"She was a princess worth waiting for."
- Disney's "Tangled"
Perhaps it's the fact I grew up watching fairy tales from only a princess' point of view that I was pleasantly taken aback by the line that a princess would be worth waiting for vs. a "Prince Charming." I believe many ladies out there have lived their lives based on the hope of finding their prince. But to flip that concept around that she herself is also worth the wait is quite empowering. In the sense that maybe, just maybe there's a guy out there whose idea of a perfect princess is exactly her. Just... the way she is with all her perfect imperfections. And that he's been waiting his entire life for that day he finally gets to meet her.
Just a thought.
