Most of us have been taught “the unexpected must be expected” – more than likely at a very young age. A particularly pleasant “lesson form” would be a fairy tale. The word “serendipity” immediately came to mind and for a bit I was swept into the powerful magical impact fairy tales crammed full of amusing adventures seemingly have on each of us. Fairy tales are definitely the imaginative playground of the mind – a form of entertainment that mirrors and teaches many life lessons.
I propose that all humanity needs to get lost in fairy tales, fully engage in the serendipity, and earn advanced degrees in Fairydipity.
Just think, we’d look silly, sound silly, feel silly, and do amazing things way beyond the boundaries our “logical” mind would ever let us do. We would have fun. We would heal the soul a bit. We would create happy days, happy moments, happy relationships, happy connections.
You up for it? If you have children in your life, start reading fairy tales with them. Then start reading and creating fairy tales for yourself. Let your imagination run wild.
It will work. Thirty years ago, who would have imagined I could write this and have it whirl around the entire globe within seconds. Gotcha! There’s your proof – magical thinking works.
