the first one was the hardest

instagram

Today was my lifting birthday! Not sure if there’s a term for it but 1 year ago I decided to take my health and fitness seriously and got my ass up and off to a real gym and started the #stronglifts 5x5 program. I can honestly say it was the best decision I made last year and I only wish I had started sooner. Lifting has taught me a lot of about life and the value of consistency. I don’t think I’ve ever been this consistent with anything else in my life but I look forward to my training and the incremental progress I make every time. It started off as something very intimidating to me but now it’s just something that I do. The hardest squat you’ll ever do is the first one so if you’ve been putting it off, don’t wait because you’ll just wish you started sooner. (at Barbell Brigade)

"It is always the first and last steps that are the hardest to take. We walk away and try not to turn back, or we stand just outside the gates, terrified to find what’s waiting for us now that we’ve returned. In between, we stumble blindly from one place and life to the next. We try to do the best we can. There are moments like this, however, when we are neither coming nor going, and all we have to do is sit and look back on the life we have made." - Dinaw Mengestu 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 Half way through the week. Been killing it at work lately, gotta love it. I swear I got the worst case of writers block right now lol. It’s driving me crazy. Stay B47anced 🙏

I was tagged by the ever lovely nerodmcdevilslayer! Thank you so much, my lovely!

You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod/iPhone/phone/whatever and write down the first ten songs and pass it to ten other people. One rule: no skipping.

"No matter where we go, we’ll always be friends!"  reikawa asked: killua or/and gon. 

I think the hardest part is not knowing how many ways we’re going to miss Zayn. Like, he’s not the front man, he’s not the biggest personality he’s not the first one to talk in an interview… But Zayn is like the warmth that seeps into every crack and crevice to hold everything together. He’s quiet comfort and solid familiarity. He’s the soft laugh in the back of a silly interview and a hand on a shoulder during a hard one. Zayn leaving exposes every crack, every weakness in the foundation. He’s going to be so missed.

Late to the rock-fursona party. Chose star garnet.

Gem is located near the base of the spine, since garnets are associated with the first chakra. I don’t have any weapon but can open tiny pocket dimensions to hide in. It’s mostly just a defensive ability and can only hold one person at a time.

JOE DEMPSIE for Wire Magazine (x)

Joe’s motto is ‘As long as you’re enjoying it, that’s all that matters’. He believes you have to enjoy the journey, he admits he’s guilty of rushing through his career but feels – ‘it’s important to celebrate every success, no matter how big or small.’  “Obviously have ambitions,” he finishes “but make sure you appreciate every step of the way.

About the return of Gendry: “they would have my head off if I say anything! It was amazing to be part of, and it would be really great to do it again, but that’s all I’m saying…”

"To dream, to live and be thankful every day,
and pray for you to be the last one to pass away,
Hope.” ()

The hardest thing in life that you could ever do is telling your best friend that you’re in love with him. You risk your friendship that has build up for years just for that 1% chance that they might feel the same. And if they don’t- you lose the only person that you could vent to.
—  You can’t tell him that he’s the one who broke your heart
In the end, maybe all I can say is I tried to.
I tried to breathe, saved up bandages like skin petals
and hanged them on windows to dry. I tried to kiss,
strangers who mean nothing until the first
tiptoe dance to that one song that may have been played
on the moon countless times before it is sent back to the earth.
I tried to want, good things, the ones that make me feel
lighter than a split-end of hair, like that first line of light
seeping through the eyelashes of dawn. I tried to love,
myself, more than anyone ever did, more
than anyone ever apologize for after leaving. And I am trying
to be okay with that. And sometimes that’s the hardest part.
—  Kharla M. Brillo, I’m Getting There

Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re stupid or pathetic or silly to be crying over what happened, because they will never understand.

Zayn was apart of your life. He was a part of a wonderful group that changed the way you viewed music. Hell he might have even saved your life.

This decision he made was for himself and I respect the hell out of him for making the decision to put himself first. You have to know that it must have been one of the hardest decisions he ever had to make to walk away from four brothers.

But don’t hate, don’t bash, and don’t take any bullshit from anyone. Be proud that you were able to witness the greatness of One Direction.

Zayn Malik will forever be in our hearts.

Thank you for blessing us with four albums Zayn, you will always be loved.
