From Wikipedia I learned-
Cinderella (French: Cendrillon, German: Aschenputtel, Spanish: Cenicienta, Italian: Cenerentola, Portuguese:Cinderela), is a well-known classic folk tale embodying a myth-element of unjust oppression/triumphant reward. Thousands of variants are known throughout the world. The title character is a young woman living in unfortunate circumstances which suddenly change to remarkable fortune. The word "cinderella" has, by analogy, come to mean one whose attributes are unrecognised, or one who unexpectedly achieves recognition or success after a period of obscurity and neglect. The still-popular story of Cinderella continues to influence popular culture internationally, lending plot elements, allusions, and tropes to a wide variety of media.In another way many of us who sell our heartfelt, handcrafted creations are hoping for a Cinderella moment. That would be when your work is recognized and appreciated in a big way. Our feelings are fragile and we patiently work and wait for the day when it all happens and our work is suddenly known and sought after.
I hope it comes my way soon because it is getting hard to work in these glass slippers, :}
