~Anne Roiphe

A woman whose smile is open and whose
 expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter
 what she wears.
Shine on !

— Kate Karyus Quinn, Another Little Piece

“Confession is good for the soul, they say. I’d imagine this is true. But my sins were too convoluted. And from the little I understand—too damning.”


“I inhale pain and exhale strength.”


When I was sad, I heard "When I’m gone"

When I was happy, I heard "Just lose it"

When I was angry, I heard "Lose Yourself"

When I was younger, I don’t understand anything of these songs, but the beat and the love of Eminem makes people stronger. Whether you’re 9, or 19. He’s someone I will never forget.

"That’s bad form Swan… tampering with a man’s hook."

— Hillary Clinton on how to handle criticism & other advice for young women, The Cut

“Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.”

when it all comes crashing down.

i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. what is wrong with me. i still love you. i still love you. i still love you. i wish my romance was like the notebook. i wish i didn't have sex with you. fuck. i still love you. i still love you. but i don't. so no. actually. i don't still love you. i'm just over tired and want a hug. so no. you can go crawl back in your hole. i'm going to be alone for a while and just wait not hunt for a relationship. i'm too young and i'd like something real, not fake. cos that. no i don't even think it was love. :)

A Book of Memories

Hidden in the attic,
all the way upstairs,
is something very special,
that I would like to share.

My hopes,
my dreams,
old photographs,
of good times and bad times that make me laugh.

The joy of a hug,
the thrill of a kiss,
leaves me to remember the pure, simple bliss.

I cry for the fun,
and giggle for the pain,
I enjoyed the good life I was able to maintain.

The thoughts and wishes,
they all stay with me,
all of these contained in my book of memories.

~ Kathleen Sheppard

“There are many things worth living for, a few things worth dying for, and nothing worth killing for.”

Bruce Lee

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

— Stephen King, Different Seasons

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.”

— Albert Einstein

“Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned

“I don’t want just words. If that’s all you have for me, you’d better go.”

Easy Ways to Improve your Day

  1. Begin your day by connecting with yourself – so you feel more centred and at peace with yourself.
  2. Make sure you get enough sleep. The less sleep you get the more stressed out you feel, and the harder it is to think, study and work.
  3. Dress for confidence. The way we look affects the way we feel.
  4. Take a few minutes to preview your day. What do you want to achieve today? What obstacles do you have to overcome? What can you do to make this a good day?
  5. Related to this, try not to over schedule your day. What’s not essential? And what can you drop?
  6. Clear your head before moving onto something new. Doing that will enable you to focus again.
  7. Make good eye contact and smile at those you meet. It makes you seem more friendly and approachable.
  8. Remember to apply the golden rule – and be polite, understanding and considerate.
  9. Show that same respect and care for yourself!
  10. Show appreciation and gratitude – and notice the hard work and contributions of others. 
  11. Be enthusiastic and passionate. Put your heart and soul into everything you do. You’ll respect yourself more if you do your job well.
  12. Share what you have, and who you are, with those around you. Life is much more rewarding when you’re generous.
  13. Look for ways to learn and to grow as a person. It makes life more interesting, and you’ll feel more fulfilled.
  14. Cultivate patience. It reduces your stress levels, and will also improve your relationships.
  15. Smile and laugh often. It’s the perfect way to find something good and worthwhile in every day.

you weren’t quite ready for that, were you?

you weren’t quite ready for that, were you?

— it’s going to be okay

“You’re allowed to want to kill yourself,
but you’re not allowed to do it.
You’re allowed to fight with your mother,
but you’re not allowed to to leave her crying on your bedroom floor.
You’re allowed to miss your ex boyfriend,
but you’re not allowed to say the scars all over your arms are his fault.
You’re allowed hate the girl who almost got you suspended,
but you’re not allowed to tell her that the world would be better off without her.
You’re allowed to stand on the edge of that bridge,
but you’re not allowed to jump.
You’re allowed to be mad at the world,
but you’re not allowed to blame it for the state you’ve put yourself in.
You’re allowed to be sad,
but you’re not allowed to give up.”

i don't even know what love is.

— Hadeia Adel

“فأنت جميل بلا شك،
لكنك لست أصل الجمال،
فجمالك تجلى من جمال الجميل.

You surely are beautiful,
but not the origin of beauty, for your beauty
came from the beauty
of the most beautiful.”

"Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people."

Like rain, I fell

Like rain, I fell for you.”

— Blocklava

“"Good Morning"
“How was your day?”
“Be careful”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“Sweet dreams”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Good night”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“You’re beautiful”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
… You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.”

I love writing, I love opinions and quotes and expressions.

“I love writing, I love opinions and quotes and expressions. It’s so beautiful to know that you’re not alone in this messed up world. It’s relieving to know that someone else feels the same way you do.”

When I’m comfortable with people,

When I’m comfortable with people, I’ll either call them a motherf##ker, or be really sarcastic and chill with them. That’s why I have such a small circle of friends. I don’t choose them. They choose me when they decide to stick around longer than I’d ever expect them to.

How to Develop Resilience

1. Work on developing a positive self-image, and accepting and loving the person that is “you”.

2. Develop a network of friends whom you can trust – who’ll be there to support you, and give encouragement.

3. Work on developing a positive mind set. Be grateful, optimistic, and focus on success.

4. Believe that you can change things, and make a difference. You’re not a helpless victim; you can take some control.

5. However, don’t waste your energy on things you cannot change. Walk away from toxic people and hopeless situations.

6. Take a long term view of things, and try to maintain your perspective. We all encounter obstacles and challenges in life.
