“Develop a healthy relationship with food. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re full, don’t eat. Eat vegetables to be good to your body, but eat ice cream to be good to your soul.
Take pictures of yourself frequently. Chronicle your life. Selfies are completely underrated. Even if the pictures are unflattering, keep them anyway. There will always be mountains and cities and buildings, but you will never look the same way as you did in that one moment in time.
Your worth does not depend on how desirable someone finds you. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time with people who make you feel beautiful.
Close doors. Don’t hold onto things that no longer brings you happiness and do not help you grow as a person. It is okay to walk away from toxic relationships. You are not weak for letting go.
Forgive yourself. We all have something in our pasts that we are ashamed of, but they only weigh us down if we allow them to. Make amends with the old you and work every day to become the person that you’ve always wanted to be.”—Tina Tran, Tips to being a happier you (via exoticwild)
“So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.”—Meredith Grey (via wethinkwedream)
Tips for starting a journalism club in high school?
Hey guys! So, I’m starting a journalism club at my school and our first meeting is tomorrow and I was just wondering if any of you who have done it have some tips or ideas for what I could include (for the first meeting and anything after that) or how to run it?
Anything would be much appreciated and I will love you forever
“When you are your own best friend, you don’t endlessly seek out relationships, friendships, and validation from the wrong sources because you realize that the only approval and validation you need is your own.”—Mandy Hale, The Single Woman (via larmoyante)
“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”—Alan W. Watts (via gangotree)
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”—Hunter Thompson (via my-fit-body)
What if we all looked the way we wanted? Our ideal weight became reality, our worries about money washed away. Your love life is exactly the way you pictured it. Do you think we’d all be happier? Or would we just find new things to hate?
While I was getting my nails done today, this very grumpy, larger older lady came in. The nail salon had 2013’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show playing on the tv. Half way through her pedicure she explained very loudly: “no real woman looks like that” and it really got me thinking.
I see on here…
its more the photoshop and crazy dieting before a show they do with Victoria Secret that makes it ridiculous…..
