🔥 A TRUE STORY about Keanu Reeves: 👇
"Most people know me, but don't know my story. At the age of 3, I watched my father leave. I attended four different high schools and struggled with dyslexia, making my education more challenging than it is for most. Eventually I left high school without earning a diploma.
At the age of 23, my closest friend River Phoenix died of a drug overdose.
In 1998, I met Jennifer Syme. We fell instantly in love and by 1999, Jennifer was pregnant with our daughter. Sadly, after eight months, our child was born stillborn. We were devastated by her death and it eventually ended our relationship.
18 months later, Jennifer died in a car accident. Since then I avoid serious relationships and having kids.
My younger sister had lukemia. Today she is cured, and I donated 70% of my gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.
I am one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. I don't have any bodyguards and do not wear fancy clothes. And even though I'm worth $100 million, I still ride the subway and I love it! So in the end, I think we can all pretty well agree that even in the face of tragedy, a stellar person can thrive.
No matter what's going on in your life, you can overcome it! Life is worth living."

Yachid & Yechida by Isaac Bashevis Singer, Part 14: "In the dark all the corpses, men and beasts, lamented their death—howling, laughing, buzzing, chirping, sighing. Some of the corpses staggered, having drunk to forget for a while the tortures of hell. Yechida had retreated into herself. She dozed off, then awoke again with a start. When the dead sleep, they once more connect themselves with the source of life. The illusion of time and space, cause and effect, number and relation ceases. In her dream Yechida had ascended again into the world of her origin. There she saw her real mother, her friends, her teachers. Yachid was there, too. The two greeted each other, embraced, laughed and wept with joy. At that moment, they both recognized the truth, that death on Earth is temporary and illusory, a trial and a means of purification. They traveled together past heavenly mansions, gardens, oases for convalescent souls, forests for divine beasts, islands for heavenly birds. No, our meeting was not an accident, Yechida murmured to herself. There is a God. There is a purpose in creation. Copulation, free will, fate—all are part of His plan. Yachid and Yechida passed by a prison and gazed into its window. They saw a soul condemned to sink down to Earth. Yechida knew that this soul would become her daughter. Just before she woke up, Yechida heard a voice: “The grave and the gravedigger have met. The burial will take place tonight.” "
If you worry more about how you look/board brand/who's skating/ IG clips... MORE than completely focusing on your skate game... When you go out to skate, you're setting yourself up for failure out of the gate. When you ONLY focus on your OWN skating and NOTHING else, you're mentally stronger. You won't feel the PATHETIC need to be noticed by anyone. #truth For my young homies. Cuz they're gonna be days where no one can skate.. and you just wont go as hard... And that shit is the definition of bish. #realtalk
