This Ain’t No Cinderella Story

My brothers and sisters, I implore you to look within.

There is no fairy godmother and your pumpkins will not be magically transformed into carriages. The only thing that is real in this story are the evil stepsisters and your power to decide whether or not you will be defined by them.

Forget about princes and glass slippers. Forget about magical mice and enchanted elves. You are not a character in a fairy tale. You are the author of your own narrative. You don’t need a wand. You hold the pen.

This ain’t no Cinderella story. This is your story. And if you don’t tell it for yourself, someone else will do it for you. Exercise your power and start writing.
