Do you sit reading fairy tales to your children, or remember childhood tales of princesses, knights and happy ever afters?
Life really is like a fairy tale - we just forget to see it that way sometimes. How? Well let’s take that story of the Princess and her ‘evil’ stepmother and how the Princess was banished to the forest to be executed.
The Princess’s life started off happily, playing in the castle without a care in the world, surrounded by people she loved, feeling safe and secure.
Life events, such as the loss of her mother, meant her life was turned upside down. Not only losing someone she dearly loved but also feeling like an outsider in her own place of safety.
Fast forward a few years and jealousy from her stepmother meant the princess was outcast from the castle.
Did this make the Princess bitter and angry? No. She adapted to her new role, not judging others for their size, attitudes or life choices.
Eventually she did meet her Princess Charming just by being herself.
If we look back and think about most fairy tales, we only remember the good parts. The Princess, the friendships she made. But if you look at almost any fairy tale, the main character had to overcome a lot of adversity to become happy.
Isn’t it about time you took control of your own fairy tale? Not blaming others for the last chapter but realising you really can make your fairy tale have its own happy ending?
How many times do you allow that little inner voice to control you? Let’s call him JayCee(JC). Now JC sits on your shoulder and maybe in the past fed negative thoughts in. You know the one, the little voice that says “You can’t do that, imagine how you’ll feel if it all went wrong?”, or “Do you think you’re really good enough to do that?”. Most of us at some point have doubted our ability and stopped ourselves from doing something we really wanted to do.
Which character in a fairy tale do you currently liken your life to?
Are you the Princess trapped up a tower waiting to be rescued?
Are you the underdog following around the heroine?
OR maybe you feel like a hero or a bad guy in your story?
Then it’s all about making those changes to become that real you in your perfect story.
Who would my character be? I know you’re probably wondering.
I am definitely a bit of a Peter Pan with a twist of Tinkerbell thrown in too.
Many of the innocence we have in childhood is lost on the way by learnt behaviour, past events. I have re-learnt that treating everything as an adventure and calling problems challenges has allowed me to flick that inner JC off my shoulder and look forward to my next adventure.
