You can, so do it

Whatever it is you wish to accomplish, you can do it. You can do it if you will take the time and make the effort.

Very likely you have talked yourself out of it, and others have talked you out of it, too. Nonetheless, you can do it by making the choice and making the commitment.

It will demand the best of you, but that’s a benefit rather than a drawback. Giving your all while working toward a meaningful goal is one of the most empowering things you can do.

And you can do it, without question, without a doubt. You can do it when you choose to start and continue making the choice to keep going.

Whatever may seem to be beyond your reach begins to draw closer the moment you begin to do the work. Instead of complaining that you don’t know what to do, just do what you can and make the commitment to learn more each step of the way.

You are here right now to achieve great and wonderful things. You can, so do it.

Living in LA: The Good, The Bad, and The Damn Truth.

1. Patience is a virtue; Everyone should work on it.

4. Real friends; Cherish them because they’re a dying breed.
5. The number one quality inhibited by most: Selfishness
6. There are good people everywhere; You just have to look ten times harder to find them.
7. Appearances are everything; This will make or break you?
8. Being a good person doesn’t get you as far as you think.
9. Take care of yourself; Your body is ultimately the vehicle that will take you everywhere.
10. Don’t stress the small things; Appreciate what you have because someone else probably wants it.
11. Find your bliss and set yourself free.
12. Fear is a motherfucker; And a lie.

20. 40 is the new 25.
21. Most of the time it’s “all in your head,” then again it’s probably not.
22. How often can I make myself seem important, what can I brag about now?
23. Haters: They exist, so just get over it.
24. Happiness; A skill learned by very few.
25. Gratitude? What’s that?
26: Give when you can because it’s good PR or at least good karma if you’re Kabbalist.
27. Vampires: They do exist, but, it’s not blood they’re really after.
28. Everyone suffers from insecurities; Some just hide it better, don’t hate.
29. I’ll pretend I like you when you’re around, but, I really don’t like you…
30. Entitlement trumps everything!
31. My dreams are more important than yours…because I deserve it more.
32. Oh I’ll help you, BUT, this is how much I charge…
33. I’m so happy for you! Inside Thoughts: Actually, I’m really not…
34. Confidence: One of the most desirable qualities on earth.
35. Actually, it does matter what you look like.
36. Racism is a alive and well…reality check.
37. It doesn’t affect me personally, so I really don’t care.
38. Luck does exist; And is sometimes a vital part of the equation.
39. Talent is sometimes over-rated.
40. How many followers do you have?
41. When is it a bad time to take a selfie?
42. No one really cares about your dreams…Well maybe if you can make them some money.
43. Everyone is unique and special. Reality Check: Does your uniqueness make you money?
44. Humility; a quality valued by very few.
45. Reality, what’s that?
46. Living trivially is acceptable.
47. Sometimes “more” is better. Whoever said “less is more” was wrong!
48. Those who really “got it” never have to try…
49. Persistence is key in everything.
50. Nice guys finish last. Literally.

Alexa Meade :  People Transformed Into Paintings

on Facebook

What you are about to see, are not paintings on canvas! Alexa Meade paints with acrylics directly on human flesh creating the illusion of painterly portraits.

“Alexa Meade is an installation artist based in the Washington, DC area. Her background in the world of political communications has fueled her intellectual interest in the tensions between perception and reality.

Dear White People Trailer - A MUST SEE OMG

The entire trailer was basically

>waah yt ppl

>BLACK PEOPLE CANT BE RACIST

>yt ppl = bad guys, black power, black ppl = good guys

>the end

I wonder how many awards this shitshow is going to win lol. 

How can black people in Tumblr even claim to be oppressed when they have an entire film released in theaters about their worthless rants?

white people butthurt about truth. 

I’m actually a brown Nicaraguan mestizo, but nice try. If only you brain was nearly a big as your breasts perhaps you could have significant brain activity to not come out as an idiot.

Sigghhh

withoutalias
soooooo we’re seeing this.

This is obviously a must see if white people are already upset about the trailer.

Forgive yourself

Punishing yourself for your mistakes won’t erase them or move you forward. Being angry and disappointed at yourself for a missed opportunity or a wasted day won’t achieve anything positive.

Instead, forgive yourself, and free yourself from your past mistakes. Forgive yourself, learn from those mistakes, and turn your attention to what you can do now.

Choose to be more determined, more committed, and more focused rather than being angry. Transform the energy of disappointment and regret into useful action and achievement.

Whatever may have happened or failed to happen in the past, you have this moment right now. And you can make productive, meaningful use of it, beginning right now.

You don’t have to let a disappointing experience turn into negative momentum. You have the power to instantly put yourself on a positive path, so make the choice to exercise that power.

Look ahead, imagine the best, and get yourself busy moving forward. Leave the regrets about the past in the past, and find renewed energy right now in building a great future.

In my shoes, just to see
What it’s like, to be me
I’ll be you, let’s trade shoes
Just to see what it’d be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other’s mind
Just to see what we find
Look at shit through each other’s eyes
But don’t let ‘em say you ain’t beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked.
Just stay true to you so oh oh
So don’t let ‘em say you ain’t beautiful
Oh, they can all get fucked.
Just stay true to you so oh oh
