Show Notes

Who doesn’t love Fairy Tales?

Today Terry Hershey and I will engage in yet another very impromptu discussion. This time we plan to dive into the, may I say, treacherous waters of Fairy Tail.

As kids, so many of us were “Walt Disneyed” with challenging and happy-ending Fairy Tales, which offered hope for overcoming the hardships and trials that come with real life. And the messages from Fairy Tales continue to influence the way so many of us project and plan our futures.

But not all Fairy Tails ended the way Walt Disney Productions portrayed them did they? Cinderella, Snow White and The Little Mermaid originally had rather grim endings. And speaking of grim, just think of the Brothers Grimm tales. In fact, the fairy tales written by the Grimm brothers were not even intended for children… the stories were indeed quite “adult."

But today we are still, in our most optimistic moments, prone to compose stories of a particularly hopeful future. While I, personally, think that is a good thing to do, but the question arises, “Are personal fairy tales helpful?”

Let’s see what comes up in my lively conversation with Terry Hershey.
