“My care is like my shadow in the sun,
Follows me flying, flies when I pursue it,
Stands and lies by me, doth what I have done.”
― Queen Elizabeth I
Every girl dreams of being a queen J and that’s how I always dreamt of it.
Alas I never got the chance to be a queen in a play, but this a simple incident which is reminder that you can be your own queen.
I was a little girl than, and I went to my brother’s school for his Annual Day function. I saw a beautiful girl dressed in all white playing the character of famous Snow white. Down in my heart I skipped a beat seeing her beauty and dress, but I knew I won’t be able to fit in her shoes and act like her.
When I returned home, I became very upset, seeing my face my mother asked me what the reason behind my state.
Me (puppy face): Mom, why I can’t be like her.
Mom (questioning): Like Whom??
Me (shrugging) : Like that snowwhite girl, she was all pretty, and her dress was so beautiful.
Mom (smiling) : Do you really want to be like her, didn’t you see how her life was ? How her own mother and sister never loved her and how she needed a magic to change her life.
This made me realize how beautiful someone may look like, but the really beauty is how you lead your life.
Mom(held my face in her hands): And darling you are my Queen Elizabeth J
And my mom from then on always called me queen Elizabeth 😉 for teasing me when I behaved like one 😀
This my attempt for the Seventeenth day of the A-Z Challenge.
