Take A Moment And Smile

TAMAS So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.

The only thing that I saw was incredible acclaim and praise and that’s just me going off of what I’m plugged into which is my fan base of real girls out in the world living their lives and when they saw their favorite actress get up in front of the UN and say what she said, I wish when I was younger, I wish when I was 12 years old I’d been able to watch a video of my favorite actress explaining in such an intellectual, beautiful, poignant way the definition of feminism because I would’ve understood it and then earlier on in my life I would’ve proudly claimed that I was a feminist because I would’ve understood what the word means. So many girls out there say “I’m not a feminist” cause they think it means something angry or disgruntled or complaining. They picture like rioting and picketing, it is not that at all, it just simply means that you believe that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities and to say that you’re not a feminist means that you think men should have more rights and opportunities than women. I just think a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it is I think an incredible thing and I’m happy to live in a world where that happened.

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.

—George Bernard Shaw

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.

—Charles R. Swindoll

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’

—Lena Dunham (x)

Why I love her and why you should too.
