Happier ever after ;; version 2015

Everyday we wish for a happier ever after. I know i do. I watch my friends and family with their families and their loved ones & i wish for what they have. I try to imagine my life with that much love & joy. But life, it isn’t all fairy tales & stuff of dreams. Like the quote states.

Reality is much stormier.”

Yes I want a life of bliss, of hope, of love. So much love that i can’t breathe. But a happier ever after doesn’t exsist. Life is so much more complicated then that. Whats the point in life if it’s all sunflowers & daises? We need excitement in our lives, its how we stay alive. There is so much more to life then the constant ‘happy ever after’. Theres heart break, theres loss. And as much as all that hurts, its what keeps us alive. It’s what helps us grow.

We have to make mistakes, to learn from them. It’s what changes us. Its what strengthens us. It’s what makes us, us. Everyone gets a happier ever after. Just not the fairy tale kind. It’s our own version.

Happier ever after / version 2015 😛

Once upon a time. Happily ever after. The stories we tell are the stuff of dreams. Fairy tales don’t come true. Reality is much stormier. Much murkier. Much scarier. Reality. It’s so much more interesting than living happily ever after.

    Nicely written! I absolutely agree that mistakes are what define us. It's our mistakes that teach us how to bounce back and rise up <3

    Interesting read! I totally agree that we need to learn from our mistakes. I don't personally dream of a life more exciting then it is, I like the life I have.

    Oh I so agree that we do need the opportunity to make mistakes and learn. Otherwise, how do we know to do it better?

    Yes, we all get our happily ever after and it's not the fairy tale ones. We get the story that's meant for us and the one we deserve. It may not be as sweet as it is in fairy tales but it might be an better one.

    If everything was perfect all the time then life wouldn't be very interesting. Sometimes, the ups and downs make life more fun and the experience more fulfilling.

    This crazy little thing called life is what keeps us all ticking each day. It took many years of ups and downs to reach the point I am at in my life and I could not be happier. Keep the faith!

    Hi Angie, I agree life is so much more complicated that then happy ever after fairy tales. Life is much more colorful and that box of crayons has some dark shades in it. It's hard to appreciate the good times when you haven't weather some bad ones.

    Ahhhhh the stuff that dreams are made of I see in my children's eyes. Happily everafter didn't come for me until I met my soulmate the man I'm married to now. He's everything I ever wanted and more. I had a rough start of it, but your life is what you make it to be. If you don't like it change it & never look back. You'll be a lot happier for it.

    I agree with you, the fairytale books make it sound like we all need the "happier ever after" but in reality life just continues. In my opinion, You decide how you want to live and what's the "happy part". Mine was definitely having my daughter.

    Great post. When you think of happily ever after, you rarely think of the hardships that come before. However, if you look at any fairy tale, happily ever after never comes until you have a little misery.

    Happy ever after surely isn't fairy tales for most of us, but it can definitely be just as incredible! Hoping you find what makes you happiest in 2015, and you don't have to weather to many storms to get there.
