It was absolutely exceptional! Charile Todd tells his incredible story about doing something because it feels right, and then chasing that feeling the rest of his life. The documentary was uplifting and incredibly inspiring. It made me reflect about some of the decisions I have made in my life, and really admire the risks that some people take to pursuit happiness, art, and life in general. It’s definitely worth checking out and available to rent or purchase on iTunes.
WOW! What a ride! 2013 is going to be very difficult to beat. This year held so many milestones for me and my extended family. I purchased my first home, visited Disneyland and South Padre (I had never been to either before), my brother started a brand new career, my parents celebrated 28 years together, Dez had a gorgeous baby girl named Scarlett Winter, and my little tamale Cash turned two. 2013 showed me that I had much more love to give than I could ever imagine. Even through the frustration of the lows, 2013 was so devastatingly beautiful that I will always have a special appreciation for the people and events that made this year so wonderful. 2014, it’s your move, man.
“As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a God. I don’t think there is a God, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a God. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different God, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.”—Ricky Gervais: “Why I’m an Atheist” (via setbabiesonfire)
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—Nelson Mandela (via karavanderbijl)
