Hey Cinderella, Think You Need A Fairy Godmother?
Tracey Jackson to the rescue! Harvey introduces a book EVERY woman – no matter what her age – should read.
Some day my Prince will come … Some day I’ll find my true love … Ah! Walt Disney! When I was a little Cyber Main Gay boy I dreamed, just as many of you have, about being the Princess where all my dreams would come true. But which Princess?
Snow White? Fabulous porcelain complexion and shiny smooth hair, but she had to take care and clean up after seven men? Yeah, that would be a no! Taking care of one man is enough work! Sleeping Beauty? She does get plenty of beauty sleep, but I’m claustrophobic and can’t imagine being caged under glass! Rapunzel? Unbelievable hair, but the cost of conditioning that glamorous mane seems cost prohibitive. Cinderella? She gets fabulous glass slippers, an invitation the biggest celebrity ball of the year, and a Fairy Godmother with a designer retail wielding magic wand at her disposal. Hmmm? She does have to sweep a few chimneys, but everything comes with a price in this life. I can handle that! Yep! Cinderella it is!
Let’s delve into the “Cinderella” syndrome a little deeper. The glass slippers are fabulous, but glass is probably only good for two fashion seasons at the most. Plus they’re breakable so I can only wear them on special occasions. Prince Charming? He is a man, and could turn out to be an alcoholic with the Mother Queen from hell! The carriage does turn into a pumpkin at midnight, which is inconvenient because most parties don’t really get going until 1:00 a.m..
The best Cinderella fringe benefit is a Fairy Godmother to help with advice and solutions to plan a fabulous life and miss some of life’s pitfalls. I wish that I had a Fairy Godmother in my 20s with a crystal ball to help me plan my entire life – not just my 20s and 30s. There are so many things happened to me that I wasn’t prepared for. Is there such a thing as “forever”? Maybe. But that hasn’t been my experience or the experience of my girlfriends who seem to be dodging curveballs at every age.
What to do?
Luckily for me I found a Fairy Godmother to help me plan today. Meet Tracey Jackson, author of Between A Rock and a Hot Place – Why 50 is Not the New 30. I don’t care how old you are. If you are 20 you need this book! It’s our crystal ball into the future! Get it!
