THE MAD INSPIRATIONALIST


Hello there, I'm 18 and I love numismatics, photography, and rainy weather. My favourite colour is purple, but at other times is turquoise, or both. I am fascinated by love and outer-space and music, and there is nothing else I'd rather do on a lazy winter afternoon other than read and reread books...but then again, I'd do that any day. I love words and buttons and cats and listening to people, and I'm on a journey to confidence and wisdom and self-fulfillment. It would make me quite content if you'd take the time to follow me into the utmost deepest sectors of my mind, and maybe, just maybe, you'll see what we have in common...

this is your captain speaking, AND THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SHOUTING.

You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.

May you pick up your tea when it’s exactly the right temperature, and may you happen to glance out the window when the light is just how you like it.

“ooooohhh” i say as i still dont understand

Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.
—Winston Churchill

I wish [I could leave my actor persona behind] all the time. A doctor takes their doctor coat off and goes home. Sometimes I wish I could just shed this…. Go down the street and get my own coffee or go into a restaurant and just sit there. A huge part of my life force as an actor is just people-watching, and I can’t do that anymore. That scares me because if I’m going to start running on memories, then eventually I’m going to run out of the memories I had from before I was famous—about how it felt to just sit in a café and watch people who were just talking and not staring at me.

Clouds, oil on canvas, detail (1822)
John Constable

1. If you like someone, wait.
2. Give lots of compliments, even if you’re shy. Everyone else is too.
3. Change. Get a haircut, try new perfume, get new sheets. Become better than you were before.
4. Eat healthier. Learn to cook something fancy.
5. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up.
6. Wear soft clothes, take a bath, drink something warm.
7. Meet someone new, even just a friend.
8. Become closer with your friends and your family. Call your mother. Cry with your best friend. Tell everyone how much you appreciate them.
9. Keep your room clean. Buy some candles. Let the natural light in.
10. Make a list of reasons why you’ll be better off without them. Believe they are true, because they are.
11. Listen to new music.
12. Write everything you’re thinking and feeling. Write letters. Write happy letters, sad letters, and angry letters, even if you’re never going to send them.
13. It’s okay to be sad, but not forever. Sadness is not as beautiful as music makes it seem. Lack of sleep makes your eyes droopy, not deep. Wake up every morning and tell yourself you’re going to have a good day.
14. Go to the library. Don’t forget to look in the music section.
15. Remove them from your life. Get rid of the things they gave you if they make you sad. They’re not worth it. You will never be happy if you continue to hold on to the things that make you sad.
16. Make new memories.
17. Try to find something to appreciate in everything you do or experience.
18. Being alone is okay, you don’t have to surround yourself with people.
19. Become your own best friend. Buy yourself coffee and drink it alone in a cafe. Take your time.
20. Learn to love every bit of yourself.
