The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Today, I was listening to the audiobook of "A little princess" as I did my chores. I absolutely LOVE that story. A tale written in the early 1900s about a little girl who pretended she was a princess... and in her heart she truly felt like one. Until one day she questioned her own heart and wondered, "what if I'm only a nice person because I've never been through trials? Maybe I'm a horrible person and I just don't know it cause I'm so fortunate..." And from those musings she managed to manifest a great deal of suffering, pain, agony, and injustice... but as her world began to crumble, her little heart became stronger. And she practiced her teachings each and every day (as they were all she had.)

In ragged clothes, tattered stocking and living in a dingy old attic... her Mistress who would beat her taunted her. "We are not in this world to make pretend and believe in beautiful fancies! It's a cold, cruel world out there. And it is up to US to make the better of it. Do you understand?"

"I understand." The little girl replied.

"Good," A cold response from her mistress.

"But I don't believe in it." She innocently remarked, to which her mistress snapped,

"Don't tell me you still fancy yourself a princess?! Good god child, look around you!" She gestured to the dingy smelly old attic in which the young girl presently resided. "Or better yet.." she sneered, "look in the mirror!"

"I am a princess," Sarah persisted. "All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics, even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young.... they're still princesses! All of us."

And from this sturdy heart and strong imagination, she was able to manifest "coincidences" that lead to her victory.

 

I like this book because it takes you into the experience of someone who suffered innumerable amounts of injustices... and yet... although many times she wanted to give up... she displays a raw example on how to keep promises to yourself. And remain loyal. <3

 

I highly recommend this book.

You guys are so wonderful. Thank you for your input.

And yes, David Allen, I believe you are very right about that. When I was a little girl, I would go on all kinds of childhood "adventures" and the risks, ideas, thrilled me. I always ended up just fine, if not more advanced, flexible and confident ... but one day, my worried mother pulled me to the side and told me all the "could have happened"s and "morbid fates" and how miraculous it was that I wasn't (in some way) harmed... and then I started thinking to myself, "Wow, was God keeping me safe whilst I foolishly took his care for granted?!" and the guilt consumed me until I lost all confidence and wondered why a really bad phase in my life entailed.

 

Hmm. You leave me even more reflective now.

I watched the Disney movie for this. I loved when she said all girls are princesses.

I love how she keeps her dignity and strength, even when she reaches the lowest of points... I am inspired by that.

Wow, I think you summed up the whole message when you said " Until one day she questioned her own heart and wondered, "what if I'm only a nice person because I've never been through trials? Maybe I'm a horrible person and I just don't know it cause I'm so fortunate..." And from those musings she managed to manifest a great deal of suffering, pain, agony, and injustice..."

 

How many of "US" have done just that in life? Maybe something happened in our lives and we started to QUESTION ourselves.... and it was the QUESTIONING of ourselves that brought about our pain and suffering.... now we just imagine all the good and get back to feeling good about life and start manifesting our good AGAIN.

 

Thanks for sharing.

"All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics, even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young.... they're still princesses! All of us."
