The Constant Princess: From Midnight and Beyond…

Before I left my house for work this morning, I sprayed myself with some perfume (like I do most other days as well). Today I just grabbed a random perfume on my vanity without really looking at which one it was. When I finally realized it was a blue bottle with a “glass slipper” on the cap, I remembered I had bought it as a little girl in Disney World (shows how often I use that perfume because it is still pretty much full to the top). The perfume was called Cinderella—one of my favorite Disney princesses (it’s a toss-up between her and Belle). As I sprayed the perfume on my neck, I said to myself, “I’m a princess today.” But what I realized next is the best part—I’m a princess everyday.

You may be wondering how I came to that conclusion because it sounds pretty self-centered and as if I’m a spoiled girl if you ask me. Well, here is my thought: most every girl/woman is a princess everyday no matter size, shape, ethnicity, age, religion, etc. and we all deserve to be treated like one. We have to realize how lucky we are and how fortunate we are to be living the lives that we live. Even if we struggle or have numerous challenges, we have to think about all of the positives. That, to me, is the epitome of a true princess.

We can view Kate (and her spectacular Royal Wedding) as a wonderful example. She was just a “normal” girl living a life somewhat similar to all of ours. Once she met Prince William, her life changed from there. I’m sure like every other girl, she dreamt about being a princess, but her reality came true in the literal sense. Our dreams can all come true in the figurative sense that we are our own princesses, title or no title.

  2. So very true! Belle is my favorite because she started out a normal girl! Everything about how we perceive ourselves is all based on confidence. I love this post!
