Fairy tales often involve forests. In these thick, dark places it is easy to lose heart, easy to lose hope, easy to forget your way. Life often involves forests too.
There are times in life when self-doubt, fear, grief, confusion seem to hover over us like heavy, unfriendly branches.
Do you ever feel like your forests might be your ever after?
Don’t forget the fairy tale. Stories have power, like magic. We remember the fairy tale and we remember the forest is never the end.
I believe that the forests as well as the fields are what we we must walk through if we are truly to become like the heroes we read about in stories. And…
“Perhaps it was just as well that Ella’s stepsisters were cruel, for had she not run to the forest she might have never met the Prince.”
Keep going. We got this.
