No one ever tells you that people will leave your life, unannounced. Sometimes they leave the earth, sometimes they just leave you. Things continue. Tomorrow you will wake up and the sun will be kissing your eyelids and it will be a new day for you to drink too much coffee and reread an old book. You will be okay. No one ever tells you that, either. Days will melt together like some candle you burned down to scraps, and seasons will change. You will fall in and out of love with yourself more times than you’ll ever be able to count. It is important to take the time to appreciate your own fingerprints, your own skin. There will be days when it is all you have.
never forget to be kind to yourself. (via splitterherzen)


Emma Watson: Accio Equality!

You really need to watch Emma Watson’s brilliant and moving speech from the floor of the United Nations, as part of the UN HeForShe campaign, on the importance of feminism and the right of every human, regardless of gender, to become the most complete version of themselves. It’s not science, but it’s more important than anything I could possibly share with you today.

She offers a formal invitation to the men of the world to join in the efforts for worldwide gender equality.

To Emma: Invitation accepted.

Are you with us?



I look up — many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big — but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity.

That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you.

That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive…
