We Lie the Most to Ourselves

I did nothing this weekend so today I will be working my ass off and then I will rinse and repeat for the rest of all time. Or something.

We have places that can be marked on a map with bright red Xs and beneath those bright red Xs are memories and moments we have shared. This could mean…

Roxane Gay. Just amazing.

Lupita Nyong’o Covers Elle France’s July 2014 Summer Issue.

Despite there only being three picture, the best thing about these shots are how bold, positive, vibrant and unapologetic Lupita comes across in these photos. Too often, mainstream women’s magazine have women repeating the similar poses, with expressions we’ve seen time and time again, and with the same reserved or forlorn look in their eyes.

Lupita wears Giambattista Valli and was photographed by by Alexi Lubomirski.

“It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.”
