Happily Ever After

Many people have said that Happily Ever After is a myth and only belongs in some Disney movie. I say “Bah! Humbug!” to that notion.
We have spent our childhoods dreaming of those days when Prince Charming would show up to rescue us in our distress and kiss our pain away so why erase that image from our minds?
Have people become so disgruntled with love that they believe that it’s next to impossible to create this kind of romance for ourselves?
We are living in dark times right now. The world is in financial straits, politicians have no real solutions, oh and Jennifer Anniston was divorced a century ago. I know, I know, horrible!
As disheartening as the aforementioned problems of our societies are, we cannot give up on the fairytales. They were a significant part of our lives as children and have remained with us throughout adulthood.
Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty had their trials and tribulations but did they give up the fantasy? No, they kept living in spite of their dire circumstances and one day…he has arrived.
No, not the loser that their friends and relatives tried to convince them to settle with but the man that could celebrate their beauty, admire their fortitude, and would hold out his hand if she had a time of weakness.
Happily Ever After is not delusional but a dream that can actually come true
