it's ok to not be perfect

anonymous asked:

ok so this is my first time writing something to an artist i really like but i just wanted you to know that your art is amazing i love your art style! Its cute when it needs to be cute and its scary when it needs to be scary. this probably makes no sense at all but i just wanted to say something to you

thats so sweet of you thank you so much!!! don’t worry btw it makes perfect sense!

Oh my god people who look amazing and post snapchat selfies on their blog like “im sorry im so gross ill delete this later yall probably hate me now :(” like either just post the selfie and be proud of it or dont post it at all if u hate it that much like u have bright pink hair, perfect eyeliner and one of those snapchat flower crowns we all know damn well u dont hate this selfie

There is no need to talk yourself down this much you can say youre proud of this selfie ITS OK

quickly made a simple little image for things u can do to help with self confidence! 

replacing your “I’m sorry”’s with “thank you for”’s can do a lot! 

saying”I’m sorry” makes you feel like you are bother and have to apologize for your presence. while “thank you” on the other hand makes it look like you appreciate the other person! 

how we talk about ourselves to other has a much bigger impact on how we look at ourselves than we realize. and changing them can have a huge impact on our recovery!

It’s around that time of year when kids start getting letters of being waitlisted, rejection and deferment. Just wanted to say hang in there– not everyone’s collegiate path is a strict linear progression. Taking gap years, transferring, going to your ‘B’or ‘C’ school, etc– they’re all completely valid ways to self-discovery and getting to where you want to be. From my own experience, things have a way of working out in the weirdest ways. Just keep your head up & mind open and don’t give up. 

ok but like shout out to all my girls with skin conditions like eczema or acne or keratosis pilaris, etc. society paints such a false picture of women as having perfectly clear and soft skin and like….that ain’t true. so many of us have bumps and scars and dryness and redness and no matter what we do it won’t go away. but yall are perfect okay like believe me i still don’t love my skin but its so Wrong that we hate ourselves so much for something so trivial. you’re beautiful okay and so is your skin i love u.

what you make doesn’t have to be perfect!!! what the hell is perfect?? make that mark on the paper! sing! write a sentence! don’t get so caught up in how something should look or will look, try to stay present while making! try and feel how good it is to create!! making things when we were kids was one of the best feelings ever right?? it’s how i want to feel every time i draw!!! and it’s harder when you’re an adult! when did we let fear into this beautiful process? putting yourself/your experience in your art is powerful!! it’s therapeutic! create something today! love u!

vld has flaws with character development but every character is well-rounded in the respects that they have a balanced amount of good and bad traits and i feel like fanon forgets that


here we are now, with the falling sky and the rain
     we’re awakening ♪

one of the scenes I would really love to see (as I’m sure many people have thought of!) is Rey experiencing her first rainfall ☺ also because “Awakening” has become one of my theme songs for TFA and all the new kids, there’s something about it which is very beautiful and fits so well thematically ;;

AND BONUS PIC: Finn + Rey (+ Poe’s jacket of a thousand uses (〃▽〃) )

new theory

ok hear me out

one of paloma’s prophecies/visions concerned “a brilliant light heralded by seven birds” and we’ve pretty much agreed as a fandom those seven birds are the red robes, right?

“the twins, the lover, the protector, the lonely journal-keeper, the peacemaker, and the wordless one”

what if taako is one half of the twins

and the other half is lup

or, more accurately:

Okay I had to say it so here it is

I don’t like the idea of Matt being Lance’s doppelgänger ?

Don’t get me wrong, I like Matt and I’m so glad Pidge found him and boy this powerful Holt duo they make is amazing

The thing that bothers me a lot is all the similarities Matt has with Lance. And I’m not only talking about his crush for Allura…

(we obviously know Lance has/had one on her)

And flirty-dorky behavior with her

(Lance is the master of it though)

I’m talking about the fact that he is a bit of a goofball, but also so caring with his sister

(isn’t Lance always the one there to comfort the other paladins ?)

He considers Shiro as his hero

(I meaaaaaan don’t we know someone else…)

He seems to develop a friendship with Keith

(Oh come on do I even have to explain this one ?)

He is skilled in battle

(Lance is the cool ninja sharpshooter)

And as we learnt from Pidge’s vlog, he is also very good at video games

(And who did we see lose his video game play ?)

We all know Lance has a lot of insecurities, how he feels like he is not important nor needed by the team, and then his perfect substitute appears ?

I feel like Lance is going to suffer a lot from it and I’m not liking it
