Arkiv for oktober 2012

1. I believe in sleeping in. I believe in giving 100% when you only have 80%. I believe in jamming out by yourself in the car. I believe in kisses on the forehead. I believe in smiling until your cheeks hurt. I believe that you can have just as much fun sober. I believe in taking chances and making mistakes. I believe in having someone tell you that you’re beautiful. I believe in swinging on swings and running in the rain. I believe in miracles and random acts of kindness. I believe in saying hello to anyone and everyone. I believe in second chances. I believe that everyone’s lucky to be alive. – Unknown

2. I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains„ deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know – unless it be to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide. – James Kavanaugh

3. I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances. – Martha Washington

4. I like making connections with random strangers – interesting ones. Ones who want to change the world without becoming a footballer’s wife or a porn star. Life’s all about meeting interesting individuals who you come across in ways that you’d never expect. Like the time I was on a flight back from Barcelona, I noticed a really pretty looking chubby Slovakian girl who seemed to be traveling on her own. In the waiting time before the flight, she wouldn’t look at anyone, wouldn’t smile and she had a face as sour as anything. Then, on the plane, I just happened to sit next to her and thought, here we go – two hours of silent irritable treatment. Instead, she suddenly became this amazingly animated joyful human being and we talked, and laughed the whole way back. People make judgments way too quickly. We’re too obsessed with technology, phones and computers and shit, to talk to each other face to face these days. Put the thumbs down, and let’s talk people! Stop using your latest 7300 flip phone GPS and have a proper conversation. So Marta, if you are reading this, get in touch (your number went in the washing machine along with my jeans but I’d love to hear from you.) – Naomi Campbell, Skins

5. I don’t want to be told who I am or who I should be. I want to find myself, the bits and pieces that are scattered in places and in people waiting to meet me. If I fall down, I’ll learn how to pick myself up again. You need to fall apart once in a while before you understand how you best fit together. – Katie KacvinskySecond Chance

Fire av veldig mange fine låter fra Ellie Goulding’s nyeste album “Halcyon”. Hør. Og Ellie er virkelig bare helt, helt fantastisk.

Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria (Germany). Noe så eventyrlig og vakkert. Åh. Nei, hit har jeg virkelig lyst til å dra en dag.

1. I love that feeling. You know, the one you get when you take a deep breath and suddenly everything feels like it’s going to be okay. When you’re hopeless as can be, and life is going nowhere, there’s those moments we have every now and then where we just stop, and we get this feeling, that can’t be described, but you just… You just feel like everything really is going to be okay. Like the world stopped spinning for a second, and everything was clear. I need more of those moments. – The X

2. The best thing for being sad is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then – to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn. – T. W

3. Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you. – Dream Hampton

4.The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesn’t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will. – John Green

5. One thing we do know: Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment. – Eckhart Tolle

Åh. Denne akustiske versjonen, av den ellers fantastiske originalen, har jeg virkelig ikke ord for hvor vakker jeg synes at er. Hør.
