There are lyrics in this one that say, “forget about your worries and your strife.” So take this advice from Baloo the bear and tune out of the bad day for a little bit. Just focus on the bare necessities of life and not the things that have given you such a bad day.

Sometimes you just have to let it go.  Feel empowered in knowing that you have control of your own life and your own day. Just seriously let it go and focus on the positives in your day.  So you may not have icy powers, but you can totally still turn your day around and have a great one!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
