These are the things that make this being I call my self. These things that hold me together, tear apart, and make me want. I am what I am. Nothing more. Nothing less. I want to know the world. I want to travel, meet people and learn their way of life. Try foods I've never tasted, do things I didn't know existed. Learn new languages and live overseas. I want to be known by others and know them. Be admired and inspire. Do something that improves the world and completes mine. I may never be able do any of these things, but I know that I will try. Given a chance, I'm going to be somebody.

Aleksandr Petrov, - The Old Man and the Sea, 1999

'A wonderful and inspiring adaptation of Earnest Hemingway's story of the same title. Aleksandr Petrov, the one man Army behind this classic adaptation, has achieved so many well deserved prestigious awards for this once-in-a-lifetime movie.' 

"Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine."

Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)

I wish my parents would have read this when raising me
