Day Five: Hook ’Em with a Quote

quote.PNG

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” 

 

This quote taken from the novel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling and spoken by Michael Gambon in his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in the movie adaptation will forever be one of my most favourite quotes.

true story Isn’t it though? In an article which I wrote for The Nerd Daily ‘The Reality of Fiction‘, I spoke about how important fiction is to each and every one of us. The Reality of Fiction looks also at how the stories we read and watch on screen influence our reality and our lives. The do this because despite how many of them are filled with fantastical elements that do not exist in this world we live in… they’re real. To us, the stories we enjoy are real and therefore, as Dumbledore states is true.

My reality, however, will forever remain a mix of the world which I live in and those which I wish I could. What can I say, I’m a strong believer of fantasy being the best type of reality.

Day Three: One-Word Inspiration

ABUNDANCE

 

Defined, abundance means ‘a very large quantity of something’. I’ve been putting a lot of thought into the term abundance and of how it can be both a good and a bad thing. The example I’m picking for today is: an abundance of money. Does money really bring one happiness? This is a question which I have always debated with myself.

On one hand a large amount of money being obtained to one individual could provide them with happiness by use of allowing them to buy things which make them happy – now if I was to have a large amount of money I know for a fact that the majority of that money would be spent on books which would bring me money.

On the other hand, those who have money in large amounts are often portrayed as being unhappy underneath the ‘act’ which they put on for others. This is understandable as money isn’t everything and happiness can be achieved in many ways, such as those who are less well off but have the support and unconditional love of their families – just look at the fictional family of the Weasleys within the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling for example!

What do YOU think of the term ‘abundance’? Let me know in the comments and feel free to relate the term to other things, not just money.
