So without further ado, I give you just one of my many favorite lines from Harry Potter...
*no clue where this graphic came from - found it on the black hole of Tumblr
Why do I love it? Because it's so basic and so true, but also something we forget so easily. It's easy to get caught up in negativity, the horror that does exist in this world, the "woe is me's" and the temptation to take ourselves too damn seriously. And some things should be taken seriously, of course, but I think it's really important to remember that light is just one switch away (or one flick of the wand, if you will), and though that switch may be different for everyone, it exists and we simply have to find out what that means for us. Don't stay in a place of negativity or darkness, because why exist in the dark when you can exist in the light? It seems to me that most often that has to do with one or all of three things: your attitude, what you fill your time with, and who you surround yourself with.
That's what this quote means to me. Share your favorites in the linkup below, and have a great Saturday. :)
