When my friend tells me I got a little out of control on the dance floor last night

Some food for thought, via a very wise man:

"Voting is easy and marginally useful, but it is a poor substitute for democracy, which requires direct action by concerned citizens." Howard Zinn

That being said, I will admit my uterus and I are quite relieved that: Barack Obama won, Elizabeth Warren won, Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock lost, Tammy Baldwin became the first openly gay Senator, Maine and Maryland have passed marriage equality, and Colorado and Washington have legalized cannabis for recreational use - hopefully followed by Oregon.

I’m hoping the whole country will follow suit on that last one in the next decade, ‘cause seriously, lots of people could’ve probably chilled the fuck out by lighting up tonight.

Love y’all, my fellow U.S. Americans ♥

It’s only been my birthday for like 3 hours, what the fuck people…

I’ve already received so much love. My heart is full and it feels amazing!

After a year of intense life lessons and unexpected twists… this next year is going to be fantastic… I can feel it in mah bones!

25 years, and the adventure has really just begun. I have so much to look forward to. So many beautiful moments ahead. So many wonderful people I haven’t even met yet. So many possibilities…

I am so happy, yaaaaaaaaaay :D

Musings of an Inappropriate Woman: The number one thing you can do to grow your community of dreamers and doers

rachelhills:


Be a cheerleader.

Not in the sense of putting on a short skirt and shaking those pompoms, but in the sense of finding joy in being a champion for the people around you.

Think someone is doing something fantastic? Tell them.

Wish you were part of group of people who supported each other’s dreams? Find people whose dreams you share and support theirs.

Love getting sweet Tweets and email notes? Send one to someone else.

On the hunt for a mentor to help you forge your path? Look for things you can do to help the people you admire. Or better yet - direct your energies to helping someone who doesn’t have your advantages along their own path.

It can be tempting sometimes to focus on the things that are missing from your life: to wish you had more love, more support, a greater sense of value.

But here’s a secret - the greatest happiness is usually to be found in championing the value of others.

❝Start out perfect and don’t change a thing. Always accentuate your best features by pointing at them. And conceal your flaws by sucker punching anyone who has the audacity to mention them.❞

1. I want that dress. (And the puppy.)
2. I will totally be wearing outfits like this in 30 years.
3. I hope I look as happy and sexy as she does.

❝I like to see people reunited, maybe that’s a silly thing, but what can I say, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.❞
– Jonathan Safran Foer (via 99lions)
