My pics from places I live/travel. MY feelings about stuff. I drink wine and am in love with potatoes. It's Football not Soccer and just because someone makes money doing something doesn't mean they are any good at it.

Quote reblogged from From the Heart with 416 notes

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
— Marcus Tullius Cicero (via quotes-shape-us)

Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.

Reasons

I survived high school, my family, being in the military, serving in Afghanistan, growing up in America not fitting the stereotypes and
sistematically being called out for “acting white/talking white” on a regular basis, and a teen pregnancy/adoption- Yet there is a certain entertainer who is worshipped for “surviving” when I can’t figure out what the fuck she survived?

I have lived in 5 different countries, have a Masters degree in Intercultural Conflict Management (it’s exactly hat it sounds like)
and speak 4 languages. I wear my hair the way I do because it’s the hair I was born with, it’s not a political statement or some magical mystical entity that can’t be touched or talked about. I love my hair and am not offended when people in places that have never seen someone of my color ask to touch my hair because when they do and see that it is nothing to be afraid of and nothing strange about it this is one step towards opening peoples minds.

I exercise on a regular basis because it makes me feel good, I don’t give a single actual fuck about what men want in a woman’s body because I know what I want from my body. I don’t read magazines or take advice from “gurus” about anything. I don’t follow trends so maybe I’m out of the loop and I don’t watch 95% of the tv that is imported over here from America because it’s all people wanting to be famous singers or famous chefs or famous idiots. I don’t listen to the radio and have no idea what song is on the charts anywhere. I love house music, and stuff from a time when music was music and singers had to have talent.

Famous people are talented (some of them) and have more money than I will ever have but I would argue the fact that many of them are not truly happy. I never dreamed of being rich but am doing surprisingly well for myself and much better than was expected.

I don’t have children because i do not want any and am in a happy healthy relationship that has lasted 10+years and I am not married because as a little girl I didn’t dream of a white dress and a Prince Charming.

I didn’t suffer from PTSD from my time in Kabul, I suffered from seeing too far behind the curtain and realizing how mean human beings are.

The fact that how many followers one has is now considered an achievement leads me to believe that the country I was born in has officially lost its collective mind.

And the fact that people choose sarcasm and political correctness over empathy and simple good manners is why I just can’t anymore, I’m tired of the debates and the super-labeling of everyfuckingthingtothepointthatimnotevensurewhatraceihavetocallmyselfwhentalkingtootheramericans, I’m tired of twitter philosophers and a billion posts on my feed about everything that’s wrong but never even a hint at a suggestion.

I have a suggestion: go outside people. Turn off computers and cell phones long enough to figure out what makes you happy.

But who would take my advice, I’m not famous don’t have a lot of followers- what the fuck have I done? What do I know about anything-

How to read a George Orwell book:

1. Open book

2. Read book

3. Close book

4. Stare off in to spare for at least 4 consecutive hours questioning politics, media, authority figures and humanity as a whole until your entire perspective of social structure comes crumbling down around you and you wander about reality suddenly aware of your insignificance, ignorance and cattle-like demeanour 

Perfect Description….And still no one listens to him.

You’ll become known for doing what you do. It’s a simple saying, but it’s true…The only way to start being asked to do something you want to do is to start doing that thing on your own.

If you look at the world and say “Yes, there are enough homes for people, yes, there is enough food for people, but if we give it away for free they won’t have earned it and the economy will collapse.” Then you have chosen money (a constructed medium of exchange) over living beings who only want to continue living in peace and safety.

And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system.

Sweat

That feeling after running where every part of my body is covered in sweat. I was on a treadmill so I didn’t go anywhere but I kind of did. And feeling proud of myself for working out. There are benefits lots of benefits of working out but the best one is the how happy I am with myself after I finish.
