Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you’ve never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn to drive stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.
I could learn photography. That could be something to want. I could photograph children. I could have my own children. I would give them yellow roses. And if they got too loud, I would just put them some place quiet. Put them in the oven. And I would kiss them every day, and tell them you don’t have to be anybody, because I would know that being somebody doesn’t make you anybody anyway.
“If you take a frog and throw it in a pot of boiling water, the frog will immediately recognize the danger and jump out. However, if you were to put that frog in a pot of cold or room temperature water and slowly increase the heat, little by little, the frog would slowly adapt and have no idea he is dying a slow, drawn out death.”
So terrible to think about, I know. But it’s actually not a bad analogy. If we slowly adapt to our own discomfort over a long period of time, how can we actually know if or when we are truly unhappy? When is it time to walk away from that negative friend or tell the guy you’ve been seeing “I deserve better.” Why do you continue to allow others to take advantage of your work ethic and willingness to “do it all” without any acknowledgment of being spread too thin?
I feel like I have a high tolerance for pain, sweat and hard work, but every now and then you hit that point when you just need to step back and say, “Enough.” Maybe that “point” doesn’t come in the form of a scalding pot of hot water, but it is the moment that you realize if you don’t make changes now, you are letting yourself die of contentment.
I don’t want to end up like that. I deserve better, and so do you. But it’s not enough to just say it any more. Fear is no longer a good enough excuse to stay unhappy. And “tomorrow” will always be there…but will you? Let’s not be afraid to #besomebody who matters; to stand up, to step out and #besomebody who cares.
God did not have time to make a nobody–just a SOMEBODY!

I love this because everybody has a purpose. Sometimes we don’t know what it is, but you can look back and reflect on all the chain reactions and influences you have made in your own life and others’. If anything, I’m reminded that my experiences are building me for my calling. I’m going to make a difference in this world.
First off, you lie…twice.
Then, you lie more times.
I dont think you lie to people you love.
Then u take me for granted. U think ima have your back when the time came but i didnt. You need to learn for yourself. You cant love another if you cant love yourself and right now you are like a stagnant pool of water…unchanging, nothing new. To me thats nothing better.
I cant have this anymore. You need to step it up and make something of yourself. I dont wanna be with someone who cant take care of themself, house, and responsibilities.
I can no longer take you seriously and the intimacy…what you give me, with that alone is getting old. No longer can this be your weapon. You need to go out and DO something. Surprise me, make me proud because all you been doing is dissapointing me and setting me up with false hope. I believe in you but you never pull through.
I cant love you if you cant love yourself. Point blank period(like this one—>).
Sorry but no more Mr. Nice guy. He overstayed his welcome.
Multi-million selling US sensations Boyce Avenue – and Guinness World Record holders of ‘Biggest Independent Band in the World’ on YouTube – have unveiled their brand new single ‘Family‘ which is taken from the groups upcoming album ‘Road Less Travelled‘, due for release on April 15th and available for pre-order from February 12th. It is their first full-length record since 2010’s highly praised ‘
do you ever feel like you just want so badly to make a difference in this world? like you want to be that person that everyone aspires to be? I don’t want fame and fortune, I don’t want everything I’ve ever lusted after, I want to be a role model. I want to be someone that somebody else can base their life after, is that too much to ask?
All of Shaikh’s talk was fairly typical #TechBro self-mythologizing and TED Talk inspirational crap, but his platitudes define the company he’s built. Without the “spread your wings and fly” / “don’t be afraid to be a champion” rhetoric, #BeSomebody doesn’t really exist—the company’s branding is literally all that it offers. Well, besides a map built around user GPS data to locate fellow “passionaries” (a feature presumably built by dudes, because it’s hard to imagine women thinking, “If some strange dude followed me to HEB because he saw that I liked karate too, that would be awesome”).
And the fact that all they have to offer is branding might explain why the #BeSomebody team reacted so unprofessionally to being mocked by Austin High students. In February Shaikh posted a hilariously defensive post on the #BeSomebody blog called “You Have No Idea What PASSION Means,” in which he spends seventeen paragraphs digging in on his attempt to talk down to the Austin High students and teachers who criticized his presentation and ridiculed his message. (McGee, in her post at KUT, screen-grabbed a pair of all-time great defensive tweets from Shaikh in response to an Austin High student; in another tweet, #BeSomebody content director Alex Dorner called an Austin High teacher a “dork” for “talkin’ shit.”)
Okay I want you to look into the mirror even if it hurts look into the mirror look at yourself then look deep into your eyes do you see the person from when you were a toddler to now think of the bad and think of the good think of the mistakes then think of the lessons learned think of the days you were week then think of the moments you were strong I think your strong just by waking up to another tomorrow for breathing for just looking at yourself you have to realize that life is a gift that not everyone gets to have that’s why they call it the present we need to live in the now forget the past although it will come to you and surprise you, you must show no fear because it’s just a way of testing your abilities and once you show no mercy you will have proven yourself your able to conquer the world by storm you just need to think that life could be worse because it could but if you don’t put aside yesterday to make room for today you won’t ever have room for happiness to come into your life and you can’t let sadness affect the person you are trying to become because every rose has it’s thorns just have to look past them and be true to yourself and find the beauty within.
Well one day 3 years ago , I decided I would spend all my money on one important thing that would change my life forever. The future isn’t written in the future , it’s written in the past . What you will have in the future is based on how hard you have worked in the past . Every moment in the past counts towards your future. I decided I wouldn’t let the ship sail pass me once again and do nothing . Like everyone else , I joined the youtube community to do something I love and nobody could of predicted I would come this far . It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t all luck either . It was years of hard work. I struggled a lot in the beginning , but over the years it has made me a stronger person . Youtube showed me that any one has a chance in becoming somebody but you have to really work for it. Perhaps because it wasn’t easy , it made me realized how much more I appreciate the success I already have . I don’t have a million subscribers yet , but it isn’t impossible if I made it this far from zero subs. Not sure anyone is reading this at all , but if you are , you are welcome to drop by my channel and put #tumblrSquad on any of my videos so I know you came from Tumblr. I hope everyone has a great Sunday . My channel is 👉🏼 Wendiness
He de confesar y juro que ningún de esos labios, se comparan a la esencia que han dejado los tuyos sobre los míos, ninguno de ellos deja su suavidad y penetra hasta lo más profundo de mi ser, dejando clavado un inolvidable sabor y una forma a la cual mis labios no sé adaptan a los de otra persona, sólo a los tuyos.
