Gollum: prettier than Legolas
this post is beautiful.
if you put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out.
if you put a frog in warm water and gradually turn up the heat until the water is boiling, the frog will remain there until it dies.
and that is an abusive relationship.
- one bad test grade does not mean a failed class.
- an unhealthy meal does not make you unhealthy.
- one unkind remark does not make you a bad person.
- one cut, one binge, one purge, one fix does not mean being clean is hopeless.
- one mistake does not make you a failure.
- one million mistakes do not make you a failure.
Reblogging this because I need this.
I really needed to hear this
"You two have managed to accomplish something together no one ever has; you surprised me.”
I’ve been fucking waiting for this photo set right here, and let me tell you why. Monsters University quickly became my favorite movie due to a single fact, that these two? They failed. They actually went to school and they failed, they didn’t get brought back in, they didn’t make a miraculous come back at the end, they fucking failed College.
But that didn’t stop them. Through hard work, perseverance, and taking opportunities that came a long instead of just settling for where they were at, they were able so still make it to where they wanted to be.
That is super powerful, it gives you hope, knowing that college isn’t the only way. Because you know what? It isn’t, you don’t have to go to college to get to where you want to be or to be happy. You just got to take chances, take opportunities, swallow that fear and do things to help change your life for the better. If you believe college is it? Fantastic! Go for it!
However, remember: Life is never over if you fail something. You just got to look for opportunities to bring yourself back up.
Something a little more personal.
Since my move to California, there had been a lot of self-doubt about my level of talent and whether or not I should have made the choices I’ve made leading up to this point. As I’ve said in this, even when it seems as though everything’s not going well, life has a way of turning things around when you work hard enough to make that happen.
Even though what I’m saying is pretty much general knowledge, I made this more for myself than anyone else…but it’s something I hope someone could look at now and later. To remind themselves of their potential, whether they believe they have it or not. I myself still have a ways to go, but I continue creating art and remaining more hopeful than ever.
Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.
1. You’re alive.
2. You have a roof over your head, food to eat and clothes to wear.
3. You have access to basic education, and are able to read and write.
4. You have choices, and the freedom to make your own decisions (about what to eat, what to wear, where to live, the kind of career you would like to pursue etc.)
5. You are not being persecuted for your beliefs, and you live in a country that respects your human rights.
6. You have faced and overcome some huge obstacles.
7. You have experienced the warmth and the love of friends.
8. There are people in your life who miss you, and look forward to seeing you again.
9. You can enjoy gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
1o. You have access to the internet!
Day 1082 - 18 November 2013
with a dash of positivity
I don’t usually reblog stuff to this blog, but this is beautiful, and we all could use the reminder.
If you want to be strong, tell yourself you already are. You may not lift mountains but you can lift boulders. Your work isn’t perfect, no, your art isn’t flawless but you DID it and not everyone can do that. Not everyone can sit down and create so, goddamn, tell yourself that you are fucking great for committing yourself to something because you ARE. Even if you aren’t good at it, it makes you happy and you DID it. You won’t be strong unless you believe you are strong. Look in the mirror every morning and admit your faults but, please, admit your strengths. Build your confidence until it can’t be knocked down, find the good in your life even if you have to search long and hard.
If you want a light, strike a match. Don’t wait for the sun to shine.
“To judge a man by his weakest link or deed is like judging the power of the ocean by one wave.”This is literary my favourtie thing ever
Never forget that you are the protagonist of your own story
and the antagonist of someone else’s!
And a possible love interest in some other peoples! 0u0
This might just be the single most inspiration thing I have ever seen on the internet.
You are also a supporting character to a lots of people’s stories. You might even be the kind stranger who unintentionally turns someone’s life around for the better.
