Since Valentine’s day is right around the corner, I have decided to write about the unexpected proposal. These happen a lot and tend to be even better than the planed proposal. I find that when I look at proposal stories that have to do with Disney, the unexpected proposal tends to happen more often than the planed proposal. So why go through all the planning?
Proposals are supposed to be special. Every guy who has planned a proposal has had this perfect day or time in their mind. Girls, we do it too. We may imagine how our perfect proposal would be and then we would hope that our best girlfriends tell our future fiance about it. In a perfect world, perfect proposals would go exactly as planned and would be amazing. But we don’t live in a perfect world and we all know that proposals rarely go exactly as planned. But sometimes, it’s the unexpected moment that makes a proposal perfect.
The most important part of a proposal is making sure that you propose at the right time. You want to make sure it is the right moment, one that is worth remembering. Don’t worry guys, there’s no need to stress. If you plan a day or evening full of things both of you love to do, the right moment will just happen.
At Disney, you might be meeting your love’s favorite princess and that princess begins to talk about you being her prince and her hoping that you live happily ever after. That would be a perfect moment to just say, “well actually, *enter name here* I was wondering if you would let be the prince charming in your happily ever after.” Ok that is cheesy, well I think it’s cute, but you get the point. You may plan an evening at the beach and be taking a walk at sunset and she makes a comment about how beautiful it is and then your perfect moment arrives. I guess my point is: the perfect moment is usually isn’t planned.
As a treat…check out this video of a proposal that happened after a couple ran into Push the talking trash can on the Tomorrowland Bridge in Walt Disney World. It’s pretty awesome
This week on the Pixie Dust Project we are featuring Surprises! Surprises are the best way to spread pixie dust!! You may be thinking, “but what if people don’t like surprises?” Everyone likes surprises, it just depends on the kind of surprise. Most people say, “Don’t surprise me for my birthday,” because they don’t like attention being drawn to them. But everyone likes a good surprise.
Surprises can be great. I never get to go home. However, every time I do go home, we make sure that my grandmother has no idea that I am coming home. It can be really hard to keep that secret, especially when you are trying to make plans for a short weekend home. My cousin asked me on my last trip, “How come whenever you come home it has to be a surprise?” I couldn’t really respond until after that trip. The reason it has to be a surprise is because it brings my grandmother such joy to see me appear on her doorstep. The look of shock and the huge hug that I always get tell me that this is something that really makes her happy. Bam, I give her pixie dust every time I go home!
Now pixie dust can be spread by all kinds of surprises. This includes surprising yourself. I did that today. I surprised myself in a BIG way. Today I took a major step that I have been avoiding. I finally went and donated my hair. Anyone who has done this will tell you that this is a big step. It’s hard work to grow your hair out and then to just have it all chopped off and given to someone else…WOAH, shut the front door! Big Big steps! But it feels great!
There is no rule in this pixie dust project that says that you can’t spread pixie dust to yourself. In fact, in spreading pixie dust to others, you are automatically giving yourself and extra dose of this wonderful stuff. My challenge for you this week is to surprise someone or yourself. You can bake goodies for your co-workers, bring flowers to a friend, accomplish something HUGE that you never thought you could do, and more! Think of the endless possibilities!
Go…GO spread pixie dust! What are you waiting for!
