I am so inspired. And dreamy. I have a strong feeling that this might be the most childish post ever. But I don't care. I just watched The Princess and the Frog and now my mind is miles away from reality.
My favorite princess of all time is Belle.
She's the only princess who loved a beast. It's easy to love a prince, but it takes a strong heart to love a beast.
But anyways, when I watched the Princess and the Frog, I totally see myself in Princess Tiana. We're alike in so many levels.
I'm not gonna spoil the movie. So if you haven't seen it and deep in your heart you believe that nobody is too old for happily-ever-afters, this is not the movie you wanna miss. I say, this is my favorite Disney fairy tale now. Not to mention I really fell in love with the prince! He is the best prince ever. The movie is really fun, I laughed a lot. And cried too. So yeah, watch it and tell me what you think!!!
I just wanna share the sweetest line (I think) from the movie by Prince Naveen:
"Tiana... is my Evangeline."
That may not make sense until you see the movie. But this really made me smile and cry at the same time.
I know for most, fairy tales are nothing but mumbo-jumbo. Even Hans Christian Andersen, the father of the modern fairy tale, said, "Life is not always a fairy tale". Maybe yes. Maybe no. I think it's on how we see life.
(Yes, that's him. This is our picture together at the park last year.)
Sometimes, we are too busy waiting when will the prince of our dreams bring us the other pair of glass slippers, without noticing he already have walked with us every step of the way. Sometimes we are too busy waiting for him to come and fight the dragons just to give us the kiss that will end our lifetime of slumber when in fact he is just sitting right next to us all the time. Sometimes we are too busy waiting for the day to arrive when the beast will finally be torn to let that shining prince come out but we are just so preoccupied of the fragile petal of the rose that we didn't even have time to look back to see the prince standing behind us. Sometimes it's not about kissing the frog and make him a prince but being kissed by a frog that leads us to happy ending.
You see, there is no harm in waiting. In fact, great things come to those who wait. It's just that happily ever after doesn't always begin with once upon a time. The prince of our dreams can be the man of our waking moments. It's funny people think fairy tales don't exist. It does. It doesn't just happen the way they want it to happen. Fairy tale is not a dream when we are sleeping but a reality when we are awake.
Unexpectedly as it may happen to be, but we just tend to close our eyes to see a fairy tale. The truth is, we can't see it unless we open our eyes wide. You don't have to look any further because it is just around the corner, that is why we wait. But the hardest thing about fairy tale is, sometimes we don't know when the wait is finally over.
