d sit in class and I’d be way off. What I was dreaming about I don’t know. I was always getting lectured: ‘Now, Walter, I know you’re intelligent’. I was always a creative kid. I built things in the backyard. I organized the kids of the neighborhood to build a tree house.” ~Walt Disney
Walt’s life was not without struggle or hardship. He encountered roadblocks constantly, but he never gave up. He was a firm believer in following through with an idea, and continuing to work on it until it blossomed into something beautiful and meaningful.
“Get a good idea and stay with it. Dog it, and work at it until it’s done right.” ~ Walt Disney
Thanks for everything Uncle Walt!
