Day 185 Question 185:
Do you believe in fairytales?
Yes, I know this is a silly question. I found the picture above online and thought it was pretty fitting to me and funny as well. Here I am, this independent woman who has been single way longer than not. I admit that I do believe in fairytales but my fairytale is a little bit different than those that we all read about in children’s books. My fairytale does not necessarily involve meeting Prince Charming, falling in love and living happily ever after. I mean…that would be nice and all but I also live in the real world too. Prince Charming is nonexistent….well so is Princess Charming :0). I feel like if you burp or fart (which we all do) then the whole “charming” thing goes straight out the window.
I love the idea of life being a fairytale. For some it might be something that is unrealistic and people just holding out for things that are hopeless but I love the idea of having a whimsical dream. I believe it is our dreams that give us hope. Fairytales can be designed however we want them to be. My Prince Charming will not be riding a white horse and will not be tall, extremely handsome and rich (well I wouldn’t mind tall and handsome ;0). My Prince Charming will come into my life if the time serves to be right and he will love me at my high points and love me the same during my low points. My Prince Charming will never use my “weaknesses” or “flaws” against me or call me dramatic or psycho because, like many men believe, “all women are”. As super cheesy as it sounds, I believe fairytales come true when you find love of yourself. This allows others to love you just as much….you reap what you sow. Fairytales are what you want them to be…hence why they are called tales…you get to write your own story.
Fairytales do not need to revolve around a handsome, rich prince or a young woman longing for love. Fairytales can be the stories of those going above and beyond to make others happy…at least that is what I believe. It is not the materials but the effort behind the gesture. If you know me in any way you know that I like to write my own script in life. You know that I do not follow the norms and I do not believe everything that is said just because the majority does. People can tell me I am wrong when it comes to believing in what a fairytale really is and that is fine but I am still going to choose to believe that fairytales are what you want them to be. I am not a damsel in distress but I still believe that my life has been a happy journey and will have a very happy ending. I mean, isn’t a fairytale all about the happy ending (in theory of course)????
