When you screw up, skip a workout, eat bad foods, or sleep in, it doesn’t make you a bad person.
It makes you human.

"When she was unhappy she would lock herself in the bedroom until she felt better. ‘It’s none of your business,’ she told him. ‘I don’t want anybody to see me when I’m like that. He used to call her a clam. ‘Open up,’ he hammered on all the locked doors of their life together, basement first, then maisonette, then mansion. ‘I love you, let me in.’ He needed her so badly, to reassure himself of his own existence, that he never comprehended the desperation in her dazzling, permanent smile, the terror in the brightness with which she faced the world, or the reasons why she hid when she couldn’t manage to beam."
— Salman Rushdie, “The Satanic Verses” (via lifeinpoetry)
So my sister is sick and vegged out on the couch watching Breaking Dawn part 2. My dad loudly objected when he walked in because between her and I, it’s either Twilight or Harry Potter round the clock regardless of health status. Somehow, he still has no idea of the basic storyline for either franchise.
Now, fifteen minutes later, he’s sneaking peeks from the kitchen and gradually inching in to the family room.
I keep hearing things like:
"She’s riding a wolf! That wolf is too big, that’s some bad graphics right there."
"Holy—- why are they running so fast?"
"HE RIPPED HIS HEAD OFF, AWESOME!"
"Okay, sure, humans can split the earth with their bare hands."
"Ohhh, I understand. She’s showing him bits of history.. In her…. Mind… Wait—"
"Oh it was the future? Oh, so it hasn’t happened yet. So he has the power to elect a different outcome. So he’s like, the good guy."
"Ron we should get go—"
“Hang on, I want to see how this ends!”
My dad. He’s pretty much the best.
"Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion."

All in the mindset, people.
