Confidence is Tragic, Intuition: Magic

Music. Still photos. Poetry. Prose.

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions. I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality. And it will be the death of me.

What time has ever been a simple time for those who are living it?

—Elizabeth Gilbert (via words-of-emotion)

You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.

We’re almost there and nowhere near it. All that matters is we’re going.

I’m not sure what I’ll do, but— well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale.

—F. Scott Fitzgerald (via petrichour)

On your worst days do not look in the mirror and call yourself pretty. Call yourself trying, call yourself surviving, call yourself learning how to get through a day, a week, a month or year. Call yourself still learning.

I love this picture. Not because it’s Idina, but because it says “I just got done with a show, got ready for the Tony’s in my small dressing room and am now heading over to the Tony’s, where I will preform, even though I’m exhausted from a show.” Every other award ceremony people have hours to get ready in a nice hotel and don’t have to worry about performing right before. I love Broadway.
