Day 36 - Abandoning the little girl (At Peace)

Nov 16, 2010

I will not be perpetually strong, nor will I always be required to give more than I take. I do not have to be eternally grateful that I exist, although I must live with gratitude because life is a blessing. And I will fall just a bit in love with everyone I meet, because I am a story teller, I am a creator, and I am also a bit coarse and street smart.

I explained to someone today that my job was to repackage fairy tales, heroes tales, and create a bit of hope while finding a way to make money doing it, and I am at peace with that magical blend of practicality and fantasy. Although I might approach some days with the feisty aggression of my business brain, I will approach just as many with the romanticism of my poet. And in this duality, the little girl - who optimistic, dreams of the fairy tale and the woman who understands that princess movies generate a delicious target audience - will play together creating stories and living happily ever after.

I can be both without fear, and I will be me.
