Don’t worry, you’re just as sane as I am.
As soon as I read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, I fell in love with Luna Lovegood. I mean, what’s not to love about her? I had always felt a little different than most people (mostly because I was a big nerd!). I connected with Luna. She was me! In fact, even according to some, we share the same Myers-Briggs type (INFP for those of you wondering). I loved getting to meet a character who was different, dreamy, and awkward. But a character who embraced that about herself and didn’t try to conform to the majority.
So happy birthday to the one who taught me to embrace every part of me. The one who taught me that it’s okay to be smart. The one who taught me that the things we lose have a way of coming back to us, if not always in the way we expect. Happy birthday to the girl who helped me realize that it’s okay to love dessert. And most importantly, the one who taught me that being kind is the most important thing anyone can be.
PS- I’ve gathered up a few of my favorite Luna-inspired items on the Etsy! Check them out!
