For a bookworm like me, to pick a favourite book would be hard. But if I had to pick one it would be by her. So it is no surprise that I start this challenge with a quote from J K Rowling. While her books are abounding in some splendid quotes, the one I pick is not from the book.
““We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.”
How many times have we wished to be able to go to Hogwarts, and live in the magical world that J K Rowling created? I know I have. I have longed for change so much, waiting and hoping that something eventually gives. Somewhere something magical happens and my life is transformed.
But soon I realised that the only person who can affect my life is me, I am the only one with the power to create magic for me. I rue all the time I have wasted waiting for the magic to happen, rather than creating the revolution. The answers we desire, the uprising we stir, the justification we seek, the strength we need, the vindication we demand, the acknowledgement we crave, all has to begin from within.
We are nothing if we do not recognise our own power, that is the real magic we seek.
