I’ve realized, most of us, grow up wanting the fairytale ending we read in books, and see in movies. We are so focused on that happy ending that sometimes forget to enjoy the moment. Yes, there is hurt and heartbreak when the ending comes too soon, or not as expected (not that we ever expect it) but when looking back, you’ll see you’ve smiled, you’ve been happy, you’ve allowed yourself to dream, be hopeful, and be full of good expectations.
Unfortunately we have to land back to “ordinary” life when things don’t work out but, hopefully we come back stronger, and better equipped for the next story.
I know… You didn’t have your fairytale ending this time but at least you did get a fairytale moment, one that made you happy while it lasted, and leaves you wanting for it to happen again, and hopeful that next time will be for “ever after”.
While that fairytale ending comes, remember my favorite quote from the movie “Hope Floats”
