A New Year's Ephipany

I will never win the lottery and be able to quit my job.

I will never buy a chocolate bar and find a golden ticket inside.

There is no knight in shining armor coming to rescue me.

Prince Charming will not appear at my door, holding a glass slipper.

Fairy Godmothers and magic wands do not exist.

I am responsible for my own happily ever after.

For years, that used to terrify me.

But now, it excites me to no end.


  1. I found part of me screaming..."no, no, don't say that, don't shatter my illusions too." :-)
    ...But, by the time I got to the end I was with you in the excitement!

    This is a quietly profound and very powerful piece of writing.

    Very empowering, I really loved it!

    (I have the urge to write a blog post inspired by this, on my Joy Frequencies blog, if I manage to pull it together would it be OK for me to use this in my post? I will give you credit of course. You can find my email address on my blogger profile.)

    Happy new year!
