“He brings to his responsibility an extraordinary compassion as well as competence and I think people know that. Every day that goes by I see him doing more and more to try to fulfill his vision for the kind of country he wants for our daughter and for all children, and I just think we’re very lucky to have him at this point in our history…and I say that as a totally objective observer!”
Tumblr oftentimes romanticizes self care (along with everything else involving mental health), and with that romanticization can come guilt that your way of self care isn’t “perfect.” What tumblr doesn’t usually talk about is the self care that isn’t so beautiful. Simply showering, paying bills on time, taking time to prepare a meal, managing your money properly, getting up at a decent hour, making an important phone call. These are all ways of taking care of yourself that may not be as beautiful as a candlelit bath, but are just, if not more, effective in getting you back to where you want to be.
MORE Beauty and the Beast things I LOVE (collected upon a second viewing):
-The Enchantress/Agathe is played by Hattie Morahan, who played Elinor against Dan Stevens’s Edward in BBC’s 2008 Sense and Sensibility, and I love it when actors are brought back together. Gave me the same smiles as watching Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth in their one scene in The King’s Speech
-LeFou paying everyone in the tavern before “Gaston” because you know he choreographed that months before and they rehearse it every Thursday just in case.
-Cadenza is playing “Be Our Guest” when Maurice overhears the music!
-Maurice’s reaction to Chip is everything
-Maurice and Belle’s relationship is so sweet and wonderful and perfect, and the fact that hearing about it and seeing evidence of it is what finally convinces Beast that not all fathers are douchebags!
-Lumiere’s not a womanizer anymore! He’s devoted to Plumette, not just flirting with her and I love it
-I love Mme. de Garderobe attacking fragile masculinity with gowns and makeup, and then shouting “BE FREE” after them like some gender-role smashing fairy godmother
-”I am not a beast.” Ugh. Just, kill me with perfection why don’t you
-The Beast’s face and eyeroll and nine-year-old boy reaction to Belle’s love of R&J, and the fact that he GIVES HER HIS LIBRARY not because he wants to win her over, but because he just wants her to read better material, and if that isn’t 183% what I would also do, I don’t know what is
-Belle’s happy little shriek after the Beast leaves her alone in the library is all of us don’t pretend it’s not
-Belle trying to hide the rope out the window by standing in front of it. Like, sweetie.
-The juxtaposition of the opening and closing dances! With Adam in the first one flitting from partner to partner and even when he’s dancing with someone, he’s always looking around for a better option, versus that final dance when his eyes are 100% on Belle
-The castle getting more and more dilapidated as each petal falls
-THE BANTER YES FOREVER
There were so many more things but I couldn’t remember them all and I need to go see it again with a notebook, but SErIOUSLY until then COME GUSH IN MY INBOX I need to talk to people about this movie and I’m driving everyone in my real life crazy
May the heavens bless Luffy for coming up with the perfect words to relieve Sanji of his terrible burden.
If you think about it, up to this point this arc was everything about Sanji not being allowed to be his true self - he was ridiculed and abused by his own family for being kind, for being vulnerable, for being human. Part of the reason why he was still in so much agony even when he was free to leave was because his kind and vulnerable inner self was demanding him to save even his cruelest abusers.
But Luffy gives him the affirmation to be who he is, as if it’s the most natural thing in the world. He’s basically telling Sanji that he didn’t expect any less of him, that such kindness is why he wants him back and why he chose him as his cook in the first place. To Luffy, no more explanation or apology is needed in Sanji being Sanji, regardless of what kind of danger that may bring forth. If that is not the greatest salvation for Sanji’s poor soul in this arc, I don’t know what is.

A quick sketch of Orisa, the recently revealed new tank hero for Overwatch!
I’m so excited. Everything about her is perfect, I love the design, I love the concept and she sounds like a really nice character gameplay-wise as well. I really can’t wait! I had to doodle something. Orisa (and Efi) just make me so happy. They’re so good and pure.
Me two days ago:
Okay so Beauty and the Beast is my favorite animated movie and Belle is very special to me and I'm just really worried the live action is going to suck I'm not crazy about Emma's singing and also the dress is hideous and I mean ugh I'm just terrified I'll hate it
THE LIVE ACTION IS EVERYTHING TO ME FLAWS AND ALL HELP ME I CAN'T DEAL
Most other groups: *basically live on music shows with their five costume coordinators but get either amazing outfits or everything from the second hand store five minutes before the show no in between*
Day6: *gets one week of music shows per year*
“what we wearing?“
“shit I don’t know I thought you knew”
“what about jeans?”
“should we all match?”
“HEY GUYS I FOUND A SHIRT WITHOUT A HOLE IN IT”
“BRILLIANT LET’S ALL DO THAT”
This is definitely my favourite moment from episode 12 because both Victor and Yuuri are just so precious in this?
Look at this beautiful boy who declares he’ll win just so Victor could kiss his medal. He just wanted to retire but how could he when Victor says he failed as a coach? He’ll skate one more year and he’ll win this time ok.
But then as much as I love Victor’s ridiculous puppy eyes (same Victor, same) his answer is just so perfect because honestly, Victor’s main goal was to make Yuuri confident in his skills and to help him get the best score and the whole time after Yuuri beats his record he’s so proud and happy and Yuuri saying he wants to stay is everything he wanted to hear and yet he demands more.
Victor, how long have you been thinking about competing with Yuuri while still coaching him? Because it looks like he already calculated all the risk and despite he doesn’t hesitate for a second? He’s so in love I can’t handle it and I also love how he puts Yuuri’s medal around his neck as if he was stating that it’s still valid but at the same time he says he wants Yuuri to win more times as he deserves.
Victor knows this is ridiculous, he was the only person ever to be able to do something like that and he was much younger when he started and he still totally looks like he thinks Yuuri could do this. Even when he does that super sweet thing with his face when he winks (I can’t find the gif but you know which one lol) it doesn’t look like his just teasing Yuuri he really is able to believe that at that moment even if he knows how it sounds. And then Yuuri doesn’t say it’s stupid or he could never do it, he says “okay”?!
He’s moved to tears because of how much Victor believes in him and how much Victor wants to do for him so they could stay together and so they could compete on the same ice because Yuuri always wanted that and promising Victor he’ll win for him is the least he can do in return?
Like this is the moment where most of their dreams come true and instead of just celebrating they sit there declaring absurd things to each other because they believe so much in the power of their love I’m so done with them, bye.
