Be an active producer of your own life.
It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself.
I have an idea. What if fashion magazines made photoshoots with everyday people while they are reading, doing their jobs, laughing with friends and other everyday activities instead of taking photos of glorified models in lusty poses and making them even more unreachable with photoshop?
“For women all over the world it’s so important to be beautiful. People pay more attention to you if you look a certain way. People listen to you more. You can gain a lot of things and win a lot of things if you have a face that is beautiful.
For Lisbeth, I shaved both sides, had piercings, and dyed my hair black. I had to go to the bank and do something and they were so rude to me. I asked myself why they were ignoring me. What’s going on? Then I realized they saw this punk girl. People are so judgmental.” -Noomi Rapace.
I got lyrics from Bon Iver’s “Holocene” on my ribs. While on a hike through the mountains, I was overcome by the beauty of nature and how small and insignificant we are as humans, though we tend to think we’re more important. I got this tattoo to remind me to always stay humble and that there is more going on than the small things happening in my life.
My tattoo was done by Dave Hatton at Artistic Element 2 in Los Angeles, California. He normally does much more detailed portraits, but did this for me as a favor on my last day in California! Also, the words aren’t crooked, I’m just laying at a weird angle.
We are a generation of narcissists. Have the courage to value yourself without needing to put others down.
The best portion of a good man’s life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.

We cannot view the world through another being’s eyes. Love is knowing, without a doubt, another’s perception of the world and being content with having no evidence.

Doing a giveaway on some Cotton On boots that I never wore, only for US Residents though because shipping is wayyy too expensive.
It’s a Size 38, so about a 7.5 in US sizing :)
Reblog as many times as you want, I don’t have any rules really.
1) Just LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES.
2) Answer to my message when you win in 3 days, or I’ll pick someone else!
3) ENDS NEXT THURSDAY, MARCH 7th!
These boots reach above the ankle and are a black suede. The photo came out a bit bright, but oh well. They’re free if you win them and I never used them, quit complaining! :)
Whut whut !
Why do I find these two people so attractive ?!
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
