Society and school has taught us that we have to be “perfect” to have self-worth.  But “perfect” is a myth.  NO ONE IS PERFECT.  You hear that saying so many times in life but stop and really think about it.  That hero or celebrity you look up to, they make mistakes just like you and me.  They have to fumble through all the awkward lessons in life, just like you and me.  No one starts off at a level of “perfection.”  Jim Carrey, one of my heroes, taught me an important lesson.  He likened life to a film in which the working title was “I’ll Never Be Good Enough.”  He said that we should have faith that we will achieve what we want to in life, without worrying how it comes to pass.  “Your need to be accepted will make you invisible in this world,” he said.  "Open the door in your mind,” he added.  “So that when it opens for you in the real world, you’ll just walk right through.”

Normally I watch each episode of Game of Thrones twice, to make sure I didn’t miss anything and because I like to. I just can’t bring myself to re-watch ‘The Mountain and the Viper' though. I'm not ready… I'll never be ready.

I’m with you…I’m still in mourning!  I think I’ll wait another week or so…I was so on edge the entire time that I don’t think I  actually got to enjoy and admire The Red Viper’s awesome spear technique.  I was hiding behind a pillow a lot…lol  But I don’t think I can watch the very end where he gets crushed.  I’ll stop the episode before that happens
