don’t be scared, they can’t see, to them you are a warm soft perch in a world of scary things
this is the best thing that has been added to this so far. I’m gonna cry
this is what dreams are made of
Sweet dreams are made of cheese
Who am I to disagree
Travel through dough and seasonings

“She looked at me with tears in her eyes and spoke quietly, ‘In my whole life, I have never felt love.’ I continued to hear similar stories as I traveled, researching and photographing child marriage in countries like Nepal, Ethiopia, India and Yemen, Tanzania, South Sudan and even Europe and the US,” says photographer Stephanie Sinclair (@stephsinclairpix), who has spent more than a decade documenting the abuse of women and girls around the world.
"I wanted to make sure that we got these images and stories in front of diplomats and policy makers who could enforce laws and support programs to provide more protection for these girls," she says. "I was sure if the rest of the world understood their lives as I had come to, real change wouldn’t be far behind."
visit the website. it is well worth your time.
i can’t wait until october when there’s no sun outside and everything is cute colors and it’s cold and there are terrible horror movies on tv, my power is at its peak then
I know we all have problems and issues, but every once in a while, I really just want to tell people to quit their bitching. Try breathing in the fresh summer air. Take a walk and listen to happy tunes. Read a magazine. Read a book. Watch a movie with will ferrel. Laugh at your fuck ups. Laugh and his fuck ups. Laugh. Life is only as difficult as you make it out to be. Even when he doesn’t call, even when you’re all alone, even when it’s thundering outside, you are here and you are alive and there is a whole world ready to accept you as soon as you accept it. Stop blaming everyone, everything. Stop blaming yourself. There’s not enough time and breath for you to be wasting on negativity constantly. Cry when you must, and smile when you’re done. You are here. And you can be free as soon as you let yourself go.
