..It's about people who wait for blessings to just fall in their lap & actually think they deserve it...You can't have good things come to you in life when you don't do anything at all...Plus I think the harvest is sweeter when you know you planted & nurtured the plant with your own hands....^-^

“Bibbidi bobbidi boo!”…Ask just about any little girl on the street where these words came from & you are sure to get pretty hyper, sparkling eyes & a sweet, charming smile along with the uttering of a familiar name…”Cinderella!”…Correct!...I applaud anyone who can accurately remember these lines from the scene where little twinkly stars are swirling around our gorgeous, blonde heroine as her filthy smelly rags turn into a beautiful sky blue ball gown along with the matching famous glass slippers.
 
Oh yes!...The ever famous Cinderella…an inspiration to all little girls out there…A beacon of light who points out that all the tiring drudgery in life will end with a handsome prince on a white horse swinging you off your feet & taking you to his castle…Your annoying nag of a mom will stop bugging you to clean your room up as you have hundreds of chamber maids lined up for that chore. You won’t need to pester busy, grumpy daddy for an allowance raise because you already got your own treasury with all the perks & even your own accountant. No more irritating brat of a sister or big bully of a brother to worry about since you would never have to share anything with them anymore. All thanks to that hunky piece of a man in colorful tights & a cape that took you to his kingdom and made you his queen….
 
Or not….Come to think of it…No Prince Charming really exists…You won’t be riding an expensive palomino anytime soon & you won’t be sleeping in what used to be Napoleon’s lavish four poster bed….
 
YUP….you read it right…no fat rats turning into your coach drawing ponies….no pumpkin morphing into a beautiful well-engineered four-wheel drive…no free make-up sessions from popular celebrity stylists or even heavily discounted designer threads.
 
Because Cinderella never existed…And she never will…You can read all the so-called real life fairytales and you will never find a lady who just sat back & waited for all the good things to come raining into her lap…NO…She put on her heels….or sneakers…then went out the door & got it…
 
Even Cinderella slaved away under her evil stepmother & stepsisters before her fairy godmother came to her aid & helped her clinch her Prince Charming….
 
…SO YEAH…sitting back on your butt and waiting for that imaginary look alike of David Beckham to come on that costly Arabian steed just to take you away from the boring humdrum of your everyday life is impossible…ZERO CHANCES…NADA.NIL.ZILCH….
 
..So before you dream your whole life away, why not do something about it & get like MuLan or Ariel?...Wouldn’t it feel more empowering to know you did something..maybe even a lot to get to where you are right now?....Wouldn’t you love the sense of accomplishment from you rescuing your prince?....Yes, it may make you doubt your so called savoir…But you can’t let the guys have all the fun & action…
 
…So get up off your butt, out that door & into the wide world…Who knows…your prince might just be around the corner needing assistance in calming his little sister down...  ;3
