I am not a courageous person by nature. I have simply discovered that, at certain key moments in this life, you must find courage in yourself, in order to move forward and live. It is like a muscle and it must be exercised, first a little, and then more and more. All the really exciting things possible during the course of a lifetime require a little more courage than we currently have. A deep breath and a leap.

The fact that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen are best friends in real life makes me so happy

x

My goal is to find a friendship like this with someone special. 

They are just so beautiful.

We have tendency to define ourselves in opposition to stuff. But try to also express your passion for things you love. Be demonstrative and generous in your praise of those you admire. Send thank-you cards and give standing ovations. Be pro-stuff, not just anti-stuff.

Three years today since my dad died. Shame he never knew me as an adult (I was 19) because I’m a bloody great one. He died of a sudden, out-of-nowhere stroke while I was at VidCon and he was at home in London. He was out of it straight after but still kind of there and then he died a couple of days later. 

1 in 5 strokes are fatal & annually, worldwide, approx 15 million people have a stroke. To help work towards making these statistics less depressing, read up on The Stroke Association here: http://www.stroke.org.uk

Gloves and boots are left to dry in the treatment area in Guéckédou, Guinea. After being in the the isolation zone, clothing and boots are disinfected with chlorine. If contracted, Ebola is one of the world’s most deadly diseases. It is a highly infectious virus that can kill up to 90 percent of the people who catch it, causing terror among infected communities. Because Ebola is highly contagious, staff treating patients suffering from the disease must wear protective equipment to prevent transmission.

Patients await consultation at a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) clinic in M’Poko camp near Bangui airport in the capital of Central African Republic (CAR). Today, nearly the entire Muslim population in the western half of CAR has left in just a few months. Several enclaves under the protection of armed international forces in Bangui, Carnot, Boda, and Berberati still shelter a few thousand Muslims, but their living conditions are precarious and they have few prospects. Now confined in ghettos, this portion of the Central African population still faces daily threats. Most people believe it is too dangerous to go to the hospital or move around town. While the hospital remains functional, there is little access to it, and MSF has referred 14 emergency cases by airplane and ambulance to hospitals in Bangui and Bria. Read more: http://bit.ly/1std1C2
