apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

I have a love for her that runs deep.

(via kaitmpayne)


She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood.
She only looked away for a moment, and the mask slipped, and you fell. All your tomorrows start here.

HOW TO BE THE GIRL HE WANTS:

the first time someone tells you these words I hope you stick out your hand and catch the letters in the air I hope you crunch them in your fist I hope you shove them back into the mouth they flew out of I hope and pray you are not eight years old and hanging off of a shopping cart and groaning about how bored you are, I hope you were not young like I was the first time I read a magazine on a shelf underneath the candy I hope you weren’t young because I still thought everything I read had to be true - but better yet, I hope these words never find you.

They tell you to be strong but it’s the little things like this that sit on our hips and tangle in our hair and feel like bees when the night gets dark. It’s the little things we could never ever shake off because the minute we tried, we discovered there were more waiting for us.

HOW TO LOOK GOOD FOR SUMMER:

smile more often. I hope the first time someone calls you fat, you shimmy your shoulders and wink and feel like a goddess and take it as a compliment. I hope you are not the new kid in a fifth-grade class, glasses on your nose and your hair in tangles. I hope nobody ever touched your tummy and asked if you were embarrassed by the way it jiggles. I hope if you ever hear those words, you reach out your beautiful fingers and touch the temple of the person talking and ask, “Are you embarrassed your brain works like that?”

See, I have not gained weight since the eight grade and I’m twenty. I have had about four hundred people tell me I’m skinny but it’s only the two or three voices about the thickness of my thighs and the fat on my hips - these are the only voices that stick. Don’t give them that satisfaction. Take a bath. Stare at your reflection. Count the flecks beside your iris. Promise yourself you’re not going to ruin your life - you won’t let them win. Don’t let that moment cause ripples. Yank out the cruelty from your system.

HOW TO HAVE BETTER SEX:

stop faking it. Stop engineering your body to be a call-and-response of bruises and shots. I hope you are not fifteen the first time a boy kisses you hard. I hope you do not go home with a bloody mouth and spend the rest of your life thinking love is stained with iron. I hope you are not swallowing your sanity to be with somebody. I hope the first time you let someone touch you, they are someone worthy of your trust - I hope that nobody tries to force you into a label like “frigid” or “slut.”

In the animal world, most males have bright plumage so they can attract mates. In humans, we expect ladies to look a certain way. When you break out of the norm, suddenly you’re rattling chains. How dare you not want sex and still look this way. Maybe people are scared of admitting your body has power - it can turn heads in a baggy sweatshirt. Your body doesn’t need a magazine’s confirmation. Your body’s been through hell and still keeps on living. Put on your heels and stalk down the sidewalk. Take off your makeup. Do what you need to feel awesome.

HOW TO BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN:

ignore everything they tell you. Don’t let them in.

Maybe one day I’ll make a list of every single terrible magazine I’ve read. I think I’m gonna start an advice column called “If it makes them money, it’s probably not good.” /// r.i.d (via rauchwolken)

I am excited to see a generation of women who will raise their boys to be good rather than their girls to be scared.

People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week is for letting yourself get weirder, for letting your dreams get louder, for growing into your truest self. You can talk the way you want, you can move the way you want, you can tell the stories that beat hardest in your chest. You can use whatever tools you have; you can use whatever tools you need. It’s okay to rely on honesty or on pop songs or on your friends. It’s okay to live quietly and it’s okay to live loud, just keep working to be generous. Keep working to be kind.
 Taurus: You might feel strange this week, you might feel like you’re living in so many worlds at once. You might feel split between the earth and the sky, split between the afternoon and the night, split between your bright inner life and the world outside, full of soil and trees and concrete. Try to remember that you don’t have to be whole all the time. You don’t have to make sense. You don’t have to tell your life like it’s a story. Stay honest and keep living and you can find everything you need.
 Gemini: This is a week for big projects and hard work; this is a week for bright colors and things you aren’t even sure you’re ready for. You can find so much magic inside yourself. You can find so much bright strength just by leaving the house every day, just by moving. You can surprise yourself with how much you’re capable of. Drink so much water, drink so much coffee, buy an old sewing machine, build a garden bed. There are so many places you can find energy this week. There’s so much you can do.
 Cancer: When you look in the mirror this week, when you look out the window, when you look up at the sky or out at the ocean, you might get so restless. When you walk through the streets of your city this week you might feel parallel worlds and possible futures tugging at you, aching in your heart, singing in your dreams. This restlessness can make your imagination so big and bright, but try not to let it distract you too much. Don’t forget your own body, don’t forget your own friends, don’t forget to go outside.
 Leo: This is a week for living a little wild; this is a week for trusting your luck, for trusting weird coincidences, for trusting the stars above you and the breeze in your bedroom at night. Try not to think too much; try not to worry. You are where you’re supposed to be, and that could mean so many things. You are making the right choices, and that can mean so many things. Trust your body and trust your feet. Write letters to the person you love the most. Write poems that you’ll never show anyone but yourself.
 Virgo: This week you might feel a little bit small in the world, and this can be such a good thing. You aren’t the only person in the world; you aren’t the only person who has seen the things you’ve seen and lived the things you’ve lived. You are never alone, but still there’s so much space to breathe. There’s so much space to dream. Spend some of your days alone. Spend some of your days with friends. Spend some of your days on crowded streets just watching the huge world move all around you.
 Libra: This week, it might be easy to live in the echoes inside your own head; it might be easy to spend your days in your memories and desires. Your funny weird thoughts can light you up, they can give you new energy, they can open up new pathways inside your head. Go on walks by yourself. Stay up late listening to songs about love and fire. You can dream whole new worlds into being this week, but leave a light on in your window. Don’t forget the way back home.
 Scorpio: This week can be so good and so bright and so wild, and still, the world around you might not quite make sense. The words and stories of your life might bend and shake; the joy in your heart might be too much to be contained. You can live so well this week. You can break so many rules. You can let your dreams overflow. Watch the sky change, watch the shadows move across the ground. Draw pictures of your dreams. Draw pictures of the future and watch the world shift.
 Sagittarius: This is a week for keeping yourself busy; this is a week for staying in motion as much as you can. It’s so easy to get caught up in reflection, caught up in dreams, caught up in an invisible future. Sometimes it’s enough just to move, sometimes it’s enough just to live, sometime it’s enough just to keep walking. Spend your days cooking, spend your days building things, spend your days on your bicycle. Work so hard that your sleep is easy and sweet. Work so hard that you can stop worrying for a while.
 Capricorn: This week, choose a magic to believe in and let it make you powerful. Choose a magic to believe in and let it fill your heart. There’s so much sorrow in the world. There is so much strangeness. There’s so much light. There are so many ways to survive and get older and keep living, and you can believe in whatever weird forces you need. Listen to songs that sound like the sky. Listen to songs that sound like the color red. Listen to songs that can show you a way out.
 Aquarius: This can be a good week for getting unstuck from the things that have been weighing you down. You don’t have to run away and you don’t have to leave your whole life behind, but you can take small slow steps out of dark rooms and sad places, this week. You can find new sources of energy, you can find new sources of joy, you can find so many ways to sustain yourself. Believe in your own motion. Believe in your own bravery. Open your windows, or cut your sleeves off your shirt, or go swimming all day.
 Pisces: You might feel a little lonely this week, and this can be okay, this can be so good. This is a week for remembering what it’s like inside your head when there’s no one else around. This is a week for quiet independence and quiet joy. Take walks alone and let your thoughts grow and move and change colors. Open your windows to the sweet early morning air, or take walks under green trees, or read books that make you feel full of light and courage. You can remember who you are. You can return to yourself.
