Optimistic Muse
Surround yourself with positive people. But if you can't do that, be your own optimistic muse.


"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."



"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."



"Close your eyes.
From Hook to Jumanji to Dead Poet’s Society
With wonder and fantasy and passion
Your joy became watercolor poetry that filled
in the sun and made people everywhere
believe in themselves and believe in life.
We’ve seen you weep and stand on a desk to view the world differently.
We’ve seen you fight for what you wanted and desired.
Maybe these were just characters, but you brought them to life.
I don’t know your middle name or your wife’s name or how you felt the first moment you realized you were famous or the first time you felt alive,
but I know you were sixty-three when you felt the desks collapse and
the walls close in and suddenly we remembered you were fighting a battle, too.
Suddenly we feel an absence we hadn’t felt before.
Suddenly we feel a sadness we do not know how to describe.
We’re all fighting battles and we realize that with your passing
and we’re sorry you had to leave.
You made us laugh and you made us weep and you made
us stand in our movie theatre seats and raise our fists to a life worth living.
OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN, we will remember you."




"Don’t give up just because things are hard."



Anonymous said: why do you reblog so much pro ahmadi stuff? you arent are you?

all-aamerican:

I actually am one but that’s besides the fact.
I am not Palestinian but I stand with the people of Gaza.
I am not Burmese but I stand for the oppressed in Burma.
I am not Syrian but I am still appalled by the injustices that are happening in Syria.
Simply being an Ahmadi or for that matter, belonging to any group, should not be the reason you stand against the oppression of that group.
I stand against any and all injustice there is in the world.
I can’t even fathom the ignorance you must possess.

They don’t even stop killing Ahmadis in Ramadan with Eid around the corner. They’re going to have to answer to their Creator for this one day and they’re going to have no answer for why they burned down houses of innocent people including women and children and cheered as they died. 

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
