BEFORE WE DIVE INTO ANYTHING SERIOUS, I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE –
I did not RE-READ The Hobbit. I RE-WATCHED it. Uhhhh…I AM SOOO SORRY but I just couldn’t wait another day to post this. So, let’s just pretend that this month’s re-read is The Hobbit and ROLL!!!
[DISCLAIMER: As ALWAYS, I am going to be HELLA extreme in this post. If that is not something you are looking for, turn around. xD But if you choose to stay, I PROMISE you WON’T REGRET IT.]
Life advice form THE KING OF ALL THAT IS MAJESTIC AF – Thorin Oakenshield
♥ When in doubt, shout.
This is ACTUALLY quite a handy advice. Most people, who don’t know this trick, fade away in conversations and their confidence takes a back seat. BUT what YOU DON’T KNOW IS, even if you aren’t sure what you should do or say in a certain situation, you can ALWAYS SHOUT AND LOOK PRETTY WHILE DOING IT AND MAKE THEM ALL MELT under your smolder. Now THAT will ensure you won’t EVER have to shy away from ANY conversation or topic.
DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY? Let me just shout my ass off and pretend I KNOW STUFF.
♥ Keep your eyes on the prize and NEVER let ANYONE look you down.
Now, this should be FAIRLY obvious but I feel I SHOULD remind you again –
NEVER LET GO OF YOUR DREAMS.
I mean it.
I mean, so what if there’s a DRAGON sitting on YOUR pile of gold? SO WHAT? Just hire a burglar and get shit done. That’s the easiest way.
Yeah, I KNOW you MAY have to kill some large, ugly-ass spiders along the way and YOU MAY ALSO HAVE TO LOOSE YOUR MIND for a brief period of time BUT NONE OF THAT COMPARES TO THE FEELING YOU’LL GET ONCE IT IS DONE.
And DON’T let people tell you that YOUR QUEST IS FRUITLESS.
What the fuck do they know anyway??? Oh, but if they stoop to as low standards as trying to LOOK YOU DOWN….
STEAL FROM THEM. STEEAAAALLLL!!! Keep their white gems. THAT OUGHT TO TEACH THEM A LESSON.
♥ A well-timed stare goes a looooong way.
DO I NEED TO SAY MORE? ;p
♥ Let others do the talking (BUT ONLY IF IT PUTS YOU IN THE SPOTLIGHT)
Again, one VERY IMPORTANT point Thorin makes here. You see, if you let people talk for you sometimes, it gives you a sense of self-importance PLUS the person DOING the talking FEELS honored from all the faith you have put in him. It’s the most basic strategy – getting people to like you isn’t that hard when you KNOW how to get around it. And OBVIOUSLY, Thorin KNOWS.
♥ Compliment people’s eyes. They LOVE that.
People who don’t ALREADY know this fact should be ashamed of themselves. *judging you*
IT IS A TRUTH universally ACKNOWLEDGED that a person’s heart is reflected in his eyes. You compliment those two vibrant stars and YOU GIVE THEM THE WORLD. YOU MAKE THEIR DAY. And what’s better than making people smile and feel validated? PLUS IT GAINS YOU MORE FRIENDS who will risk their LIVES to get you out of any peril that MAY BEFALL YOU.
♥ Have a smile that can burn through the soul of the beholder. (BUT DON’T LET IT OUT FOR JUST ABOUT ANYONE)
Not EVERYONE’S worth your beautiful smile. NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. BUT know when to let it shine. That is the tricky part.
Most people don’t know when to be a storm and when to be the sunshine.
But once you figure it out, making friends and getting things done will be a cakewalk for you. And a breathtaking smile is the way TO HAVE IT ALLLLL!!
