This is for Monday Motivation that @rosewater7 tagged me in. I know that it is Wednesday, but I have been extremely busy. I know, I know…

JK Rowling: This is something that I don’t talk about often, but my friends know. I used to have a terrible speech impediment to the point that I wouldn’t read or talk when I was in class. My school provided a speech therapist but I still didn’t like to read because the stutter translated in my head. When I was in 3rd grade, my librarian gave me Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This was the first book I ever read in its entirety and quickly became an avid reader. This woman is the woman that inspires me to continue my writing. I mean….I have two manuscripts in my apartment of books that I have written. She is truly amazing. She has openly spoken about her depression and how she battles it. She has talked about what it is like to have truly hit rock bottom. Where you are living from government funds just to make it through your daily life. You know what? She kept going. She kept writing and she is amazing for that! She doesn’t take crap from anyone. Her twitter account is proof. When she became rich, she didn’t move out of London, she stayed there to pay her taxes and she regularly donates to charities and sends money to people that are asking for help and its amazing! 

Maya Angelou: She is a phenomenal woman as well. Her words give me strength when I am down. If you don’t know her background story, I suggest you do some research. She was mute for the earlier half of her life because she was mute after suffering from sexual abuse until she was 7 years old. She educated herself by reading so much that she read her entire library. She over came that and spoke about loving yourself and knowing that you are a phenomenal woman. She is something that I will forever hold in my heart because she is so strong and amazing. She is inspirational and her words will forever be relevant. 

Gillian Anderson: I was watching her since the age of twelve in The X-Files. A show I wasn’t allowed to watch, but did it anyways. She is truly an outspoken feminist and I love her for that. She is constantly championing women. She doesn’t pit women against women and I love that about her! When I was in my true realm of bad mental health, I would stop and think about how Gillian has been through her own hell and back but she is still here, doing what she loves. The humanitarian side of her is amazing. She is constantly giving and giving and I can’t stop thinking about it. Like she gives so much already and yet she keeps doing more and more! She constantly helps me push myself to go that extra mile and to keep giving even when the world is cruel.

Honestly it baffles me how people can just completely overlook the hurtful comments and actions of celebrities, even if it makes them uncomfortable or alienated.

Whether its the unfunny screaming assclowns that constitute most big Youtubers, or that one bullshit show everyone watches that’s proved time and time again that no, they don’t care about what anyone thinks and will continue making jokes at others expense… They just keep watching?

Like love yourself smh 

There is metric a fuckton of media out there that is funnier, better written and more importantly more respectful to the people who consume it. Just move on. There’s greener pastures, don’t settle for that shit.

Choosing to follow Christ, to proclaim the Gospel, and to serve His Church has been the greatest adventure I have ever embarked on.
