Oh, The Places We’ll Go

Hold my hand darling, the world awaits!

My bucket list consists of many big and small adventures along the way. The beaches, sand and sunsets with my hunny are my favorite things to do together. A beach girl at heart. It is easy to get so caught up in making a living, that you never make a life. I have to remind my husband of that a lot. We love to gaze at the sunsets together. Whether it be a last minute road trip, a Caribbean cruise or fly somewhere for vacation .

I am also on a journey to healthy living with my husband. We are committed to living healthy as we age together. I am on a path to share with you about learning to have self love to take care of yourself daily. It starts with you and loving yourself enough to make good choices for your everyday life. It is a life style, not the next big weight loss fad that is trending, but an everyday healthy lifestyle.

Join me on my journey to healthy living while living my bucket list!

Your Friend, Julia Lansdell

Gratitude means thanks and appreciation…which rhymes with attitude and comes from the Latin word gratus , which means thankful, pleasing. When you feel gratitude, you’re pleased by what someone did for you and also by the results.

Did you know that studies have shown that Gratitude can make you happier and heal pain & illnesses in your body. It boots your immunity to anger, disappointment and frustrations. Improving relationships and your body. Thanksgiving is a good holiday to give thanks for everything, we should be grateful everyday, not just on the holiday.

Have a positive attitude toward life and what comes at you on a daily basis. Being thankful for all the things that you have, family, and good health. Thinking of things that you are grateful each day. Don’t dwell on any negative thoughts. Be grateful for those in your life and be sure to tell them. When you only focus on positivity, it will return to you. As a christian believer, I have studied gratitude in the bible, and there are over 40 verses teaching on being thankful.

Benefits of Gratitude:

  1. Can give you energy.
  2. Help you become for other centered- inclined to help others
  3. Sleep better
  4. Will make you feel physically better
  5. Make you become less materialistic
  6. Help combat negativity

You are what you attract! Love and health will get better by being grateful where you are at in life at this moment.

!. Don’t be flashy- Don’t flash your cash or jewelry. Ladies need to zip up their purse! Guys need to put their wallet in their front pocket, so that it can’t get swiped.

2. Don’t be a loner- Strength are in numbers. Don’t walk alone. Take a cab. Get a hotel room in a good neighborhood. Spend the money on a good hotel in a good location.

3. Don’t look lost- Be confident! Know where you are going. Have navigation ready on gps before you leave home. Don’t be looking around like you are lost.

4. Use Common Sense- use common sense when traveling. Go in the store if lost and get directions.

Funtastic Walt Disney World

Disney World is the world-famous for its four Theme parks ( Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park), two Water Parks (Disney Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney Blizzard Beach Water Park), over 25 Resort Hotel properties, and a variety of additional entertainment offerings.

In the picture is Magic Kingdom Park! Me and the hubs went on our vacation on April 16, 2017. We purchased the hopper tickets for all the parks. There is something for everyone to enjoy. We had a wonderful day of fun. The fireworks are at 9 pm every night and the fireworks are so magical. Very spectacular- it is amazing and such a fabulous way to end the day.

Some info

– there are lots of shuttle buses to pick you up in the parking lot from your car to the front gate

– there were no long lines for purchasing tickets that morning at 9 am, only at security check lines

– I recommend buying the fast passes to not wait in long lines, you can bypass the lines for $60 each

– Download the Disney app for wait times and map for navigating around the park too.

Get your Disney package!

The food was good, the facilities were clean too. Staff was very nice and helpful with navigating with ease.

We had so much fun at Disney World and can’t wait to go back soon!
