Expectations and Reality in Two Years

What I thought would happen to me while dealing with Disney Princesses for two years:

Expectation:

Animals would talk to me and follow me around. – This is NOT the case. I do talk to animals, but they do not talk back. Though, one could argue, my dog, Pippin is good at expressing snark.

Reality:

This is NOT the case. I do talk to animals, but they do not talk back. Though, one could argue, my dog, Pippin is good at expressing snark.

Expectation:

My hair would become forever manageable.

Reality:

Just, no.

Expectation:

I would gain a magical singing voice.

Reality:

You get the picture…

Expectation:

My villain would be dramatically defeated.

Reality:

Depression isn’t a tangible villain, and I forgot about that. I still cry and all that comes with it every once in awhile.

Things that have happened:

  • I am less photo shy and more confident (part of the purpose of the photos are for conquering confidence).
  • I still expect animals to talk to me and follow me around.
  • I have come to understand myself more.
  • My villain isn’t a scary as it used to be.
  • I have a lot more skirts and dresses in my wardrobe.

And there is so much more to come!
