30 Day Book Challenge: Day 25

picsart_1375358545585Good evening fellow readers! So of course I found a new challenge to participate in the hopes of proving myself better than the last. I picked up this challenge from The Chronicles of Radiya and very much look forward to 30 consecutive (hopefully, gulp) days of blogging.

Day 25: A Character You Can Relate to the Most

I struggled with today’s challenge for a while because I just couldn’t picture a character that I could relate too in the slightest. I wish I could say the likes of Hermione or Katniss, but I can’t really say that without giggling at the absurdity of it. To even compare myself to great characters like that makes me feel foolish. After some thought though I was able to think of one character who I could relate too, Lucy Pevensie from the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

Even comparing myself to the noble Lucy makes me feel vain as if I was trying to be high and mighty. So I’m putting a disclaimer on today’s challenge: I don’t think I’m as noble or brave as Lucy (and I’m not fishing for compliments here I’m just simply saying I’m human). However, there is apart of Lucy that I can easily relate too and that is her willingness to believe.

I was a child that grew up believing in magic. Granted much of that came from books, but I think even if I had never read there would still be a part of me that believed in more than reality. Magic existed, we just couldn’t see it or if we did we would rationalize it. I felt like I the only one in on the secret.

Even as I grew older there was a part of me that clung on to believing. Sure I realized that a fat man in a red suit probably wasn’t the one leaving my presents but I did believe that magic played a role during Christmas time. It filled people with hope. That’s what I consider magic nowadays. It’s those moments when you’re most inspired or filled with hope that are the magical ones. You suddenly believe that you can do great things, conquer any obstacle. Call me crazy but to me, that’s magic.

Lucy was the same way. She accepted the unbelievable instantly without any hesitation. Even when others filled her with doubt and second guessed her words, she knew what she saw, she knew there was a magical world called Narnia. That’s me. No one would be able to talk me out of what I saw, what I believed. Well, actually no one would have the chance too because I would have never left the wardrobe. 🙂 So, Lucy Pevensie is my final answer.

What character do you relate to the most? Share it below and happy reading!

  1. Awwh, I love your reasons for picking Lucy! Believing is such a wonderful trait, whether it’s believing in people, a god, other planets or magic. It’s great because with it comes hope. 🙂 I must coyly admit that Lucy really budded me in both the few Narnia books I read and in the films, but I love everything you have described her as standing for! I actually think it might be the writing of C.S. Lewis in general because I didn’t overly get on with any of the characters or the series, except Aslan! I loved the concept but something about it didn’t make me warm to it…odd.

  2. How is it that you so often produce posts which make me a little teary?! LOL Truly, I love this choice, and I love this character! Lucy is wonderful and sometimes I just wanna hustle on over to Narnia and slap those Pevensie siblings silly – Lucy was right about everything the first time, so why didn’t they listen to her all the time?! Grrrrr. I love the magic of believing, and the magic you described – that sense of hope. That really is magic. Oh and for the record, I totally think you’re like Lucy in the other ways as well – I think you’re braver than you realize and just as noble!
    Lovely post today Lindsey! 😀

    • Your comments never fail to make me smile, you are WAY to nice for your own good. I know! I couldn’t believe that the other siblings wouldn’t believe her later in the books, I mean how many times is it going to take?

      I’m glad you enjoyed it and thank you for the kind words, I appreciate them! Thanks for reading! 🙂
