This is the beginning of a story. A beginning that keeps happening over and over again. Recently I’ve been watching this show and it inspires me. The most important question that is asked thoroughout the show is whether to believe or not. The main character is a good one but has the hardest time believing. Some people have an easier time believing than others. I know a true believer at heart, Isabel. Isabel believes without asking herself how or why. The reason why she doesn’t have a problem believing is because she knows. She knows there’s no other way to live. Because of this, I can honestly say she’s the happiest most optimistic person I know. I also know a non believer, he is a good person but doesn’t know how to be happy. That’s the point. We insist on asking ourselves whether we’re believers or not forgetting that our happiness seems to be on the line. Life will have obstacles for anyone but how we deal with these obstacles matter most and what will determine the quality of our lives will be how much we believe.
This is the beginning of a story, whichever one you choose. The non believers can be good but they cannot seem to truly be happy. The believers are good but above all, happy. It seems like a no brainer decision and it should be. We should believe in life, God, friends, magic, fantasy and anything that makes us happy because that is what matters most.
Start your story today and be the character you want to be, not the one you think you should be or are doomed to be. Yes, we’ve made mistakes and we think it might be too late sometimes, but it isn’t. Once Upon A Time is today and we always have the choice to believe and have our stories be whatever we believe they can be.
