‘And they lived Happily Until’

Almost all fairy tales end with the beautiful sentence “And they lived happily ever after’. Many romantic movies used to show the lead actor and actress holding hands and walking towards the dusk.  I think, ‘Happily ever after’ means another way of telling the audience or reader that there is nothing more to the story and you all can get back to your work/life. 🙂

Based on my experience, there is no happily ever after. I have been facing challenges throughout my life. Once I overcome one, there is one more waiting for me. Anyway, what is life, if it is the same routine day after day?  Problems add spice to my life. Once I overcome a problem, I feel more confident and lively.

Similarly, a story without twists is insipid. If I were to write a story , I would definitely end it with ‘And they lived Happily Until .’ Only in that way I can write a sequel to that story. 🙂


P.S. : In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Happily Ever After.”

  1. Yes. Fairy tales can have a “happily ever after “, but real life never has that. There will always be trials and tribulations …sad times and happy times. No one is spared this.
