Hello, Whitney and Laurel here!
We have created this blog to show that everyone, despite differences in opinion, body type, or believes, we are all beautiful. We hope you will view yourselves in a more postive light.
“The unnecessary retouching of actress Jennifer Lawrence: her face, arms, torso, and legs are digitally slimmed down. A disturbing practice that is unfortunately really common in magazines and advertisements. No wonder many girls and women feel self-conscious about their weight - when all the images around us depict a One and Only beauty standard… that is often artificially created.”
omg this!! i will always reblog stuff for the boys because i hate that even people who support recovery and want to raise awareness of certain mental health issues seem to leave them out and what they’re going through is just as valid and they, as people, are just as important. sending some love to all the boys out there <3
people on tumblr have begun to realize that boys are insecure too, but many of the people I know in real life don’t realize this. Even I didn’t realize this until I found out my closest friend used to be suicidal. This is for him, for him to know that I still care about him and I always will, even if we don’t talk anymore <3
“Do not be deceived: ‘Evil company corrupts good habits.’ ” (1 Corinthians 15:33, NKJV)
Sometimes, in order to embrace the destiny God has in store, you have to be willing to make some changes in your life. You have to be willing to examine where you are and what you need to move forward. This may mean that you need to change some friends that you’re spending time with. Maybe they were fine for a season in your life, but now you’ve outgrown them. This is a new season, and in order for you to rise higher, you have to break away from relationships that are limiting you. You have to develop some new relationships with people who are going to pull you up and inspire you to rise higher.
And, this doesn’t just mean separating yourself from people who are holding you back spiritually. I’ve found that if you’re the smartest one in your group, your group is too small. Find people who will challenge you to stretch to the next level and become everything God’s created you to be. Remember, he who walks with the wise becomes wise. Choose your friends wisely and don’t be deceived. Surround yourself with people who will cause you to rise higher so you can live in the destiny God has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father God, thank You for Your grace and mercy. Thank You for the good plan You have for my life. Help me choose my friends and companions wisely so that I can continue to move forward in the destiny You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
