Fairest of them all. . .

“She dreamed improbable dreams. Followed her heart & created her own little fairytale”

I always wondered what it would feel like to live a real life fairytale. But then I began to wonder what fairytales were portrayed to us as. Each and every fairytale had a perfect princess, who fell in love with a prince and that was her happy ending. But that is not my fairytale, and not my happy ending, and I don’t think that’s yours either. Yes we all crave love, and to be in love, but to call that our happy ending would be spurious because in reality, it’s just the beginning; a new chapter. A happy ending is our entire beautiful journey. It is not only the happy infinite moments, but also the bumps, bruises, and scars along the way. It is those moment that we mend ourselves back together, and we look back months, years later and say, “wow, I overcame that.” A fairytale includes all the small moments of life, a simple glance from a stranger, a precious childhood memory to a warm embrace from a loved one. It also includes big moments like falling in love, heartbreak, and the strength to start over. But most of all, your fairytale begins and ends with you. Falling in love with you is the best fairytale you could ever write. You have the pen in your hand and you have the power and choice to say “I can and I will.” There’s no place I’d rather be than right here in my real, imperfect, beautifully flawed fairytale, beginning and ending with a journey of discovering and finding me.

Welcome to June! ¬†With each month that passes I feel like we get a renewal card, like here you go start fresh! We all deal with crazy situations and really it is all about how we look at the situation. At first it seems unbearable, but when we really allow ourselves to work through the motion of it, we find we are stronger than we give ourselves credit for. Whether it’s starting a new diet, a new exercise routine, or getting over a bad situation, try to find the good in it, and let that lead you, and motivate you to push on! Here’s your fresh start, your new chance, to start over! Let’s bring in June with a bang!
