Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.
Good lord, this is the most stark portrayal I’ve seen of this.
Holy crap, over nine years?

Keep telling people not to spend their money on shoes, though. That’ll really help.
This is why it’s entirely reasonable that someone who can’t afford to purchase health insurance or pay college tuition has decent clothing, a “nice” TV (all TVs are “nice” now) or a smartphone. And also why people should stop making presumptions about how other people spend money.

If you’re suffering from depression and are looking for a sign to not go through with ending your life, this is it. This is the sign. We care.
If you see this on your dash, reblog it. You could save a life.
But wait, “black people can’t have blonde hair!” Muahahahahaha I laugh at you white supremacy!!!
Let’s also not lose sight of the fact that the destruction of marine life is making it increasingly difficult for these people to keep their traditional ways of life because they are dependent on the sea.
Cash raised for killer Mo. cop now surpasses Michael Brown donations
August 24, 2014
Online fundraisers for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson surpassed the amount of money raised for Michael Brown’s family as the officer’s supporters gathered at an afternoon rally Saturday.
Supporters of Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., came toBarney’s Sports Pub in south St. Louis.
"Many of us have received death threats toward ourselves and our families," said one speaker, wearing sunglasses, paint beneath her eyes and a baseball cap. "We will not hide. We will no longer live in fear … If you support Darren Wilson, make your voices heard."
She refused to give the media her name, saying “You want my name? I am Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson.
The media has shown a strong bias against Wilson supporters, the speaker said, drawing loud applause from the crowd.
"We share the united belief that officer Wilson’s actions on Aug. 9 were warranted and justified and he has our unwavering support," the woman said.
A crowd-funding page created for Wilson raised $235,010 from 5,902 people before organizers stopped accepting donations Friday after surpassing their goal of $100,000 in four days. The group then opened a new fundraising page, which already has more than $104,000.
This amount surpasses the more than $214,000 raised in support of the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. According to the page, which was set up by Brown family lawyer Benjamin Crump, “the funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf.”
The Support Darren Wilson group, which has more than 58,000 likes on Facebook, encouraged supporters who could not attend the rally to “blow up some Twitter accounts” with photos of supporters and the hashtag #iamdarrenwilson.
Disheartening (though unsurprising) and thoroughly disgusting!
So if u support #iamdarrenwilson u r saying u r a murdering coward police officer. This whoa is me mentality his supporters have is sickening. This man showed Mike Brown no respect no decency no innocent until proven guilty nothing. Mike Brown because he was a black male was guilty as charged for being from the hood and black. So they r receiving death threats so what. This boy parents have to bury him tmmrw. So miss me with the bs.
I don’t give a damn how scared these murder apologists are because it’s their core beliefs that have ultimately led up to the Mike Browns, Ezel Fords and Rekia Boyds dying in the damn streets. To hell with them, Darren Wilson is on paid leave which means he still has a job, money, freedom. He hasn’t been arrested and charged, so there are no legal fees to see about, so his evil ass doesn’t need any money !
