“We do not need magic to change the world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.” J.K. Rowling
This quote is from her 2008 Harvard commencement speech,’The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination’.
I wonder sometimes if we’re put in people’s lives to be the light that shows them their own particular magic. To show them the power to imagine better is already within.
Surely there are people who’ve come into, and some who’ve come and gone again from my life that provided that light for me.
I may have even learned how to do it for myself.
I know that I’ve been that someone for people in my life. It is an honor without the fear of overwhelming responsibility. Because you see, being the light that shows someone their own magic, is simply being yourself. You’re not in charge of that other person’s well being. That’s their responsibility. You just be you and let your light shine.
Love is light. So by simply loving someone, you light the undiscovered parts of them, where they find the power to imagine better for themselves and the world around them.
What better magic could there be?
Profound, insightful, loving, intelligent, and magical. Kudos Robynbird ❤ ❤ ❤
