I believe that we have the opportunity to make every single day of our lives magic. Some days we make that happen, and some days we don’t, but it’s always our choice.
Magic means different things to different people, and the past year or two, I’ve really gotten more interested in things I originally thought were too “new age” or “hippy-dippy”. I’ve found those things to be beneficial in a big way, and I know they sound crazy sometimes. I support you in making your own choices, but I want to encourage you to try things on this list that might even have an inkling of interest in your brain. What’s the worst thing that happens if you try it and it doesn’t work? After all, as Roald Dahl so astutely observed, “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”.
