Yay!! Cue the happy dance! 🎉🎊🎈

We spend so much time ripping ourselves apart because we’re so used to our features.

The only time we see ourselves is in the mirror or in photographs.

We don’t see the way our eyes light up when we talk about something we love or when we read a good book.

We don’t get to see the way our pupils dilate when we see someone we’re attracted to.

We don’t see ourselves for anything more than a person who’s merely existing.

We will never be able to see ourselves for the beauty we posses.

Society has this idiotic idea that beauty is only skin deep, it’s not, it’s deep within our souls.

We are our own worst enemy.

If only we had the chance to see ourselves through someone else’s eyes.

I want to know what I look like to other people (via unpoeticheartbreak)

Fluff rice with a fork, never stir it with a spoon.
Vaseline is the best night time eye cream on the market.
You can buy alcohol and chips with your parents’ gas station credit cards.
If you force something, you’ll break it. That could be good or bad.

Whatever physical objects you acquire you will one day have to put into a box and move.

Nostalgia, like any drug, can be a poison or a remedy.
Pets are like human friends but better in every conceivable way.

You can’t fix a burned roux.
Floss.
Just because someone is an authority figure does not mean they are intelligent/competent/right.
Measure twice, cut once.

You can absolutely be too forgiving.
Real humor punches up, not down.

There are no adults. Everyone is as clueless as you are.
Applying eyeliner well is a timeless art.
You can always leave. Awkward dates, suffocating jobs, hometowns that you outgrow, relationships that aren’t growing in the right direction.
You can always come home again.
But it won’t be the same.
Life is too short for bad books, boring movies, crappy people, and margarine.
Never underestimate the importance of eyebrows.
Don’t confuse my personality with my attitude. My personality is who I am. My attitude depends on who you are.

don’t date anyone who doesn’t want to hear your favorite song, watch your favorite movie, read your favorite book

This advice is actually fan-fucking-tastic

Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.

This child was abandoned by her parents. She lives and begs for food on the beach of Tarkali, India. Tourists come and go, but only few look her in the eye (they would prefer not to). And only a few of the few who look her in the eye offer her food. I’m asking you not to glance over her picture and appreciate the quality, but to really see this young, beautiful girl smiling against all odds. She’s one of many children in India who live their lives like this, one of many. By the way, her name is Aasha. (Hope).
