a fun night out for me is going to target
- elementary school: I went to bed at 10
- everyone: omg thats so cool
- middle school: I went to bed at 10
- everyone: wow loser
- high school: I went to bed at 10
- everyone: omg luckyyyy
- college: I went to bed at 10
- everyone: is that even possible
I just pray that with this new age, I will only get better. I pray that I will be kinder, stronger, braver, and wiser. Every year, I don’t want to just gain a number… I want to gain knowledge. I want to gain knowledge of who I’ve been, who I am, and who I want to be.
dear seventeen, it’s been real,
but it’s time for a new chapter.
women are beautiful, strong and powerful,
and can prove it without parading a runway wearing next to nothing.
why must we glorify a fashion show that objectifies women? why must we glorify something that only leaves women feeling as though to be sexy, they must be nearly naked, covered in makeup, and the “perfect” weight?
women are the crown of creation. women are the crown of creation without makeup. women are the crown of creation no matter their size. women are the crown of creation wearing just sweatpants and their favorite sweater.
my dear sisters, your beauty is unparalleled. don’t let someone tell you lies about what beauty is. you already know what beauty is every time you look in the mirror.
