Did you ever dream of being something spectacular as a child? Maybe you dreamed of being a beautiful princess inside her grand castle, being adored by her loyal subjects, not to mention her rainbow unicorn.
Maybe you would prance around the living room, pink dress flowing, mother's heels clicking, and sputtering beneath your feet, the floors creaking with years of wear.
Did you ever have this kind of fantasy when you were growing up? While you never really lose the idea of the fairytale, as the little pink dress gets too small, and you grow into your mother's heels, no longer sputtering beneath your feet, you may lose the faith that somewhere, someplace, there is a fairytale awaiting your arrival.
But, did you know, that if you look closely, you will find the fairytale right within you.
In life, most spend far too much time dreaming of what would be.
While it's perfectly perfect to dream, did you know that dreaming from right where you at this moment are is all part of your motivational development? It is the groundwork of success.
Recognize the miracle within you and begin to accept that you are a source of love, light and an energy force.
That will make all the difference in your happily ever after.
You must bloom where you are planted, all while growing onward and upward.
Living well from where you are will help you get to where you are going.
In fact, if you were to look around right this very moment, you might just find that living an extraordinary life is closer than you think.
What if you chose to see everything around you in a new light? Have you ever had an old piece of furniture that you thought of throwing away? A friend of mine (I'll call her Alice) once had a very old dresser.
She gave it away, because it was all banged up.
She really wanted an amazing dresser, but all she had ever owned been hand-me-downs.
Well, one day, Alice and her husband were visiting an antique store and saw a dresser, much like their old one, sitting right there in the window.
With a little curiosity in her voice, Alice said, "That's odd.
Someone told me this model was handcrafted.
" And, as she looked inside the first drawer just to be sure she wasn't indeed nuts, there it was - the same chip on the inside of the drawer that always made runs in her pantyhose.
Long story short, that day, Alice and her spouse left with the same dresser.
The one that they had given away for free now cost them a hefty 2000 dollars.
If they would have only noticed the potential in the thing they had, they could have saved themselves a whole lot of trouble...
Perhaps, like Alice, you are looking at a tattered past and saying, "I am not good enough.
" Maybe you have begun to believe that you ARE your past.
However, the good news is, no matter what you have been through, no matter where you are right this very moment; you already have all that you need to make your fairytale come true.
You were created that way.
This lifetime is an opportunity given to you to express your true self and to complete a specific purpose.
You are your own Fairy Godmother.
The answer lies within you.
You are the co-creator of your life.
When you take a look at the things you have, whether it is your family, your work, your home, or your own talents, don't look at them with mediocrity.
Trust in your heart that there is a fairytale life awaiting you, and trust that it is in this very moment when it comes to pass.
Everything you have been given, every good thing, is a gift and part of the bigger picture.
God created you for nothing short of success, wonder, and an awe-inspiring life.
This sort of acceptance, this kind of motivational development, only comes when you choose to remain positive, become practical, and look to the Source of Wealth in You.
When you are certain and choose to focus on the positive, definite things will begin to happen in your life.
Remember, when your thoughts are full of certainty, it will cause you to react with certainty.
All of it will automatically transfer over to the actions that you take, the way you behave, and it will attract the same - certainty.
Today, I urge you to take another look at your life.
Is it everything that you dreamed, or does it fall short? Believe it or not, where you are has a big part in where you are going.
It's your beginning of your happily ever after! And every good fairytale beings with "Once upon a time...
