Embrace Being Awkward AF

I think we need to get away from this model of success porn. That success is sexy and perfect! It’s an image of success that men have put on us, in a way. It can’t be that the only way that you can show up to a professional situation is if you spend four hours getting ready that morning. Men don’t have to do that! That is not equality. That you have to pay $300 for a glam squad to get you suitable for public consumption is garbage! And we have to get away from it.”

Love is whimsical

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you believe yourself unfortunate
because you have loved and lost,
perish the thought.

One who has truly loved can never lose entirely.

Love is whimsical & temperamental.
Its nature is ephemeral & transitory

It comes when it pleases and goes away
without warning.

Accept and enjoy it while it remains,
but spend no time worrying about its
departure.

Worry will never bring it back.

Don’t let them stop you

“People get scared when you try to do something, especially when it looks like you’re succeeding. People do not get scared when you’re failing. It calms them.
… but when you’re winning it makes them feel like they’re losing, or worse yet, that maybe they should’ve tried to something too but now it’s too late. And since they didn’t, they want to stop you.
You can’t let them.”
– Mindy Kaling, Why Not Me?
