“And will I tell you that these three lived happily ever after?
I will not, for no one ever does.
But there was happiness. And they did live.”
~ Stephen King, The Dark Tower

Thirty-one days. Not quite thirty-one posts. But lots of great conversations about the fairy tales we’ve written for our lives, read over and over as we fall asleep at night, and held up as the measuring stick for every relationship and situation we encounter over the years.

We’ve talked about homes, families, marriages, parenting and more. We’ve talked about self-image and the kind of girls we wish we were.

And now? Now it’s time we put an end to it.

{And I don’t just mean this trying-to-write-every-day series, though I’m not going to lie. I’m a tiny bit relieved to go back to three or four posts a week!}

It’s time to stop writing fantastic stories that only lead to disappointment. It’s time to put down those poison pens, toss our volumes of fairy tales in the trash, and get on with our REAL lives.

As we move on from this series, I hope to talk more about how we can get over our ideas of a perfect life and get on with our actual – and amazing – lives.

Who’s with me?

P.S. Two of my favorite 31 Days series that you might love, too: 31 Days to a Contented Heart by Sarah Writes and 31 Days to a Happier You by Holley Gerth.
