Conceive the buildings in imagination, not first on paper but in the mind, thoroughly, before touching paper. Let the building, living in imagination, develop gradually, taking more and more definite form before committing it to the drafting board. When the thing sufficiently lives for you then start to plan it with instruments,

Since my surgery, I’ve made my physical and emotional health a priority above all else. Whether it’s on my own or through guided meditations on YouTube or Headspace, I find that those few minutes a day of clearing my head & centering myself make a huge difference on how my day goes.

Below is a 2 minute guided meditation Agapi shared with my Hello EveryGirl squad. The beauty about it is that you can do it anywhere, and after 2 minutes you feel refreshed, de-stressed and centered.=)

Leroy Neiman 1921

His surname is that of one of his stepfathers; during his childhood his biological father abandoned the family, and his mother, whom he described to Jerry Tallmer for the New York Post (May 9, 1981) as “a very spirited woman, ahead of her times,” later remarried twice. Raised in a rough blue-collar St. Paul neighborhood, early on LeRoy Neiman became a “street kid,” in his words.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Neiman “in market terms (is) a bigger success than Rembrandt — or any other painter. He is the first sports artist of America. More significantly, Neiman is first by so far, nobody knows who’s second.”

“I got a problem with spending before I get it” from All Falls Down

Until you have the money in your account, don’t spend it. Don’t bet on getting a big refund check, or a job bonus or gift money for a special occasion.

If you plan your budget on money that you are not completely certain you will receive, you may end up in a tight predicament and acquire debt.

Malaysia’s censorship board claimed the film was “definitely unsuitable” for public consumption after viewing the film and seeing that the plot revolves around Zoolander being brainwashed into murdering the Prime Minister of Malaysia. In 2012, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson met the actual Malaysian Prime Minister. There were no incidents.

“Survival can be summed up in three words – never give up. That’s the heart of it really. Just keep trying.”

This motto sums up Bear’s attitude to life and adventure – never give up. His pursuit of adventure and Guinness World Records are inspirational to many, and he now actively encourages ordinary people to take on adventurous and survivalist goals.

Remember Why You’re There

So much goes into planning an epic adventure that it’s easy to get distracted—or even discouraged—by budget, logistics, travel, and mishaps. Don’t forget why you’re there in the first place. We adventure to seek discomfort. Those other steps are all part of the process, but once you’re out in the wild, it’s time to focus on being there. Get lost in the spirit of it all.

In 1987, Prince built a sixty-five-thousand-square-foot, ten-million-dollar recording complex in Chanhassen, Minnesota, and called it Paisley Park. It was intended to be a commercial facility—Madonna, R.E.M., and Stevie Wonder all recorded there—but by the end of the nineteen-nineties it had stopped accepting outside clients. Eventually—no one can quite say when—Prince began living there. He wanted to establish a self-contained dominion, insulated from interference or judgment, where he enjoyed total control, and his life could bleed easily into his work.

On April 21, 2016, Prince collapsed and died in an elevator at Paisley Park. He had overdosed on the opioid fentanyl, which he’d been taking for chronic hip pain. He was fifty-seven, had sold around a hundred million albums, and did not leave a will.

Nathan Hale 1755

Guard against your own weaknesses: A more experienced spy would never have fallen into Rogers’ befriending trap, but Nathan did. As we’d learned, Hale did not inherently have the ability to deceive, and he perhaps felt a secret, non-deceitful bond with Rogers, a fellow American soldier. A worldly Hale could have guarded against this gullible weakness of his, but he didn’t. There was one other flaw that Hale may have had that was left from his Yale college days. Though pious, it’s reported that Nathan still liked alcohol. It’s very plausible that Robert Rogers, a well-known life-long alcoholic, bought some drinks for Hale that night which possibly could’ve opened Hale up for a more confidential and damning conversation. Rogers invited Hale to breakfast with him the next morning. Hale accepted for some reason. Rogers was setting the scene to spring the trap.

HE LIKES PLAYING SUPPORTING ROLES.

Though he emerged as more of a leading man in the early 2000s with movies like American Splendor and Sideways, Giamatti is content to play a supporting role. “I think you’re given more license to have fun, in a way,” he told The Guardian of being a supporting player. “You’re supposed to be more vivid, your job is to be more eccentric. I think I just like it better. There’s something about working in a smaller space that I’m more temperamentally suited to.”

George III, when ill, often repeated himself, and at the same time his vocabulary became much more complex, creative and colourful.

These are features that can be seen today in the writing and speech of patients experiencing the manic phase of psychiatric illnesses such as bipolar disorder.

http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-22122407

The warning signs of bipolar disorder can generally be divided into those for mania, and those for depression.

7 signs of mania

Mania can cause other symptoms as well, but seven of the key signs of this phase of bipolar disorder are:

  1. feeling overly happy or “high” for long periods of time
  2. having a decreased need for sleep
  3. talking very fast, often with racing thoughts
  4. feeling extremely restless or impulsive
  5. becoming easily distracted
  6. having overconfidence in your abilities
  7. engaging in risky behavior, such as having impulsive sex, gambling with life savings, or going on big spending sprees

7 signs of depression

Like mania, depression can cause other symptoms as well, but here are seven of the key signs of depression from bipolar disorder:

  1. feeling sad or hopeless for long periods of time
  2. withdrawing from friends and family
  3. losing interest in activities that you once enjoyed
  4. having a significant change in appetite
  5. feeling severe fatigueor lack of energy
  6. having problems with memory, concentration, and decision making
  7. thinking about or attempting suicide, or having a preoccupation with death

Allen Ginsberg 1926

Depending on who you ask, Allen Ginsberg was a songwriter, a photographer, a political gadfly, a gay rights advocate, or the founding poet of the Beat Generation. He was also one of the most divisive figures of the 1960s, described as either an “ambassador for tolerance” or, as his FBI file reads, a “politically dangerous subversive.” But whether you see him as a force for good or evil, he was unequivocally—a force that changed American literature forever.

But Cooper is okay with not receiving an inheritance, telling Stern, “I don’t believe in inheriting money. I think it’s an initiative sucker. I think it’s a curse.”

*I love this attitude by Anderson Cooper, but it’s got to be easier said than done. Avoid “initiative suckers” in your life, and make your own money.

Though Marlon Brando was reportedly Kramer’s original choice for John “Joker” Johnson, Tony Curtis diligently proved himself the better choice in the role. In his autobiography, Curtis recalled, ” At first they said I was too good-looking for the part; I didn’t look enough like the a**hole “n*gger-hater” I was supposed to play. So I wore a false nose and made myself look uglier.

Just as her husband realized that his every action might set a precedent for future presidents, so Martha, too, was aware that her behavior as first lady would become the template for the wives of future chief executives. One of her most important steps was to initiate a weekly reception, held on Friday evenings, for anyone who would like to attend.

Now that he’s opened up about his own battle with depression, Brady is grateful for the outpouring of support he’s received.
