That perfect girl is gone. Here I stand in the light of day. Let the storm rage on! The cold never bothered me anyway.
“Snow is an opportunity, because it’s a white canvas. It’s a lighter’s dream, in that the lighting is the color. The local color is minimal at best in all these snowscapes, so it’s all about the lighting. We consider it a blank canvas that allows us to actually paint with light. We’re having a lot of fun with that.” - Lisa Keene, Frozen assistant art director
try to wake up happy. drink water. take long showers until your skin gets wrinkled. wear cute underwear. look at old pictures to see how much you’ve grown. grow your hair out. cut your hair off. find a perfume that smells how summer feels. if scales are your enemy, get rid of them. make your body strong, not perfect. challenge yourself to say three nice things about yourself each day. don’t compare yourself to others—they are not you. they will never be you. get rid of magazines that make you feel bad.
learn to love spending time with yourself. take yourself out to dinner. take yourself to the movies. take yourself to a museum and look at the pieces without having to stick to anyone’s schedule but your own. wear clothes you love. wear colors. smile at strangers. they will smile back. make small talk. don’t worry if people think you’re weird for asking the cashier how their day is going. give compliments. learn how to accept a compliment. organize your closet. get rid of clothes that remind you of negative points in your life. get rid of things that remind you of negative people in your life.
walk more. read more. sit outside more. feel the sun on your shoulders more. take pictures. you have a beautiful life. you have a beautiful soul. document it. make sure you are in the pictures. sing in public. realize that you see hundreds of faces every day and of those faces, approximately none of them will remember that you tripped walking up the stairs this morning. forgive yourself. even confident people get embarrassed. everyone gets embarrassed.
remember that no one ever knows exactly who they are. it is okay to feel lost. it is okay to feel confused. it is not okay to berate yourself for feeling that way.
love yourself. love others.
The first person Sherlock cared about was his dog.
When Mycroft is talking to Sherlock about how he cares so much he says ‘Remember Redbeard?’
Sherlock’s childhood dog died so now sherlock doesn’t get attatched.
“He’s sweet, I can see why you like having him around. But then people do get so sentimental about their pets. They’re so touching and loyal.” - Moriarty
"An anomaly which often struck me in the character of my friend Sherlock Holmes was that, although in his methods of thought he was the neatest and most methodical of mankind, and although also he affected a certain quiet primness of dress, he was none the less in his personal habits one of the most untidy men that ever drove a fellow-lodger to distraction.
…when I find a man who keeps —- his tobacco in the toe end of a Persian slipper —- then I begin to give myself virtuous airs.”
