Do you think Harry Potter would have ever in his wildest thoughts imagined that one day he would defeat Lord Voldemort? Would he ever have guessed that he would become a wizard, catch a train on platform nine and three quarters, travel in a flying car, go to a school of magic, play a deadly game where he had to look for a flying golden ball and destroy horcruxes to ultimately kill the most famous wizard of all time and probably take his place? More importantly, if asked if he would change his life had he known that these absolutely crazy things were going to happen to him, would he say yes? I don’t think so.
So I suppose that you, dear reader, have had your fair share of problems. But I ask you this- would you change your life? If I gave you the opportunity to have a different life, completely different, would you take it? Despite all your issues and all your problems and the difficulties and all the nonsense and all the tears and fears, don’t you think that somewhere, just maybe, it’s worth it? Right now, in this moment, are you happy? Are you smiling (if not outside maybe on the inside)? If yes then my guess is that you will probably say no. You will probably not take the opportunity. That being said, if, right now, you are sad, then its likely that you’re all like-“ Yeah!! I’ll take it! Where is it? Where is this opportunity? Gotta find Opportunity!”
But you get the point right? If you are sad today it just means there are better days ahead (maybe). At least you can hope. I hope this brought a smile to your face. Because that would be just great! So give me a smile! Come on! A genuine smile, a fake smile, a wicked smile, a scared smile, a smile through tears, a boring old everyday smile or at least a smile for the Harry Potter reference/quote just below this.
‘..Not knowing he was special, not knowing he was famous, not knowing he would be woken in a few hours’ time by Mrs. Dursley’s scream as she opened the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he would spend the next few weeks being prodded and pinched by his cousin Dudley…He couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: ‘To Harry Potter-the boy who lived!’
