JK Rowling’s rant on girls being (unhealthy) thin.
For Girls Only, Probably… Being thin. Probably not a subject that you ever expected to read about on this website, but my recent trip to London got me thinking… It started in the car on the way to Leavesden film studios. I whiled away part of the…
“Diet = the way you eat; the foods you eat on a regular basis. It’s not something you stop and start. Make real lifestyle changes. If you eat something you wouldn’t usually eat, you move right on. As Alwyn Cosgrove says, “If you cheat, get right back on track. A lot of people think after cheating, ‘I’ve blown it so I might as well REALLY blow it!’ Let me ask you - if you get a flat tire do you get out of the car and slash the other three? Hey, you have a flat tire, might as well have four, right?” If you want to make changes, start NOW.”—ChristinaDoesLife (via timoneil)
“I happen to believe the world will change only when we change ourselves. And that starts with finding ourselves. And that starts with listening to ourselves: learning to quiet the clamor in our minds and the voices of everyone around us and move toward what feels right- towards the things we know, for reasons we can’t explain, that we’re meant to do, the things that make us feel alive.”—Kelly Cutrone - If You Have To Cry Go Outside, And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You (via quote-book)
“We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy. We’ll get that car, or that job, or that person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood and it’s a condition- not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry. It’s not permanent. It comes and goes, and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way they’d find happiness a lot more often. Happiness is a mood, not a destination.”—One Tree Hill
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, Kwanzaa, and/or any other holiday you might celebrate, and hope those of you who celebrate it, had a wonderful Hanukkah. Remember to be thankful for your health, the love of friends and family, and the smiles you will hopefully share with them during the holidays.
“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”—e.e. cummings (via psychotherapy)
I know it seems “easier said than done,” but take a step back and look at the situation; will stressing out over something get the job done better, faster, or easier? No. It will only make things harder on you. All you can do is try your best and look forward to the rewards.
Not to sound like a fortune cookie, but the future is unwritten my friend. You don’t know what tomorrow, or the next day, or even the next 15 minutes has in store for you. Why wouldn’t you have a life companion? Or better yet, why can’t you have a life companion? Everyone deserves the love of a significant other, and if you stay hopeful and optimistic (and trust me, I know it can be hard sometimes) then they will come along someday. Just stay open to possibility.
So I went to the gym today. I didn’t exactly complete my goal of going every day this week, but I went today which I’m proud of and did a good amount of cardio for having not worked out for like 2 weeks. I’m gonna try to go tomorrow and really try and get into a gym routine so then when I go home for winter break I’ll be in the routine and go to the gym at home. I’ll need it to work off all the christmas food. Haha.
