Andy Warhol once said “Weight isn’t important the way the magazines make you think it is. I know a girl who just looks at her face in the medicine cabinet mirror & never looks below her shoulders, & she’s four or five hundred pounds but she doesn’t see all that, she just sees a beautiful face & therefore she thinks she’s a beauty. & therefore I think she’s a beauty, too, because I usually accept people on the basis of their self-images, because their self-images have more to do with the way they think than their objective-images do. Maybe she’s six hundred pounds, who knows. If she doesn’t care, I don’t.”
“The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.”—William Lyon Phelps (via justbesplendid)
“Hindsight, I think, is a useless tool. We, each of us, are at a place in our lives because of innumerable circumstances, and we, each of us, have a responsibility to move along life’s road, to find a better path if this one does not suit, or to walk happily along this one if it is indeed our life’s way. Changing even the bad things that have gone before would fundamentally change who we are, and whether or not that would be a good thing, I believe, it is impossible to predict.
So I take my past experiences… and try to regret nothing.”—R.A. Salvatore (via thresca)
Time to stock up on your favorite fall/ winter wear in camel.
I just randomly read it on the front page of a newspaper that was lying on the ground. Funny, fashion has a way of speaking to me in the most random ways. Gotta live up to my “fashionista” title somehow right?
… And so far, I haven’t gone to bed sad :) Yay that must be a base or a milestone or something! I believe that I deserve better more and more each day. That’s all I could ever want in my love life. To know that someone out there is made just for me, and will treat me with the respect and kindness I deserve because we are all beautiful people and anyone who has the nerve to damage a beautiful person is just not worth it.
I need to get my life straight first, of course, before I do this, but I’ve always wanted to make a difference somewhere. Whether it be one person’s life or a whole community. It would be really great to have a “little” to introduce to all my other “big” & “little” sticks :D <3
I’m giving myself til summer 2011 to get my life straight, because I really want to volunteer by then. It would be really awesome to get out there and make a difference & make someone feel like they have someone to be there for them.
