Super dreamy Neal Caffrey

Ok, I am a week late to the news but for those of you who haven’t heard, the super good-looking Neal Caffrey from TV crime drama White Collar, aka Matt Bomer, is officially out of the closet. (Whee!) And the 34-year old actor is happy and comfortable talking about his husband and children in public. (Yay!)

Yes, this is news to me because I have never thought Caffrey was gay and yes, I have the biggest crush on him. I love his hair and his sartorial style on the show so much that I really REALLY want to look like him. Maybe that’s why my gaydar wasn’t working. I mean, look at this guy:

And look at that SOFT FLUFFY HAIR (and his chiselled jaws). How can anyone not want hair like that? I know I desperately do.

I just want to accentuate those soft curls again. Sigh.

Previously, Bomer was reticent about coming out. In a 2010 interview with Details magazine on his love life, Bomer said: “I don’t care about [rumours] at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life.”

Two years later when accepting an award for his activism against HIV/ AIDs at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards on Feb 13, he thanked his partner, Hollywood publicist Simon Halls, and their three children from the stage.

He said in his acceptance speech: “I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry.

“Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment.”

HOW FRICKING SWEET IS THAT? Guess he knows there’s nothing to hide.

Here is a photo of him and his doting partner (the typical older distinguished gentlemen sort, if you ask me):

Here are their three adorable kids:

What a happy beautiful family and they look so sweet together. Seeing happy couples makes me happy. We need more good-looking gay people like Bomer to come out and show the world it’s okay to love whomever you want and be happy together, no matter what society thinks. Your thoughts?

This is the sign

I woke up bleary on Saturday early morning trying to motivate myself to continue my revision. Gosh, I really love my sleep and forcing myself to stay awake at 7am is always going to be a struggle. After several mental push-ups, I finally shut my alarm off and sat up to face reality.

But to warm up, I had to scroll through all my social networks and read some of the day’s news before getting down to the serious stuff. And I came across this article below and I WAS BLOWN AWAY. Seriously, it was as though someone knew what I had been going through and wanted to pass a message to me and fate had me clicking on the link.

After I finished reading it, I was quietly impressed and inspired to do great things. So I read the article again, savouring each word and pausing at each sentence trying to memorise the advice it is imparting. That was when I took a deep breath and promptly fell right back to sleep.

Anyway, here are a few quotes from the article. A reminder of the emotion the article evoked in me and how it’s important we should pursue and fulfil our dreams and be happy in our pursuit:

Some people dream of success, others make it happen. Of course, you can dream as much as you like but waiting for things to happen gets you nowhere. Get active and start making things happen.

Before you get started, find the burning passion in you that will spur you on when the going gets tough:

Whatever journey your path takes you on, the most important thing is to have passion in what you do.

How many of you went to college, got your degree, and ended up doing something totally unrelated to your major? Studying it did not make you passionate about it. It wasn’t your path.

Education or even talent aren’t worth much without passion. So do the stuff that you love and you’ve always wanted to do because without it, you’ll feel stuck and unfulfilled.

Why this is a clear sign for me:

Make this year the turning point in your life. When you do what you love, you will be rewarded — it will just flow naturally.

Look at those around you who just make things happen. They have a clear goal in mind and they know where they want to go. They don’t always have a plan but they have the passion and the tenacity to make it work, and they achieve their goals as the end result.

Trust us when we tell you this. If something [sic] important to you, you WILL find a way. If it isn’t, you’ll find an excuse. It’s that simple. Find your way. Make it work, whatever it takes.

And why we should never stand still and hope for things to fall into our lap:

Stop waiting for the perfect time to do what you want to do. Do it now.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so get used to being uncomfortable. It won’t kill you. Do you need a sign? Here it is: - Bill Tikos
