Lindsey Stirling takes an unsuspecting crowd on a spontaneous steampunk pirate adventure in her new video,”Master of Tides.” 
Watch this epic live performance powered by 25 wireless speakers and captured by 15 hidden cameras.
“What do you see when you look in the mirror? I honestly used to see someone I didn’t like; there were so many things that I hated about myself. I thought they were all on the outside: my imperfect skin, my cheeks were too big, could I see my rib cage, did my thighs touch… If I didn’t see what I wanted to see I felt like I had no worth. But what I was really afraid of was what was inside. I had to learn to love myself on the inside before I could be happy with what I saw on the outside. I worked really hard to learn to love myself and it started every morning with the mirror. Even though i didn’t believe it, I would look into the mirror and say “you are beautiful, you are smart, you’re a daughter of god…” The same way I learned to play the violin, I practiced positive thinking so I could too love the real me.”

- Lindsey Stirling x

I’m adding this commentary for personal reasons. I struggle with understanding the concept of telling yourself “you are beautiful” even though you don’t believe it. I know that it seems to help a lot of people, but I can’t understand how it would help me. I don’t have a lot of body image issues, but I do struggle extensively with anxiety. Up until now I have just been clenching my teeth and powering through it, but I’m exhausted, and it hasn’t stopped the anxiety. Every day I go to work I’m fighting off a panic attack. I can deal with a panic attack when it happens, but I don’t want them to happen. I don’t want to have a stomach ache every morning before work. Music has a way of inspiring me to try something new, especially when the artist involved is just as inspiring. I’ve been researching/watching/listening to Lindsey Stirling for the last hour or so, and I’ve decided that maybe with her music and story as inspiration I can make a change to how I deal with my anxiety. I will try telling myself things I don’t believe, until I start to believe them.

Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.

When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.

The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…

But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.

the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like “what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless”
