Fairies zip across the screen. Pixie dust streams from their toes and their wings shine like glittery crystals. The story is simple; fight for what you believe in, be kind, stay true to your heart, love conquers all.
As an only child, born into a lonely household, I spent hours by myself. I created vast worlds around me; worlds to lose myself in. I embraced all things magical. I’d make stories up in my head even when I was the only one who’d hear my words. Characters, new worlds, magic spells and story lines would imagine myself flying through the fairy floss clouds to places full of waterfalls and magical creatures. I always wished on stars, looked for the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and I most definitely believed in Santa. Somewhere in my heart I still do.
My imagination has provided much comfort in my life. When at times I could be consumed with bitterness or anger or sadness, I would instead fill my being with secret stories and the power of believing in fairies. Imagination is free, it encourages inquisitiveness that dreams can come true.. I’d imagine a secret passage behind my closet door that leads to a magical land, much like the world awaiting the children at The Faraway Tree.
She sat staring at the screen listening to the sparkly music. Her eyes glistened. She too was lost in her past, reliving a time like yesterday when she was a young girl, with a world of possibility ahead of her. Time goes so fast.
All of my life I have believed in Angels but have I ever seen one? No I haven’t. The same belief goes with Fairies. I can sense their energy in the world around me. One of the biggest things I have learned in my life is just because one person believes one way and another person believes another way, it does not mean either is wrong or right, but it is our own individuality that allows us to believe the way that is right for us.
As children our innocence and purity allows us to believe in things and as an adult, you are swayed to view things through eyes that are no longer innocent and pure, and the truth is Life does not have to be filled doom and gloom! I am an 18-year old girl who has to keep her sanity in check at all times. But yes, I believe in Faeries and some will view it as my elevator not going all the way to the top but that’s just the way it is.
Now tell me, do you believe in fairies?
P.S. You guys can read a brief introduction about Dark Fairies HERE. It’s one of the projects I’m working on Thank you!
