Have I ever told you guys about Groot, or mini Groot to be specific? You might have seen him mentioned in 50 Things That Make Me Happy post.
Groot is the name of my favourite character from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. He is essentially a tree creature, who can do awesome things (trying not to include any spoilers). At one point in the movie, he appears in the form of mini – or baby – Groot (okay, I guess that was a spoiler), and is planted in a pot. The scene shows him dancing along to I Want You Back by the Jackson 5, and it is honestly one of the cutest things you will ever see.
My best friend got me a mini dancing Groot toy for my 21st birthday, for me to talk to whenever he’s not around. The toy is honestly one of my favourite things. The head has a spring mechanism in it, so when you flick it, it moves around. Just watching that lifts my mood.
Just goes to show that yes, I suffer from anxiety but I really do relish and treasure such things and moments; they become a big part of my life, and I do have ways to escape from it for a few seconds or minutes.
