All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken:
The crownless again shall be king.

This is beautiful.
Although I know I was born in the wrong time myself. When being a gentleman is not desirable but the a**holes are, you just know you’re in the wrong area. People that actually stay together and work things out; reading as the man tears fall from my eyes lol.
This is what I want I know I deserve this 


Exactly. When you know it’s right, fix the little things and work it out. I hope I’m with or find someone who feels the same and is always willing to work things out for the betterment of each other and the relationship. Through thick and thin.

This is a homeless guy who lives on a bridge in Dublin City. Last week his rabbit was grabbed from him and thrown into the river below.. the River Liffey. Which is one of the most horrible rivers in Ireland. The currents are really strong and it’s filthy.. Anyway, as soon as the rabbit hit the water this guy was already hurdling off the bridge and towards the freezing river to save her. After hitting the water and successfully locating her, he proceeded to pump air back into her, making her regain consciousness and basically come back to life. I was talking to him today along with another woman and she asked “Why in the name of God did you jump into the water? Did you not think about it?!” and straight away he replied with “No. I didn’t stop to think. I just jumped. It was an instinct.. I needed to save her.” For saving the rabbit, he was given the ‘compassionate citizen award’ by the charity Aran.  The guy who threw the rabbit in the river has been charged with animal cruelty. The homeless man was also given carrots for his rabbit and dog food for his dog. They also offered him a job.

Tip for managing anxiety: Believe in something! It might be religion, it might be your family, or it might be the love and passion you have for your work. It might be all the things I just mentioned together. Studies have shown that when we believe in something it helps provide us with the meaning and the motivation to push through life’s tougher times. Remember, if you have a “why” to live for you can tolerate any “how”!

Alright, its been a while since my last update. 

I have been pretty consistent with 30DS. However, I have to admit, I’m getting really bored with it. 

Not in the way that its easy for me now or anything—I still sweat my butt off every time I do it. Not even in the way that I’m not seeing results—because I am. 

I just find it so difficult to do the same thing day in and day out. I don’t know if thats just something wrong with me or what.

Lately, I’ve been thinking that I’d rather go for a walk or run or cycle, or do something other than the shred, but I’m so stubborn that I haven’t been allowing myself to do that. 

Im still debating at this point whether to mix it up and just keep 30DS as a sort of “staple” in my workout routine, or just keep trying to stick through this rough patch. 

Basically, I can’t tell if my boredom is valid or if Im just being lazy. 

Another hinderance though of keeping up with the shred to a T, is that Im headed to Las Vegas in just a few days here for a week’s vacation before school starts. Im staying at a friends house so I’m not sure how its going to work….just do the best I can I guess. 

Decisions, Decisions.
