Question of the Day

Do you still believe in fairy tales?

Do you still believe in "Happily Ever After"?

I had an interesting conversation with a friend of my last night, and I'm happy to report that he still believes in the power and the existence of unquestionable, undeniable, unconditional love. Do you?

I do believe in fairy tales and unconditional love, but happily ever after comes with a lot of hard work, it takes TWO committed people and it isn't always perfect.
I believe it can exist when we let go of our fears, expectations, and judgements and all of that is easier to say than do.

I've been thinking about this a lot...I want to believe in this, not as a fairy tale, but as a reality that one can live. I'm wondering if you need to live it out within yourself to get comfortable with it before taking it out in the real world and practicing it with someone else.

I've noticed that if you haven't had this experience before and been able to really live it out longer than a bit of a relationship, that you may need to reevaluate your own patterns and actions...then change them accordingly. I would love to think that I have behaved absolutely perfectly in every relationship and it was indeed someone else's fault, but even if I had, why would I have chosen that particular person in the first place?, begins the interesting and sometimes heartbreaking process of cleaning up your "little messes" you know...until that prince charming comes riding up on that horse...leading another horse (cause' you don't need to be "rescued")

I don't believe in Fairy Tales. I believe in the power of love and the hard work and compromise and humbelness that goes along with it. I believe that I'm not always right and mine is not the only view, which means that it's sometimes hard to keep silent and just be there...but it works for me and it brings me happiness. We are all different and there is not just one formula that works.
