Disney Left Something Out
Growing up, I was like many of the girls in my generation who spent many hours watching Disney movies. We wanted to be like princess Jasmine, who gets kidnapped on a flying piece of tapestry to sing with a stranger, or Cinderella, a girl rides to the most extravagant ball in a pumpkin and later marries the prince because she accidentally drops her shoe.
Needless to say, the love portrayed through these 2D films instilled a desire for a 'Disney princess' fairytale romance.
Although it may alter between people, I think I can safely say that most everyone longs for that one special someone.
You know who I'm talking about.
That someone who says that you're beautiful even when it's 7:15 in the morning and you've just rolled out of bed. The one who you'll talk late into the night with and neither of you will agree to be the first to hang up (at least not without a good ten minutes of "you hang up first" and "no, you"s).
BUT I think we can all agree that when you find that special someone, we soon realize something...
"Hey. Disney left out what happens after they get together!"
Well, on a more serious note, for those of us who feel like we haven't found our 'prince charming' or 'princess lovely', don't give up.
Even Jasmine had to go through some jerks before she found Aladdin. And Ariel had her voice ripped out and her life completely turned around before she got with Eric.
So hang tight. Sooner than you think, you'll have a Eugene climbing into your tower of loneliness and then a new fairytale can begin.
------------------------------------------------ thought of the day
For so many people, there's such a strong and deep desire to be 'spoken for'. To have someone say "Sorry. You can't have ____. ___'s mine. I love ___ and I don't plan to let ____ go." I guess I have to ask, who says this to you and do you believe them?
