Fairytales Entwined with Reality.
Happily ever after's-the princess gets her prince, and everything works out in the end. The common narrative we have all been taught from earliest childhood. From childhood to adulthood we learn that the happily ever after's are far from reality. we learn that 3 years later the prince and princess split over an argument about the kids, and that perhaps happily ever after wasn't so happy after all. But what if there was a compromise between the two? Perhaps our stories can be happy, even if they are riddled with trials and hardships. What do I mean by this? There are things, moments, experiences, personal gain, conversations, even if it is the smallest of joys, that bring us delight. Even if its the smallest of sparks in the darkest depths of the soul, it lightens even the heaviest of loads from us. So, even if there is no happily ever after, the moments the light our souls, big or small, give us a "happily ever after" enough to call our lives worth living.
