Have another drink of Green Elixir...?

Have another drink of Green Elixir…?

This is a necklace I bought recently. I call it my “green elixir” necklace because it reminds me of the elixir in Wicked the musical. In fact, the very reason I bought it was to have a reference to my favourite musical that I could wear with me.

Wicked is one of my favourite musicals because of its interesting storyline underlined with strong, thought-provoking themes. It has fantastic musical numbers, ranging from fun to emotional. It has great character development for many characters – Elphaba being my favourite to watch change, grow and realise who she is throughout the story.

My necklace represents my love for Wicked. But it’s also more than that.

My “green elixir” necklace reminds me of everything I saw in Wicked that I want to achieve myself. The unbelievable creativity behind an enjoyable, show-stopping musical that I admired. The boundless energy in its performance that felt like it was fuelling me. And of course, the great depth in its writing, the story that I fell in love with.

In less eloquent wording: I loved it. I really loved it.

So yes, it represents my love for Wicked. But it also represents all the things I learned from it; the feelings I want to create, the energies I want to have and the stories I want to tell. Because I don’t just love something. I love it because it taught me something. I love it because it made me realise things.. and that’s how it captivated my heart.

Perhaps I’m coming off as a little obsessed… but it’s really no different to having something that simply makes you happy. This makes me happy and inspired 🙂

While I can’t say that everything I own has some inspiring meaning behind it, I do try my best. Anyone can do it. I chose an accessory I could wear because it feels more like a part of me, but it doesn’t have to be. A little poster. The wallpaper on your desktop. A song that plays on the morning alarm. It’s easy to surround yourself with little bits of inspiration.

Modern day life is so full of rush and hurry, sometimes our inner spark gets buried away deep inside us. That’s why it’s nice to have something you can look at and it all comes back out.

Not bad for a just little green bottle, eh? 🙂

  1. Dare I say it, Lily?? This was a Wicked good post… : )

    I especially liked the lines:

    Because I don’t just love something. I love it because it taught me something. I love it because it made me realise things… and that’s how it captivated my heart.

    Insightful, and beautifully said. And in conclusion: may 2015 glow green with happiness for you!! : )

      Hahaha, Wicked indeed! I am quite unashamed to say that when I love something, I really do love it. It’s hard not to when it teaches you so much about yourself!

      Thank you, Mark! May your 2015 been filled with great things to come! But of course it will – great things come to great people after all 🙂
