Being a Prince or Princess

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I just recently read A Little Princess by Francis Hodgson Burnett. My favorite part of the book is when the main character, Sara, has had her life changed drastically from a rich little girl to nothing more then a mistreated and starved servant. She is mistreated horribly by a boarding school mistress and instead of worrying about her misery and breaking down, Sara thinks to herself, "Whatever comes, cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one know it."  Throughout the book, Sara helped those who were around her even if their circumstances were worse off or better than her own. She displayed warmheartedness, love, worked hard and to tried to keep a positive attitude.

If life gets you down it's easy to start letting it change your inside to be more hardened and miserable. It's an even greater achievement if life gets you down and you rise above it. I think all of us has a princess or prince inside of us, even if we're not clothed in riches and gold. In order to let the princess or prince shown, we just need to think about those around us, have a kind heart and have a positive attitude. We might not look the part, but we can certainly act it.
