The Magic That Is Harry Potter 

It’s been 20 years since Harry Potter first walked into our lives, but it still continues to work it’s magic on me, every single time, always! 😊

I am currently in the middle of my nth Harry Potter Marathon and I’m still as awed as I was when I first read it.

They say that Harry Potter walked into Joanne Kathleen Rowling’s mind when she was struck on a train in 1990. She spent the next five years constructing the plot for the seven books.

Interestingly, nobody wanted to publish the first book as they didn’t believe “magic” to be a substantial topic. Finally, Bloomsbury agreed to publish the series and on June 26, 1997 the first book was published.

And after that, we were all surrounded by magic 😍

I decided  to do a quick Harry Potter tag, the questions for which I nicked over from the net😜

Favourite book: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 🔥

This is my copy of the book which was a present from Dad on my 16th birthday 😊

8 things I learnt from the past:

1. People won’t do for u as u do for them.

2. Dont get ur hopes up. Better to be surprised pleasantly than to be disappointed.

3. If it’s meant to happen, it will.

4. No use stressing over things not in ur control

5. Not everyone is actually interested in ur  well being. Some are just leeching on for gossip.

6. Do not let one bad incident destroy all the good that u have known the person for.

7. Not everyone will stay forever with you. Learn to let go.

8. Just a sorry isnt enough. Change ur behavior too. U can’t just keep repeating the same thing and come back and say sorry.
