The “What I Be” Project-
People are not their insecurities. They are not their stereotypes. They are not their actions, or their beliefs. They aren’t even their mistakes. Who they are, who YOU are, is based solely on who you choice to be. It is not any of those things that define you. How others see and treat you do not define you. The only one who that can do so is you. Being insecure is unfortunately part if like; everyone experiences them. So embrace them! Don’t let them hold you back, SHOUT them from the heavens, and prove to the world that insecure or not YOU ARE YOU!

always reblog.

this is great <3

I wish white ppl would stop appropriating vodou/voodou and i wish everyone would stop using voodoo as cutecreepy adjectives for their cupcakes or names for their rats lmao. Its a deeply rooted mixture of ancient african and taino religion that should be respected not ur edgy playtoy and sexy switch up to ur boring mayonnaise life.

YES THANK YOU.

"How are you so confident?" "I’m an asshole!" Okay? It’s my good time, and my good life, despite what you think of me. I live my life, because I dare. I dare to show up when everyone else might hide their faces and hide their bodies in shame. I show up because I’m an asshole, and I want to have a good time. And my mother and my father love me. They wanted the best life for me, and they didn’t know how to verbalize it. And I get it. I really do. They were better parents to me than they had themselves. I’m grateful to them, and to my fifth grade class, because if they hadn’t made me cry, I wouldn’t be able to cry on cue now. If I hadn’t been told I was garbage, I wouldn’t have learned how to show people I’m talented. And if everyone had always laughed at my jokes, I wouldn’t have figured out how to be so funny. If they hadn’t told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty. And if they hadn’t tried to break me down, I wouldn’t know that I’m unbreakable.

THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half. 

I shared this video the other day, and if you didn’t watch it, maybe you should give it a try now. It will give you a different perspective on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

During WWII, Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
