The Prince and the Princess

Ah, Merry Old England.

Once again they’ve captured the hearts and minds of the world. Not as a military might, but as a dream come true for any girl, with another royal wedding.  I believe,  at one time or another, most of us  fantasized meeting a prince just like in a story book.   I certainly did.  Wasn’t the story of Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, and more told based on this presumption?  Even today our little girls are captured by the whole princess dream.   As the old saying goes,  “The more things change the more they stay the same.”  Time has not diluted this fantasy.  I know my granddaughter cannot get enough of the princess toys and stories.

Cinderella Blue Dress

Remember how the  handsome prince always falls in love with the less than royal girl.  The prince always rides in, on a white horse of course,  and sweeps the girl off her feet, in more ways then one, and they live ‘Happily Ever After”.     What a wonderful ending.  Really?

The last real  prince and princess story that happened in my life time was  prince Charles, who married Diana, a nobody who became a princess overnight.

Oh, the magic of it all.  Magic, does this ring Walt Disney?   I remember watching the event live on TV.  A reality show before it’s time.  I was married myself  when this royal wedding happened, in 1981.  What sticks in my memory bank was her 25- foot long train, which flowed behind her so delicately.  Diana was my first real princess story.
 Kings, Queens, royalty from all over the world attended this  extravaganza.  The press coverage,  the invite list.  Who got snobbed. Who got luckily invited

A true Cinderella coach.Imagine, yes we can only imagine.

This  wedding was real.  A true prince marrying a girl and she would become his princess.

Oh, how happy they will be, ever after.      Well, reality sucks.  The prince and the princess never achieved happy.

Now once again the world awaits, with child like delight, to see a prince marry a girl who will become his  princess.

How will this story end?  No one can say.

But if the new prince and princess hold on to their dreams and not allow reality to enter them, they might just live “Happily Ever After”

Time of the Season, work

Stop Making My Own Work Stress

Alot of work related stress can be avoided.  Like some people, I found myself complaining  about my job or  thinking I didn’t make enough money….really??  Has anyone ever said that they do??  So I remind myself to do my best, discuss and bargain and chances are more money will be in my future.  Feeling good about what I do and about myself,  no matter what.

Sometimes I find myself whinning.or worse, having to listen to someone else moan and groan……….he likes her better than me……..I do all the work around here……..can you imagine  if that were true!!   That’s when I have to stop myself and say why don’t you grow up already. Truth is some people never grow up,  and people are everywhere.  So I remember that  I am part of a team and people rely on me to hold up my end.

When things and office management change and I’m  still not happy……….that’s when I  stop,  take a step back and think  ……hey, maybe it’s me?  There is no reason to think my  department gets no respect…..odds are all the other department feel the same.  Both the right and the  left hand have jobs to do……I wouldn’t want to lose either.

Face it…..we don’t get to pick our boss… so I work the day and then I am very happy go home ……to a place where I am boss!!

I’ve stopped putting dead lines on myself…..because we all know that  alot of it  can wait until tomorrow.  Ive finally  grown to recognize that managers are people too, they may not know everything, but they are dealing with more than I know. I didn’t always think like this,   I wasted so much time feeling bad about this or that. Please don’t waste your time.

 Now,  I wake up each day thanking God I have a job, with full intent of doing my best with joy and not complaining and getting myself into a bad mood.  Somedays it works…..somedays it doesn’t.  One thing for sure, I know that it is my attitude that will greatly determine the way my day will go, so  I pray and  try my best to  be powerful – not pitiful.
