Life is one of those things that takes you by surprise day after day. You can’t predict tomorrow and you can’t comprehend today. You can’t create an agenda for life because the chances of it actually going the way you planned are highly unlikely. The thought of not knowing what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone in five minutes, is probably the most exhilarating part of life. Why would you want your entire existence planned out every minute? Whenever you say you’re bored, the only person you have to blame in yourself. The world is an open book and a chance for adventure. There is not one person or thing in your way that is preventing you from challenging yourself and daring yourself to do something crazy and out of the box. What fun does anyone really have from just living inside of the box? Which brings me to my next point: I love crazy people. Those random people on the street wearing outfits you think they put on in the dark or those that are even living on the street saying that the world is beautiful and wonderful. Honestly, those are the people that you should be envious of. Those are who you should want to become. I don’t mean become homeless, but I mean become your own person. Explore the world and do whatever the hell you want. There is no proper way to live. There are no guidelines to follow or agenda to have. Some people choose to have a very tight schedule and have every minute planned and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that But there are those that would choose to be the complete opposite. People that want to wake up and say, “I want to go hike 25 miles and camp on top of a mountain,” and actually go do it. There are people that sell all of their possessions so they can travel the world. And all three of these life choices are completely acceptable and there should be no one in this world that can say that you’re insane or stupid for doing so. You need to take life as it’s given to you: one day at a time. When you’re given good days, take advantage of them. When you have off days, do something to turn them positive. Having a fulfilling life all depends on how you perceive it. So go out. Explore. Be spontaneous. Never regret anything. Ever.
Hi, my name is Emily and I am addicted to concerts.
"Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it."
"The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl."
"Girls are not machines that you put kindness coins into until sex falls out."
"Some hearts understand each other, even in silence."
Alright, I have something to say
Stop body shaming.
There are so many people in this world: boys and girls both who have serious issues with how they see themselves in the mirror; including myself. It’s hard enough for us to accept what we look like, so you have no right whatsoever to even begin to judge people on their appearance. There is no right or wrong way to look. There is no right or wrong way to eat. There is, however, a right way to treat yourself and the only one that can tell you how to do so is yourself.
People think it’s okay to call someone fat behind their back or judge their diet or what they order or how much they exercise. But what are the standards of how someone should do all of that? Oh right, there isn’t a standard. I exercise for happiness. I eat for satisfaction. I live to make myself become the best that I can be. And it’s really hard to do that when people are constantly judging your appearance. This is a double-edged sword, and I’ll tell you why. Because it’s not only people that are body shaming others. It’s also you body shaming yourself. Don’t continuously look in the mirror and find your flaws, because they aren’t going to end, ever. It’s just that simple. But you can find more beauty in yourself every single day.
My point to all of this is, if you’re doing all of this changing for a boy, that’s wrong. If you’re doing this for society, that’s wrong. If you’re doing this for anyone but yourself, it’s wrong. The only time it’s right is when you are doing it for the good of yourself. To make sure you yourself is actually happy.
There are copious amounts of beauty in this world, constantly surrounding you. Stop focusing so hard on looks. Stop judging other people and then comparing them to yourself. You are not them. You aren’t even related. You probably don’t even know them. So why do you care so much about their appearance? Society is giving us this skewed view that we all are supposed to be a certain way. But who gave them that right? No one. It’s so sad to see, but even society and the media are body shaming. They don’t understand the harsh affect it can have on someone. It can cause people to go into depression, anorexia, bulimia, anxiety, and unhealthy habits. It can even cause suicide. How can magazines be saddened by deaths when their ads can be a cause of a percentage of those?
My advice? Be beautiful. Physically and mentally. Ignore the judgment and create your own person. Stop comparing yourself and focus on you. The first step to happiness is realizing your true beauty and the beauty of those people and things around you.
Beauty is everyone and everything. Just accept it.
When somebody changes their Tumblr name and you’re just like, “What the fuck!? Where did you go?”
It’s like you change your last name, you don’t tell me, and then I have to find you through the yellow pages.
