Shawn Thornton vs. Mark Fraser
There was a lot of screaming at the bar. Mostly from me.
WAY TO END IT THORTY AND REMIND ‘EM THAT BOSTON AIN’T GOIN DOWN EASY.
i’ve decided to accept the years gracefully, not to stumble with each entrance of a new month, not to hesitate at sun rise.
i’ve decided a wistful existence is better than a hopeful or hopeless one. it’s a game still dreaming fruitless dreams - yes - dream, dream, dream. always dream. but gather strength in dreaming, don’t let the dream consume you. don’t let the attainment or lack of attainment stop you. ever.
i want to grow more gentle. they say we live a harsh, violent world of extremes. in our youth, we are perhaps as intense in our passions as all this upheaval but they say time mellows us, but it seems to stagnant some. i want passions that are deep, deep, deep as the ocean floor. not unreachable. but you have to pass through calm waters to find the tips of those, the tallest mountains.
i want to accept the unobtainables. the nevers. i want to swallow that pain like the sweet, dark nectar it is and hold it inside me - just to remind me that i am alive - not to let it turn sour and embitter. our world has an unfortunate habit of pointing out what we don’t have - lets swallow our have-nots! look at the have’s! grow giddy in them, let your head spin as you let yourself fall - only to roll in them.
laugh at your troubles, but gather strength from them.
laugh at yourself, your ridiculous moment of time. there will never be another.
breathe. inhale, exhale. feel from the tip of your head to the tip of your toes. oh your body is magnificent, no matter the scars. the human is a chance out of a chance out of a star.
speaking of stars - when is the last time you looked at the sky?
in love? revel in it, but don’t show it off. keep it near and dear. treasure it. soak in those moments, as you soak him in.
not in love? i won’t pad some comforting lie of “someday.” are you still living? do you laugh? find your own way. a relationshipless life is not the end of the world. and it does not mean its loveless. it could be a more tender, wholesome love - of friends, family, strangers and home.
keep breathing. smell the air. smell clean laundry. smell your shampoo.
laugh more. rejoice in the small things. be reckless and ignore fear. actually wink for once.
dance! oh dance, dance, dance till your toes, ankles, and heels are completely covered in tingles. there is no greater joy than the human body in motion.
weep when you need to. but understand tears must dry - even if you have to wipe your face a thousand times to stop yourself. draw yourself in and then out.
i will say it again - rejoice in the little things. be gentle. be kind. laugh. dance. sing. repeat. look at the stars! look at how far they travel to you!
don’t despair at age. don’t hesitate at sunrise. accept the years gracefully.
I have been waiting all year to post this.
This has been in my queue for months.
I missed it last year and I vowed that would NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.YES
omg i didnt reblog this last year!
I just realised: THATS WILLIAM SHATNER!
Omfg ok I literally just came on Tumblr to find this to reblog and it was the first post that loaded on my dash that is weird af ok
Dad told me he really likes the FBI guy, the Boston head FBI guy, because he was acting like a true masshole.
“We ah gonna catch these idiots. I want to cry, but then I’m like, then the idiots win, so I just get back to work.”
Every time I feel myself crushing inwards a bit, that quote pops into my head.
Boston Strong. Not giving in.
25 days of myfitnesspal eating about 1200 cals/day and doing kickboxing/jogging fairly regularly and I’ve only lost 2.6 pounds. 3 pounds in a month is too little wtf is going on.
Help. Help now please.
Christine, I am going to punch you in the face if you keep indulging in this self pity bullshit. You are better, stronger, and more beautiful than this. Don’t come onto tumblr to whine about WEIGHT LOSS. 3 pounds in a month is good, it’s healthy. The slower you lose, the more likely you are to keep it off. You work in the health field, you know this. I say this out of love, because I am your friend, but I swear to god, you need to take a goddam breath and stop being so shitty to yourself, it’s SO MUCH MORE UNHEALTHY than eating bad. (I know, because I fall into it too, all women do.) God girl, I love you, stop this. Stop it now. You are starting to make me concerned.
And if you are that concerned and want to lose faster - cut out as much carbs as you can (though note - you need them for heavy exercise or you will pass out - take it from me, it took me three times to learn that) as well as empty calories like beer and fried foods. Alcohol is the main problem for most Americans when losing weight.
Also, did it occur to you that you might be putting on MUSCLE and that’s why your weight hasn’t dropped significantly? Muscle, as we all know, burns more calories than fat. It’s probably a combination of you putting on muscle and you know - it only being a goddam month of working out.
And I hope you know that I didn’t mean to come off mean or bitchy, because I know we all have our ~fat days~ and doubt ourselves and hate ourselves, but seriously girl. You are beautiful, smart, and cool and I’m glad you are my friend. But I know where you live and I will kick your ass. I’ve had a wicked long week, lol. All of Boston has.
Be nicer to yourself, dammit!

I guess he did do that a lot, come to think of it.
Boston Bruins and first Responders
This was a grassroots movement by fans to have the first responders take part in this yearly year-end ceremony instead of just random fans.
We are one Boston. We are Strong. Boston Strong.
