(Un)Graceful

 

Once upon a time, there was a little girl, wanting to live her own fairytale. People are always looking for that, right? She wanted to be loved and dance listening to Presley's ballads. Today, many years after, she lives it. Maybe she is not living in the penthouse, she doesn't wear Chanel, but she is loved because she loves someone. And she has her own sky with the stars who don't fall. And there I am.

Many years ago, my mother was sick of cancer. I don't really remember all of those last moments with her, but some of those moments changed my perspective. She loved the laughter of cartons actors, but more of it she loved to spend time with me. One day, she was laying in her bed, in her room, talking to me about my sweet sixteenth birthday party. We were laughing so hard! She wanted to know everything about my prince, even she didn't know who he actually was. I told her that he wanted to buy a star for me and call it by my name. She promises me that she will stand out of her bed and go by the window to look at my star. Days after my birthday, her health was even worst. The medicaments were so hard that ruins her mind. She couldn't recognize which things were real and which ones are not. She also couldn't get up from her bed. Then she just looks at me and asks "Are your star is shining?"

Today, many years later, I realize that I actually live at my own fairytale. Creating all that I ever wanted. Writing the new post for my dream journal. Just finished the call with a best friend who brings the great news. Today I have spent my morning in my prince's apartment, watching all of his super ordinary stuff. Toothbrush, video games, his shirts... Waiting for him to come home from work. Packing my super unusual things to go somewhere else. Not for too long, I hope so. In prince's apartment, I will leave my fragrance, my shoes and my heart, because I will be back soon. And maybe I am the Sun, and he is the Moon, but even those two can be seen at the same sky sometimes. Even if it means to be apart until the moment we can create our Empire together.

But today, mum, I want to tell you, even if you are not around, that my star is really shining. It shines so brightly like I can never imagine before! And even if we don't have everything we ever wanted, it's just because of the perspective. Maybe we don't have that one paper who allow us to have the star, but we have the whole sky to watch it. And there I am. Graceful me.
