It really was fantastic
If you have been itching to go and see Fantastic Beasts and where to find them
It’s truly fantastic
My favourite bit (don’t worry, no spoilers) was probably Eddie Redmayne
Aka Newt Scamander
Offering his hind quarters to a rhinoceros type magical creature
And completing the first part of the magical mating ritual to entice the rhino back into the magical suitcase
Typing it out makes it sound insane…..!
My other favourite bit
Is when they consume the giggle juice
This movie is set in the great depression in New York
Instead of drowning their sorrows in bootleg liquor
The wizards consumed giggle juice (probably with similar effects to the moonshine)
And this got me thinking
We could all do with a good dose of giggle juice to keep our spirits high
What do you do that makes you happy?
Do you set aside time purely just to do stuff that makes you smile and laugh?
For me its
Walks in the country
And learning to dance
What do you do?
I’d love to know
A while back I figured that with the stresses of modern day life
The obsession with mobile phones
The obsession with comparing to everyone else
And the impact of being busy all the time
I wanted to schedule time to commit to doing things that made me happy
And you know what
As soon as I started doing that
I was a happier, more content person
I was more able to cope with the little things that used to make me crazy
- Traffic jams
- Other people’s ignorance
- Other people’s comments and opinions
Wouldn’t you like to be a little happier?
And have that extra bit of patience for when you really need it?
Do something every week for the sole purpose of making yourself smile
Let me give you a few ideas
- Comedy (stand up, movies, tv shows)
- Relaxing massage
- Roller blading
- Ice skating
….there are endless ideas
Find your happy place
And stay in it for as long as you can
