Five Minute Friday: Story
On Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes. Unscripted. Unedited. Real. Check out mine below, and then see others at Five Minute Friday.
What is my story? Is it the Disney prince charming one? Or is it a nightmare on elm street horror type book? From where I sit, it is a combination of both. I have the prince, I have the fairytale life (minus the millions of dollars), but it has taken a lot of nightmares (well, more like rough roads) to get to this point. But, who doesn't have tough roads? Who doesn't have a little nightmare chapter in their story? If you say you don't, I say...your nightmare chapter just hasn't been written yet.
Its these chapters in life that make the fairytale chapters that much sweeter. Like the prince that has to fight the dragon to get to his one true love. She loves him even more because he fought so hard for their love.
The only thing we can hope for in our story is that the fairytale chapters far out weigh the nightmare ones. And that while living through those nightmares we hold on to the light at the end of the tunnel and know that the fairytale WILL be back.
That's my story...and I'm sticking to it!
