whatever we can do they can sometimes do better

Still Proud / Conor Maynard

Request:  Heyy can you write an imagine where y/n fails a college project she’s worked on for a couple of months and conor tries to cheer her up? Thank you :)


“Well, what’s up with you?” You heard Conor’s voice say. You didn’t lift your head from your hands. “Seriously, what’s wrong?”

Sighing, you finally looked up at your boyfriend, revealing your tear stained cheeks, making him worry even more. Conor crunched down and you, sniffling, pointed towards your laptop. He took it and sat down at the end of the bed, to read your professor’s e-mail.

“Oh, babe.” He said, leaving the computer to his side and opening his arms for you.

You got up from the chair and sat on his lap, his arms instantly wrapping tightly around you, as you let out a sob hiding your face in his neck. You couldn’t believe this was happening, not to you.

“I don’t get it.” He said, barely over a whisper, even though it felt like a scream on the silent room. “You worked so hard on this, for months!”

“Apparently not hard enough!” You sighed. “What am I gonna do now?”

“Never really went to uni so I don’t really know.” He chuckled and you smiled slightly. “Can’t you do something to compensate it?”

“I don’t know. I can ask the professor if I could do something else.” You said, looking at the floor. “I’m so stupid, so so stupid.” You cried, hiding your face in the crook of his neck.

“Heyheyhey, you’re not stupid, this could have happened to anyone and today it happened to you. I know it doesn’t seem fair but it’s just how things go, sometimes we do well and sometimes we don’t and it’s okay.” He said soothingly, rubbing your back. “I’m sorry baby. What can I do to make you feel better?”

“I just want to cuddle and take a nap and cry, can we do that?”

“Of course we can.” He nodded. “I’ll order some food, you put something to watch on Netflix, whatever you want. I’ll be back.”

You got under the covers after losing your laptop and watched for a show to watch on the T.V, once you picked one you got comfortable in bed. When Conor came back he cuddled you under the covers.

“Ordered your favourite.”

“Thank you.” You smiled slightly.

“And just so you know, I’m still proud of you. I will always be.” He whispered in your ear. “I love you.”

“I love you, too, Con.” You said as he kissed your cheek.

Creating Your Character

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that we here at SOC believe there are no rules when creating an original character. Everyone has to follow their own process and their own path to create characters that make sense for themselves and their stories! However, today I’d like to take a moment to talk to you about a couple ways you can get started on that new character you know you’re supposed to be working on. Remember, these aren’t hard-and-fast rules - these are suggestions!

One way to get those creative juices flowing is to brainstorm. What does this character need to do in your story? What’s their purpose for existing? Warning: if you can’t answer these two questions, you might not really need this character, so think carefully! Consider what kinds of personality traits would be beneficial for filling their role, or what traits could cause conflict and complicate the story. Think about where they must have come from to end up where they are today: if you need a character to be the evil CEO of a company trying to steal your protagonist’s designs, you’re going to have to explain how the evil CEO got to be where they are somehow, and why they’re doing what they’re doing. Brainstorming can be kind of a chaotic approach - I like to call it throwing ideas at the wall and seeing what sticks - but if you’ve been stuck for a while it might help! Just make sure to write down everything you come up with without judging it right now. You can always refine your ideas later, but you have to be able to remember what they were!

A more visual approach to character creation is starting with a mental image of the character. Imagine their face, their clothes, how they walk, how they stand…and then dig into the details and try to use those things to figure out who they are. A character who walks aggressively could be confident, or they could be scared. A character who slouches might spend all day in front of a computer or might be trying to disappear. What is the character wearing? Yoga pants could mean an athlete or a couch potato or someone running errands, while a tuxedo has totally different connotations. This is similar to brainstorming, but you’re using the character’s appearance to extrapolate their personality and/or history instead of their role.

If you need a more methodical approach, try making a list of all the things you think you really need to know about your character - this is where a lot of profile worksheets start, so if grabbing a blank profile worksheet works better for you, do that instead. Next, fill in the things you already know about the character, whatever those things may be; you might only have a name, but it’s a start! Once you have the information you already know down, you can start filling in what you don’t know. Some of these things might be hard to figure out until you actually start writing about the character, and that’s okay! Just do what you can for now. The downside to this approach is that sometimes we get so caught up in filling in the blank fields that we forget to make sure that everything connects back to the character to form a cohesive whole, so make sure you read it over a few times and look for places where you can tighten it up!

Finally, for some people, all this planning in advance just doesn’t work. If you’re one of these people, you might feel kind of frustrated when you sit down to make a new character by any of the previous methods. That’s okay! Look, some of us can only figure out what we’re thinking when we start getting it down on the page. If you need to write character sketches or go off-track with your story to figure out who your character is, that’s totally fine, and it’s a completely valid way to create a character! This approach is a little more organic and a lot more hands-on, because the character grows directly from your imagination and your story without any kind of framework to latch on to. You might want to take notes as you figure things out, but don’t be afraid to experiment!

However you choose to create a character, whatever you do, just make sure that it works for you. Don’t forget: you can write as many drafts as you need to, so it’s okay if the character you create now isn’t exactly the character they will be in your final draft! Characters, like stories, can evolve over time. They can be polished up, broken down, put back together, polished some more. You can add things or remove them, or even just alter whole aspects of the character as necessary. Make some mistakes and learn from them, and whatever you choose to do, don’t stop writing! Good luck!

Viria!!!! I have a problem ;-; when I draw (I'm not very good in some opinions people have given) I feel as if drawing isn't meant for me but I want to be able to draw as good as you(you have been my inspiration since, I think, 2009.) Do you have any tips? Or advice? I reaally like to draw....but I feel untalented when I try

I’m just gonna…screencap you my favourite moment with Oikawa which is one of the main reasons I relate to him so much and generally find his character very inspiring.

When it comes to drawing or any other ~creative~ activity, many people give up halfway. Or not even reaching the halfway point. Simply because it all always involves the word “talent”. They look at people so much more “talented” than they are and think they will never have it. They will never be as good.  They don’t “feel” talented, or they keep being told by other people that they aren’t.

I can’t really blame them, probably the most common compliment “good” artists get is just how “talented” and lucky they are. Not how hardworking, not how stubborn, but how talented. It’s all about it.

And I kind of…don’t believe in talent. Or I chose not to.

Obviously there is always natural predisposition for something. Some people are simply born on the higher level than you were and it feels like you will never catch up to that level, because they always improve faster, they see things better, they just are. But talent is really 99% hard work and 1% actual talent. Someone with natural ability alone may not go the far ways comparing to someone with lots of experience behind their shoulders, even though they might not have started as good as someone with natural ability.

I don’t know if I have tips or advice decent enough for you, but I think the best thing is to unlearn how to believe in talent, and start believing in yourself. Keep drawing…and keep drawing, regardless if you think you’re talented or not. Regardless of what people think. You might not have so called “talent”, but you can always create it within you.

I said it before, but I guess I will just repeat myself by saying I always view someone who is better than me as a challenge…and a goal. The same way you can choose to feel about people who think you aren’t good enough for that - to prove them wrong. Maybe it will take years and years until you finally feel like you’re able to tell them “SUCK IT, LOOK AT HOW GOOD I’VE GOTTEN”.

Draw as much as you can and be patient. (obviously sometimes we don’t have time or motivation or simple will to do ANYTHING, but whenever you feel like you can push yourself through - do it).

If “talent” is a seed you’re growing, don’t expect it to grow overnight. Keep watering it and don’t neglect it. And one day you will see the flowers bloom, and on another you’ll be able to taste fruit.

Try to look up tutorials and draw whatever you see around you, it always gets better when you start UNDERSTANDING what you’re drawing and how things work, how they are built. I’m someone who is learning academic drawing\painting in the university, so I’ve found out SO MUCH from my professors, but if you don’t have it, it might be good to try looking up books. You won’t immediately get good by reading it, but you’ll start being more cognizant of the process itself. It’s only recently that I have been starting to feel like I understand it better.

Because skill is skill, but drawing is also a lot of thinking, to which books will add up to.

And…don’t give up, I guess. Don’t be discouraged because you don’t feel talented, because someone else is better, or because your work isn’t good just now. Think about that day in the future that it will get good. The day you’ll finally be able to get yourself a little golden star and write “I did it” over it. Though even then, most likely, there still will be something more to learn, because it’s a never-ending process.

All about BINDINGS!

Hi! I like saying hi because it’s nice and not a binding and – oh, right! I’m Jay. But if you’re reading this (or hearing it, like I do with text-to-speech) then you probably know all that. Charlie says essays don’t start like this but I’m ‘splaining and not essaying – it’s more a saying, see? :) – and I’ve never done this before at all. Charlie is editing it so this won’t have my lisp in it that might confuse people a little bit. I – oh, right. She says I don’t need to thank her in this too. Man. This is hard, but I’m doing it because of a binding and friendship so it’s fun, too.

Okay. First stuff: I’m not human. I’m from far Outside the universe where things are scary and I don’t like to talk about it much. So I won’t. I ended up in it by running away from things that wanted to eat me by becoming friends with a magician I call Honcho and Charlie, who is my friend too and said I can leave it that when describing her or this might get way too long. Right now my eyes don’t work, and that’s a way-too-long story too but I’m going to use the word ‘see’ for bindings anyway even if it involves a lot more than eyes. Did you know that humans smell before they see and don’t describe smells well because smelling is more primal and humans use vision to describe lots of things? (That was me being all kinda smart!)

I see everything as bindings. Magicians do, too, but I see way down into the core of things and maybe below that; it’s hard to be sure, since I can share what I see but humans can’t process it all according to Honcho. Charlie said this will go bad if I use words like ‘quantum’ or say ‘everything is connected’, but I don’t get the latter because if everything was, bindings wouldn’t hold things together. I’m not sure what a quantum even is. Anyway! Everything is itself. You are you (you could even be the randomgirl who asked me this :)) and I am me and we’re made up of the what make us us instead of being anyone else.

Charlie and I talked it over with words, and she said I have to now explain it better than those words. Also that I didn’t need to tell you we did that. (Or say this, I bet :)) Everything is itself, complete, whole in what it is. You are you, we are now. The word is. We are. Humans have trouble getting that part, but I’m not sure why. Everything that isn’t you is everything else – sometimes a someone else – and bindings are what hold it all together, how you decide what is important to you is based on what you bind to you. Like good memories and bad ones and friends and enemies and humans break bindings a lot because they can only have so many at once. Like there’s only so much attention or so much of you to go around? Like that. Not like that, but a little bit like it.

So! Friendship is a binding. It can be small or big or huge and it’s where you expand who you are to include other people and they do the same to you. So you’re you, your self, changes. I mean, it doesn’t, because you don’t stop being you – that would be silly! – but your understanding of who you are changes, I guess? It’s not always easy and sometimes people don’t want bindings, even with me :( (I had Charlie put that bold because it’s a really sad face.) Oh. Charlie said I can explain it like the idea of a ‘true name’. That if you know someone’s true name, you can control them, only that’s not real at all. It’s more than connection, because it’s a binding. You connect part of you to someone, and they can do the same if they want to and – and – and you can be friends :) Like we are!

(Charlie said I couldn’t end that with more than one exclamation mark.)

If you’re me, you can make bindings Do Things: like I could bind a door to me so it opens without touching it, or snow to someone so that a snow ball hits them really hard but humans mostly don’t do that. Even magicians don’t; their bindings to the world are more asking it to do things and the world saying yes, but I don’t need to do that since my bindings work on deeper levels. Charlie said it’s like everyone else uses computer languages while I speak in machine code, but I don’t know what that even means. I’ve never even tried to talk to a coffee pot except that once and the explosion wasn’t that big. (It turns out coffee pots can work really fast like microwaves if you ask them to, but it’s pretty smelly and explodey a lot.)

So, to me, friendship is an Important Binding because it means you make someone part of your life and they make you part of theirs in turn. It’s not easy-peasy as some bindings are, but that’s part of what makes it important? And to humans, if something is hard, that’s what gives it power so they use bindings badly sometimes. You make hope into a weapon and friendship into a wound and I don’t really have words for what you to do love, but it can be pretty mean and not-nice in many not-nice ways but you can be really good too. You can make bindings without even wanting bindings back at all and that’s really huge and special and I get all happy inside like a warm burp. Charlie says that’s not the best word to use, but humans don’t really have a word for that. Kitten or puppy maybe? I dunno. I just know bindings are what I am and humans can do them and I try and help humans to do them better so we can all be awesome!

Because, because being Jay can be a bit scary and sometimes even boring and being able to share with others is important, so we tell stories and learn from stories and stories make the world a better place by being shared, because they can be like a free binding that the reader shapes into whatever they need the story to tell. It’s like that. Is that okay? Charlie says I should say bye now, so bye!

Happily Pregnant - #1 Baby Talk

This is a pregnancy series based off of my Be With Me So Happily series. (I will get a link to that soon in case you haven’t read it!) 

It’s been almost two years since you and Harry had gotten married. You were living in London and LA part time with the occasional stay in NYC. Harry and One Direction were about to go on tour in a few weeks and you wanted to talk to Harry about something before he went. 

Harry had just gotten home from the gym, while you were cooking some dinner. After a shower and change of clothes, Harry joins you downstairs. 

“Hey baby.” He smiles kissing you quickly. “Dinner smells amazing. I’m starving.” 

“I take you had a good workout?” You smile. 

“I did, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get in a bit more cardio later tonight.” He smirks. 

You roll your eyes. “We’ll see. Now, get us some plates.” You giggle. 

He laughs walking over to the cabinet and setting the table. He grabs a bottle of wine and you both sit down to eat dinner. 

“So, are you looking forward to tour rehearsals?” You ask. 

“I am.” He nods. “I’ve missed being on tour and being with the lads. I’m gonna miss you though.” He pouts. 

“I know, but it’s only a few weeks and then I’ll be on tour with you.” You smile. 

“True, but I’m still going to miss you regardless.” He says taking a sip of wine. 

You nod picking at your food. 

“Okay, what’s up?” He asks 

“What do you mean?” You ask. 

“I mean there’s something up with you.” He says. “What is it? Do we need to talk about something?” 

“Sort of..” You say. “I just wanted to bring up a subject we haven’t really talked about in a while.” 

“I’m all ears.” He smiles. 

“We’ve been married for two years now. I’ve written another book and I’m working on a new one right now. I know that you and the boys are getting back into touring and everything, but I was just thinking about maybe we could look into having a baby.” You say. 

Harry looks up to you with a smile. “Are you saying you want to start our family now?” He asks. 

“I know it could take awhile especially with the whole IVF thing, but first I want us to actually try and see if we can do this naturally without treatments.” You say. 

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for trying naturally.” He smirks. “But did the doctor say it was a slim chance for that to happen?” 

“She did and that’s why I’m thinking maybe we could give it a few months and if it doesn’t happen then we can look into the treatments.” You say. “What do you think?” 

“I think that whatever you feel comfortable with, I support. If you want to try without treatments at first, then we can try.” He smiles. “I want nothing more than a family with you and I can’t believe that it’s finally come time for us to start doing it.” 

“Me either and I know that it might seem like bad timing with tour and everything, but I started thinking that if I were to get pregnant sometime soon then you would be finished with tour once the baby was born, which to me works out better than if we were to wait until later.” You say. 

“No, it makes perfect sense besides me being on tour is part of my life, so we’ll just make it work.” He smiles. 

You smile. “I love you.” 

“I love you too.” He smiles. “I can’t wait till we see a little one growing inside of you.” He smiles. 

“Don’t jump the gun too much. I’m not pregnant yet.” You giggle. 

“I know, but the thought just makes me smile.” He smiles. 

“So, we’re doing this, right?” You smile. “We’re going to try for a baby?” 

“Damn right we are.” He smirks giving you a thumbs up. “I think now would be a perfect time to start, don’t you think?” 

“What about the dishes?” You giggle. 

“Eh. We’ll get them later.” He smirks. 

You laugh getting up from the table. Harry picks you up, throwing you over his shoulder and rushing to the bedroom for some baby making time. 

Sometimes I think the problem with how we approach Ramadan is that we fixate on what we can’t do, when it’s really about what you can do: to be better, to be more patient, to be kinder. Focusing on not eating or whatever limits our horizons on what Ramadan can be, and more importantly, what we can be.

kyungsuga  asked:

exo reactions to you being really sad and tired, and they try to comfort you :D this seems very typical, i dont know if youve done this before. thank you!! ^^

Xiumin: *since you’re really tired and have almost no motivation to do anything he decides to make the bed as comfortable as possible for you after eating breakfast with you in the kitchen* “there, you have a fresh set of sheets, blankets, pillows, and everything” *he’d say as he carried you to the bed, what you didn’t expect though was for him to climb into bed and snuggle with you* “I don’t know what else to do so I’ll just cuddle with you here until you feel better if that’s alright with you”

Luhan: “I’m not sure if this will help cheer you up at all but I figured that I could give it a try and see” *he’d show you a large, beautiful rose that he’d gone and bought at a flower shop for you that he hid behind his back* “even if you weren’t feeling sad I’d still buy this for you because you deserve all the things that are beautiful in this world to remind you that I love you and you’re the most beautiful person in the world to me”

Kris: “alright, time to watch some cheesy Disney movies and eat tubs of ice cream in the living room again” *he’d say as he lifts you over his shoulders to carry you to the living room* “we’ll watch movies and tv shows together and eat our hearts out while you rest your head on my lap and I caress my hands through your hair until all of your sadness goes away”

Suho: “even though your in pain because of all the sadness you’re feeling, believe in yourself and believe that soon all of the sadness and tiredness that you feel now will go away and before you know it, you’ll feel much better”

Lay (feat: you as luhan) : *one way that Lay knew how to get you to laugh and forget about the sadness you feel was to blow air onto your neck and ears then kiss your neck* “I’m not going to stop until you’re happy again”

Baekhyun: “nope, nope. no… there’s no way that you’re allowed to be tired and sad at the same time, wanna know why? Because you’re the most amazing person on this earth: you’re talented, beautiful, smart, strong, kind, and you’re my partner…. all of those things are reasons why you should be happy and if there’s anything that’s bothering you then please tell me so that we can get through it together. I’m here for you but I know you can get through this”

Chen: *he’d sneak up on you as you were beginning to fall asleep while you were sitting on the floor and would wrap his arms around you in a tight bear hug* “my y/n should never feel the way they feel now, don’t worry, I’ll just cuddle the sadness out of you until there isn’t any left”

Chanyeol: “you know I love you right y/n, and you know that you’re beautiful. Please don’t stay sad for too long and please don’t be so tired, I want my precious to be happy and healthy” *cue kisses on your head with some light snuggling*

Kyungsoo:*he’d have an entire speech planned in his head to say to you that would hopefully comfort you but all he could muster once he sat next to you was* “is there anything I can do to  help you feel better?”

Tao: “you know why you shouldn’t be so tired or sad y/n? because we’re the fab couple and you can’t be fab if you’re tired or sad” *tried making you feel better but totally failed*

Kai: “it’s OK to be sad  and tired sometimes but whatever you do please don’t cry, if you start crying then I’ll start crying and then none of us will be able to stop.”

Sehun: “whatever it is that happening right now we can both solve together. You don’t have to deal with this on your own if you don’t want to, if you want help then tell me and I’ll do my best to help you out OK? I love you y/n, please don’t be so tired and upset anymore”

~Savie

she is the sunlight (yoongi)

It’ll always be nice to look back and think of her.

Word Count: 2.1k

She lives in a daydream
           Where I don’t belong

She was there, and it was beautiful.

“Are you okay?”

“No.” He snapped, looking away.

“Are you going to be okay?” She pressed.

“Why are you still here?” He changed the subject, scowling.

“Because I want to be.”

“You’re not going to get anything out of this.” Yoongi warned, rolling his eyes and looking away,

“No.” She replied, solemnly. “But you need me here. So I’ll be here.”

Even during the rough times, and even during the nice times. She was there, and it was beautiful.

Umm…. hello, i guess?

How are you now? I hope you did fine, just like the last time we met.

No, actually, i hope you are better.

But unfortunately, i heard that you are not.

That you got some problems to be solved.

That you got some hard situations to be faced.

That you got some difficult decisions to be made.

If just something that i could do to escaping you away…

But it’s not how’s the life works, right?

Sometimes, we can’t do whatever we want even we could.

Sometimes, we can’t have whatever we need, because it should.

And sometimes we can’t get to the place that we hope, even we would.

I always wondering, were you read my post? No, were you even know my site in this platform?

Because if you are,

you would see how i talk about you a lot.

How i let my reader(s) know how adorable you are.

How i adore you that much.

How it feels to hit you by words. Just because i can’t hit you by hands.

And how thankful I am to let you became my muse.

I know you could face every phase in your life.

Like you did, and so you would.

Good luck

Break a leg.

Life is tough but so you are.

You know, as you were saying,

“if we are mean to be, we would”

And until then

See you !

“Patient defies doctors and walks again/survives/etc...”


No, that’s not how it is.

You have no idea how amazing it is to see someone walk out of your ward when only recently you were having ‘bad news’ conversations with their weeping family. You have no idea how many team members; paramedics, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, SALT, healthcare assistants, radiographers, pharmacists etc worked together as a team to help each patient get better.

Nobody wants to tell someone that they have a serious or life-limiting illness. Nobody wants to answer the question ‘will I ever walk again?’ or ‘How long have I got?’ These are amongst the fundamentally hardest questions to answer because there are so many unknowns. All we can do is be truthful if the odds aren’t great, with as much tact and support as we can muster. And then try our best, as a team which includes the patient and their family, to do what we can with whatever circumstances allow.

Sometimes, that leads to amazing things happening. But, let’s get this straight, our patient miraculously walking again or beating cancer etc is not defying us, and the weird way that our language always sets it up as if doctors are ordering you not to succeed in getting better is really bizarre. Acknowledging that an illness may have permanent effects or claim someone’s life isn’t betting against them.  Language matters, and setting health up as a battle in which we are opposing health is problematic, because it encourages interpretations of doctor-patient roles which aren’t particularly helpful to either side. We’re meant to be a team, not a power struggle. We are not betting against patients, we are actively rooting for them and working pretty hard to make sure the best possible outcome is more likely to happen.

And we do that for the love of what we do, and because there’s nothing like seeing someone really sick, who you feared wouldn’t make it, turn the corner.

How to Feel Good Now Even When You Don't

Let’s listen in on a common conversation we sometimes have with LOA…

“I know that the Law of Attraction is always working, and I know that I am using it right now and all the time.”

“But I’m going to keep telling LOA a diarrhea flow of every single thing that I don’t like and that I don’t want.”

“I’m going to keep talking about these things every day, I’m going to keep complaining about them every day, and not so I can find the positive opportunities within them - or so I can clarify what I would like better…”

“But because I want LOA to match these bad feeling vibes I’m sending about what I don’t want, and then somehow magically send me more of the opposite.”

“So if I’m feeling bad right now, instead of accepting it as a part of the variety of life and letting it flow until I can make a positive conscious shift…”

“I’m gonna add more fuel to the fire because that’s the true reality of how things have been…”

“And even though I know truth is relative and just a belief, and that a belief is just a thought that I repeatedly think…”

“Ima do it anyways…”

“Because even though adding more negative fuel to the fire makes me feel worse and worse, I still somehow think that this is the approach that will shift things for me.”

“Even though I know at some point I have to eventually feel better in order for things to change, Ima still do it this way.”

Sometimes that’s what we do to ourselves.

Right?

It seems hard to feel good right now when you don’t feel good right now. That’s pretty obvious. But whatever you choose to do will be adding momentum to something whether you want it or not.

So if you can allow the negative thoughts and feelings to flow until they loose momentum and slow down, and accept them for what they are…

You can then begin shifting towards something that feels better as your are consciously able to.

Yeah, you might be seeing that you don’t have what you want right now…

But nothing changes until you change perspective and change how you feel. Things change when you change the way you look at them.

LOA responds to your now vibes. It responds to whatever you are focusing on right now.

Doesn’t matter if that’s how things have been in the past, or if that is how things look right now. If you keep thinking about things like how they have been, that’s how they’ll continue to be.

Because that’s the input that you are continuing to give to LOA.

So do your best to find anything that feels a little better and helps you shift in positive and healthy ways.

Keep in mind that there are people who have much worse circumstances than you do right now.

ESPECIALLY if you are able to read this blog at this time.

So, maybe not having what you want “right now” isn’t as bad as it looks.

Maybe not having what you want right now is exactly what you need to inspire you to change your perspectives and adjust your vibes…

So that you CAN have what you want naturally and easily.

Isn’t that a better-feeling thought?

So keep going that way.

If it’s exaclty what you need to inspire you to adjust in this moment, then proceed to talk about how nice it is to know that you are being inspired to make those adjustments.

Now, you can, from that better-feeling energy, be more able to allow what you want to flow to you.

Don’t run from your negative thoughts. What you resist persists. Instead, accept them for what they are. And then dind the opportunity of equal or greater benefit within them when you are able to.

Don’t continue to fuel them with more negativity, or by finding things that feel even worse to focus on. Instead let them fizzle out by giving them less and less energy.

Adding negative feeling fuel to them will just perpetuate what you don’t want to happen.

The negative thoughts are literally showing you where you are blocking the positive flow of what you DO want.

You will see this as a true blessing if you look at it from multiple angles.

And if you respond to it effectively.

So do what resonates with you to do to feel a little better and then to feel a little better in positive and healthy ways.

All you have to do is find thoughts that feel a little better and start building that momentum as you are able to.

No need to try to be positive all the time. Just tip the scales a bit and things start flowing very well.

In this moment right now, you have more abundance than you even recognize.

Think about that. Put it into perspective.

Peace be with you.

So how many of you really love fall out boy? You know when you say that, you’re also saying ‘I fucking love myself.’ Because if the people we were ten years ago can grow up and do something cool like this, you guys can do whatever shit you want. You can sing or make movies or blog or whatever you’re into- keep doing that. But just know that it’s up to you to do that for yourself. You have to create your own happiness because no one else is going to do that shit for you. You have to do it yourself. And sometimes before it gets better, the darkness gets bigger.

Oh, man…. I don’t know if there are really words to describe it. I try not to read too many comments, but when I do it’s overwhelming support — even on days where sometimes you don’t feel it. The haters can be… they can really get on your nerves, I guess. I don’t mind people talking badly about me or whatever; it’s when I feel like it has to do with race that really kind of bothers me. So, having WestAllen supporters and people who are out in the world who are progressive and are willing to see storylines like that really makes me feel better about our society as a whole, that we can have that kind of relationship on television, that we can send positive ideas to young people watching our show. It’s important that we keep moving in that direction on our show.

NEW ADMIN NEEDED!

As some of you may or may not know it takes a lot of work to run a confession blog. There are currently 3 admins who run this blog and for a while that was enough but the popularity of this blog keeps growing (thanks to all your tremendous support) and it’s getting hard for us to keep up with you guys, especially when we’re receiving 300 plus confessions in as little as 24 hours.  This blog is nearing 25k followers and we have decided to give one of those followers a chance to be a new admin to beaconhillsconfessions!

There will be sort of an audition process to try and narrow down who be the best fit to make part of our team. 

Some of the qualities that we are looking for in our future admin/admins are:

  • Somebody who can work great with the other admins.
  • Somebody who will be able to quickly pick up on how we run this blog.
  • Somebody who will be dedicated to this blog and will be able to time manage themselves in order to get confessions done.
  • Somebody who is willing to answers questions from our followers and do so politely and inclusively. 
  • Someone who has their own ideas for the blog and will help us to continue to make our blog better. 
  • Somebody who is familiar with photo editing and can make edits 
  • somebody who can handle hate mail. Yes we do actually receive those sometimes.
  • Somebody who is not bias. No matter what we agree on or disagree on, whatever we may personally ship or not ship, We post EVERY confession that passes our guidelines, no matter what.
  • And obviously, someone who watches teen wolf every moonday.                   

If you believe that you have these qualities and would like to apply for the position, these are the instructions on how to do so

THIS IS THE APPLICATION FORM 

1. On the application form, there will be a set of questions, answer them truthfully please.

2. Set up a page in which you will showcase your graphics like a portfolio. In this page you can have edits, gifs… whatever you believe may impress us, or you can post the graphics and edits and tag them a specific tag so that its “yoururl.tumblr.com/tagged/adminapp" however you MUST have 4 confessions edits. So we can see how well your confessions will look on our blog. Please have a credit stamp on all your graphics (at least your confession edits) so we know you are not stealing from other sources. There will be a space on the application to give us a link to your page. 

3. Dont be alarmed if we contact you during the process just to talk. Since we are like a family here, we will like to get to know you guys personally as much as we could so that you feel comfortable with us. 

We will be taking applications from Monday July 28th until Monday August 4th. We will officially select our new admin on Thursday August 7th and they will be contacted through email and announced publicly on this blog. 

For any questions or concerns dont be afraid to contact us. We have been through this too before. Do so through our fanmail and we will try our best to reply ASAP

Good luck! <3
