Ever wondered..Fairy godmother has transparent wings, a tiara and a flowy gown, while Godfather is Marlon Brando.
“abracadabra” and sprinkling of fairy dust, magically I would transform from size, XXL, to zero, well, there is seems to be a mild shift somewhere, no more these people pop up.
The differences and comparisons between real and fairy tales are so fascinating, because we are raised as little girls to think we’re princess and the prince charming is going to sweep us off our feet. But there were preconditions. Have you ever heard of fairy godmothers, who spent time helping poor and humble milk maid, who was destined to die even poorer and humbler? Nah1 not really, even fairy godmothers are selective in selecting the destiny’s child.
There was this time, when I expected fairy godmothers were nice and made me feel nice about myself. … I then reckoned that i was confusing fairy god mothers with sales clerks. Like I said before, no fairy god mother ever spends time, on thea humble milk maid who is destined to die even poorer and humbler.
Somewhere the search for transformational leaders, and motivational speakers is very similar to the quest for the fairy god mother, a person, a channel who will tap the wand three times, say “clippity, clippity clap” and turn you into this beautiful princess, the world would then be fine, the right job with the golden pumpkin carriage and the glass slippers .. on the feet, oh! Yes the wicked witch and the dragons miraculously wander.
Don’t forget the Prince Charming and he is everything you ever wanted, in a fairy tale he is very easy to spot. But in real life, he is kind of difficult to spot, the bad guy, the one who wears the black cape in the fairy tale has miraculously transformed to a funny guy, who makes you laugh and he also has perfect hair, and ladies welcome to the world of tangled relations and complex ties.
“But sarcasm aside, fairy tales ever since the beginning of recorded time and maybe even before that are means to conquer the terrors of mankind through metaphors and the channel of transformation is the fairy god mothers.
Funnily happiness, or success is like those palaces in the fairy tales whose gates are guarded by dragons, we must fight in order to conquer it. this is not very difficult to understand, nothing has really changed since Red Riding Hood, we are still frightened by the wolf, only the wolf is different or to be precise lifted shape.
