Wish (Out Loud)

I definitely grew up as a product of the Disney generation.  All girls are Princesses, and as long as they never give up hope, they will live happily ever after with their dashing Prince.   Walt also mentioned dreams and wishes a whole lot in his movies.  Very few of their movies omit the scene where the protagonist wishes for a brighter future.

As I grew up, I tried with all of my heart to hold on to those movies.  To believe in the happy ending.  It is never easy, and people are always reminding you that fairy tales and reality can't co-exist.  But the truth of the matter is, I have a Prince Charming who loves and adores me.  While it is up to me to work hard and provide for myself and my future, I got the hunk that Disney promised me.  I just wish Walt would have told me that you can't just wish and wait for something to happen, you have to go out and make the changes yourself.  You have to make your wishes come true.

This week I am wishing for the ability to stop and breathe when my everyday becomes too overwhelming.  I wish for the clarity to understand that this time in my life is hard, intentionally so, but that when it is over, I will be a better person for having endured it.  I also wish that I remember not to blame those around me for my own circumstances, and that everyone does the best they can with what they have.

Today I'm linking up with Wish (out loud).  Have you made a wish lately?

  1. I've been spending MONTHS conversing this topic with my therapist! I've learned that there's sort of a roller coaster look on the chart of good and bad days and the best understanding she ever taught me was that they both come and go. Realizing that every day passes helps me keep my mind in order to get through the bad ones.

    thanks for linking up

    I'm lovin all up on your blog!
