This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, all emotions are beautiful. Life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Live your dreams and wear your passion. Life is short.
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart, and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you. Then one stupid person, no different than any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…you give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day - like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”—Neil Gaiman (via fuckyeahwendydarling)
In which we express skepticism at the idea that Hollywood cannot find a logistical way to keep Banksy shrouded, come Oscar time. Seriously, guys? C’mon, Chris Nolan, help ’em out—isn’t this what you do?
“A dictator cannot be allowed to shun the foreign press, and to shut off his country, and kill his people, and not have anybody not know their names and the struggles they are undergoing… The world should know what’s happening.”—Anderson Cooper on Libya (via lifeaficionada)
