I was watching Sleeping Beauty the other night with my kids, and started laughing out loud when I saw the classic ‘finished dress’ scene. Not because the dress was such an epic failure, but because it reminded me so much of the ‘Nailed it’ memes we see on the internet. The Fairy Godmothers were the original Pinterest Fails. They totally NAILED IT.
Fairy Godmothers Nailed It.
In all seriousness…yes, these ‘Nailed It’ memes make us giggle when we see them. But like the Fairy Godmothers, they tried to achieve and do something that they had a vision for. In fact, Flora didn’t even see a failure when she looked at her finished handsewn creation. She was proud…until Merryweather pointed out that it was awful.
So let’s give a hand to the people who actually get off the couch and TRY. After all, we don’t all have magic wands at our disposal :).
Thanks Fairy Godmothers, for NAILING IT. And making it ok for the rest of us to do so as well :).
