You have probably heard people say “Life isn’t a fairy tale” or maybe something along the lines of “Fairy tales aren’t real”, but in reality, we are all the authors of our own stories, and everyone’s life can be a fairy tale in their own way.
This, of course, looks different for everyone, and someone’s version of a “fairy tale” may look different than another, but that’s okay! That is what makes life, well life. We are all unique in our own way, and all of our stories (or fairy tales) are different.
If you’re here looking for ideas on how to create your fairy tale dream life, remember it all starts with you and what makes you happy. The ideas I list below on how to make your life a fairy tale are what I think make my life more enchanting. We are all different, remember that!
We can all do simple things in our lives that make life seem more like a fairy tale.
I hope you stick around for this short read on how to make your life a fairy tale. I had fun writing it and I hope you have fun reading it!
How To Make Your Life A Fairy Tale
Dress Up Even If It’s For No Reason
So, this is a little bit of an obvious one, but we can all probably agree when we dress up nicely, we feel good about ourselves! Buy crowns or dresses you wouldn’t normally wear every day and wear them to the grocery store, at family gatherings, or just in your own house!
Many people probably think, now why would I want to go out to the grocery store in a ball gown? Because why the heck not? Life is short, if you want to dress up like the main character for a day, then by all means do it!
Dressing up like a princess or a magical character is fun, and it’s good to enjoy life by doing simple things like this. You will definitely be creating your own fairy tale if you dress the part!
I recently bought this crown from Amazon and I LOVE IT! It was inexpensive and when I’m not wearing it, it’s a great decor piece.
Treat & Take Care of Yourself
We have one life and one body. There is only one of us in the world. It’s important to take care of yourself because if we don’t, we may start feeling sluggish and unhappy.
If you want to feel magical every day, spend an extra five minutes on yourself if it will make you happy! Maybe you’ve been eyeing a book you want to read or want to purchase something for yourself that you normally wouldn’t. Just do it! We seem to sometimes get into this mindset that we can’t treat ourselves, and if we can, we definitely should! Remember, this is our story, so if you want to buy yourself jewelry for no reason, go do it!
Go Outside And Enjoy The Natural World
Simple… but most people forget to enjoy nature and the natural world. In most fairy tales, nature is a big part of the story. Magical forests, talking animals, or just exploring. Going for a walk in the woods or running through a sunflower field can instantly transport you to a fairy tale. If you’re feeling like you need a boost of happiness, go outside and get lost in nature. Even just taking a walk around the neighborhood and getting fresh air can do some great things for you.
Make A Fancy Meal & Eat Under Candlelight
A common theme I’m mentioning here is that we are always on the go and sometimes forget to take our time and relax. Dinner time can sometimes be very rushed, at least for me. Make a fancy meal for yourself or for many and decorate with illuminating candles. Enjoy the simple things, the company, and life.
Be Grateful & Reflect On What You Have
In fairy tales, there is usually a lesson to be learned or a reflection of one’s life as the story goes on. You may sometimes think your life is horrible or you wish you were someone else. We always have to be grateful and reflect on where we are today. Everyone starts somewhere, even characters in a fairy tale dream life. When you start to realize the amazing things that are in your life, you may realize your life is already a fairy tale.
Read And Get Lost In A Book
Books are great escapes into another world. Reading is great for the mind and when I read more often I tend to be happier. Make sure you are setting time aside for yourself. Rolling up in a warm blanket and reading your favorite book is a great thing to do for yourself!
Life is what you make it, so make it a fairy tale!
To live in a fairy tale, you have to live in the moment. Sometimes this means slowing down and just enjoying what you have and where you are in this time and place of your life.
I feel we as a society are so rushed and expected to always be on the go, that most forget to actually stop and literally smell the roses.
Never stop believing in magic.
