Charlie Hunnam Is An Actual Gift From The Gods

Charlie Hunnam Is An Actual Gift From The Gods

Charlie out here looking like a whole snack.

There are some things you just can't control in this life: weather, other people, what the heart wants, the list goes on. Anyone that knows me, knows that for the past couple of weeks I've been slightly obsessed with an A1 honey named Charlie Hunnam.

This all started when I decided to watch Sons of Anarchy on Netflix and what started out as a binge-watching session one night has now become a full-on obsession. (I'm fine, it's fine, I promise). I've decided to embrace this phase of my life by dedicating this weeks article to the beauty that is Charlie Hunnam. I hope you enjoy going through these gifs just as much as I enjoyed finding them.

He looks ~soft~ here and that hurts me. This is also one of his better looks throughout Sons of Anarchy.

I get it, smoking kills, but LOOK AT HIM.

You better STRUT angrily down that hallway. Angry Jax Teller is something everyone needs in their life.

I mean, come on. Look at those ~eyes~. Also, orange looks great on him, which is good considering his rap sheet in SOA.

Yeah, he gives good nods. He also kills it in those flannels. (Side note: the guy in the back with the sunglasses is 100% me).

*Screams* I really don't need this kind of negativity in my life.

This wasn't originally going to be an article dedicated solely to how good he looks in Sons of Anarchy, but as I said at the beginning of this article: the heart wants what it wants. So, if you like these gifs and you have some free time, and emotions to spare, do yourself a favor and watch Sons of Anarchy on Netflix. I promise you won't regret it.

10 Rupi Kaur Quotes To Help you Deal With Any Situation

"Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder." -Rumi

Rupi Kaur made her debut with milk and honey, becoming a #1 New York Times bestselling author. Despite the fact her poetry was everywhere, I never read the book.

But this Christmas, my old roommate and best friend, Izzy, surprised me with a little gift. I immediately knew it would be a book when she handed me the wrapped rectangle.

Izzy knew once she read milk and honey how much I would enjoy Rupi Kaur's work. When I unwrapped this gift and saw her second collection of poetry, the sun and her flowers, I was elated.

I blazed through the collection in an hour, absorbed by the beauty and power of her words. Kaur's brilliant poems have a way of captivating every thought and evoking raw emotion from any reader.

So without any further ado, here are 10 quotes from the sun and her flowers to help you deal with any situation.

1. Dealing with loss

"it isn't what we left behind

that breaks me

it's what we could've built

had we stayed"

2. Struggling with jealousy

"learning to not envy

someone else's blessing

is what grace looks like"

3. Moving on from someone

"you ask

if we can still be friends

i explain how a honeybee

does not dream of kissing

the mouth of a flower

and then settle for its leaves

- i don't need more friends"

4. Holding onto anger

"wish pure love and soft peace

upon the ones

who've been unkind to you

and keep moving forward

- this will free you both"

5. Recognizing your own power

"what's the greatest lesson a woman should learn?

that since day one. she's already had everything

she needs within herself. it's the world that

convinced her she did not."

6. Feeling inferior to those around you

"i will no longer

compare my path to others

- i refuse to do a disservice to my life"

7. Being self-critical

"the universe took its time on you

crafted you to offer the world

something different from everyone else

when you doubt

how you were created

you doubt an energy greater than us both


8. Experiencing dissatisfaction with life

"when snow falls

i long for grass

when grass frows

i walk all over it

when leaves change color

i beg for flowers

when flowers bloom

i pick them


9. Handling something coming to a close

"why is it

that when the story ends

we begin to feel all of it"

10. Making the most of things

"despite knowing

they won't be here for long

they still choose to live

their brightest lives

- sunflowers"

These simply deliberate words are profoundly powerful when you take a moment to think about what is being said. Kaur is wise beyond her years, and we all should take some time to appreciate her work. the sun and her flowers not only reignited my love for poetry, but it taught me how to take on this world with a greater sense of compassion for myself and for others.

To The Person Who Has Finally Found Their Way

It's about time.

The start was all wrong. You find yourself saying “if only I could go back and change this, maybe things would be different.” In reality, we all know that’s not possible.

Bad things were happening, parents divorcing or losing a loved one. Things couldn’t get any worse for that situation, and then you’re out of money because you had to pay the bills. You lost your job the next day.

And then, things got better.

You kept your head down and kept on trucking along, carrying all that weight with you. You made changes here and there, getting a new job and cutting toxic people from your life. You started putting yourself and your needs first. You set goals for yourself, and stretched yourself thin to reach them.

And now, you’ve made it. Finally.

After all these hardships, after all of the crap you had to go through, you are able to make a name for yourself in this world. Things are finally looking up for you in the best way.

You met a cute person at that café the other day. You might call them, if they don’t have Tinder. You have a nice job, one that you actually enjoy going to and working overtime for.

Some people would say, “Well that’s nothing compared to what I went through…” But that’s not what matters. This is not a competition of “who had it worse” but instead a proud showcasing of how you managed to make something out of nothing.

And now, you move along.

Conquering the world, or city, at your leisure.

Glancing back, you may question how you even survived. Let that fuel you to do even better things in your future endeavors.

If you begin to doubt yourself for even just a moment, don’t. Half of the people who were in a similar situation as you didn’t have the strength to get up and keep moving.

As I grew up, I would do this visual form of self-reflection. I’d go into a room with a mirror and look at myself. I’d close my eyes and think of a time when I was even younger, maybe less than 10-years-old. I’d think of what I was doing at that age, at that time. Gradually working back up to the current day, I’d reflect on all that physical, mental, emotional growth I’ve accomplished in my short time here. And eventually, I’d open my eyes and look at that person in the mirror. I would smile at myself, as if to say “Thank you for reminding me of what was and recognizing what is.”

We don’t know what lies ahead, where we’ll be or what will happen. But what matters is that in the here and now, you are doing the best you can. And when that day comes when you don’t know where to go or what to do, look in the mirror and reflect.

In the words of St. Jerome, “The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.”
