strength <3

what is it? why do we need it? where does it come from?

strength quotation
credit to taylor contarino

strength. i think that

in some ways

i am stronger than i have ever been before.

i think to not be is something i cannot afford.

i think that i have been through a lot

maybe to some a little

but i take all the negativity

solve it inside out like a riddle.

i think my strength makes me who i am

i think it makes me real and raw

to know

i'm not a scam.

i think its refreshing

to know i'm not alone

but to be with myself solely

i can tell how much I've grown

i yearn to be fearless

i yearn to have no fear

i want to be a role model

be better than i was last year

i want to be loved

but i know that starts with me

my heart and my brain

must find a way to agree

to be loved universally

to be loved by my own self

the second is harder than the first

i cant hide my feelings on a shelf

my emotions, bare to see

maybe that's an accomplishment

i'm finally comfortable

let me rejoice in my own acknowledgement

i pray you find strength too

for that is where strength lays

knowing you are content

but wanting to brighten other's days

a light that kindles to light the fire of others. your own bucket is full- you continue on filling the buckets of others with the extra that you have, this is where strength lies- even when your bucket is less than full.

you fill others.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
