So this is love, so this is what makes life divine…

Did anyone else notice this?

if you’re still a teen and you feel like you don’t have your life together, feel like you don’t have a best friend or someone to love you, or feel like things are never going to get better, just think: Dan didn’t meet Phil until he was 18 and look where he is now only 6 years later, he’s happy and successful and has a best friend and has gotten his life together in so many ways… That means there’s a future for you too, don’t lose hope before your life’s had a chance to begin :)

A Lesson On Being in the “Now”

We live in a time where we are always trying to distract ourselves from the present. We are always grabbing for something else, often unconsciously, to change our mood — change the channel, get a cup of coffee, have a cigarette, scroll down facebook, but so often what we are reaching for is not material at all. Subconsciously we are not happy with how we are living in that moment. We are searching for some kind of fulfillment. We are so uncomfortable with living life just as it should be, that we create problems and unhappiness for ourselves. You see, life isn’t meant to exist in a narrow state of perpetual happiness. That’s a book - those are movies. It is very far from reality. 

So what can you do right now? Breathe, and slow down. Start right now by looking at the colors around you. Inhale deeply and notice how the air smells. Pretend you are a child again, experiencing life for the very first time - one sense at a time. Notice the sounds around you - even the subtle ones. The hum of your computer, the soft breathing of your dog or cat, envelop the sounds of music and feel them deeply. Whatever you are doing, do it fully. Do it with all of yourself. After doing this for a few minutes, notice how you feel. Calmer? Simpler? This is how life should be! This is also a form of meditation and one can find it very therapeutic to relax their mind through focusing on external simplicities. 

The goal here is to FEEL. Embrace all emotions and feelings. This is to be human. This is to be alive. Let yourself cry and let yourself be angry. LET yourself feel things. This world trains us for a life of indifference -over the years we forget that empathy is the key to happiness. Feeling is the key to life. So let yourself feel. Feel all your vivid, fiery, watery emotions. Give yourself permission to be full-bodied. Peel away the many layers that you’ve built up over the years. The peeling is necessary for growth and happiness.  It’s a messy, beautiful, magnificent process. Breathe, relax, and let go. 

There’s something important you need to know

There’s a lot of posts on Tumblr about being confident in yourself and encouraging you to not feel insecure, and those are good, but there’s something that’s missing from these posts that needs to be said.

Self confidence isn’t a constant feeling, it’s more of a tidal emotion, it ebbs and flows. Insecurity can attack you at any time, and can stay for any amount of time. You can be the most confident person and suddenly find yourself dry. That’s okay. 

You just have to wait it out. Your confidence will return; you aren’t weak. You aren’t broken. You are every bit as beautiful, wonderful and strong as you were before. 

anonymous asked:

Okay okay, this isn't much of an ask, but I wanted to say that your blog makes me so happy and hopeful. Because I can't draw all that but seeing your art reminds me of how I sometimes draw, and I just wanted to say thank you.

!!! We’re happy we’re able to make your day better!!!
I hope that as an artist you can become more confident and happy with your art too!!

“It’s been rough, but I’m back, and eager to see you all again!~” 

//guess who’s back? :’3c

OFFLINE. i’m going to respond to asks later! i promised i’ll get them today but my writing mood got killed so later it is. i hate sleeping this early but i don’t think i can get anything else done so i’m sorry for the wait. i’ll get to them whenever.

I love how much Caspar compliments Joe.
Like here he was straight up like ‘Joe is the second best song bird of our generation’
And he genuinely means it.
