if unique is what you seek

How to be a Genuine and Fun-Loving Person

1. Value and respect the fact that you are a totally unique individual, with your own destiny to fulfill. Believe in who you are, what you think and believe, your gifts and talents, and what you have to offer to those around you.

2. Refuse to give into negative feelings of anxiety, self doubt or insecurity. In fact, “fake it till you make it” is often good advice … So, ignore how you feel, and act the way you want to be. Choose to switch off the old tapes that keep on playing in your head, and try to visualize your goals and then push on and seek to reach them.

3. Don’t pay any attention to what others think about you. The most important judgment should be yours, and yours alone. If you live in constant fear of what others think about you, it will only hold you back from realizing your potential. Also, you’re not a clone of others as each of us is different. Don’t be afraid to be unique or to stand out against the crowd.

4. Accept that you have good points, and areas for growth. We’re all a mix of different qualities, and flaws, and traits. We all make mistakes – it’s what you do with them matters – so embrace the fact you’re human and won’t always get it right.

5. Also, develop a tough skin and don’t take insults personally. Look back and laugh – don’t cower – or criticise yourself. It won’t help if you’re sensitive or worried all the time. It’s better to forgive yourself, and then move on again.

6. Develop your ability to think creatively. Try out those new ideas, and choose to live outside the box.

7. Seek to enjoy this moment, and to live life in the present. Be grateful for the small things, and savour all you have.

Scorpio, Sagittarius and Aquarius:

These signs are the type who have nasty habits, and can be prone to addictions. To add onto that, they’re also unapologetically rebellious. Being told they can’t do something might as well be a way to egg them on, as they refuse to be told what they can, can’t or shouldn’t do. Daredevils, rebels, and loose cannons, they’re all unpredictable yet predictable. In some ways, they keep certain patterns. Sagittarius’s desire to seek truth and adventure, Scorpio’s desire for power, and Aquarius’s desire to be unique and stray from the pack. These desires make it easy to pinpoint their next move… until they figure out you know whats up. Right then, they switch it up on you.

How do you feel about the information revealed about Ymir? It feels a lot less significant than what the fandom hoped it would be.

I was a strong believer in Ymir being special. I’d hoped she was the reincarnation of The Ymir and a key to the outworking of the story. But you know what? I’m more than ok with the reveal. In fact, I love it. 

Ymir was nothing. She was a freckled street urchin picked up by a con artist and made to play the role of a goddess. She wasn’t special. She wasn’t unique. She didn’t even have a name.

I’ve often wondered why Ymir was drawn to Historia. Why did 12 year old Ymir, hiding in a church, decide to seek her out? What did she want? Why did the story of the hated bastard princess elicit sympathy in Ymir? All Ymir would say is “we were similar.” It’s all a little clearer now.

Irl goddess or not, Ymir’s story is still significant to me. Maybe more so. She was saved, not by her blood or birth, but by a little luck and her own tenacity. And she saved Historia too. When Historia was facing the decision of pressing that plunger, it was memories of Ymir that stopped her. Ymir taught her to stop being a good girl and determine her own fate. Ymir showed her how to live. 

So this turned into a tangent, but learning about Ymir and having her back in the story just made me really really happy (and no, I don’t think she’s dead!) Thanks anon! This was a nice post to end 2016 on.

Title: Valentine’s Day

Pairings: Jimmy darling x (f) reader

Warnings: Swearing, implied smut, FLUFF!!

A/N: Requests are currently closed as are ships. Gifs aren’t mine.

Can you do a one shot where it’s Valentine’s Day and Jimmy surprises you with loads of cute things x

Valentine’s Day was quickly approaching and Y/N was extremely nervous. It was the first Valentine’s Day that Y/N and Jimmy had been officially dating for. And Y/N was stuck in a rut as to what to get Jimmy. He was hard enough to buy for at Christmas and on his birthday, but Valentine’s Day was significantly harder - the gift had to be heartfelt and unique. Y/N was struggling, but Jimmy - on the other hand - had everything planned.

Y/N started to seek assistance from the others in camp, trying to get some ideas as to what to get Jimmy. She decided to start at Elsa’s tent first and ask her for ideas.

She cautiously stepped inside, peering around for any sign of Elsa. She frowned when she couldn’t find her. Elsa was usually in her tent at this time of day. Y/N sighed exasperatedly. Y/N felt as if she wasn’t a good girlfriend, because she couldn’t think of what to get Jimmy and Jimmy was flourishing when it came to getting her gifts, he knew what to get her.

Y/N sulkily wandered back to her caravan, deciding she would be able to think of something to get him there, where they had made a hundred memories. She tugged open the door, the hinges creaking slightly, and she clambered inside. The darkness engulfed her and she stumbled towards her bed, bumping into the drawer beside it. She collapsed on the bed, face first into the soft duvet. Her eyes fluttered shut unwillingly and sleep consumed her.

____

She woke up to the sound of ruffling and hushed voices. She frowned deeply, not opening her eyes, her forehead creased and she heard a boyish chuckle from beside her. Peaking an eye open, a sleepy smile crept into her face at the sight of her boyfriend - Jimmy - standing over her, smiling brightly, his eyes shining with complete and utter love for her.

“Morning, baby.” Jimmy whispered, brushing a strand of hair out of her face.

Y/N’s eye shut and she savoured the feeling of his slightly calloused, conjoined fingers brushing against her forehead.

“Morning.” She croaked, before registering what he had said. “Wait, morning?”

Jimmy hummed a response, sitting at the foot of the bed. He ran his hand up and down her exposed lower leg, grinning when she growled and squeezed her eyes shut.

“I’m so sorry, Jimbo. I must’ve fallen asleep when I was planning what to get you for Valentine’s Day. God, I’m such a shit girlfriend. I’m so sorry.” Y/N rambled, wiping her eyes and sitting up, inwardly cursing at herself. She dangled her legs over the side of the bed, leaning her head on her hands.

“It’s alright, baby, don’t be upset at yourself. You most definitely are not a shit girlfriend,” Jimmy drawled, crawling up beside her and planting sloppy and loving kisses up her shoulder and back of her neck, “you’re a fantastic girlfriend, whom I love very dearly.”

Y/N hummed slightly, eyes fluttering shut and head lulling back onto his shoulder, exposing more of her neck. Jimmy took the opportunity to pepper steamy kisses on her neck, occasionally sucking on the soft, warm skin.

“I should get going.” Jimmy smirked, getting off the bed, leaving Y/N desperate for attention. “Come on, go have a bath and get dressed.”

Y/N hastily clambered off the bed, placing a kiss on Jimmy’s lips before watching him leave the caravan. How did she deserve such a lovely boyfriend? She smiled to herself before heading to the bathroom.

___

After spending a good hour in the bath, which was highly unusual for Y/N, she got out and wrapped herself in a fluffy towel. Y/N curled her hair tightly and brushed the curls out into subtle waves. She stumbled out of the bathroom and frowned when she saw a light blue dress draped across her bed. It was possibly the prettiest thing Y/N had ever clamped eyes on. She staggered forward, clutching her towel close to her chest and peered down at it, finding a small note.

“Put this on, Love. You’ll look absolutely ravishing, I cannot wait to see you in it. - Jimmy Darling x”

Y/N grinned, cautiously picking up the dress and admiring every inch of it. It must’ve costed Jimmy a fortune. She laid It back down in its original spot, just staring at it. She sighed, contently, and smiled.

____

Y/N was ripped from her thoughts when there was a brief knock on the door.

“Come in.”

The door swung open, revealing Jimmy holding a bunch of flowers, specifically the ones Y/N had previously said we’re beautiful when they were walking around camp.

“Oh, Jimmy.” Y/N giggled, placing down her make up and standing up, brushing out her dress.

“You look even better than I imagined.” Jimmy murmured, more to himself than her, entranced by her beauty.

“Thank you.” Y/N blushed, taking confident steps towards him.

“What’s all this for?”

“Am I not allowed to spoil the love of my life on Valentine’s Day?” Jimmy suggested.

“I feel bad for not getting you anything. You’re totally the better partner in this relationship.” Y/N pouted, wrapping her arms around his neck.

“Yeah, totally.” Jimmy agreed playfully.

“So why must I wear a dress? What are we doing?” Y/N mumbled, placing kisses on his neck and bumping her nose against his pulse occasionally.

Jimmy’s tense shoulders relaxed as he wrapped his arms around her waist, resting his forehead on her shoulder.

“Somewhere.” Jimmy drawled, eyes fluttering shut at the sensation of her warm lips working on his neck.

Y/N pulled away, taking a few steps back until she was over arms-length away from him.

“Best get going then, shouldn’t we?” She teased causing Jimmy to playfully bare his teeth.

Y/N walked past him, swaying her hips slightly, opening the door. She looked over her shoulder and winked at Jimmy before descending down the steps. Jimmy smirked before rushing to follow.


He guided Y/N towards the long grass, causing her to evidently frown. Once they were about midway into the field, the sight of a clearly came to view, a picnic blanket and some candles. Y/N’s heart swelled at the sight, her eyes glistening with tears as she looked at Jimmy.

“I thought we could have a picnic like we did on our first date…” Jimmy blushed, casting his eyes downwards as his cheeks flared with colour.

Y/N let out a small sob, covering her mouth with her hand. Jimmy had really out-done himself. The thought that had gone into the day was heartwarming, sincere and out of complete love.

Jimmy tugged on her hand and took a seat, smiling fondly at her when she took a seat opposite him, still in awe.

“Thank you for the best day ever, Jimmy. It means the world to me.”

“The others helped me out with picking the dress and collecting the flowers and setting this all up.”

Y/N smiled, a stray tear leaking from her eye and cascading down her cheeks.

“Hey, hey, don’t cry.” Jimmy hushed, wiping her tears with his thumb.

“What did I do to deserve you, Jimmy Darling?”

“More like what did I do to deserve you, baby.”

Y/N crawled over to him, placing her hands on his cheeks and tugging her face towards hers, smashing their lips together in a bruising kiss. Jimmy smirked against her lips, pushing her back down against the blanket and continuing the fierce kiss.

“The food can wait.” Y/N rasped, leaning her head back as a moan escaped her, Jimmy placing kisses down the column of her throat before nipping at the flesh.

What's the first step I should take when wanting to start a spiritual lifestyle ? 🌌 ☘

Hmm… Well everyone is unique in their own way, so we all have different experiences throughout our lives. I think the most important thing to start with is your inner wisdom and your intuition. You already have the answers you seek inside you. Just let go of the outside world and release your thoughts to look within and find your Higher Self. Practice meditation as it will greatly help you with this process. Everyone meditates differently, some may use stones and crystals for their metaphysical properties, others may meditate just before bed or right when they wake up in the morning. Just do whatever feels right to you and understand that there is no “wrong” way. As long as your intentions are filled with love and positive energy, I believe you should have a lovely spiritual awakening and an amazing spiritual journey 🙌💖🌼🔮🌿💎✨

The ancient ones have emerged out of the unseen, to remind you of how alive you really are. They have come not as enemies, but to reveal wholeness – to purify and to wash away that which is partial and outdated. Provide safe passage for the visitors of the somatic world and offer them a home for integration.

When you can no longer find any ground in which to rest, you are standing at one of the unique portals to the sacred. While the mind may spin and urgently seek relief, a doorway has opened revealing an important message:

Slow way down. Relax into the shakiness. Rest inside the achy chaos. And infuse the surging material with your care, as it lights up your belly, your heart, and your throat with pure essence. While it may appear that you are longing for a shift, for some ‘transformation,’ and for respite from the unbearable openness, see that you are only ever longing for your own presence.

Dare to see that what is arising now need not be ‘healed.’ You are not broken. You are alive. Allow the trance of ‘healing’ to dissolve into the vastness. You need not be healed. Only held.

You are always being held, though in ways the mind may never understand. Look carefully.

Everybody here is talking about how they can't eat spicy things. Are there any hyposensitive (sensory seeking) people such as myself, who need strong flavors and unique textures? I personally think that stuff is exotic!

I’m sure there’s definitely a lot of people like you! Any followers who feel like this too? (though I think exotic might not be the best word to use since it can sometimes have racist connotations I believe? But I totally understand what you mean)

Also it’s totally possible to be both with regards to different things, for example I’m very sensitive to strong flavours but definitely sensory seeking when it comes to texture, I need variety and love certain stimmy textures like crunchy stuff!! 

There’s autistic people with all kinds of sensory needs with regards to food and all of them need to be respected equally.

GREETINGS.

I OFFER YOU A PLACE IN A TOURNAMENT OF SORTS, A UNIQUE CONTEST, CREATED JUST FOR YOU. THE ONLY THING I ASK OF YOU: BE COMPLETELY OPEN WITH ME. DO NOT FUCK WITH ME. DO NOT SEEK ANY OUTSIDE HELP. FOLLOW MY REQUESTS AND YOU MIGHT NOT END UP DEAD.

Fall in love with yourself first.

And I don’t mean in the cheesy “take yourself out to the mall and blow your money on bath salts and body lotion and new clothes” because that can only take you a few days.

Fall in love with your curiosity, your drive to find out what’s going on in a loved one’s brain, your motivation to seek truth, the very thing that sets life changes in momentum.
Fall in love with your hands, and with them admire the things they make, the people they touch, the power they give you to take care of your body.
Fall in love with your goals—and, whether you carry them out or not, admire them for what they are—your passion in the form of tangibility, the stuff that legends are made out of.
Fall in love with your ability to love, your own unique combination of empathy, thoughtfulness, and admiration of beauty. Know that if love was visible, yours would be a giant array of stars.
Fall in love with the way in which your body works like clockwork—your sleeping habits, your eating habits, the way  your body tells you it wants to keep you safe.
Fall in love with the way you kiss, the way you sigh, the way you keep your secrets. Fall in love with the way you decorate, your taste in food, the way your subconscious works your innermost thoughts into your sleep. Fall in love with your handwriting, the way you sing, the way you doodle in notebooks. Fall in love with your preferences, your growing encyclopedia of memories, the way you catalog admirable traits in others.

And I don’t say any of this because I think you’d be undeserving of love if you didn’t see yourself in this way, or that love wouldn’t eventually find you, or that you’d never be able to be happy. Because, truthfully, I think we are all capable of finding love in ourselves in one way or another.
But, as short as life is as we know it, can you seriously look me in the eye and tell me you wouldn’t like this to happen at your own hand? It is not selfish to want to experience yourself alone; it is not selfish to share the gift of you with yourself.

It’s not that you’d be undeserving of someone else’s love, but rather that you are deserving of your own.

Fall in love with yourself first.

—  we were built for more than just sharing
We are all here for a unique ride

Seeking within is the key, the portal, the path in which all mysteries, light, and love are revealed and why intuitives are brought here to reveal this through their insights, wisdoms of pure inner knowingness, and Heavenly and cosmic truth ~ it is what we all share yet many still asleep to.


There is no judgement, for we all have our path, we are all required to be the mirror reflection of Divine lessons in love, compassion, and self-acceptance ~
What a beautiful ride ~ 


Thank you for this entanglement and connection of light and love,

Spiritual Awakening in the “Real World”

Spontaneous Spiritual Awakening is not the norm. I’m not saying that it never happens, but it is infrequent and unpredictable. If you wait for that magic moment, you may wait forever.

But what if you had the power to quicken your own awakening? There are, of course, many paths to spiritual awakening, and the process is unique for each one of us, but there is one thing that you could easily practice that would exponentially hasten your path to awakening.

I personally spent many decades seeking spiritual awakening. I tried every technique and teacher I could find. There were several times that I believed I had awoken but the “experience” wore off and I was back where I started. Years later on my journey, I would realize that I mistook many mystical experiences for that of true awakening. If I had known then what I know now, I probably could have saved myself many, many years of seeking…

What I now understand is that spiritual awakening is accessible to everyone, and you don’t need to travel to a special part of the world, or do any bizarre yogi tricks in order to awaken. You don’t even need to meditate. Right now, you have the innate ability to wake up.

BTS Learning you had slept with another member before dating

Originally posted by ayoyoongi

Namjoon: Namjoon would probably be one of the most relaxed members about this, however he would definitely proceed with caution when talking about the subject and the incident that occurred, and I think what he would care about the most was the fact that you were being honest with him. He would probably want to have a talk with you and that particular member, just to clear up any awkward feelings and ensure that there isn’t any attraction between you two any longer.

Originally posted by hugtae

Suga: I feel like Suga would initially have a bit of a problem with this just because I think he really seeks deep and unique relationships, especially ones involving romantic love. The fact that you and one of his closest friends had sex and you (and his band member) neglected to tell him until you and Suga were dating would really irk him and he would need a few days alone to digest the new information. He honestly wouldn’t want to hear from you or the member, and when he finally came back to earth he would probably have a serious talk.

Originally posted by jungkooksarms

Jin: This is something that would probably break up a relationship for Jin to be completely honest, he simply wouldn’t be okay with the fact that you and one of his band members used to be friends with benefits. Jin is someone who wants to settle down with a partner, he’s not looking for a quick hook-up or to waste time with someone who won’t see their future with him. He would understand if it happened once and was a mistake, but you would really be pushing it if it was a common occurence. Also he would hate that you happened to tell him now.

Originally posted by hopejungs

J-Hope: J-Hope would be so grossed out because it was his girlfriend and his best friend and neither of you brought it up to him or considered his feelings, he wouldn’t even want to picture such a scene in his mind. He would cringe so hard and shake his head, demanding to know why you hadn’t told him and insist that honesty and trust were such important attributes in friendships and relationships. When he demanded to know which member and you told him, he would roll his eyes and sigh, demanding to know why him of all the others.

Originally posted by ohparkjimin

Jimin: Jimin would probably get emotional because of this and he would want to take a break from your relationship because no one ever told him and he accidentally ended up finding out himself, and he would feel so incredibly betrayed and hurt. It would honestly leave scars on his big heart, and he would have such a hard time getting back into the relationship and in order to do that, you would have to be begging him because Jimin would be really badly affected by this. 

Originally posted by pokpokchikchik

V: V would just be in shock in all honestly, it would never occur to him that you could ever be attracted to any of his best friends, much less have sex with them and then never tell him until much later. It would practically be impossible for him to digest this new information, and he would get slightly sick to his stomach at the idea of such a strange situation playing out in the bedroom. It would take a few minutes to shut his mouth and swallow, successfully coming back to reality as he contemplated what to do.

Originally posted by pangguk

Jungkook: Jungkook would honestly find it so, so incredibly weird that he would be like Jin in the sense that he would want to end the relationship. They’re practically his brothers and he’s barely of age, and the fact that you two had been hooking up behind his back would make him really uncomfortable and that would simply be something that he wasn’t comfortable with. Jungkook would probably break up with you shortly after that and stay distant from that member for a while. 

Dear You,

I know you’ve been through so much, and you try and hide it all away inside yourself and be strong. Acting like nothing can affect you, and you know what; that’s okay.

You’re not the only one who does that. But remember who you are at heart, and don’t ever lose that. Don’t ever forget that. Don’t ever change the beauty your soul possesses, for indeed you are unique.

Nobody can define you, and the only one who’s approval you should seek, is your almighty creator. People have opinions but they aren’t facts. You are beautiful, you deserve happiness, you’ll get happiness but you just need patience.

Keep strong, be brave, remain kind. I promise your time will come.

It’s so easy to get caught up in wanting success, wealth, and fame. If that’s the kind of recognition you seek in life it won’t last, because it’s not authentic. We are here to be of service, to be of value, and to help others in our own unique waysSuccess doesn’t define who we are—it’s only a reminder of what we can achieve.

Hello, this is Shawn, I’ve been over Haley’s house for the last few days and her Tumblr was open on her computer so I figured I’d get some posting done for her. So, brief update:

Haley is beautiful and transcendent. She is a warrior so if you seek to go against her, prepare to be met with an iron will. She is the most delicate and intricate artist, and a unique soul in a world that has become more boring than watching paint dry. She deserves the world for being who she is. 

So that’s basically what’s been going on in our lives. I hope you are all doing well this fine Sunday morning. Love, always.
