Ah, Mood Swings

He is a deep thinker.
 
When I began learning about Robert Downey Jr. in June 2012, while "getting to know" him, I had several preconceived ideas about who he was. Of course, I have since forgotten most of them!! {I did see Robert Downey Jr. as being tough. You know, the Pit Bull-owning type. This dude has repeatedly been to prison, for Heaven's sake!! I never would have seen him as a sensitive, Buddhist hugger!! And this was before I learned about his past, mind you.} However. One thing about Robert Downey Jr. that immediately surprised me the most?

He is a deep thinker.
 
I mean, really. This man is profound!! Because, my gosh, some of the things which spring forth from deep within his soul!! I suppose, if you travelled the wayward roads which he did {Don't even think about it!!} you, too, would be a deep, profound thinker. But, this revelation still took me by surprise. He was not always a deep, profound thinker. This has come with years of experience, continued evolution, therapy, and sobriety. If you look past seemingly everybody's type-casted notions that Robert Downey Jr. and Tony Stark are equals--please stop--then you may actually learn something from this comedic actor!! Seriously!! You know what? I have lost count of how many Robert Downey Jr. quotations have really changed me as a person for the better. And which ones still are. I have been experiencing some wild mood swing-infused pity parties lately. Riding them like a terrifying, amusement park roller coaster. So. The other day, I was watching Robert Downey Jr. YouTube videos solely for his witty, quirky, dry sense of humor in search of some good laughs. Robert Downey Jr.'s dorky, eccentric mannerisms. The witty things he says. His comical facial expressions. He delivers laughter every time!! Every freakin' time!! And I love him for this!! But, while watching a YouTube video as he was out "selling soap", or promoting "The Shaggy Dog", I did not expect something deep and profound which he said to jump out at me. Whoa. I must be in a vulnerable state of healthy soul-searching right now.... Here is the quotation.
 
"You've got to adjust yourself to life, and you'll finally be happy." --Robert Downey Jr.
 
Well said, Robert. Well said.

I think it does you good to watch someone you like and admire when you are feeling down. It always makes things seem a bit better. Robert Downey Jr is right, we are just little boats on a great big sea of life and have to go with the flow.
