30 Day Geek Out Challenge: Day 22

I love a good quote, especially from my favorite geeky things. And for today’s 30 Day Geek Out Challenge question, I am sharing my number one favorite quote.

Just as a reminder, the 30 Day Geek Out Challenge is all about what makes you geeky, from fandoms to hobbies, favorite characters and more. I’m going to do this challenge along with my regular schedule of posts, so there will be tons of content from me this month! Thanks to Megan at A Geeky Gal for creating this!

Today’s question is: Favorite fandom quote?


Of all the quotes Dumbledore has said, this has become my favorite. It is a good reminder to focus on the life you are living versus the one you make up in your head. Having dreams is good, but if they don’t become reality and you dwell in them, you are no better off.

I say this quote all of the time and have changed it in ways to be fitting in various situations. One alteration I’ve done is “It does not do to dwell on demons and forget to live.” I connect this quote to mental health a lot, thus the demons adjustment. Focusing on the negatives and the lies your mental health demons brew up is just as bad as dwelling in dreams of what you wish your life was like. Don’t let your mind make you stop living.
