Be Bold

College was a really magical part of my life, but in the 16 months since I've graduated, I think I have found a new kind of magic.  I have made an even better effort since college to try and well, try everything once.  Silly things, ridiculous things, even everyday kind of things that add a little magic and make my heart swell with happiness.

It's going to a party where you don't know anyone except the person that invited you, and making new fun friends.  
It's trying new foods that you'd normally never eat - liver, duck, raw oysters and more.  
It's going to lunch with someone you think you'd have nothing in common with.
It's sleeping as little as possible so you can soak it all in, and then hibernating on the weekend.
It's finding joy in the tiniest moments of the day, whether it's jamming to your favorite song or getting excited over a shorter-than-usual commute.
It's being unafraid to work really, really hard, and being proud of your achievements.
It's appreciating the past, but letting go and moving forward.
It's saying yes when you'd usually say no.


Be adventurous.  Via.

What do you do to add a little magic to your life?
