When I was a little girl, I loved fairy tales. It wasn't for the girl becoming a princess or even for her finding her prince. It was for the adventure. As adults, we cast them aside as not being real but life can mirror fairy tales in so many ways.
We all start our journey somewhere.
Dreaming upon the life we hope for ourselves.
Until one day, we realize that life doesn't need to be a dream.
We charge forward in hope and wonder through our own mystical forest.
We clutch on to all that we have in fear that we've lost our way through the woods.
And possibly, we get ourselves into trouble.
But it takes that trouble to show us all that we can be. Before you know it, something you've always had that seemed ordinary becomes extraordinary.
And you become the person you were always meant to be.
You become a person with the strength and grace to rule your own world with the kindness and gratitude that is written into these stories.
