When you were young, your parents may have read to you bedtime stories of tales from long long ago, of kings and queens from faraway kingdoms, of princesses in their castles waiting for their prince charming. From Snow White to Beauty and the Beast, these stories brought us great delight and sweet dreams. Many of us ladies have probably dreamt of becoming princesses. We improvised our own Cinderella gowns with blankets, our jeweled tiaras with shiny shimmering headbands; we even tried on our mother’s high heels. We acted as daughters of grace and royalty.

As we grow older, we realize that we cannot live in castles and wear elegant gowns to school. We also discover that there is no such thing as a perfect man who best fits the shoes of prince charming. But even if there is prince charming, the ending isn’t always happily-ever-after. We see married couples experiencing marital strife, Hollywood fairy tales ending in divorce. With all these coming into play, our hope of becoming a princess may blur, but it never dies. We still dress up as princesses every time a good opportunity arises. Be it to the prom, on your sweet sixteenth or even on the much awaited wedding day.
And you know what? You need not limit your “Princess Days” on these occasions. Each of us is beautifully and wonderfully made. Don’t be afraid to dress up! The styles of the gowns may change, shoes may fade, but the tiara, the crowning glory of the princess will always be there.
