Have you ever seen something that is completely non-important, and you just knew you had to have it? You want it so desperately, but you know that it’s absolutely not a necessity for one reason or another. It’s either exorbitantly expensive, too large for your current living situation, too loud, too bright.. always too something.
Well, that item for me was the Harry Potter Hogwarts Lego set. I say was because I did myself a solid and bought it.
Branching off of my post yesterday about finding my happy, I did some deep-diving on my end. As someone who never really had “big” things to bring me joy, I’ve had to come to terms with smaller sources. I was struck with inspiration (and reminded, if I’m being honest) when I was helping little one with her Lego sets that she got for Christmas. I had never had the joy of a large-scale Lego set to put together, and I had been feeling pretty envious for the last couple years after watching my husband tackle the Millennium Falcon build and proudly display it atop our nerdy shelving unit.
So now, I anxiously await the shipping notification from Lego, telling me that my newest source of joy is on the way.
And then I’m going to build the shit out of that just like a little kid, lost in the magic once more.
