love yourself now and always


Just your reminder that I do NOT look buff 24/7, I eat more than I need to, I have rolls, I have blemishes, I don’t do as much cardio as I should, I eat ice cream whenever I want, I go out to dinner with friends, I don’t lift every single day, my sleep schedule isn’t perfect, I get bloated, I have stretch marks, I AM HUMAN!

I am a glorious, strong, vivacious woman with a body who carries her through so much.

Never compare yourself to someone’s best moments, because everyone has candid photos of themselves they don’t post. Everyone has bad days. Social media is a place where people put their best selves forward, and you need to realize that you are not an image on the screen.


I hope you’re ok… I’m worried
—  WordsThatICantSeemToSay

i know it’s hard to accept compliments as anything other than lies. but when somebody blurts, “you’re beautiful,” take a breath. think of your dog, panting happily and covered in mud. think of your mother in her bathrobe with her hair in tinfoil while the dye sets. think of your best friend with her face streaked with tears and makeup. think of your little brother when he was sick and his face was a red puffy mess. think of how, even then, your heart swelled up with love of them. this is i think where compliments come from: when they look at you, no matter what, they see somebody beautiful, not some body, beautiful.


step one: allow yourself some semblance of a smile. your grief is not an iron cage and you are not trapped. you are allowed to mourn your own innocence, even if you barely remember how it felt. 

step two: hold his hand. you want to, even if you won’t admit it outloud. you want to take him and keep him so close to your chest that the world never has another chance to lash out, but if it did you’d be stood like a shield, like a guardian angel even the devil would avoid. it’s okay. it’s okay. hold his hand. 

step three: you don’t have to say the words for them to be true; at this point the “i love you"s are as natural as breathing, noiseless and soft. when you look at the stars you see the same light you find in his eyes everyday. 

step four: give yourself a chance to heal. it might take a while. it might take years. your past is a minefield no one taught you to navigate before now, but you are strong and you are loved and that’s enough (it has to be enough). 

step five: you gave him a key, a home, a reason to wake up with a smile and he gave you a reason to look forward to what was once a grey-scale future, now bathed in a shade of blue even the ocean would envy.

Author’s Notes: I have decided I am going to end this story two different ways. I am going to first continue with the storyline I had planned for. But, I also want to keep another ending going along with the show storyline (like what I did with my SPN fic Persephone). Part of this update will be in the alternative ending. I will start working on that during the mid season break.

Thank you for playing one of the best - if not the best - female character in movie history. For being an icon not for the glory and glamour of fame, but for never accepting the humiliation and impossible ideals that us women are subjected to on a daily basis every single day of our lives. Thank you for speaking up, and openly, and fearlessly, about how important it is to own, take care and overcome mental illnesses. Never ashamed. Always loving yourself.

Princess, general and now, more than ever, the greatest star.

Thank you, Carrie Fisher.

my mom just picked up food from my dad’s restaurant I have lamb shawarma, baba ganoush, pita, and vimto 😭😭😂😍

How did we get so lucky to be the people in this fandom right now with people like Jared Padalecki? How were we so fortunate to land in a fandom where the actors use their fame to expose themselves and their struggles to fans and others in order to draw people closer, to encourage them to love themselves first in order to live well and love others? 

Some celebrities use their considerable wealth or their faces or their time to uplift charities and bring attention to important issues, and that’s amazing… but there’s something so strong and encouraging and heart-breaking and beautiful about this huge, formidable man showing that it’s okay to start from a place where you have trouble loving yourself and it’s okay to be fighting and flawed and fearful. Everyone in the world deals with those things, and it’s not weakness to reveal our ongoing battles to others–it’s immeasurable strength, and there are people fighting the same battles the world over.

I’m so freaking thankful for Jared Padalecki. That is all.

4 stages of reading Jem’s sickbed scene in Clockwork Princess:

Will: “Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whiter thou goest, I will go.”

Jem: “You cannot go where I am going! Nor would I want you to!”

Will: “Neither can I walk away and leave you to die!”

Jem: “Do you think I don’t know that if you don’t go after her no one else will? Do you think it doesn’t kill me that I cannot go, or at least go with you?”

Jem: “Will, for all these years I have tried to give you what you could not give yourself.”

Will: “And what is that?”

Jem: “Faith, that you were better than you thought you were. Forgiveness, that you need not always punish yourself. I always loved you, Will, whatever you did. And now I need you to do for me what I cannot do for myself. For you to be my eyes when I do not have them. For you to be my hands when I cannot use my own. For you to be my heart when mine is done beating.”

Will: No, no, no. I will not be those things. Your eyes will see, your hands will feel, your heart will continue to beat.”

Jem: “But if not, Will -”

now usually I’m ok with character dislike because everyone’s entitled to their opinion but once you start criticizing Anya Jenkins it feels like a personal attack

“I used to look down on wrestling in general after being told off by my parents for watching it. 10 + years later, I have to thank my friends for reminding me why I loved it then and giving my even more reason to love it now. Remember to always enjoy yourself, no one should tell you what or who to love, let it be a specific Superstar or a whole genre/sport.”
