"There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether."

More Than Words: Tomboys R Us

THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].”

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."

The thing about beauty that I find to be most true is that it is incredibly malleable. Perfectly sculpted by creams, powders and every substance in between, the conscious choice to improve our physical appearance offers the potential for every individual to be his or her best self. Despite this, the words we speak, the thoughts we think and the kindness we show (or not) always manage to divulge our true nature. In an instant, our beauty fades, and the emptiness that could be filled by compassion and empathy, have instead left room for judgment and self-doubt. We are only as valuable as our intentions; for ourselves, for other human beings and for the world that surrounds us. Be wise with your decisions; be careful with your beauty.

"One day, whether you
are 14,
or 65

you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.

However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––

is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives."
- Beau Taplin, “The Awful Truth”  (via coffeekaling)
