This graphic is just amazing. Picturing what most most people are trying to say in words is a great way to reach out to more people. The Anorexia picture and the child abuse picture was the one that broke me the most even if all of these pictures tells us a very important story.
I don’t expect this to go viral or to get millions of likes because, I don’t want it, liking won’t help. Please, embrace it and take action. Re blog so others can see it and talk about these world spread issues.
We have to work together to make the world a better and safer environment for everyone.
Magnus loved getting new types of makeup/glitter which he loves trying out on everyone. Until one day he convinces Alec to let him do his makeup and gives Alec a beautiful smoky eye look that brings out his blue eyes along with shimmery lipstick. The end product leaves Magnus breathless and he takes a picture of him before he drags Alec to everyone else who are left equally in awe.
I’m often amazed at what develops from the pictures I take. This lone dandelion in a sea of autumn grass was what first caught my eye. It was only later that I saw the tiny spider (lower right-hand corner) in the center of an intricate web spun from the tip of one blade of grass to another. Here I was thinking how singular, small and fragile the dandelion looked… There’s always more to every story.

Here’s something I know. You are as rare as the rarest orchid and just as worthy, even if no one, including yourself, realizes it.
And here’s a secret. News and people harangue you all day long saying how terrible the world is, but the reason they need to keep doing it is that the world is incredibly beautiful and amazing, like Heaven, or what we would picture it as. And if you aren’t constantly told it’s terrible you might become aware of the wonder of it and stop caring whether you’re smart enough, thin enough, or successful enough, and just start being amazed and grateful, and that doesn’t sell products.
So I’m reminding you today that it’s okay to be exactly who you are. Maybe you’ve been treated badly. Maybe you’ve treated others badly. That’s tough to live with and you may have work to do, but there is nothing you can do to make the world not love you, to make you not belong here, because in the end you are not separate from the world. You are completely made of it, heart, mind, body, and spirit. You belong to it and are cherished by it, exactly as you are.
You’re never separate. It is you. That connection is inexhaustible and if you give it half a chance, it will find its way to you, right in your regular life, and make things that seem like magic happen to you. This isn’t fantasy. It’s one of the things they don’t tell you about the way the world works. And they don’t tell you because they don’t know, because no one told them. They experience it but are afraid to let themselves believe.
Every day we step into a new world, where new things exist and new things are possible. Some indigenous people say, Creation is still happening. And what they mean is that things aren’t as steady as you’re told. Things come into existence and go out of existence. The past, in a way that’s difficult to explain, can change. The present can change in an instant, and you’ll say, “Oh, I must have remembered wrong.” “I must have been looking wrong.” Things aren’t locked in and hopeless like it seems. When you open your heart, amazing things can happen before your eyes.
The world can magic anything and make it look like it just happened that way. The way things happen in the world is miraculous. The world runs on magic, and it’s counting on you to be magical, full of your own special spirit that it gave you so you would be just as you are. There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s everything right with you, but people can’t see it through the distorted lens.
tl;dr: You are breathtakingly rare and beautiful. Thanks for bringing your light to my darkness.
So when the direct was on a little while ago and we saw the fe14 trailer and the SE got released for preorder with a launch date (WE’RE SO CLOSE GUYS WE’RE SO. CLOSE.) I remembered my EXTREME HYPE for this game and wanted to draw something for it
but at the same time I remembered that I’m still in denial over Silas not being the gay marriage candidate so I thought of something fun to do to squeeze in both and TADA. quietly lays on the otfamily
I’M REALLY SUPER HAPPY WITH HOW THIS CAME OUT and I absolutely had a blast doing it. It’s a simpler thing but I think that’s what was so fun about it tbh.
I had some trouble with Silas’ face at first since downward angled faces are the bane of me sometimes and didn’t draw his full chest piece cuz SCREW ARMOR but the way the interactions and expressions and just the whole thing came out makes me so proud ヾ(*´∀｀*)ﾉ
A loud, annoyed growl breaks the quiet of the night as she struggles to get up. Her limbs are shaking, they feel weak, as if they were like jelly. And, after what seems like an eternity, You can finally stand … On all fours.
She lowers her head to see what is so wrong right now, and her eyes land on two paws, resting on a tuft of grass. A surprised yap escapes her mouth as she stumbles backward. Once she’s come to a halt -meaning that her butt met the ground once she had tripped over a visible root-, she shakes her head and internally sighs.
It happened again.
Glancing up, You closes her eyes after seeing the moon in her full phase, irked.
As I walked down the crowded street, all I could see were strangers, cold expressions plastered on their faces. It made me feel even more out of place. Moving out was hard, but leaving the country was even harder.
I looked up to see the crowd becoming even heavier, the pushing and shoving increasing. What was happening? All I could hear were the girls around me yelling out what sounded like someone’s name. Suddenly, I was roughly pushed and I landed flat on my face. The adrenaline pumped through me. Is this how it ends? In the middle of a crowd? In a country that wasn’t my own?
“Are you okay?” A voice asked me urgently. I could barely hear him over the loud screams. I looked up to see the most gorgeous innocent eyes staring at me with deep concern. His hands gripped on my arms and pulled me to my feet.
“I think so,” I said dusting off my jeans. I winced as I felt a throbbing on my knees, indicating I had obviously hurt myself on the cement. He looked at me dubiously, but didn’t question me further as he was dragged away by a taller gentlemen and 6 other young boys.
“Be careful Noona!” he shouted back, a small smile playing on his lips as he looked at me from a distance.
Suddenly, Seoul had started to feel more like home.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MOST PRECIOUS CINNAMON ROLL THERE IS💜 (Btw she’s the angry Phelps) So this girl has been my best friend since preschool. THAT IS 17 freakin YEARS. God bless. But the past year was really hard for me and she was always there for me, either with a joke or encouragement to kick some ass. Even lately, you listen to my pointless rants about boys and give me some good advice (that I should listen to but I sometimes don’t). I can’t wait for us to go on more adventures together whether its to IKEA, Banff National Park, or around STL. You are my forever best friend and I love you to absolute pieces. I hope you have a great day (and feel better!) 😘👯 @themadnatxd
