Do it Anyway



“Do it Anyway” - Kent Keith:

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, some could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Tattoos and Touch-ups

A woman is often measured by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve, by where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers, by all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside. And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control; by who she is and who she is trying to become. Because as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics and statistics lie.

On that note I have spent the last few days trying to find someone to photoshop pictures of me so that I could confidently put them up...skim a little off the love handle, touch up here and there...

I finally decided that I need to get over my vanity issues, and just put them up anyway...this had a lot to do with the fact that all the people I asked to photoshop my pictures refused for one reason or another...

So here are pictures of me and my new tattoo...handles and all :)

These are the Kind of Girls

These are the kind of girls who hang dream catchers above their beds, who eat pomegranates and read old history books for fun. These are the kind of girls who take pictures of their hands with disposable cameras and wallpaper their bathrooms with pretty roses. These girls sketch eyes and mouths and little drawings all over things, they look you right in the eye and almost through you when you speak to them.


These girls camp out in their backyards for fun, they light candles everywhere, and if you visit then at home they usually have all sorts of animals. Their wardrobes are filled with silk robes and bows and hats, they drink tall glasses of milk and snack on chocolate while they watch the sun rise. These are the kind of girls who ride bikes through the city to the cinema that plays old movies in the middle of the day. They watch “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or “Rosemary’s Baby”. These are the kind of girls who are quiet in public. They were the kind of girls who put too many marshmallows in their hot chocolate, and when the snow came down, lit the fire and pretended to be in the North Pole. They would water colour things they couldn’t see, and eat French toast for lunch. These girls were the kind of girls who always believed in unicorns, they believed in the power of love and dreams. They were the kind of girls who gazed out of windows at bigger worlds, and rain made them think of faeries and tree houses. In the summer they read Jane Austin and listened to Fleetwood Mac while sipping cold tomato juice.

They told ghost stories under the huge floral sheets, candles glowing below their faces. The spooky endings made them scream and laugh. They huddled together so they wouldn’t get too scared. Every sound outside made them jump.
