HAPPILY N/EVER AFTER?

Love unconditional

I have read the books,seen the movies and fantasized the heart warming play by play of a fairy tale. Only, the laid down scenes don’t really happen in real life. Or if they do I ought to shift continents let alone countries to get to where it actually happens. All that goes into the making of a fairy tale is what should be told,not just the over priced ceremonies and no talk of what happens in the “happily ever after”.
Someone should do a sequel to all the fairy tales, what goes into making a union “happily ever after ” just whisking her off into the horizon doesn’t help me and my kind much. I’m quite interested in the play by play of this perpetual happiness.
Am sure a kiss from my true love will serve for a while but once the effects of the tumbling economy sets in and the need to look cool and chic then add pressure to be happy ever after,no way a kiss holds everything together.
Keeping each other is a daily commitment, don’t look at those on the streets holding hands, while behind closed doors hand holding turns to fist fights. Don’t admire those sharing a spoon at the restaurant for being too in love. Perhaps he is just on too short a leash and secretly dreams of jumming the fork down her throat. Appearances decieve, clothes and a smile hide wonders untold but sometimes…. Every now and then you meet the one couple that redeems the faith in most.
The one couple that stuck by each other, groomed and built something noticeable, something worthwhile and like everything else under the sun, no good deed goes unpunished. They took the hits and the low blows, went through it as coal and emerged as diamonds only to face prying eyes and itchy fingers of the lazy,who don’t want to put in the work but look forward to the perks.
So again, what entails happily ever after?
Enjoying the fruits of your labour together or sharing with whatever other title itchy fingers hold. Acting like it’s acceptable because it’s now common.
No, keep your hands of my art. If they took the time to customize each other to fit each other, there is absolutely no room for a downgrade. Find your own, build your own or embrace the solitude and happiness of keeping a bunch of cats.
To those diligently waiting on their “Once upon a time…. ” keep in mind the forest has wolves and the lady giving you directions might just be your downfall. It’s a journey, one that is worth it with the right partner. At the finish line, be sure to be armed appropriately to guard your “happily ever after “.

  1. I believe whole heartedly in love and the happily ever after. Not because of too many Disney Princess flicks (although you’d be forgiven for thinking it), but because of the hard work of surviving the ups and downs. No marriage is ever perfect, that would be downright boring! Great post! 🙂 – Jill
