"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."-Roald Dahl (via ceedubbb)
"I love people who’ve had torture in their lives, and still rolled their sleeves up and got to the other side - having gotten through some of the dark things in life, I am entertained by the little bent view some of us have of the world."
Happy 45th birthday, Matthew L. Perry! [August 19, 1969]
make me choose » anonymous asked: luke and lorelai or lorelai and rory
my ultimate inspiration comes from my best friend, the dazzling woman from whom i received my name and my life’s blood, lorelai gilmore. my mother never gave me any idea that i couldn’t do whatever i wanted to do or be whomever i wanted to be. she filled our house with love and fun and books and music unflagging in her efforts to give me role models from jane austen to eudora welty to patti smith. as she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, i don’t know if she ever realized that the person i most wanted to be was her. thank you mom, you are my guidepost for everything.

never doubt my ability to watch the same episode of something ten thousand times and remain just as interested and entertained every single time
"If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart… where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again."-Julia Brown, Everwood. (via positiving)
“You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it."

You’re gonna have to take the bottle, sweetie, ‘cause your mom’s asleep and she’s exhausted, all right?
Rewatching parenthood with my mom, and I’m enjoying every minute of it. Can’t believe this next season will be the last. I’m really gonna miss this show.
"You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud."-Beardsley Jones: Make yourself proud. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
