The cracks in the turquoise run deep, run imperfectly, yet run beautifully. Tumblr is new to me, but I will try and be something of substance, making my thoughts and information, I once believed were cracks, transparent to all, and most importantly beautiful to me.
Plus. Let's face it...who doesn't want to be cracked up?
Talia, a 13 year old battling two aggressive types of cancer, inspires the world with her constant pep and positive attitude toward life. She is infectious! She says that “makeup is her wig” and she spends most of her free time applying makeup to child cancer patients in the hospital. She is now starting her own clothing line, rightfully called “That Bald Chick”, and will be using a portion of the profits to start her own foundation for children with cancer. How much more inspiring can this little girl be?!?!
I am a weightlifter. Don’t believe me? His feet are fleet, but I am strong. I bend, I breathe, I heft the weights of life with ease and grace. The more weight you throw on me, the stronger I grow, carrying life’s loads upon my back. Mine is a strength forged in the fires of burning struggle. It is titanium – malleable but unbreakable. Bring me your burdens and I will lift you up. I am a weightlifter. - Lauren Trebert

What do you do with the mad that you feel When you feel so mad you could bite? When the whole wide world seems oh, so wrong… And nothing you do seems very right?
What do you do? Do you punch a bag? Do you pound some clay or some dough? Do you round up friends for a game of tag? Or see how fast you go?
It’s great to be able to stop When you’ve planned a thing that’s wrong, And be able to do something else instead And think this song:
I can stop when I want to Can stop when I wish. I can stop, stop, stop any time. And what a good feeling to feel like this And know that the feeling is really mine. Know that there’s something deep inside That helps us become what we can. For a girl can be someday a woman And a boy can be someday a man.
