The struggle is real 💜 (@90s.daily)
You just sort of accept that you are getting older at some point and that the hourglass is moving...it’s trickling down into piles of anxious thought and stillness that feels never-ending...
But life is this really beautiful enigma to us. We don’t really get it but we have to accept it and then of course there is everyone else who is there too...They appear to have it all figured out—so together. But we are all just playing the same tape over and over on repeat, except nobody knows how it will end and that’s the crazy part. Just remember that everyone gets anxious. It’s true. It’s not a special trait. It’s a side-effect. You’re going to be ok 💙. PS. Know this movie?
while it sounds very self-improvement-y to say that our emotions are a choice, that we get to choose how we feel, etc… when we look at how our brain works, we very quickly see that this is far from the case. outside information travels to the emotional brain much faster than it does to the logical brain, which means more often than not we are experiencing an emotion before our logical brain even has time to catch up.
forcing ourselves to not feel a certain way or to ignore how we are feeling is a form of gaslighting and it diminishes our capacity to heal.
that’s not to say that we are at the whims of our emotions.
and I am definitely not saying we have to stay forever in how we feel.
where we do have choice is in what we decide to do with the emotion. how we process it, tend to it, listen to it, honor it, address it, etc. and the more awareness we bring to what we are feeling, the more choice we have. because our emotions are data, not direction. they are not telling us what is actually happening, rather they are simply informing us of how we are perceiving what is happening. that distinction is powerful. and the more we give ourselves space to respond rather than reacting, the more we get to decide how we want our lives to be.

440 pairs of women's shoes were hung on one of the city walls in Istanbul this week to draw attention to femicide in the country. This is the number of women murdered by men in Turkey in 2019 (via @hypemuslim)
Last week, several images of @JustinpjTrudeau in blackface and brownface were brought to light, causing quite the controversy for the Canadian Prime Minister. One of the photos depicts Trudeau dressed as an Arab wearing brown makeup all over his entire body. HE WAS 29-YEARS-OLD when he wore that costume, yet he says he had no idea that it was racist at the time. 🤔🤨 BULLSHIT. There is not a chance in hell that a well-educated, almost 30-year-old, Canadian teacher didn’t know that brown and blackface were racist in 2001. NOT. A. FUCKING. CHANCE.
My dad is a racist asshole. Really, I can’t stand him because of how racist and misogynistic he is. But I have a very clear memory of my dad dressing up as Michael Jordan for Halloween in the early nineties. I was about 5-years-old at this time, and when he put his costume on, I remember asking him why he didn’t paint his skin black to look more like MJ. My racist piece of shit father immediately said that would be inappropriate, and I learned right then and there that blackface was wrong. If my racist asshole of a father knew that blackface was wrong in the early nineties, Justin Trudeau sure as hell knew that it was wrong in 2001. Trudeau is lying. Period. Given that he has trampled all over indigenous rights during his time as Prime Minister, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am. I thought he was better than this.
Anyway, Canada’s general election is in a few weeks, and Trudeau’s conservative opponent, Andrew Scheer, is apparently more racist than this, as he supports white nationalists and has anti-immigrant sentiments. As an American white dude, I’m not about to tell Canadians of color how to vote in this election, so y’all do with this information what you will.
Heading to Hamilton Ontario today for the launch of this book, essential reading for everyone, women and men — Do join us!

‘For three years Betsy McGregor interviewed 95 women across Canadian politics about their decision to put their name on the ballot, the challenges they faced and what they learned.
The result is the book "Women on the Ballot" — part short stories delving into the lives of remarkable women, and part road map to inspire more women to step into politics.’

Floating above the clouds
Roof made with the rainbows
World of my dreams
I am building it very gently
With extra care
And more stronger than before
It don't have windows
Because I like fresh thoughts coming right
On my coffee table
Doors have one way entry only
People who live to walk out
Are not invited
I decorate my walls with memories
And light up the room
With colours of my hardwork
There is no room for drama and trauma
Drawers are filled with imagination here
We take happy pills before bed
And dream of endless summer there
My world is still building and growing each day
Above the clouds
Away from this world
Where it's meant to be
• TALK 01 •
⚡️On vous a présenté le warm-up du vendredi, la soirée du samedi au @jokerspubangers49, les créatrices du pop-up store (il nous reste encore des surprises), il est temps maintenant de vous balancer la programmation des talks du samedi 12 octobre qui auront lieu à @latelierdartsappliques !
. ⚡️Cette semaine on vous présente les badass babes du premier talk, qui aura lieu de 10h30 à 12h30 sur le thème suivant : L'entrepreneuriat au féminin, partage d'expérience !
On aura la chance de discuter avec 4 entrepreneures locales, et c'est le tour avec plaisir (et fierté) qu'on les met en lumière, en commençant par : @carointhesixties 🔥
. 🎙Elle vous en parle dès aujourd'hui : "Après 8 ans d'expérience dans la communication globale et digitale, j'ai créé en janvier 2018 l'agence @LeLapinBlanc_lagence , spécialisée réseaux sociaux.
L’envie d’entreprendre, ce n’est pas quelque chose que j’avais au fond de moi. Lorsque l’opportunité s’est présentée, j’ai sauté à pieds joints en murmurant ‘j’y vais mais j’ai peur’’. Rassurons-nous, avoir peur est une très bonne chose : cela montre que l’on est conscient du challenge, des enjeux et des objectifs, et que l’on fera tout pour les atteindre."
. 📢 Le pitch : Se lancer dans la création d’une entreprise demande une grande motivation et beaucoup de courage. L’idée est ici de donner la parole aux Angevines qui en ont fait l’expérience pour qu’elles partagent leur vécu, témoignent de leurs réussites et de leurs difficultés, racontent si le fait d’être une femme a eu un impact dans leur parcours… Face à d’autres Angevines, peut-être futures entrepreneures elle-même, nous voulons engager la discussion et pourquoi pas susciter ou encourager des vocations !
. 🎟Sur réservation !
10€ la journée / 22€ en pass week-end (lien dans la bio)

J'ai eu la chance de grandir dans une famille très ouverte à la discussion et à l'education sexuelle...
Pourtant, quand j'ai grandi, j'avais honte de ressentir du désir.
Honte de parler de ma sexualité, de peur d'être jugée. .
J'avais même honte de me toucher, oui oui 🙄
J'entendais autour de moi de nombreuses personnes malveillantes juger les femmes à leur pratique sexuelle, ou encore à leur partenaire, leur nombre de partenaire, alors je preferais ne rien dire du tout à ce sujet, et tout garder pour moi.
J'ai eu des relations serieuses, mais aussi des aventures, et aussi des personnes juste pour un soir. Et ça n'est pas une honte, et ça ne fait pas de moi une personne mauvaise.
La sexualité quand on est une femme reste un sujet tabou, même si aujourd'hui on ouvre de plus en plus la parole à ce sujet sur les reseaux sociaux, ça reste encore un problème dans la vraie vie de tous les jours.😑
Non, ta sexualité ne définit pas ta valeur. Ne laisse personne te juger, te traiter, te sous-estimer à propos de ça.
Aujourd'hui, j'ai l'impression que l'on a une pression assez ambigue... d'une part, il faudrait être "sage" et ne pas avoir ni trop de désir ni trop de partenaire, mais d'autre part, il faudrait être une experte du domaine... 🤷♀️🤷♀️
N'oublie pas une chose : chacun y va à son rythme, il n'y a aucune honte, il n'y a pas de meilleure ou de moins bien.
Mais par pitié, communique ! Communique sur tes désirs, sur tes peurs, sur tes envies, sur tes fantasmes. Sinon qui devinera?
Si j'avais une chose à dire : Libére la femme en toi, et ne laisse pas le regard des autres te brider. .
Si tu as envie qu'on parle davantage de ces sujets ici ou sur Youtube, n'hésite pas à me laisser tes suggestion en commentaire ou en privé ❤
Du love 😘
Noticed women get judged completely differently to men when it comes to dating apps? 👩🏼 Oh she must be desperate
👱🏽♂️He’s such a player
👩🏼Why can’t she get a date without an app?
👱🏽♂️He’s raking in dates on that app!
👩🏼 God her photos are too revealing
👱🏽♂️Check out his six pack on there 🖕To yet more ridiculously sexist opinions.
Get the app. Put your fav photos up there. Have a date every night if you want to. Message first. Stick up your fav bikini shot.
This is what my mind felt like a few days ago. I upped my self-care like no other. Nature. Journaling. Reading. Pausing. And eventually, after much inner resistance, a yoga class with my favorite teacher. Her voice felt soothing as she was guiding us through a meditation, asking a very simple, thoughtful question: how can you love yourself a little bit more today?
For me, it meant reminding myself that it's okay to have "off" days, while giving myself permission to fully feel, instead of pushing through. And the moment I did that, it was so easy to release the "negative" stuff that was trapped in my mind. Self-care isn't about surviving, it's about thriving.
I'm asking you the same question: how can you love yourself a little bit more today?

🖤 « Isn't it amazing how family-oriented killer whales are? They wouldn't be very successful out there in the big wide ocean without their moms and sisters and brothers! Once a female orca gives birth to a calf, that calf is going to stick by her side for life. Family pods are the core unit of orca society, and they are headed by the female matriarch. She's generally a wealth of information since she's been around the longest, and she can show her family the ropes as far as where to travel to find salmon, best times of year for certain areas, foraging strategies, how to use echolocation...the list goes on, but momma's the boss! »
we all need a little self motivation. believe in yourself, trust the process. #bossbabemiami

We need feminism because we are still told that boys HIT us because they LIKE us.
We need feminism because 50% of 10 year old girls’ biggest worry is their body.
We need feminism because universities teach “How to avoid getting raped” instead of “DON’T RAPE” at freshman orientation.
We need feminism because SCIENCE toys shouldn’t be in the BOYS’ section.
We need feminism because we still tell our sons to HAVE FUN and our daughters to BE SAFE.
We need feminism because some people still think they don’t.
With each purchase of this tee, we donate part of profits to NOW, the National Organization for Women Foundation, the largest feminist grassroots organization in the US, focusing on women's rights issues including economic justice, pay equity, reproductive rights and justice, women's health and more.
"I am interested in multiplicity and overlay – multiple logics that may clash. In my work, there is always a part of me that is interested in abstracting bodies, ideas and references. In the process of abstracting, I feel there is something that references an understanding of queerness and blackness as modes of production. (...) I hope to explore a tension between moments of erasure and hypervisibility, and the seemingly impossibility of escaping this pattern when black and queer in the West. I am conscious of queer artists of colour often becoming a screen of projection. I feel you are asked to take on board all the non-white issues and all the non-straight issues; you become the voice of the oppressed. You are supposed to address gentrification, Brexit and social violence etc… People often don’t realise that being here - and making yourself visible - is enough to put you at risk."
Paul Maheke, in conversation with Ellen Greig (Chisenhale Gallery)

Hot girl summer is drifting away into #FinancialFreedomFall . September to me has always been the real start to the year, the time for goal setting and resolutions. If you want to buy a house in 3 years, but you aren’t doing anything today to build a down payment, what are you going to do today, next year, and in five years to help you achieve your goals? 🥅 🏋️♀️
I started a process where I set goals for myself, and then EACH week I write down one thing I’m doing to help me reach each of my goals. That's how pHERsonal Finance Day has gotten off the ground! What do you do?
Comment with your goals and what you are doing to achieve them in this new year below. ⬇️

Judith has arrived! Join us on Saturday, September 28 at 1:00 pm as we welcome John Singleton Copley’s 1770-72 original oil portrait of Judith Sargent Murray back to Cape Ann! The portrait will be on view through March 2020 as part of the exhibition “Our Souls Are by Nature Equal to Yours: The Legacy of Judith Sargent Murray” in collaboration with @terraamericanart and @sargenthousemuseum. During her lifetime, Murray’s advocacy for equality between the sexes made her as well known as Abigail Adams and Martha Washington. Today Murray’s story continues to resonate, inspiring women and men alike to work for equality and justice for all.
Unveiling celebration is free for CAM/SHM members or with Museum admission. Space is limited; reservations required. More info and register at
