Movie Fairy Tales

So I'm sitting here watching The Princess Diaries 2, and I must say, it's a classic. It's a wholesome movie, without the sexual aspects or bad language prevalent in so many movies. Princess Mia proves Genovia that she doesn't need a man by her side to rule a country, but at the same time, she falls in love with the man that is supposed to be her "enemy". If you haven't seen The Princess Diaries 1 or 2, you definitely should watch them!

Honestly, I'm a sucker for a good love story. I know movie scripts aren't real life, but it's still fun to snuggle down and enjoy a good chick-flick every once in awhile, so long as you don't lose sight of reality. The thing with a movie script is that once the conflicts are resolved, the movie ends, and the credits role. However, in life, the happily ever after always has its ups and downs. Although life can be rough, it is so much better than any movie could portray!

I guess what I'm trying to say with this post is enjoy movies and getting lost in the fictional world, but remember reality is never like the movies! There will always be troubles and conflicts. However, life will also be full of great surprises and blessings :)

  1. I'm with you! I always remind myself when I'm in the middle of a trial that I am "in the middle of my story." It sometimes brings me comfort to remember that even the books/movies that have the most wonderful endings still have stressful middles. ;)
