365 Writing Prompts: Happily ever after
“And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?
Yes I thought about this line as I was writing it. If I had asked my mother when she was alive, what makes a person happy? She’d say happiness is having loving siblings, spouse, and children if you are at that stage. Above all contentment is the key to happiness .
It reminds me of William Shakespeare’s quote: Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown- Henry 1V, part 2.
Since I have no crown i.e subjects to deal with, I’m not uneasy, I have good friends, sincere neighbors, loving daughter and one awesome sibling. These are enough for me to say: I am happy. What more can I want?
