“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.”—Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via psych-facts)
Murakami-sensei puts everything to words perfectly
“Back to the Future II question: If I could go into the past and share all kinds of importantLife Lessons with my younger self, wouldn’t I become a radically different person, and then wouldn’t that person have to go back into the past to tell his young self all sorts of different pitfalls to avoid, and then doesn’t that create a paradox that makes my head hurt?”—

“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”—Thomas Moore (via dopatonin)
There are some things that you have to stop doing to yourself. They’re the things that have been holding you back from moving on to a better perspective.
1. Stop Holding Grudges
Believe us, it would never help. Stop living your life with a heart full of hate. It will affect you more than the person you actually hate. Better let go of him/her, and stop letting others ruin your happiness.
2. Stop Blaming Others
Remind yourself that you and only you are responsible for the situation you find yourself in. Stop blaming others for your problems and better go ahead and fix things for yourself.
3. Stop Spending Money You Don’t Have
Borrowing money and living life on credit cards must be on your ‘stop-doing-right now’ list. Only spend the money you earn or own. There’s nothing wrong in enjoying all the luxuries of life, provided the money is yours.
4. Stop Being Judgmental
Why waste time judging others? Let’s stop being so judgmental and crucifying everyone else who doesn’t seem to fit into our scheme of things. Rather focus your attention in bettering your life.
5. Stop Hanging Out With Wrong People
You are known by the company you keep. Stop spending time with people who suck happiness out of your life. Be in the company of those who inspire you to achieve greater heights.
6. Stop Living In The Past
Past is history, future is mystery; this time is a gift and that’s why it’s called present. Stop wasting time living in the past; rather strive to make your present beautiful.
7. Stop Being Negative
Negativity affects you negatively. Period. Embrace positivity in your life with open arms and stop being negative.
8. Stop Being Idle
Life is too short. Make the most of it by using every moment productively. Stop being idle and make sure you execute your plans in time.
9. Stop Being Jealous
Jealousy leads you nowhere. Explore ways so that others are jealous of you. And that is only possible if you stop being jealous of others.
10. Stop Lying To Yourself
We love to live in denial. Although it’s not possible to lie to ourselves, yet we continue to live in a make-believe world. So stop lying to yourself, and then only you can make your life more meaningful.
Stop doing the above-mentioned things and see the magic for yourself. You would pretty soon realize that life was never so beautiful.
“I definitely believe that when you feel unhappy in a position, dissatisfied with the company you work for, or undercompensated in a role, you need to listen to these shoulds in your mind. However, if you love your job and the work environment, as Tracy indicates that she does, staying can sometimes makes sense. So many people feel unhappy at work, and so few can say that they love their jobs — that’s a luxury to hold onto.”—Colleen Georges, a career coach and co-author of 101 Great Ways to Enhance Your Career
Are you one of those kind of fun loving, active, always-on-the-go kind of people? And do you have a boring, miserable routine on Sundays week after week? If you do, worry no more! With the following wikiHow steps, you can tackle this very…
I wanna try taking a short trip riding a train going nowhere.
Remember those people that raised you, kept you alive, and sent you off to school? Well, they haven’t heard from you in awhile and they’re sort of sad about it. They spend their days puttering around their house, talking about mundane things like yard sales, clouds, and good salmon while you’re living your super cool fun exciting life. You call them and say, “Sorry guys. I’ve just been really busy. Love you so much!” and you really do love them. In your twenties and onward, your parents rock. It’s the time when “loving your parents” is the new “hating your parents.” Perspective and a great psychiatrist are largely responsible for this attitude. But at the end of the day, you can still be super self-absorbed and forget about the fact that someone kept you in their womb for nine months. Use this Sunday to catch up with them and make their year.
2. Exist in a shame-spiraling fugue
Embarrassed by your drunken antics on Saturday night? Did you tell your best friend her boyfriend sucks or send some dirty texts to a guy you met in a deli a year ago, and get no response? It’s going to be okay! Sundays are a perfect day to fugue about the things you have done. Spend 12:00-3:00 p.m. hating yourself, like, a lot. Make grand declarations of abstaining from alcohol and send an apologetic text to deli dude being like, “OMG. Last night was so crazy. A homeless person stole my phone and texted weird stuff to all my friends! But then I went to the homeless shelter and he gave it back to me. LOL!” Around 3 p.m, eat a Chipotle burrito and start to feel better about yourself. Feel your body repairing itself and just feel grateful to be alive. Life’s not all that bad! End the shame spiral and have a celebratory glass of wine.
3. Be bored
There once was a time in your life when not having something to do was the worst thing ever. You felt like you were just waiting for your life to start and desperately wishing for something cool happen. As you get older though, you start to appreciate the nothingness in your life. Life has gotten hectic and caused you to have 10,000 anxiety attacks so spending your day reading magazines, eating Wheat Thins and organizing your closet starts to sound like ecstasy. So go ahead. Be bored. It’s a actually super fun. Masturbate a bunch, catch up on your DVR, and just delight in the fact that you can skip your daily dose of anti-anxiety meds.
4. Go to work
Go into the office to catch up on work without the pressure of a deadline or a nosy boss. Relish in the quiet and be surprised by how productive you can be on a day you’re not required to do anything.
J//K. Don’t do this. ARE YOU INSANE? You must be a workaholic with no social life! NERD FREAK PSYCHO.
5. Forget that it’s Sunday
The days all blend together. It’s dark. Wake up on a Sunday feeling very disoriented and say to yourself, “It feels like a Tuesday…” Fall back asleep. Wake up and go to work only to find that it’s closed. Wonder what it all means and go back to bed.
Collection of fairytales gathered by historian Franz Xaver von SchÃ¶nwerth had been locked away in an archive in Regensburg for over 150 years
This is so exciting! I hope we get to read some of them soon! I love fairytales and folktales (explains my obsession for OUaT), it’s great that we get 500 whole new stories to read, not seen for some time! Amazing discovery!
“People are gonna tell you who you are your whole life. You just gotta punch back and say, “No, this is who I am”. You want people to look at you differently? Make them! You want to change things, you’re gonna have to go out there and change them yourself, because there are no fairy godmothers in this world.”—Emma Swan (Once Upon A Time)
They say that you can tell a lot about a person by the company that they keep. What do your friends reveal about you? Here are some of the things that our types of friends reveal about our personalities:
