It’s hard not to wish life was more a fairytale. Who wouldn’t want to be royalty and have access to magical abilities?
Unfortunately, in life, there are no such things as fairy godmothers or singing animals. Prince Charming, if/when you find him, won’t be perfect. A gorgeous dress or glass slipper aren’t going to solve all of your problems. You going to have to save yourself from time to time, kiss a few frogs to find the one, and figure out a way to make your dreams come true without pixie dust. It will be messy at times and not everything you set out to do will end with the perfect happily ever after.
However, just because your happy ending requires some work, it doesn’t mean it will be any less magical than that of a made-up princess. In fact, you just might find it’s even more meaningful. You didn’t need a fairy godmother to get you there.
Life is not a fairytale.
