I grew up on Disney movies. Princesses and dragons and the prince that always saves them.When I was little I thought Cinderella really did live in the castle at Disney World. Hopelessly I believe everyone can still have their own fairytale.
When you can't control what is happening around you, challenge yourself to control the way in which you respond. That is where your true power lies. You can always control how you respond and how you view the situation.
