As I was watching, one line jumped out at me. The prince's evil stepmother doesn't want the prince to get married because his new wife would then take her crown. So she plots to send his fiancee to "a place with no happy endings."
Put another way, our world.
Man oh man.
All of these fairy tale shows and movies refer to the "real" world as a horrible place with no magic and no happy endings.
But honestly, who wants to live like this? Live someplace horrible with no happy endings? Not me. And I bet not you either.
And I know that's not a very realistic point of view or stance to take, but who wants to be realistic? You know what, I don't. None of us started out realistic. We started out as kids with dreams and hope and a belief in magic. Somewhere along the line someone taught us to be realistic. Ugh.
I was looking through my big book of quotes that I've been keeping for years the other day. I saw a quote in there that I love but hadn't thought about in a long time. And it is this:
People say that the movies should be more like real life.
It is real life that should be more like the movies.
Can I get an Amen?
