She’s no princess

She fell in love with fairytales
And dreamed of castles
She wanted the crown
The knight in shining armour…

She fell in love in with an idea
That she never could have
Not because she was worthless
Simply because
She was no princess…

A wise man once said that just to live is an act of courage
And live she just did
Every day dreaming of crowns on the battle grounds

She was a warrior
She was a valkyrie
She was an amazonian
She was a godess
Yet life had worn her down
And made her feel worthless

Keep on fighting
You are not worthless
You have more courage than those silly little princesses

The important thing is, To be ready at any moment to sacrifice what you are, For what you could become

The important thing is, To be ready at any moment to sacrifice what you are, For what you could become

– Charles Dubois

Holding on is what we do, we hold on to a belief or a thought that this is the way we are supposed to be living,

Holding on to stories that we’ve been brought up with, Like the Disney Princess story,

You know growing up, find love, at first sight, get married and live happily ever after…

Even though this rarely happens, 

That was just one example, there are many examples of us holding on…

The issue is whilst we’re holding on to some story we’re not allowing any more to unfold

Sometimes you just need to let go, Live that Pocahontas life and go where the wind takes you

Take a risk and sacrifice your old self so a new one can emerge.

‘Yeah but what if that life is no good for me’…

What if it is
