Happy Ever After, Happy Endings

Back on June 6, 2012 (6,6,12 – I’m such a nerd when it comes to mathematically awesome dates), I had a short entry post on Fairy tales…

Fairy tales

Who’s at fault for fairy tales getting a bad reputation?

The writer who won’t write the story because she is convinced that no one believes in them anymore…

The Prince who is too afraid to take that chance and kiss the girl…

The Princess who is too afraid to fall asleep thinking he won’t be there to wake her…

Currently I’m stuck on ‘Happy Ever After’ …’Happy Endings’ and what that means in general, in theory, in relationships, in day to day, everyday, cliche or not.

With the New Year right around the corner, it seems these phrases are getting a lot of traction. But they are said and tossed around so willy-nilly I think it diminishes their value.

I think the problem is that there’s no ‘ending’ in happy endings. Every day continues to progress and you can either continue to work at the ever after or get stuck in a cliched hamster wheel.

It’s no secret I believe in the happily ever after. I know it’s possible. I know things aren’t always cartwheels and chocolate chips. There tends to be a little bit of this sucks mixed into the everyday happy middle.

I don’t want to spoil the ending for you but … It’s all going to end up OK. And if you aren’t willing to risk everything, you’ll never appreciate the full story of your fairy tale.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

John, my love
