Parents: *come in and turn the light off*
Me: *staring at book in the dark*
Me: happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.
Me: *stands up and turns on the light*
Me: *continues reading*
harry potter saga“A word of caution: dementors are vicious creatures. They will not distinguish between the one they hunt and the one who gets in there way. Therefore I must warn each and every one of you to give them no reason to harm you. It’s not in the nature of a dementor to be forgiving. But you know happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.”
see what’s actually really amazing about game of thrones is that there are so many horrible terrible fucked up things and people it makes you so damned sad that you make a mental list of the few good people and things and then you realize that the list is actually kinda long and under all the slaughtering and madness there is a huge amount of hope and goodness and it’s actually really inspiring like that. also dragons.

I’ve always loved the quote “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” and for a while now I’ve wanted a candle tattooed on my wrist to represent that. A little over a month ago I found out my mom has breast cancer. She’s had a double mastectomy and has just started Chemo and my moms friend who’s an artist was over so I asked her to draw this on my wrist in pink sharpie. I doubt when I get it tattooed it’ll be in pink but for now it’s a good reminder for me to help me keep going.
