Alive, America, and Asian: did you know? Photographer Diana Kim, whose father abandoned her when she was 5, wanted to document the lives of the homeless. Searching for subjects on the streets, she came upon a thin and distant man in rags who looked somewhat familiar. It was her father. By fate or by chance, she'd found him after 25 years. PHOTO: DIANA KIM DIDYOUKNOWBLOG.COM did-you-kno: He had schizophrenia. He didn’t recognize her. She did everything she could to connect with him, but he refused treatment, medication, food, or new clothing. Eventually, he said to her: “Diana, I am so sorry for not being in your life. I am so happy that you have a family of your own now. Do better for them… … Don’t worry about me or what everyone says about me. If you want to make me proud and happy, be there for your family the way your mom and I never were. Stop trying to save everyone…just worry about yourself and your family. And don’t forget why I named you Diana, you are the light within the darkness.” So she refused to give up. After suffering a heart attack, he agreed to get help and slowly took control of his own life. One day he suddenly called her to invite her out for coffee. Later that afternoon, she wrote on her blog: “I feel like I just met my father for the first time today.” “I struggled to reconcile my feelings toward my father’s absence in my life, while continuing to care deeply for him and other homeless individuals.” “Over time, I learned to navigate through my feelings of desperation and became more vocal in my community about my father’s condition and what it’s like to watch a loved one battle mental illness.” He is now doing very well, and they are rebuilding their relationship from the ground up. “So long as we are alive in this world, every day is an opportunity to take hold of that ‘second chance.’ There is no failure unless you give up, and he never gave up. And I haven’t given up on him.” Source

 Happy News!!! Today after work I went to tractor

 yes and he asked me how I planned on keeping them
 warm during the freezing temps that are on the way.
 He mentioned he had chickens and turkeys and we
 talked a bit. I then proceeded to tell him why I was
 buying the heat lights. He said awe, "my dog ran

Anaconda, Another One, and Beautiful: there's so much diversity in this new kids movie "Storks". this makes me so happy 🌌To Louise - Louise, you are a beautiful and amaZING person. You are always there for me if I need to rant and you are one of the most selfless and generous and caring people I know (even though you get a bit crazy around fire and you know... arson). You give the most heartfelt hugs and I never ever dislike being around you because of your general fantastic aura of happiness and calmness. Gee, I can't remember when I first met you! It's like I've always had you around as a friend. I know you're facing a few troubles with body positivity and family issues at the moment so I really hope that they both clear up very soon. And you're always free to talk to me whenever you want about anything. I love you loadssss 🌵🍉 To Jake and Sharmi - two of my favourite internet friends in the whole world!!! You guys never ever fail to make me smile. You're both kind and brilliant people, and I always look forward to replying to your messages and speaking to you. I really hope to see you soon - hopefully in August although I understand that there are a few complications standing in the way and I don't mean to intrude or anything - because you two are just so fabulously amazing!! I am so happy to call you guys my friends :,) I love you two so muchhhhh 🌹To Josh - I've already written an enormous rant to you tonight so I won't bother you with another one - at least not one which took a few minutes to send. You are a great human being, and your actions are made with amazing intentions. I know you don't feel 100% happy with yourself and I'm sorry that I can't show you the brilliant person I see you as, but I am immensely proud that I can call you my friend and I get to talk to you practically daily. You're kind and smart and funny and an all-round incredible guy. I reeeeaaaally want to go and see you but I know that'd most likely not happen for a very long while :( I love you to the moon -Chance 🦋
