I’ve always liked fairy tales. I believe most women, regardless of how young or old they are, wish they could be like Cinderella..at least for a day or two. After talking with a lot of different women throughout my life I think even the roughest ones, if you scrub off the harsh exterior, like putting on a little makeup, enjoy a lavish dessert, want to be adored by a man, and would just, really, like to feel like a lady.
Nowadays it seems for most of us getting to indulge in a lady-like lifestyle feels like a luxury. So, how do we, having been made women, seek to live out that destiny? A destiny where enjoying security, peace and love in our lives, putting on a pretty dress, working at jobs we are passionate about, being taken care of by a man, having children, and engaging in meaningful friendships is the norm rather than a fantasy?
I hope to explore those ideas with you here. I believe if we choose to live out our female destinies Cinderella won’t seem like such a fantasy after all.
In the meantime, while those of us who decide to choose that road stumble along the way, I will post encouraging stories of woman who have made it there or are clearly on the way. Transformed lives and happy endings make for great stories and help encourage each of us to press on.
