i've learnt so much

Gosh. They really did love the blanket!

Maxine Alderton at the Emmerdale: Anatomy of a Hit event tonight, talking about the moment she realised and discovered there was an entire active fandom for robron out there during the abuse reveal scene she wrote back in January 2016.

And you don’t really know how to comfort someone when they doubt Allah’s power and ability to change their circumstances. How do you show the mercy of Allah to the one who’s constantly turning blind eye on His mercy in the first place? How do you tell them Allah is the most Merciful when all they do is question everything?

I have realised that when all avenue close, it’s not that there’s no way for you to find the light but rather it could mean it is not the time to find the light just yet. If you have doing everything in your power to change your circumstances but it brings you no way out, it doesn’t mean your circumstances will never change rather it means it is not the time for your circumstances to be changed. There is a time for everything & Allah has written everything in a clear book with appointed time.

Like a baby grows inside a womb for 9 months, you cannot give birth before a certain term has come to an end, it is important for the foetus to grow in the womb thus it completes its 9 months to be a healthy baby. Each day, week and months are forming a part of the baby. Each moment it develops although we may not see it with our own eyes but it’s how Allah’s wisdom works. There’s a term for the eyes to be formed, for the ear to be developed, for the heart to start beating. If we were to try to take the baby out from the womb at early stage when it’s not complete yet what would happen? You will only be disappointed.

You have to be patient for the baby to fully grow and come to an appointed term for it to be in your arms. Just like that, you have to be patient with your hardships, wishes and dreams to come to an appointed time because while you despair, Allah is making changes to your circumstances each and every moment without you realising. If it is not the time, no matter what you do and how hard you try, you cannot achieve it until Allah allows you to.

Allah inspired your little heart to ask for something because He wants to give it you but it is necessary for you to understand that by the nature of this dunya, things take time & you have to be patient enough to bear that. Allah knows what you want but only He knows when it’s good for you. But know one day Allah will show why it wasn’t good for you to have it at the time you asked and you will only thank Allah for that.

Before Allah even gives you a problem, Allah plans in your favour. He is already given the solutions at your doorstep. He never leaves you alone to yourself to deal with it. And this is faith, for Allah to see will you be patient until the appointed time for your hardship comes and you still believe in Him? Or will you give up and despair in His mercy and doubt Him.

Like you go to school at 8am, you can’t get ready and go there at 8pm and wonder why the school is closed. If it’s holidays and closed, you can’t sit there for hours and wait for it open 2 weeks later just to attend your favourite class with your best friends. You have to enjoy your holidays before school starts again. Just like that, you can’t sit there and wait for the hardship to end, you have to live your life and move on each day.

When the school opens, you can go to your favourite class, you can talk to your best friends all day, but only when the school opens then you can go to your class. When the times comes, everything will fall into places. Your hardship will come to an end when you have achieved the purpose Allah wanted you to achieve.

Allah only gives you tests to make you a stronger believer so that He may reward you for your patience. Whoever is patient, has a reward with Allah without any limit and account. Remember, everything happens at the right time no matter how much you want it right now. There is a time for everything. When your times comes, Allah will shower you with His blessings, love and favours. He won’t ever abandon you, He created you, He is the Most Loving and the Most Merciful.

I think one of the most interesting things to happen during the trial had to be Zircon referring to Rose Quartz as a “strategem”. Perhaps that’s one of the roles Rose Quartz’s played? She was a gem made to specialize in strategy, hence the term “strategem”. Especially since Jasper did say she admired Rose’s tactics in battle (or something similar to that). Maybe that too was a reference to what Roses were made for?

I mean it could be nothing, especially since there’s a lot of other things Rose Quartz could do (which we assume other Roses could do as well), like the healing and what have you…but I don’t think they would just drop a phrase like “strategem” if it didn’t refer to Rose Quartz being a gem who specialized in well, strategy.

Happy Birthday @incaseyouart 💕

If you asked me a year ago if i will ever draw myself, I would have said no. But if its the only way we can ever be in the same picture, I’ll draw myself standing next to you over and over again to remind me even if we live all the way across the ocean from each other, art and internet can keep us together. Thank you for being you and the biggest ray of light in my life. Happy birthday, my special bean :’)! You mean so much to me and more!!!

watch-spirit-deactivated2016012  asked:

Hi Charity! I really love your blog, I've learnt so much about MBTI from reading your posts! I was just wondering if you would mind possibly doing a comparison of INFP and INTP females specifically? I was wondering whether INTP females may come across as more polite and sensitive than their male counterparts due to society's expectations of men and women? And equally I suppose whether male feelers may come across as less "touchy feely" than their female counterparts? Thanks in advance! :)

Usually, yes, they do.

Lower Fe enables women to adapt more readily into what society expects from a woman regardless of their type and to soften their approach. (In the TJ women, Te reasons that mimicking social graces will get them further in life and enable them to maintain a professional standard.)

And since the male idea is an ESTP in the popular public consciousness, male feelers may put on a tough front to cover up their sensitiveness.

But anyway, INTP and INFP women.

Well, one of the best INTP females I can think of is Samantha Carter from Stargate SG-1. Perfect example of a healthy INTP. Totally logical, but often polite, has a vested interest in the survival of humanity, is quite good at calming people down (unless she gets upset too… when Rodney is talking, heh), and all about science, space exploration, and invention. Sam can get the group out of just about any fix. She can be a bad-ass, but she can also be sweet. She kind of plays off whatever dynamic she’s in – around Rodney she becomes more assertive and defensive (because his TJ complaints about her logic being faulty and meandering around offends her Fe), around Jack she softens up because she’s responding to his liking for her, around Daniel she can take more of an active interest in the moral element of whatever she’s doing. But she never wants to leave anyone behind or make any decision that hurts the masses. Lots of lower Fe at work in her life.

Let’s see, a good INFP for comparison… um, Madame Bovary? (In some depictions she’s an ENFP but in this one I didn’t see much Te.) Mostly the sense you get from her is… emotion. Hidden emotion, burning under the surface, infusing every element of her life with her feelings and moral beliefs. The decisions she makes are based not on logic, as Sam’s would be, but on being truly authentic to herself – to being a romantic, a lover of poetry, to having beautiful things about her, to finding someone she truly loves and cares about. She is reluctant to involve herself in things that are none of her business but at the same time has very strong opinions on moral matters.

Her inferior Te gives her sharper edges than Sam possesses; under stress, she can become brutally honest, with a sharp tongue that cuts to the quick. She lacks that desire to “be part of the group” that comes with Fe, and instead seeks out those with whom she is strongly drawn to – forming in many cases, a silent bond that is never talked out but instead acted on and felt. Where Sam’s interests are impersonal and tied in logic (science, for example), Emma’s are all personal to her (poetry, fashion, art, books, music) and drawn from those things that make her heart sing.

Japanese you can learn from Naruto

okay so i’ve learnt all this stuff from Naruto so i’ve put it in a list so you can see what you recognise c:
some of this stuff I already knew but I put it in because it’s mentioned in naruto on multiple occasions (e.g mizu, hoshi, gomen, hai, aka etc.) 

iruka - dolphin
sakura - cherry blossom
kakashi - scarecrow
itachi - weasel
sasori - scorpion 
kisame - shark
chou - butterfly 
aka - red
shika - dear
kurenai - crimson

kage - shadow
mizu - water
konoha - leaf
suna - sand
kaze - wind
rai - lightning
tsuchi - soil
iwa - rock
hoshi - star
bunshin - clone

(o)nii-chan - sis/sister
(o)nee-san - bro/brother
otoosan - dad
okaasan - mum

doushita - what’s wrong
doushite - why 
nani - what
sou desu ka - is that so 
gomen (nasai) - sorry
hai - yes

shi - death
shinu - death

okay I didn’t pick those up from Naruto but I decided to add them in since half of the names mentioned are of dead people 

It means that our feelings and understanding of the people we love should change and evolve over time. How I feel about Lyla when we were first married isn’t how I feel about her now. Admitting that doesn’t take away anything from the way I was in love with her back then, but it gives everything to the way I love her now. I've learnt so much about her, about me since then, good and bad, and that’s important. Love stories shouldn’t be written in concrete, Oliver, there is no give in concrete. It should be written in tensile steel, forged under extreme temperatures, but all the stronger and more flexible because of it.

Sorry for the LOOONG quote, but this one has the most sage advice Diggle has ever given Oliver, IMO (actually, it’s good advice for ANY relationship). Louise = this was PERFECTION. It gives me SO many season 4 feels it’s ridiculous. My eyes welled up with tears when I read it.

Technically this is part 3 of a series. Read part 1 Secret Women’s Business HERE and part 2 Love Potion #9 HERE.  People - seriously read this trifecta. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, your heart will explode.
