"Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”" Things I Wish My Mother Had Taught Me | d.a.s (via bohemianspirit)

"The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world." Warsan Shire (via jodyphamdraws)
"we control the frequency of our energy through our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. If we are predominantly positive and feeling good, we are attracting like positive energy in every area of our lives. If we are in fear, powerless, blame, or any negative emotion, we are attracting like negative energy into our lives. As every single thing is energy, positive energy draws positive people, circumstances, and events into our lives. Negative energy attracts negative energy, which we will experience through negative people, circumstances, and events." (via sophrosyne-bliss)

I think the most important thing to do in life is to be uncomfortable. Because that’s where you grow. Tell the beautiful stranger that you think he’s beautiful. Sing at the damn karaoke bar. Pick dare over truth. Run a stop sign at 2 a.m. and see what happens. Cry in the movie theater. Steal a kiss, and throw it in your pocket.
And then run back home."
"It is disgusting. We are told to love sex but never masturbate or fool around. To love our bodies but we have to be hairless, thin, have boobs, and to never wear make up to cover our flaws. We can like sports and watch them but we can’t play them unless they are toned down and pretty enough to be oggled at. We can be nerds but we can’t be TOO smart or we forget our place. We are told we need a prince charming and to seek him out by constantly changing ourselves and being perfect for him. We are given the message that outside beauty is what matters the most but if we have it and get successful it was because we have a pretty face. We are told we exaggerate and should just go with it when we complain of being objects and property. We are taught that being a woman is worthy of an insult… WE have to fear walking at night. WE have to go in a group if we need to use the bathroom in a strange place. WE have to be cautious of where we are and who we are with. That we are told to hush and get over it if we are assaulted because real life isn’t like the crime shows and it is harder to convict the assaulter. That female artists are degraded and yelled at in artist alleys. That you are judged just by how you wear a t-shirt." (via fragolle)
