My Dear Future Readers,
A little girl dreams of a Knight in Shining Armor. A Prince who would carry her off to a beautiful castle where they would live happily ever after. As a young girl who enjoyed watching Disney movies and reading old fairy tales, I, too believed in this dream. After all, isn’t it grand to be carried off into the sunset by a dashing gentleman who risked his life to save you?
A person, usually a man, who comes to the aid of another, usually a woman, in a gallant and courteous manner.
Yes, it is. But as we grow up that dream fades because we realize fairy tales are not real. Fairy tales don’t have to be real to make you believe. You believe because you know that fairy tales were there when you needed someone to prove that good things really exist. So, you believe in the Prince who would take you away and make your life beautiful. It is that exact image that every girl grows up with. Painting a picture in her head of a handsome Knight in Shining Armor who would fight to protect her with his own life.
But each of us have our own Prince. Meaning, when the time is “right” he will come. Yes, I can understand that many of us, women don’t want to wait. So, we go out looking but I believe that if true love is meant to find you, you don’t have to look too hard because he will find you.
I believe that a knight in shining armor does exist. Maybe, the prince has forgotten the fairy tales and therefore forgotten about looking for his princess. It happens. In fact, people say “you need to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.” Maybe, there is some truth to it but perhaps it is not the only thing.
Knights should be brave, confident, and come to the rescue. So far, I have not met a man like that. It feels like that kind of person is rare and at times, my girlish dreams seem wrong. But, I want what I want and I know that if I stop wanting to meet a person like that, I will never meet him.
I know it seems silly, but I believe in getting my own magical fairy tale happy ending and yes, it may make you laugh but I do believe in happily ever after.
Because in the world that we live in everything is sometimes really gloomy and unfeeling. The sentiments of romance and a happily ever after ending is rarely visited if only in fairy tales and that is why we must strive to believe in a happily ever after. In the words of actress, Ginnifer Goodwin who plays Snow White in Once Upon A Time:
“What are fairy tales? Fairy tales are a sense of hope that one day everything will be okay and that a happily ever after does exist.”
This is why I strongly believe in happily ever after and knights in shining armor. After all, knights in shining armor are a wonderful representation of fairy tales and dreams and hope. Sometimes, it is this hope that dreams come true that pushes us to go forward and achieve something that we thought was impossible.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
