One day I woke up and decided I wanted to throw a fairy party. And no, not the classic children’s one (which I use to love as a kid!), but I mean an adult one, with champagne, glitter, and fairy lights.
Thankfully, I have attracted unique, quirky and like minded sisters in my life so they jumped at the chance of attending and sharing the fairy-magic.
But other people asked,
And because you are here, you’re most likely wondering the same thing.
In life, significant moments teach us things we did not know or think about previously. Sometimes we find the answers to our questions when we least expect it, or we realize something so important to us in the blink of an eye, that we previously didn’t realize what really matters to us.
As I sit here on a Saturday night, with a glass of red wine, I cannot help but smile. Smile at the fact I am 25, and I’ve learned significant life lessons from throwing a fairy party.
As much as I love attending birthdays, weddings and other special occasions, I also love my inner child, my family, my friends, and all of the things that represent who I am. So I decided to celebrate that. Celebrate me. Celebrate my friends. Celebrate my happiness. You’d be surprised at how many people in your life will help you celebrate that, and those that don’t attend, have their own things to celebrate. And that’s okay, just keep celebrating YOU.
There’s something about drinking a green smoothie, exercising and meditating that is so invigorating. But I also get the same feeling from dressing up, putting some make-up on and meeting my girlfriends for some wine and music. For a lot of girls out there, make-up and fashion is a form of expression just as much as art and writing is. And when we put a little make-up on and dress according to our own style, we get this great feeling like we can take on the world. Whatever kind of women you are, there’s a girly girl inside you somewhere. Bring that girl out to play.
I know you have most likely heard this too many times before, but I’d just like to remind you that you have one life. Don’t sit around miserable. Just like Rihanna says, “People are going to talk, whether you’re doing bad or good”. Don’t miss out on the best moments of your life, because of something you’re worried about, or an excuse that you are making up over and over. Does the thought of it make you scared of what people might think? Nervous about the outcome? Do it anyway. Have fun. Be spontaneous. Walk the path unknown; you might find yourself. Life is too short.
“I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless”- James Broughton. He is so right. Your inner child is your true self. Your original self. There are some people in life that you will meet, and since day one, they have always been themselves, since the earliest ages. But for the rest of us, we have chosen to put our inner child to sleep, whether it was because of a traumatic experience, or to conform with our modern world’s standards. Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be? Find that person again. Embrace that person.
This quote said by Lynn Holland says it all: “Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature”.
Magic is all around us, inside us and abundant in others. I’m not talking about the rich person sitting in their mansion kind of magic, I’m talking about the magic that money can’t buy; moments, laughter, connectivity and inner love. Make the most of that magic. Start a blog. Write a book. Sing. Help those in need. Look at the stars. Watch the sunrise. Fight for a good cause. Love what you already have, share it, celebrate it.
I dare you to do something in your life, that doesn’t really make much sense, but you have the best feeling about it regardless of how crazy it sounds. You might learn your own life lessons.
